Weather excellent. Sunny. Cloud above summits. Excellent visibility. Could see Ben Nevis and out to the islands and down to Ailsa Craig. Could see way past Ben Lomond. Wherever it was, it was flat. Would need to check a map to see where exactly/
Route up was per website and Munros book. It's narrow early on and doesn't appear to be well used but it opens out. Some scrambling required but nothing major. The steepness and rockiness of the ascent was the reason for not descending the same way. Had done Beinn Ime before so retraced my steps and came off early straight down to Narnain Boulders which was a lot easier on the knees! Lots of huge boulders on the way. Must find out more about the nature of the rock because it appears to be very laminated but incredibly twisted.
