Parking space was full at 11.10 am - had to park up the road a bit.
Sunny but not too cold for the whole walk - needed a fleece at most. Some snow patches, but not too much.
Only wildlife was a number of grouse.
Good views across glen to Carn a Gheoidhe. From summit, big drop across to Beinn Iutharn Bheag and Mhor nearby. Glas Tulaichean looked impressive behind. Cairnwell looked minor compared to Glas Maol in distance.
Could cycle up track until path up hill.
