Walked this hill with my daughter Jade. Climb to the summit took 2 hours. Spent 1 hour on the top and descent took 1-30 mins. This was our first Corbett. :D :D

Cheers Alan. It is a good walk with a great view from the summit. jade liked this hill better than Ben Lomond. :lol: Though it was a nice sunny day, you still had to watch out for the leg grabbing Bog! :lol:

Great day out. Sun was very stong, good job we had sunscreen on. Remember when your on the hills you are more exposed to the elements. We tend to to forget this. :shock:
