With my friend Russell. Gale force winds, sleet, then sun and rain. Typical Scottish weather in May.
On a few days' holiday while in Scotland for work. Decided at the last minute to head up this interesting mountain. Sure it's round, sure it's low, but I bet in winter it's still a bugger of a hike. I had the top to myself on a mildly-overcast day, descended the waterfall trail. This definitely looks like the best mountain in the neighborhood. Deer and grouse everywhere, and quite noisy. A good first Scotland/UK summit, I'm not disappointed.
Date approximate - although year is correct and I recall it was close to easter. Made ascent on ski's/skins then downhilled it to the bottom.
A beautiful scramble to the top. At times the weather is fierce, but it's very photogenic with the sun out. I try to hit this mountain every time I'm in Aberdeen for work.
wonderful mountain, a little dull when you see the Cairngorms glinting in the distance.
Horrible weather - couldn't see a thing, but fun nonetheless.
Did this summit on a very good Saturday via Broad Cairn, Cairn Bannoch, Carn an t'sagairt Mor and Carn a' Choire Bhaidheach.
The weather was great all day but off course just as we reached Cac Carn Beag the cloud level dropped and killed the views.
Got down at 21:40hours in the dark but still a great day.
Worth doing again and again...
A fantastic (easy!) walk via Carn an-T-sagairt Mor and Carn a’Coire Boidheach with an exciting view far over the Deeside and to the Grampians. Absolutely recommendable!!
Usually scramble up directly NE from the crags, tourist route down. This approach requires about 2 km of bushwacking, but the scrambling is nice.
Spent a week camping near Alt na Giubshiach with a friend and managed to climb Centrall Butress and the left hand branch of Black Spout. Very nice introduction to Scottish winter climbing!
Pleasant walk with my cousin from Manchester. Needed the compass on the way down.
I climbed this with my 70 year old Grandad (who has done all the Munro's, probably almost twice) via the tourist route. It was nice.
A promising day that unfortunately left us in the clag for the summits of Lochnagar & Carn a' Coire Boidheach. Thankfully the remainding three summits were clear. A grand day out.
It's much harder in the wet...
Easy scramble, very enjoyable.
