On my own. Parked at community centrealwaysinshorts06/03/2019
From Cuil Bay. Followed track to the south west ridge and easily through a couple of fences to the top. Great views but Mrs Mindlessflogger was blown over descended which wrenched a recent skiing injury and put her out of action for a few days. The bays west of Cuil Bay are delightful.mindlessflogger23/02/2019
With Peter J, Andrew M, Chris W. Too grotty for higher hills. Easy parking at the community hall. Straight up the greasy Land Rover track. Last 100 metres or so in the teeth of a gale and cold rain.Owen B18/02/2019

Bus to Lagnaha, round back of community centre hall, and up green track (slippery in places) almost to summit, footpath to very top. Lovely sunny morning with glorious views up and down Loch Linnhe and across to Kingairloch hills. Ben Nevis very impressive under snow. Back down the same way.mainnirnamfiadh03/03/2017

70 min bag from Duror Community Centre, using rough landrover track to start. The views must be excellent but drizzle and a 1500 ft cloud base limited them today. Coffee and Cakes at the Stalker Castle centre after- always a good bet.pwheeler27/05/2015

Parked at community Hall used an overgrown path of sorts but in the end went off piste to find slim Vanessa. Hostel power off so did before breakfast and just as rain arrived.Dugswell231/08/2012

Windy, Great VP DC DS MHMartin6603/01/2012
At the end of a wild weather New Year week in Appin. Up the track from the community centre to the SE, sheltered from the gale that was blowing, with Martin66 & MarkH. It was difficult to stand up on the top due to the wind, but what a belter of a viewpoint, even if we took it in more or less flat on the ground! Everything a small hill should be: contrast with Aird's Hill a few miles down the road!NotReallyABagger03/01/2012
Sunny, dry, calm, cold, good views.iangalbraith06/11/2011
Winter ascent. Had to make careful route choice due to avalanche risk and significant loadings of snow in the area just below the summit. Cat 3 avalanche risk at this height and cat 4 on these aspects elsewhere in Glencoe today ! Knee deep snow.assynt_bob13/03/2011
With Ali, Ruth, Anthony and Scott. The others turned back at the radio mast because of the biting cold - not good for 2 year olds! Stunning day and full 360 degree panorama from the trig after decent snowfall on the major hills.paddyirish27/11/2010

Parked in post office lay by at Duror. Along road, over gate on cattle trod through trees and bracken to open moor and a broad ridge. Over wire fence and followed this and a stone wall for 3/4m over wet bracken, heather and tussock to a cross wall, up to a false summit and to top at 12.55. No cairn.arranc01/10/2005
