If you are short of time this Corbett is a quick way of achieving lots of height and getting some fantastic all round views from about halfway all the way up to the top. We did it on a smoky day with MWIS giving us a 20% chance of cloud-free tops. Thankfully we were lucky, apart from a little drizzle. The views of the Aonach Eagach just got bigger and bigger as we went up.

Boggy track in the first part, and loose and steep up the top, otherwise fine. Sorry but forgot camera, but I'm posting really because the Walkhighlands report mentions a guideline time of 4-6 hrs. I think this needs amending! We didn't really stop, but neither were we particularly fast.
