Parked up at the John Muir Trust car park at Braes of Foss. Took the newly furbished path until it crossed a landrover track. Followed this track and on to the stream Allt Mor, followed the stream West along the South face of Schiehallion. This was a ...great route to take as I was the only other walker there, it meant that the walk would be a nice circular one too. Passed numerous Sheilings enroute and met the local gamekeeper who was out stalking deer. He had just shot one about 200m up the hill from where I was. About 5k up stream I took on the SW face of Schiehallion, walking through thick heather, I finally got onto the ridge and there was a well trodden path from here to the 1083m summit. On the top it was like Princes Street, there was a large group celebrating one of them completing the Munro's, well done! Champers on ice! I then took the tourist route back. Very rocky for the first kilometre, then then walking got easier when joining onto the new path. Weather was great, sunshine and not much wind.
