Bit more distance and ascent than advertised !!

Route: Ben Klibreck

Munros: Ben Klibreck

Date walked: 13/08/2021

Time taken: 3 hours

Distance: 16.95km

Ascent: 1149m

Used the lay by up the hill from the Wind Farm (towards Crask) sit so that's an extra 0.5km each way and some metres to the ascent which partly explains the difference but if you're using Naismith or similarly trying to plan your time, suggest using this data.
Ascent - 1149m
Indeed you start at just below 200m but there is up and down after the 544m top and also on the contour path along the shoulder. Plus some more just before the steep slog up at the end (c230m ascent for that last piece).

Distance - my Suunto actually measured this at just under 17km but it does tend to read a little bit longer than Walkhighlands. Maybe because I have it set to measure very frequently which means it picks up zigs and zags etc.

How did we manage in 4hours ? we like jogging off - which we did stop start, also gets the boggiest section at the bottom !

Wind Farm staff very cranky, embarrassing for a highland welcome, keep away. Someone on one of the FB pages reckons one of the guys there lets tyres down !
