After An Staonach in the morning drove to Loch Dughaill and parked at layby 828511. Steeply up on rough ground, meeting the deer fence at 300m which helped on further steep terrain. Took me longer to summit than anticipated. Down to col and followed deer fence down before taking a direct line back to car. My final Region 13 Marilyn.NormanW28/10/2019
From Loch Dughaill, very steep pull up to ridge roughly following deer fence. Then easier slopes to summit. Cloud low 400m, dry save last 20mins to car typical.N.Morters10/08/2019

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. Over top to gain main summit with cairn on outcrop.nordicstar09/12/2012
Form Meall Dubh end, up the long ridge. Hot, sunny and calm.iangalbraith14/04/2010
Parked at entrance to marine farm. Past a fishing hut for 3/4 m to Loch Damh. On a deteriorating track to a small shack by the shore. Up into very rough tussock moor and a trek into a wide bealach under the ridge. More of the same and to ridge at 11.00. No sign of path, but pleasant going, after all the rough stuff, amid sandstone boulders and to top at 11.25. Magnificent view.arranc04/06/2009
