Surprisingly easy through open trees from main pathColin Crawford27/03/2017
Steep but easy. Parked at start of Glen Ample but took forest track west of burn, not the Glen Ample path, then up easy but steep slopes through open trees to a deer path alongside fence. Climbed fence at about 400m then easy grassy slopes to the summit, took under an hour. Good walk, no hags or tussocks.alda07/11/2016
