A surprisingly easy-going and pleasant walk, given the reputation of this peak. The paths up and down the valley-sides are lovely, but even the two or three miles on the summit of flat peat are alright in the dry. It's the easy tussocky sort of bog - challenging leaping between the dry bits, but not relentless wet steps, and several interesting rock formations to catch the eye.

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
