Very peaceful day out. Saw 3 shepherds and their 9 dogs near the farm but no-one else all day.

vgc, no cap or plug. Fester - it's got its paint job, about a year ago I'm told. They should have used primer though - flakes of paint were blowing off in the wind! Visited the two Beinn a Ghlo trigs first; after this a handful of assorted Tops on SE side of Glen Girnaig. Party of 4 Whooper swans on Loch Valigan.

Corbett no.23. A lengthy friday afternoon jaunt from Loch Moraig. A good part was along a track but then slow going over grass and heather until the summit. The most striking view was directly north, to the right of Beinn a` Ghlo, where the Cairngorms either side of the Lairig Ghru stood out.

I think it was a lovely day. I have no notes or photographs from my walk, just the date.

Excellent viewpoint with a remote feel to it. To the FDHC who have adopted this needs another coat of paint..! :o)

Mostly buried in snow. Made a mistake of not taking the skis, although the descent in a whiteout would have been awkward. Expect tussles with bogs.

Its there somewhere Beinn Bhuirich, Atholl.©fasgadh
