We accidentally climbed this small hill meaning instead to head for Geallaig. The going is easy and pleasant if boggy in places. The dog would probably put that as pleasantly boggy if dry in places, if she could.

Despite the modest climb there are really good views all around including the Cairngorms, Lochnagar, Mount Keen and, of course, Geallaig!
