Parked in layby 94 on the A9 and set off about 9.30am on a fairly clear day on 1st March 2012
This walk is ideal for using a mountain bike at the start as there is a one hour walk on a boring well constructed track which runs from the start all the way to the locked private bothy where it could be left. I reckon usung a bike would save about a total of 90 minutes round trip.The hill itself was just a nice walk out and probably the easiest munro I have ever done. I have never seen so many grouse and a number of white hares. We started in nice clear weather which held as far as the summit when the cloud came in and the rain started visibility 5 metres. Headed back down to Stac Meall Cuaich for lunch then back to the bothy for that one hour walk back to the car. As I said a nice days walking but not one I would repeat. Time taken 5 hours.
