A minging Marilyn. Along the forest track, then through tussocks up the first fire break, emerging from the forestry into pillowy mounds of moss under deep heather. The nasty vegetables don't ease off until very close to the summit plateau. Wandered round all the bumps to make sure so that I never have to go back. The only saving grace for this shite fest of a hill is the superb view of the Cuillins. P.S. Don't even think of driving up the track; the gate was open when we set off, but padlocked when we got back, so very relieved to have parked by the gate like well-behaved baggers.Gill03/10/2019

Gate closed and cones across at 197m high point on the road which is to the north of the summit. Parked there as no forestry work on a sunday. Just over 90 minute solo return in clear conditions. From the forest road ascended the ride at 416267. Solo.bolton30/09/2018

From forest track near pt.197. There is a choice of fire breaks that lead to upper slopes. Between the hail and snow blizzards there was sunshine and views of snow covered Cuillins.Martin R07/03/2012
