Very short video of the hike-it was rather blowy!
Started at carpark across from the Ski centre (200 feet of a start!) just after 10am and back for 3pm.

Straight up to Glas Maol (1068m) and then down to meet the dry stane dyke that takes you all the way to the much better summit of Creag Leacach (978m). Drop back down to the cairn and skirt along the well defined patch that bypasases the need to summit Glas Maol again.
The Cairnwell Pass a full 1000 feet between snowgates:

Spotted some ptarmigan in their winter plumage:
