Cnoc a'Bhothain (not a Marilyn but I don't think it cares) is a nice wee walk from the road with some good perspectives on this not-exactly-overpopulated landscape.

We started with the track that winds its way over the first (and steeper) half of the route.

Further up, looking back

I was surprised how much snow was still on Ben Loyal.

At the top of the hill is a vaguely convex area with the mapped peak (according to my satnav) somewhere in a dip between several rocky lumps. We duly stood on each of the highest-looking rocks and took pictures from what I'm pretty sure was the highest.

Excuse the dusty lens... :oops:
A bit of Borgie Forest in the northwest (zoomed)
N across Loch Stephan and others
East - Griams just about making in an appearance
