A possibility tomorrow. Been up via the south from Rest and Be Thankful. Thinking of an ascent from Butterbridge.
What's the north shoulder like? Steep? Too risky with a dog in tow? Forecast is for about 5 degrees C tomorrow. What kind of surface could I expect on the snow? Some give to rock hard? If good footing rather than scrapping along glass hard snow in crampons, would seem viable.
I've been down that way: nothing worse than some moderately steep grass. There's a path beside the burn - it's probably worth staying on this a bit beyond the top of the forestry to avoid some rocky outcrops low down. You can return via the Bealach a' Mhargaidh to make a wee circuit.
Can't imagine the snow has consolidated very much - thin soft snow on top of wet grass will likely be the worst hazard.
