Walk: Carn an t-Suidhe - a hill made for tourists

[Carn an t-Suidhe]

The main road along the east side of Loch Ness passes right by the base of Carn an t-Suidhe. This hillock isn't notable for its height, dramatic terrain or scenery on the way to the summit. But it's a popular stop-off so there's a good path, views from the top are decent and it's less than a mile's round trip. Therefore, if you're passing by in good weather then a quick trip up's pretty much obligatory.

[Decent views from the top towards Loch Knockie (centre), Loch Ness mostly hidden beyond]
