W Jenx, parked Shieldaig village, cut onto hill at GR 817536 and steeply up heather slopes and small crags direct up end. At higher crag cut right (S) and make tricky traverse up steep ground to outflank. Then easy to top, no obvious feature.nordicstar09/12/2012
from Shieldaig. down and up to this top then to the site of a trig column at 12.00. Only 4 iron corner posts remain. What a view! 11 out of 10. Why go overseas when Torridon is on the doorstep.arranc04/06/2009
