was my toughest Munro to date, not because it was physically
demanding but rather the horizontal rain that pounded on top
of the car as I sat in the layby made me think "Why?"
had taken the day off work and had told my wife and friends
that I was going hillwalking..... and no one volunteered to
join me. I convinced myself it would be a good opportunity to
test the worth of my waterproofs and set off into the damp -
it was a struggle.
walk itself is straight forward with a good path all the way
to the top where I believe there are superb views of Badendoch.....
I'll return in the summer months, when no doubt the mountain
will throw in some snow for my comments of it being an easy
hillwalk..... that will teach me.
in the one of the laybys (number 94) just off the A9, the
gate leading up to the path has a map mounted to show the
route to the summit.
the path which runs alongside the aqueduct, you will pass
the dam after about half an hour and soon after you will
catch sight of Loch Chuaich and a private bothy at grid
the bothy the path running NW up the hill to the summit
(gr 717879, 951m) is clearly visible and well worn.
only 600m of ascent this is a relatively easy munro, that can
be used to squeeze in a quick morning or afternoon on the hill
when the whole day is not available. I will definitely be back
in the summer to hopefully see more than 20 metres in any given
