As Hils, although the new track is being upgraded again, and the workmen stopped digging for us as we passed. Lots of smiles, not much English! Glorious but windy day, fabulous old track between the lochans.iangalbraith17/07/2020
With my wife using the newish track described by hils. Good views across to Ben Stack from the top.NormanW06/07/2020
With K. Route as Hils below, new track from near Achfary. First isolation walk of Coronavirus times. Edited: at the time of this walk, there was no advice not to go hillwalking.Ashley21/03/2020
From Ben Stack. SE to point 538, then an easier than expected descent initially south, then west along the stream. Then pathless and quite steep SW and then flatter and easier south to the summit. Excellent views despite the flat topped summit. Then SE along the delightful track between lochans to the track down to Lochmore Lodge. Then back along the road to Achfary.Owen B26/04/2019
Ditto hils. A fine viewpoint especially for the higher hills on the other side of the A838.Topographer5727/07/2018
used a newish hydro cable track that starts from 294392 rises to a beallach at 409m, cairn marks the start of a delighful old hill track to summit.hils21/05/2018
A road crosses from Loch Glendhu to Loch More, then a very good path leads almost to the very top. A dreary day when I was there but I still met three people by the top.Alan Moore15/05/2018
forest track just south of Achfary which joins old stalkers' path right to summit.davidsbatty09/05/2018
1 of 4: from timber track gate south of Achfary.ChrisR19/04/2018
A lovely walk in good snow all the way. The bulldozed forest road is not so bad when snow covered, and the hill track to the summit makes for easy going. Superb views of favourite mountains throughout, and interesting twists and turns of the hill track reveal lovely icy lochans.Gill29/12/2017
Took the bulldozed track up from just south of Achfary as far as the ruin then joined the footpath to the summit. Incredible views all over particularly Ben Stack and Arkle. As you top out the sea comes into view too, a terrific hill.Peterb09/08/2017
Using the new directbtrack past the lodge. The old stalkers path gone dug up and roaded with electricity service cabling. Old path from the col a delight still and a fine summit area with views.nordicstar21/07/2016
Nice high level path once off the bulldozed track.jenx21/07/2016
Took forest track to bypass Lochmore Lodge - no locked gates - reached old path at top of forest to find it had been improved. The path from bealach to summit was a delight - wonderful views.Chris Peart18/06/2016
From Achfary with Ben Stack and Ben ScreavieJim.Fothergill20/05/2016
Parked at 295392 and followed new bulldozed track through felled plantation to meet old path from Lochmore Lodge at a locked gate (high deer fence to climb) Bulldozed track continued to beyond shieling, from which a lovely path led easily to the top. Good views all round. Returned via old track to Lochmore lodge - much nicer with some old pines and a few rhodedendrons.Clive G15/05/2015
Though houses 200m south east of Lochmore Lodge,and up path to new path following underground cable to (and beyond) Bealach nam Fiann. Then delightful old hill path to the topPeteN05/04/2015
Bulldozed track/path from Lochmore LodgeAndrewFinnimore27/08/2014
Up Strath Stack from Achfary, and at the end of the woodland straight up to the top. Returned SE along the stalkers path to the shieling, and back down a muddy track being constructed for the new hydro scheme - follows the line of the stalkers path before veering downhill off to the left to join the road between Lochmore Lodge and Achfary.martin_hall18/10/2012
Parked beyond Lochmore Lodge. On road through yards and on bridal track on gentle gradient for 2 miles in a forest to a wide open area with stones scattered all over the ground. Cloud at 1,800'. A narrower superb path led from junction over lochan studied rugged landscape for 1 1/2 miles to its end on the summit plateau. 2 great northern divers. To top at 11.35. No view - mist. Anywhere within the 510m contour could be the highest point - like a car park with gravel and odd rocks scattered around. GPS indicated a loose pile of large stones as the cairn.arranc03/08/2008
From Glendhu bothy by good paths, even in snow.Eddie25/01/2007
