A mere 19 years after my previous visit I finally managed to return, not by the Ptarmigan as planned but as part of my walk along the Watershed of Scotland. Again I had the hill to myself but this time this was due to the poor weather rather than the hour ( I was much later than my first, eartly morning visit). I didn't hang around at the trig as it was wet, windy and with no views. I noted the damage to the base of the pillar .I also cleared the top of the Trig which had a very sorry, dead bunch of flowers on it weighed down with a load of stones. I then descended a slippy Ptarmigan Ridge until the Watershed continued North and I parted company with the normal route down which turned west towards Loch Lomond.

Log #201, Munro #3. Left Glasgow at 5:30am in order to avoid the crowds and have the summit to myself. Didn't take enough change with me, so had to use my card to pay the 3(!) parking. Somehow I missed the start of the tourist path (didn't realise it started on the other side of the toilets/tourist info building), and ended up using the forestry track to the south, rejoining the main path a little further up the hill. Pretty straightforward trek up the hill, following the tourist path through the grazing cows and to the halfway well. Rested a little bit, and watched the cloud slowly roll upwards, across Sron Aonaich. There were no views from this point on, as I was stuck in the cloud all the way to Sithean. Ascending the steps onto the summit ridge wasn't made any more difficult by the poor visibility though, and I was up towards the top. I ascended the first summit, mainly just to enjoy a little scramble amongst the boulders. A slight descent, then it was onto the true summit at 974m. I had the summit to myself for about 2 minutes, before hearing a couple ascending from the Ptarmigan. I chatted awhile, then I sat on the edge over Leac na Cailliche and just enjoyed the solitude (and the ravens). The couple (a Finn and an Englishwoman) left, so I grabbed a few photos of the trig and surrounding summit, before starting the descent. The pillar is showing some significant wear, with a huge chunk out of the front-left corner and the end of one of the spider legs exposed. I had planned to descend via the Ptarmigan, but the couple had struggled a bit apparently, and I wasn't keen on a scrambly descent in such poor visibility. Back down the tourist path then, and I met a fair few folk on the way - some in shorts and t-shirts. Despite multiple layers, I was feeling the chill a bit, so they must have been making a furious pace in order to keep warm. The descent was quick and fairly uneventful until I reached the halfway well and looked down towards Rowardennan... there must have been 50 people at least on their way up the hill. It was quite slow going from this point, as I was constantly having to stop and left people past, including a cyclist who looked to have biked across Moin Eich. Had an interesting stand-off with a cow who had decided to park herself on the path. I stepped off to the side and motioned for the cow to pass, receiving nothing but a hearty moo for my efforts, leaving a group of ascending girls in hysterics. "And who says manners are dead?" asked one, between giggles. Not much more to mention - 13km round trip, in almost exactly 5 hours, including my time on the summit. Very enjoyable morning, but I'd love my next Munro to have some views! [ExP-161/MiP-6/Rev-2/BM-12/IS-17/Other-3]

WHW#6: Our first Munro - modest by Scottish standards, but for us from flat Hampshire we are quite pleased! Up Ptarmigan (great and very quiet), down Tourist Track (much in common with the M25). Summit above clouds so in sunshine, but no views. Damage round base is now significant, and the end of one spider arm is exposed. E and W s/holes, and centre, open - sadly this trig is suffering.

Stupendous views in all directions for about 70 miles. Ascended via the Ptarmigan route and down the tourist route. Much better approach, in my opinion!

Pillar in reasonable condition but showing signs of wear and tear with a chunk missing from the front left near the base. The spider centre is open and the vertical tube has been filled with debris. Flush bracket faces 172, south, and has damaged levelling staff fixings. LHS and RHS sighting holes open, others plugged. Built on 26th August 1936 as Primary station PP336 on the OSGB primary network. During the Retriangulation of Great Britain 1936-62, seven other primary stations were observed from here, these are Ben Nevis, Ben Lawers, Ben Cleugh, Earls Seat, Hill of Stake, Beinn Bheula and Ben Cruachan. Fantastic 360 panorama to many other easily identified summits. Photographed 29/04/2006, GRP.

My third Munro, enjoyable climb but ghastly rainy day (and no views).

Usual route of ascent for the Munro from Rowardennan. Great to be out after the F&M hysteria eased off.

My first ever hill - spent time looking at the trig pillar wondering what the hell it was! Great views of Loch Lomond and a sea of mountains I didnt know the names of yet! Sunny clear day.

Early morning visit taking advantage of good weather when I lived fairly close by. I didn't start to meet anyone until halfway back down. It was the first Munro that I climbed on my own and I have always intended to return to climb it by the ptarmigan ridge but 18 years on and I still haven't!

Given a fairly low mark as cloud level was almost at Loch Lomond level. Another Ben Anywhere bag.

Stirlingshire County Top. A group of us made the ascent to accompany a colleague completing the munros. The champagne was good.
