Last Monday we attempted this hill but couldn't get over the river, however on this attempt we knew exactly what fire break to take which would lead us to the bridge. We set off from Craigfoinn firstly taking the track and then turning left onto another track before taking the second firebreak down to the bridge. We then made our way over to the ridge across some boggy uneven terrain and over a couple of humps before reaching Mullwharchar. We returned the same way.

Read your description of the worst terrain you've encountered on the first attempt :crazy: , well done on getting it down in the end JC. I've always loved the name of this hill. You gonna hurry up and get the 100th Sub out the way!? :lol:
