Steep from the off, even the walk up to Dhiseig House. It had rained heavily prev 2 days so Alt Dhiseig and waterfalls v full and cascades dramatic. Sadly path like a stream. Wet & misty at first but soon cleared. Views back along Loch Na Keal and Ulva grand.

From lower slopes peak looked deceptively close but the increasingly steep ascent provided necessary reality check. Stream crossing awkward due to spate. Managed OK..

Mid section toughest as steep scree- and extra slippery when wet. Final pull more gradual and last bit of summit ridge almost level with great views down steep precipice to wide glen below.

Summit swathed in cloud - the only cloud for miles - but it opened periodically to allow glimpses of the superb 360 degree views.

:D

Saw family of 3 White Tailed Eagles on way down - 2 huge, 1 just big.
