It's a cracker of a hill done with little effort, if your in the area and have a couple of hours to spare and the sky is clear, go for it. As you say, great to get out, but just did it in time, I see Glenshee snow gates are closed today

Hi RicKamila, a wee gem of a hill for the camera if the weather is kind to you, and it won't take much effort to climb either!

Hi Sarah86, a lovely wander, and nice to get out. I like the view to Glen Ey as well and further up nearer the summit, would also make a great picture, early morning or late evening, not far for your Penny either!

It isn't really worth looking at other routes too hard though - I approached from further up Glen Quoich and almost drowned in the waist-deep heather! I'd go for this route next time.
The tracks make for comfortable walking, gaining height quite quickly, but once your off the second track there is a bit of heather bashing, not not for long, and to be honest I have come across a lot worse. Like you I'd climb this little gem again and again
