A natural stop on the way to its bigger brother, Mullach Glas, although this top only seemed to drop about 17m to the west, according to my GPS. There is a cairn near the top, though as is often the case for some strange reason it is not at the actual highest point, which is about 30 metres away, as can be seen in shot.
