Fraoch's second Munro and still not managed to acquire any volunteers/victims. Set off from the car park at Inveruglas and headed past Sloy Hydro and up the access road past the substation towards the dam. Turned right at the small cairn to mark the path. Steep going from this point on until near the summit where it ridges out. Far more gentler near the top making it an easy stroll to the trig point and past this to the summit. Good day for a walk with only a couple of drizzly showers and about 30 seconds of hail. Visibility was largely good but there was times when the cloud level fell. Only met 1 person coming down the hill and 1 coming up, thought this was a little unusual considering it was such a good day. :crazy:

It looks like a nice hill, John. I'm thinking of climbing this one next month.
