From track NJ 277 374. Forestry work currently ongoing and the middle track of three littered with tree trunks and branches - passable with care. On return dropped down to lower (more northerly) track which was free of debris

Bagged as part of a 10 mile walk taking in Meikle Conival and Ben Rinnes trig, high cloud most of the day with cloud touching the summits every now and then.

Sunny walk after parking beside road at NJ 31006 38787 then using track that stays to the west of the pylons until the coll. Beaten to the top again by Liz and Iain.

Found this one whilst geocaching. Good views from the trig but didn't hang about as the rain was starting to come in!

Had a wee stop whilst running Dufftown to Ben Rinnes. Bracket, Spider and plug in good order. Definite crack in the pillar. If you cross the top of top of the hill, you can see why the trig was positioned where it was instead of the true top.

Log #155. Nothing like a quick trig to celebrate being home. Good walk from the Edinkillie road, Ben Rinnes imposing to the south, good views over the Moray Firth, and east into Dufftown. [ExP-133/MiP-3/Rev-2/BM-10/IS-6/Other-1]

Substantial crack. Bad craic.
Indented cap intact. Peeking over Meikle Conval and Ben Rinnes.

Parked at golf course but wasn't sure if path started here so walked short distance down the busy road and up farm track following the pylons to bealach, missed 2 lambs being born by minutes. At the bealach headed up the hill up the more direct path, although the zig zag path is still there if you require an easier route. Trig found no bother and back down the same way. Crack is still there 3/4 of the way round. Good views of whisky central.

Lovely sunny day with a cold wind. Ascended from Dufftown Distillery to the bealach between the two Convals. Trig slightly beyond the summit.

Having just done Ben Rinnes, I walked up from the same minor road. Starting along a forest track and then a tiring 'up' ascent over the, thankfully small, billberry plants. Fantastic views from the top. Me. 547m (hill summit at 552m)

Camers balancing in the wind is hard! As always a picture of me at the trig. The views were amazing so it is a shame I don't show them!©dpeberdy

Deep closed horizontal crack halfway up. Metal cap, deep letters. Fine hill; trig located 100m or so N of the very flat summit, beside path.

Revisited to photograph. Pillar not at the top of this Marilyn but it does have a sight line to Ben Rinnes. Substantial crack around the pillar.

Not being a man for the easy option I approached this from Meikle Conval, round trip of 4.6 miles. Steep climb. quite tiring on a hot summers day. Good views of Dufftown, Spey valley and Ben Rinnes next door.

Trig and FB Good views all round, Trig with cap intact in good condition.
Cairn on Meikle Conval Meikle Conval is the hill adjoining Little Conval. A good walk up to the top, over and down the other side and up steeply again to Little Conval.
