Parked just off A95 N of Dallachapple. Followed tracks up hill then back to car. Started raining at top.187lenny09/06/2019
V easy from main road to NW of woodland. Tack leads after short distance up to pair of gates w good parking. Followed west side of trees to good track cutting back North. From junction with the track that circumvents hill cut up pretty much direct to top. Gorgeous sunset going on. Modest cairn on top, no way overly large MR!!nordicstar25/01/2018
Same route as Richard McLellan. Absurdly large cairn.Martin R13/05/2017
From forest road which starts ~500m SW of Wester Rynaballoch almost a direct line to summit via track, firebreak and then through open forest to open summit area with large partially collapsed cairn at its SW corner (not high point). A fine sunset.RichardM27/06/2016
Parked in layby on A95 and took track east alongsouthern boundary of wood. After 1km approx used forest tracks to within 400m of top. Easy hack to summit cairn.garyhoney22/06/2016
Ziggy track from north to near summit then rough track with lots of fallen trees to open summit area with views. Some lovely mixed woodland and old trees, looked great covered in all the fresh snow. Good view of a capercaillie flying past on the way up.alda23/02/2016
Walk east along southern edge of wood then north up through easy open Caledonian pine forest and clear on top with big slightly broken down cairn and nice stone seat.vegibagger24/10/2015
From NJ110296. Left forest road SE of summit and followed muddy vehicle track to summit clearing. Trees well spaced above forest road.mae21/04/2015
Up from A95 lay-by on forest side via track at NJ 096318. On-line 50,000 map shows extra loop on NE side not on 1996 that needs to be ignored. With RH. Left track N of summit and broke through dense trees and crap to clearing. Return W to track. High point to N of big cairn.Eddie05/03/2015
Followed Speyside Way trail into the forest from the north and then ascended forest tracks. On the top there were many brashings and other debris, but found these could be avoided by approaching the summit from the south. Previous ascent in April 2012.JohnW22/04/2013
