Sadly, the most interesting part of this hill was travelling there along minor roads to Daless, approaching from the north, encountering tractors, remote moors and a red squirrel, and strange road signs (it should really say Caution: Potholes, good suspension needed), and afterwards driving out along the Findhorn.The view up the Findhorn just after Daless was attractive. We set off in a clockwise circuit, following a good track and then an atv track to a little bump on the plateau not shown on the map. Then we headed for the summit, but got entangled in partially frozen peat hags, so that you couldn't quite tell whether the boot would sink in or slide off the steep sides. I was amazed to find a tree growing deep inside one of the more navigable hags, quite close to the summit. At the summit, trig number 1, we had a brief stop to look at the very very distant snowcapped hills showing extensively to the north, but the wind was too cold to stop for long, or for lunch. We'd really had enough of peat hags but some impressive ones loomed between us and the descent. We circumnavigated these partiallly successfully by keeping high, but thereby extending the distance on tiresome ground to get to trig number 2. We were delighted to find nice dry ground with short heather as we angled off the hill towards Daless, intercepting the track for the final descent to the burn and over back to Daless. A very late lunch was enjoyed in the car.

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.
