Pleasant evening stroll from the car park to the north west. Slightly concerned about running into mountain bikes coming down the way we were going up but no-one to be seen until we got back to the car.

Good views all around apart from west which is blocked off by Cairn William. Still, Clachnaben, Bennachie, Tap o' Noth and a bit of Lochnagar all prominent.

Lots of cobwebs on the ground when we got back to the car.

Something different for us -about the only hill we could climb in the time available that we hadn't been to before and well worth the effort.
