There are many variants but the route is well signposted.
On the way up, I met a man coming down. He kindly took my photograph:
I could look back at my place of work:
Though not the summit, the main objective was the monument of George Leveson-Gower, Marquess of Stafford and first Duke of Sutherland who became notorious through the part he played in the Highland clearances.
Leaving the monument behind....
I headed for this small shelter for lunch.
The depression made by the track was full of deep snow and it was easier to walk by the side of the track. All the time, the views across Sutherland were crystal clear.
