Walked this hill on a day out with my girlfriend on her 29th birthday! The weather was was infact a little too hot and the humidity terrible.

The path to the loch was easy enough with no real difficulty! Although a little difficult on the section up the hill with streches of sandy path and stone steps.

We reached the top before 3 and had something to eat and celebrated with a piece of her birthday cake which we carried all the way there was little visibility from the top due to mist.

We made our return and got back to the car park around 5 and went back to the moulin inn and enjoyed a refreshment there! As a reminder to others always carry plenty of water etc on days like we had you will defenitely need it.

This was my 1st Corbett last year. Great weekend as we camped just past the Queen's View on the Saturday night after doing it.
