I'd recommend it - a much more satisfying approach than over the top from Glen Shee. Possible to complete a circuit over Carn Bannoch and Broad Cairn for a longer day out (or possible benightment if that's your thing :wink: )

I really enjoyed this area when at Corrie Fee, the route you followed looks equally as nice and you got plenty of great views. Love the shot from the summit of Tolmount.
