Started off at 7am from the car park at Inveruglas with my faithful dog Fraoch and headed along by the Hydrostation, up the road by the Substation and after another 1/2 mile or so headed off down the forestry Road to the left. Followed this road for another 1/4 mile or so before following the track to the right through the grass up towards the summit. The next 1/4 mile was pretty soft under foot until the ascent to the first wee shoulder. After this the going was pretty firm. Followed the path up past the 3 false summits until getting to the top. Some light scrambling at parts but easy enough with only one part that the dog needed a little assistance

Had the whole hill to myself other than a few sheep. Never met anyone till about 1/2 way down so a nice quiet Sunday hillwalk. Defo a good wee climb to get the calves pumping

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
