Tremendous conditions, just as for Beinn Dorain the previous day, and a great little climb from the Rest and be Thankful. The walk was comfortably completed in 4 hours, but the wee scramble just before the summit requires a bit of care, and the plateu itself would be a nightmare in mist as the path peters out amidst a maze of hummocks and dips. Luckily we picked a great day for it. 8)
