Parked in Alyth and went up the Cateran trail to the Hill of Loyal first, then down to the col and a bit of time to find the best way through the gorse as we missed the obvious way up we'd seen during the walk down to the col. Finally on good paths to the trig point, and on past the little lochan to the summit. Descended on another part of the Cateran Trail. Pleasant walk.LizH30/11/2019
parked near CG at balwhyme entrance, along track to near houses, through gate to the top.robertphillips07/09/2019
From end of track to Balwyme, via Cateran way and then tracks to summit. Nice, open area, good view with brother Pete. We took a wrong turning on the return but followed tracks to a gate a few yards before Balwyme and walked down the track back to the road. Pleasant finish to a holiday, then drove back to Warwick in the Midlands.pwheeler28/03/2019
