Up good track from Auchtertyre farm. Fleeting grand views across to Ben Lui & back to Ben More on the ascent before being engulfed in clag on the the summit. Continued Northeast to Cam Chreag & then back down the glen to the parking area at Auchtertyre farm.

First Vanessa I've seen this side of the Great Glen. Was painted white once. Cap gone. Chipped on one side (SW?), about half-way up. The notorious ankle-high electric fence is now in ruins, but it's still a hazard for the unwary. The only trig visited on a 53-hour 10 Marilyn backpacking trip from Tyndrum to Bridge of Orchy. It rained continuously for 43 of those hours...

Notoriously dull corbett. Had an electric fence back then as well. A shocking tripping hazzard, as it was almost at ground level.
