My Corbett #92, Rosie's 91st. Anticlockwise circuit of the tracks, plenty of snow on the tracks which made ascent awkward but descent a joy. We'd driven 60miles east today to avoid the low cloud and rain in the west, a ploy that worked perfectly until we were within 5 minutes of the TP. Watching a TP vanishing into clag faster than you can get to it is pretty irritating! For the next half hour or so we spent on the summit the cloud came and went, but our summit photos weren't as good as they might have been had we got here 30 minutes earlier...

Fair bit of wind and rain blowing up here so not an afternoon to be hanging around.

Followed track from centre of Kingussie all the way to summit via Beinn Bhreac. Descended Southeast to eventually meet up with outward route. Another beautiful blue sky day but a cheeky bitter wind on the summit reminding us that it's still winter on the hills.

Along with Nozzer, ascended from Kingussie. Gloriously sharp winters day but mist came down on the top. Lots of white hares, grouse and ptarmigan.

No cap or plug, pillar damaged R of FB, old repair. From SE, Balavil, via Creag Bhalg, then half a dozen summits to east, back along old road from Dunachton Lodge, 20 miles on a sunny spring day.

Visited whist doing walk 25 from the Jarrold series Cairngorms walks. A beautiful day ended up in very poor visibility and high winds. A bit of snow on the ground made it a little more interesting. Despite poor conditions, a really good walk. Me. 878m

I am suprised the camera didn't blow away! First time I have used waterproof trousers in years!©dpeberdy

Neds probably commited their felony using stones from the windshelter which surrounds three sides of pillar. Spider open. FB faces 162(SSE). Two sighting holes open, RHS & front. 360 panorama. Primary station PP331 on OSGB network, built 3rd July 1936, costing 18.7s.0d. During the Retriangulation of GB, the following primary stations were observed from here: PP356 Beinn Bhreac Mhor, PP342 Corryhabbie, PP332 Carn Gower, and PP335 Ben Alder. Estate track all the way to the summit. Visited and photographed 12/07/2005, GRP.

Another one from my dim and distant past that I am only logging in 2004. My notes tell me the time to the summit but not the condition of the pillar. I saw long-tailed tits. I don't appear to have taken any photos of that day.
