I was up in Inverness staying with friends for a long weekend. For some reason or other, one of my friends, not a hill-walker, had always wanted to see the view from the top of Struie so, since the Saturday weather was fine, we drove up to the extended lay-by high on the Struie road and parked.

We strolled up the road a short distance before crossing a ditch to start up the path, past the stand of trees to the craggy section just below the summit. After negotiating this steeper final section, we strolled across to the summit cairn, where we enjoyed the views and a snack before heading back down to the car. A very short, but enjoyable walk.
