Started from Pitlochry in fog, just above where the BYV car park is the mist starts to clear and when on path near the moors you in sunshine! Clear all the way with fab views of the Tummel valley in fog. The stone staircase is hard work as it takes about 40 mins to climb an uneven path so you have to keep you wits about you up and down or you could lose your footing. However, the effort is worth it and when at the top the views are great. We even got a photo of a brocken spectre!
The car park is small and always full but you can park at the bottom of the road by the houses (bungalows) as there are no yellow lines.
