Time taken: 4.5 hours

Distance: 12km

Ascent: 475m

Sub 2k Marilyns: Carn na Dubh Choille.
Date: 15/05/2021.
Distance: 12km.
Ascent: 475m.
Time: 4 hours, 30 minutes.
Weather: Warm and sunny with a light shower or two.

Not a promising weekend of weather, so we didn't make any big plans. This hill above Garve, along with a couple of other possibilities in the area, had been on the to-do list for this winter/spring, so we parked up at the Silverbridge carpark. At this point, the sun was out and it was the warmest I'd felt on a hill this year.

Little Wyvis

After walking a short distance back down the road verge (spotting a layby on the other side that could have shortened the approach slightly...), we picked up a forestry track, and then the old drove road to Aultguish. This is a reasonable track for a bit, before deteriorating into rutted bog. The sun went in here and we felt a few splashes of rain - suddenly it was a lot colder!

This hadn't been a great week for Jackie fitness-wise, and by the time we reached Lochan nam Breac, we realised that we had probably set our ambitions a bit high. After climbing a short distance further on the drove road, we left it to make our way through rougher ground. I didn't think it was too bad but Jackie was struggling, so we had a break.

We eventually made the summit after the best part of 3 hours of walking - the overall distance of this route makes it more than just a quick Marilyn. Fortunately the rain had stopped on the summit and the views of Loch Glascarnoch and An Teallach to the west were good.

I decided to keep on with the circuit I had done last time on this hill, dropping down to the Black Water and a forestry track to the east. The going was a little rough but there were faint quad-bike tracks to follow intermittently, and best of all, we were going downhill.

I couldn't remember exactly how I had got through the conifers last time, so we went down to a prominent corner and scouted out a route. It was easy enough, although there were sections where a large excavator had driven through and mangled the ground. Eventually we were on a more formal quad-bike route through the brashings that dumped us on our track.

Now it was a straightforward walk back to the point where we joined out outward route. I sped back to the carpark to save Jackie having to walk along the last section of road verge.
