Damn - lost my camera just after climbing this. [Found it - Hooray] On way up to my brother's for the weekend, pulled off at the roundabout before Tain and drove the 6 miles through the village of Nigg to the starting point. Several SUVs parked in the field (out shooting). The waymarked path is in need of a good cutting back - gorse and other vegetation needing forced through. Onto the fields - soem locked gates to climb before the summit mound is spotted. Good views over the Dornoch Firth.
Back the same way - took about 40 minutes.

Stopped in at the Old Nigg Church to try and see the Nigg Stone (locked after 31 Oct) and that's where I must have lost my camera
