With the weather "marginal" and cloud from about 600m, after a tiring and long drive up from Norfolk yesterday, this short walk provided a pleasant "loosener" for the week ahead. Walked up from Dalrigh following the road east and south to the main track which was followed WSWest and then upwards until striking up eastwards to Lochan Fiarach from the gate across the main track (just after the paths kinks left and right). From the lochan its an easy enough stroll up to the summit and on to the dolerite "wall" and its viewpoint. I returned by the same route.
