A windy but dry day for the walk, even got some sunshine along the way.
Good steady walk to base of the climb, but navigation skills failed and 'missed' the main path up to the summit. Took a path round the base of the Munro. Ended up going up the steep side which was a challenge - had to be careful but got to the summit in a reasonable time (added about 0.5 miles to walk and around 45 mins due to steep climb) . Lovely views from the top.
Pleasant descent down the correct path !!
A good one to climb when there is good weather.

The view towards the Devils Point from up there is amazing isnt it. Love this area in general.
