Had this little hill in mind for a day when I fancied a wee trip out. A long trip for a wee (ish) hill :wink: Stopped at the popular spot on the A82 to take some photos of the blackmout as the sun was rising and then off via Fort Bill for a coffee and erm MacDonalds!!

Fed and watered I headed up past Loch Lochy and to Kilfnnan.



There was a nice layer of cloud sitting over the Great Glen and only a few showers passed over, although the hills further west and north were clagged in. I still enjoyed some good views and recon this hill could provide a great view point in clear weather.

Was joined by this snow bunting a little later en route down :)

A wee note - the style over the fence on the (very boggy on the day I went up) path takes some care to cross as it is falling apart.....
