Gave my polish friend a buzz and asked if he wanted to come along, lets do it , good views apperently he answered.
Going over the cabrach it was a white out but when we parked up the sky started to clear and we could see two other souls already marching up.
Very boggy to almost the summit , there had been a lot of rain in the area recently , not a problem to roxy "My dog"
An easy climb apart from the bogs, i would recomend it for anybody starting out on hill walks.
Snow started to fall again so after a few more pics we made our descent. When i got home i was out in the garden suning myself what a diffrence, hope you like the pics.

Went up there 2 years ago. Hated the climb up as we got caught in severe bog and mud, but the views at the summit made up for the hard work.

You'll like the Tap o' Noth. Nice and easy climb with superb views. There's a nice concret slab directly in front of you as you reach the top thats perfect for relaxing and admiring the views from.
The house next to the car park is a bit eiree though, still trying to work out if anyone lives there. Kamila thinks its an old man who never leaves the house but peers through the windows. Freaks her out
If you are lucky too, you'll get a fly past of some Lossie RAF planes!! If its propeller planes or Hawks, wave at them and they usually dip their wings as they pass.
