  • It's fairly straightforward but please don't be complacent. If not prepared and if weather closes in it can be a bad place to be. Take food and water. Park in the carpark and a fairly good path takes ...  more »
  • Left the car park at 7.30 am raining and surprisingly cold for 2nd of July, no problem was ready , the bolder field as you get higher is neither fun ascending or descending, weather closed in up top, ...  more »
  • This was an easy walk, near the summit were fields of quartzite boulders where the trail was hard to see, but the occasional cairn keeps you on the up and up. Trail was easy to follow downhill. Total ...  more »

  • Beautiful I'm not a hill walker but I made it up and down in 3hours with stops included. Definitely need proper walking shoes as right at the top no set path just lots of rock to clamber over.
  • Great peak, but very rocky to get to the top - you really should be wearing good boots/shoes. The path to near the summit is very well maintained, but to get to the top requires some clambering over large rocks with no path. Worth it though!
  • Gorgeous, but while it may be one of the "easiest" Munros, that is very much a relative concept - I was an overweight smoker at the time I made the top, and really struggled, feeling the after effects in my legs for the next four days! I'd thought because I could happily cover long distances on foot, going up a mountain wouldn't be too much harder, but different muscle groups were involved, ones I hadn't really tested in years. Off the smokes now, and I will try again soon to see how much of a difference that makes!
  • Turned up on a beautifully sunny day in Mid September with my two Scottish Terriers for a walk. The path up is easily traversable although as you go up there are a lot of rocky steps. If you can get up... do it! The views are simply stunning with views across to the Cairngorms and further afield.
  • This is a spectacular mountain at the heart of the highlands. It has far reaching and panoramic views due to it's isolation from surrounding mountains. The carpark at the foot of the mountain is convenient and the footpath is well maintained and simple to follow. However, be prepared for a rocky last half hour during ascent; it becomes very boulderous.
