Parked at the lower car park and set off at 11:30. It's a lovely walk through the woods along side burn which on occasions is quite steep sided. Lots of magical potential as E would say. No-one else was on the path at all. I thought Ben Vrackie would be busy as well. Little did know.
40 mins in I came across two benches. One had two memorial plaques on it.
After about an hour, I started on the long steep path to the summit. This is a fantastic path. At this point the hill started getting a lot busier.
After two hours, I made it to the top. Found a nice lunch spot looking over to Carn Liath and Ben a Glho ('scuse spelling).
After lunch had a look at the other less busy top and took a photo looking back at the main top.
Coming back down was fine apart from my jelly legs on the steep steps. Had one last look back.
Back at the car in 4 hrs in 15 mins. Lovely walk back through the woods.
