An anti-clockwise route from the B847 & over Meall nan Eun before descending the South ridge with a stunning view of Schehallion all the way down. A nice wander in the snow on a lovely sunny day. Walked back up B847 to the start.

Staying in a cottage on the Dunalastair estate, one fine day forecast so took a break from writing and heaved myself up the mountain to 2980 feet and the most spectacular view on a day with plenty of sun.

A great day to be on top of the world That's the TP off to left, but what a view. For October it was quite warm, and the cool breeze was welcome!©badachro

Parked at the road junction near Dunalastair Water and headed north following the marked track and ridge to summit. There's a huge cairn with the trig nearby. The views were stupendous from the Gorms in the north to Ben Cruachan in the south. Absolutely magic day.

Walked up good path from behind Drumglas which goes almost to the summit. Returned northeast over Meall nan Eun then east down to the B847 to follow the road back.

Damaged below FB: a couple of smallish chunks missing. No cap or plug. Forgot camera, so no pics (and no view anyway). From S, Drumchastle Farm: track (soon runs out at deer fence): 5-top circuit including 2 500s, 2GTs then the trig. Descended S ridge to pick up the mapped path (which is excellent) to Druimglas. Found some dwarf birch on slopes of Meall na Eun - first Ive seen for a while.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 6th May 1957 costing 63.11s.6d. Computed as secondary triangulation station NN96/3 within the Pitlochry block during 1959. Levelled for height also in 1959. Last maintained by the OS in May 1977. SITE VISIT: Surface weathering is causing the pillar to look a bit nibbled around the edges. Spider centre open. Flush bracket faces 170 south. All sight holes open, pillar bolt visible. Another of these gems which the obsessive *must be over 3000ft* fraternity miss out on.

Misty day, compass out to find the top. Huge beehive cairn, easy to shelter from the wind.

Opposite Schiehallion and a great viewpoint, long haul from the A9, but easy drop off into Strathtummel.
