With J during a day off the Corbetts in a week of glorious weather in Sutherland. That didn't preclude a couple of Marilyns of course! After Beinn Domhnaill in the morning & a wander round Dornoch, started from the waterworks where there is ample space to park without obstructing the gate. Followed the track round to the L of the buildings & struck off up the hillside. The best line probably follows the line of shooting butts. Summit is not quite as good a viewpoint as Beinn Domhnaill but good all the same. Took a high route back to the track which made for a quick descent.NotReallyABagger23/05/2018
Parked by the waterworks track and followed until it was time to plunge into the tussocks and heather. Visited both summit candidates, and as Gill said in her log, the views are amazing.Sprog14/02/2018
Third of the day. The track from the waterworks lulls you into a sense of false security, then you're off up the tussocks and heather, but with reasonable deer tracks and bits of ATV track to follow. The top of the hill is nice, and the views are pretty darn good.Gill24/12/2017
From SW after Hump - Cnoc Dubh Mor, then descent to Water Works where my driver awaited.NormanW22/05/2017
The track to the water treatment works continues for a km to E. Then straight up hill to both summits. On to Meall na Diollaid.Thearlaichdubh16/05/2017

From the Water Works clockwise with 1176Jim.Fothergill18/04/2016
From the water board structures to west. Avoiding worse ground by traversing, animal tracks to gain top. Further summit although shown as less on OS the middle top looks very much higher. Loggednordicstar24/03/2016
A bit of a bog trot.jenx24/03/2016
From the west. Road closure meant I had to cycle the last mile up the road to the gold plated waterworks before heading up the hill into an easterly gale. Dry with hazy sunshine.Topographer5723/08/2015
from the water treatment plant.robertphillips12/06/2015
Parked at the water treatment works. A walk of just over 1 hour return on surprisingly easy terrain. Solo.bolton17/02/2015
Parked by entrance to Water Treatment Works NH64178 94783 Through the first gate & then took the 4x4 track for about 200m before heading up the NW ridge to the summit. Very wet underfoot. (S)gerrybowes24/09/2014
Parked at the entrance to the water treatment plant at NH 642 948, then up the NW ridge to the top.martin_hall11/07/2014

Climbed up NW ridge - some parking at start of track.Chris Peart10/11/2010
Parked at side of road and initially followed the Allt na h-Atha burn on a good path heading for Loch a'Ghobhair. Summit, above the loch, is non-descript.jonglew19/05/2010
Parked at Bonar Bridge water works. Old track into the interior, turned right over spongy uneven moor making for horizon. Large area of burnt moor made going much easier. To top at 13.45.arranc09/06/2007
Went up from waterworks over original Marilyn summit. Also went further east (and from photos I confirm that I have been up Alan Dawson's revised Marilyn summit of 2016 too).assynt_bob20/05/2007
