Ascent Trip Report

Clockwise circuit from Green Well of Scotland via west flanks (following wall) to summit and then Black Shoulder, Dunool and Willieanna. Views to Northern Pennines, Lake District, Ailsa Crag, Arran and Southern Highlands. You are supposed to be able to see the Isle of Man, Ben Nevis and the North Sea from the summit but, although it was sunny, there was too much atmospheric haze to see them on this occasion.
