Cycle in from Kenknock Glen Lochay to Allt Challuim then an easy ascent from there after finding my way around the deer fence. Flighty snow from about 800m to the summit. Steep slippy on the final bit of the ascent but by far a very enjoyable hill day this mountain surprised me by being so stunning & not a difficult day outLizzieG17/04/2017

Jim and I on an overcast and what was to be a freezing cold day. Went via land rover track that runs from Auchtertyre, over to the belach and up the NW ridge. Easy scrambling and then over the tops and down the normal ascent route, no views :( 6hr15.bowzi06/03/2011
