Been a slow Munro year this year, I've been getting through most of the closest ones and today ticked another one nor far from where Iive heading up Glas Tulaichean for my 40th Munro and Moss' 38th. Aside from having to cross the water at the end of the old railway line to rejoin the main track - there is a footbridge marked on the map but this is no longer there - it is an easy route with a track right the way up to the summit. Bit boggy on the old railway line but easy enough to get around.

Great photo of Moss on the summit "concrete seats"!

They are a curious feature. My own conjecture is that when they built the trig, there was some cement left over, and they left the bags there, which solidified into rather useful seats.

I really liked this hill - but when I went there, I was on a bigger route with friends, and there wasn't time to fully appreciate it. I would like to revisit, via Glen Taitneach, and have another look at Loch nan Eun, which I thought was a wonderful place.
