After a week walking with friends this climb provided much of the satisfaction of its higher neighbours. The top is isolated enough to offer a great range of views and looks directly to Garbh Bheinn, probably one of Scotland's finest small mountains. An early boost for the first, and steepest, 100m of climb is on a rubble 'path' over the water pipes supplying the hydro plant.

Navigation is straightforward and maintaining a reasonable height avoids the bog of the glen floor. All dangers are obvious on the outward route but extra care must be taken on the descent. This is deer country and their paths can be helpful, but remember they don't avoid water or large leaps. If chatter is kept to a minimum deer may be evident and there is the possibility of sighting golden eagles. Additionally, in clear weather the views are exceptional and include The Cuillins, Ben Resipol, Ben Nevis, Glencoe ranges, Ben Cruachan and the Arran Mountains.
