Done as per SMC Grahams and Donalds book p.22, with tweak at finish of joining the outward route at forest track end rather than a plod through the forest itself. Tough day, windswept ridge, tempertures down to -5 on the tops and much of the walk on soft ground and bog. With hindsight, the car could probably have been driven to the forest track end. This would shorten the walk considerably. As would the use of a bike.

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.
