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.

Thomas met up with his mates to climb Beinn Bhraggie. Having his Dad and little brother along was totally uncool, so after dropping off Thomas in Embo, Peter and I headed for Golspie and climbed Beinn Bhraggie. We passed Thomas and his pals about two-thirds of the way down. This was Peter's first proper hill walk. Hopefully, he will be climbing Munros next year.
