1 of 4: Parked at the bottom of the mast road: ice rink. Track snowy and icy. Ice falling from mast so didn't stay too long and continued over to the cairn.ChrisR12/12/2019
Via mast track, under reconstruction, very muddy. Still the easiest way and promises to be good!iangalbraith04/11/2019
Even more eroded track to summit. Great views.Play2End07/09/2019
Access track to mast badly eroded by heavy rain but still easy access if walking.dave g20/08/2019
Trig visitchalky195312/03/2019
Parked near the start of the access track to the mast on the summit of Tom Bailgeann. Went up the access track to the trig point at the summit. This is rather damp high up. Continued to the West Top going up the north ridge. Returned same way. Milder than of late and clear, so good views of Loch Ness etc.pwbellarby12/12/2018
Walked up mast access track. Very steep and rutted; fortunately gate was locked otherwise would have (unwisely) been tempted to (try to) take the car up. Trig pillar marks the HP. On to the West Top.jonglew16/09/2018
Late afternoon, second short hill run up the obvious rough mast track. Fine views up and down the Great Glen, esp Kessock Bridge.N.Morters14/09/2018
Start of a holiday, bagged after our journey from Manchester. Easy bag parked at the bottom of the access road. Not a pretty summit with its ephemera but excellent views.briandavies19/04/2018
A quick and easy tick up the track to the ugly summit. Nice views though.Gill31/03/2018
Via miry track from road to ENE.Smudge22/12/2017
Parked near start of track. Then used access track to top. Would pay good money to see white van man reach top on that track.garyhoney30/06/2017
Parked almost opposite access track and followed track to the summit.wozzat30/06/2017
Simple up and down from access track. Unusual view of Loch Ness and the Great Glen.benalder28427/05/2017
Followed the track up from 596296 for most of the way then up directly through the heather to the trig and then visited the summit. Great views of Loch Ness and beyond.Peterb28/02/2017

#571 Up the transmitter track, into the clag... Top section of track very boggy and not worth following on the down! Did I say no views?tim74718/03/2016
MC. Climbed on the landie track which starts to the east of the hill. Best not to park at the entrance to the track but 100 yards further to the north where there is a broad passing place. Steep climb up the rough track. Holding a little snow. Up and down in just under 1 hour. Strong and bitter south wind on top. Good views to InvernessMartin6618/02/2016
W Jenx. Parked at juntion of the mast track with road and strolled up and back in just over the hour. Cairn top nearby has the views.nordicstar14/01/2016

A Valentine's climb with husband and father-in-law Massey! XBecc14/02/2015
Here for the trigpoint and geocaching event. TP:UK log: Steep track to this one but worth it for the views, very windy at the top and what a racket the wind makes round the mast. After a chat with the other trig eventers it was off down the hill and home to a warm cuppa!thejackrustles02/01/2015
Track up from the road.Adrian16/06/2014
Directly up from Loch Ceo Glais, steep but quick.Chris Peart14/05/2014

Up track to mast and summitAndrewFinnimore30/09/2013
Did after coming off 'Creag nan Clag' opposite side of little loch. Straight up the handy track on NE slope, bit tricky coming down the southern most shoulder to join the road; waist high bracken, heather hidden rocks and an unforgiving gradient.Columba29/06/2013
Parked to ENE at start of rough track with gate just S of road junction. Track all way to TP next to large mast. Also subsidiary summit 80m away with cairn.Aye Jimmy24/10/2011
