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.
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...

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
