From Strome Forest walks car park at the edge of the wood just off the Stromeferry road. Followed the white way marked walk, then took a small track on the left of the main path, to a gate at NG 85884 34505, leading out onto the open hill. Picked up a cow track to the summit. Good views up and down Loch Carron. Carried on to the west top and returned the same way.LizH18/07/2019

From cattle grid (NG 8582 3398). Track leads off NE, followed for 200m to gain some height, then doubled back and direct for the hill top. On to the West top. With Steve Lewis.jonglew11/09/2018
From south up heathery slope. Quite windy but managed, fortunately to stay in my car while a short rain squall blew throughvegibagger20/06/2018
From E, Stromeferry turn, boggy start then decent ground. Collapsed cairn at hp. A path leads to summit approx from E, not easy to follow.RHW22/07/2017
A bit Torr Achilty in character if you know what I mean. Maybe the heather not quite as bouncy. West top has better views.Martin R16/03/2016
Looked a good candidate on a dreich day. Was surprised to see a signposted path at 848338. Not used much but did help through horrid terrain. Headed to west top before realising the east top was the summit. The west top is the finer viewpoint.. Serious tick alert on this. Be a great winter bag this.hils09/10/2015
With W Top from E.jimbloomer06/05/2015
Parked at Achmore road junction to SW. Hard going up to summit which is marked as 201m on 1:10k. A small cairn on top. A steep drop and reascent to the lower top to the west which I didn't bother with although it is a Jackson.chriswatson21/03/2011
