Came up from Aultsigh with Nozzer on a good track. Data gathering mast still there but no sign of turbines -yet. Fantastic summit with lots of snow.

Trig in V good order. Spider centre retains OS cap with raised lettering. Previously visited this Graham 07/01/99 no trig details noted. Wind speed test-mast on SW slopes and if today was typical look out for a wind factory sometime soon. Lost my Ortleib map-case containing OS Landrangers 26 & 34 on the SE slopes towards Meall Fuar-mhonaidh.

vgc, metal cap, wide raised letters. Decent summit, fine views on a crisp December day (-7C when I got back to the car). 18 mile 3 trig circuit with Meall A Chrathaich, S7731, Graham Tops etc from Shenval. Descend NW to cross river (shallow ford) then good tracks back to Shenval. 10 years minus 3 days since my first visit (Inverness at Xmas often a good bet).
