Excellent walk, very easy to follow. The views over Loch Ness were absolutely fabulous - but it was very cold :roll: and windy on the top. This was my first ever hillwalk, and inspired me to try Ben Wyvis.

This was also my first Scottish hillwalk, although I have done quite a few since then. Was back recently and loved the autumn colours. It has a real "get away from it all" feel to it after the relative business of Drum and the Great Glen. I'd recommend this walk to anyone fancying a shortish outing with a proper hill and great views.

A local hill for me, living in Inverness, and as you've both said, a very pleasant outing with a real hill feel to it and superb views back across Loch Ness. No real route-finding problems for novices either. Well worth doing.

I've been wanting to do that hill for ages - where did you go up from?

This one's also very high on my hit list, being so close to me as well. My first Graham perhaps? We'll see what happens...

MC - nearly everyone climbs it by the route described here. Click on the bit next to where it says 'Walk report for...' to go to the route description / map.
