My one and only time on the summit and what a dramatic and surprising hill and a fantastic viewpoint. Quite an easy path up to the north but with a wife and dog unfriendly fence to climb. I went to a point just south of Coire Scamadal and cut west but the pinnacled ridge that runs north east / south west looks a feasible scrambly route up. Didn't fancy it in the snow though.

Video a bit shaky/crappy as I was still getting to grips at the time. Some nice afternoon sun at the summit though.

Could possibly get a good winter sunrise picture from that spot.
