Long snowy walk to summit
by Fergalh  20 Feb 2021
We started from Kinlochleven and headed for the waterfall. Than followed a track up the valley which runs alongside the river. Eventually the track was hard to find with the snow but it was originally cut into mountain for the lairds who went hunting. When we got to the ridge (spot Height 783) we were hit with the full force of the wind than it was single file all the way to the summit marked by a small cairn. Than it was back down the ridge and down into the relative peace of the valley and back to Kinlochleven Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B313/comment/22403/

Stayed in the Blackwater Hostel excellent place with the best drying room I have seen not only heat but a water extractor so everything is (nearly !) dry the next morning Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/b313/comment/22404/

Summit barely in sight
by Fergalh  20 Feb 2021
There are a lot of Munros easily accessed from this height but only on a good day. The day we were there was severe wind and very poor visibility so we had to settle for one munro sadly Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/b313/comment/22405/
