From FC car park at Kenmore (770460)(13:00), walked WSW for abt 1.5k. Track directly uphill from 758453 shown on 1:25k map doesn't exist. Took that line anyway up to track just inside felled area; steep but on a dry March day not too bad. Walked WSW then cut across felled area to wall on crest where it enters the wood. Followed that to summit. Back via Black Rock viewpoint then cut down through forest about 200m ENE of there to junction at 765458. Finished 15:00; 6k.dbb22/03/2020
Not sure my feet will ever be dry again. At least it was an adventure! With trimarc2Fionalevey11/08/2019
Easy walk along forest trails but very hard once we broke off to reach wall and find our way to the tiny cairn. With Fionatrimarc211/08/2019
With Brian R on the forest track from the C.P. Felled trees but easy to follow the dyke to the summit. No view.Play2End22/03/2019
From FC car park at Kenmore (NN 770460). Followed 'blue' track as several of the 'silver' track carved boar discs seemed to have fallen prey to small game hunters. On arrival at ridge crest, tracks made by the felling and extraction machine made for good progress W, until the wall had to be followed - makes a good 'handrail' straight to the summit. Tried to descend immediately S, but got very steep, so came back to wall.Isbjorn13/02/2019
Ran to viewpoint, then walked along east ridge â rough going through felled woods. Ran/walked down. Some rain, low cloud. Rounsfell07/11/2018
Approach from the E - follow the wall (actually approached wall via a felled area).Adjacent christmas trees could do with a little pruning-secateurs should suffice. Went on to visit Trig (again following the wall). Trig in a clearing, with good views N & NW. A much better hill adventure than I anticipated. The viewpoint is worth visiting. (10km, 400m).ger06/09/2018
Forestry CP. Up past viewpoint to just past highest point of track to edge of felled area.Climbed to summit and recognised the top from earlier o-events. Lots of felling taking place.Coinneach22/08/2018

Usual zigzaggy route up from carpark. Tempted to take a short cut through the trees on the descent but played safe. Surprisingly no obvious direct paths.AndrewFinnimore04/03/2017

From Taymouth carpark. up road to viewpoint and then onto ridge which is not easy as it is full of windblown timber, and forestry track very rough. Fought my way all along ridge to trig. Not a pleasant summit. Then Dun CollichThearlaichdubh20/04/2014
Solo. From Tay Forest car park near Mains of Taymouth. Forest tracks and then east ridge. Fortunately forest much more open than lower down. Small cairn on a broken down bit of wall at summit. Checked a few nearby bumps but none higher.pwbellarby10/05/2013
Another fine December day. Followed the route from Taymouth forest car park described below, with the exception of short cuts through the forestry to shorten the distance - which I recommend with the usual disclaimers.Topographer5711/12/2012

Came up from SE through trees from forest track, then followed wall West to trig, chased by clouds of flies the whole way.agentmancuso30/07/2011
Hottest day of 2011 surely - from the Mains of Taymouth car park, zig-zagging up hill and past Black Rock viewpoint, from NN747452 went straight up through sparse, tall trees to wall and right short distance to summit. Ran back down to the loch via West Drummond.nordicstar24/07/2011
