I am afraid that I am not big on heights, hours, distances.....I grew up in the Scots hills but now live in the fens and so like a lot so Scotland's visitors I am not as hill fit as those who rush past all walking sticks and stop watches!
However, this hill is quite do-able if you allow yourself time. The rewards are huge for us sligtly less fit folk. Pony hoof prints attest to where the stalkers have been with these foot sure native highland ponies and the most handsome ptarmigan lives on the bolder field! Dove grey and fluffy white legs he strutted his stuff back and forward for us. His camoflage is perfect but he was pointed out for us by my working spaniel in the fabulous ancient landscape. Surely this is the true joy of the mountains? It certainly made the 14 hour drive worthwhile for me.

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.
