From B9176 to Strathrory and beyond, cutting out loop of forest track by using firebreak from near old quarry site, rejoining forest track, then after track turns east for a few hundred meters, taking wider firebreak northish to fence. Walked along fence for 200m or so, then 150m into slightly higher part of forest firebreak. Returned by same route. As others have said, rather dull, but still took 2.5 hours. Recommend viewing Google Earth pictures beforehand to ease selection of firebreaks.willyross17/09/2019
Dull summit.BigJ14/09/2019
4 of 6: From Strath Rory CP at 668778. Left off the track up a wide break at 689784. Right at top for 2 mins then HP 2 mins down a minor break.ChrisR13/09/2019
From B9174 cycle trail car park. via normale forest track/fire break then sqwetch along fence. Over summit in firebreak all the way to navigation pole, quick drop back to track. Took shortcut doepwn obvious firebreak right down to quarry saves 20mins. Not a good hill limited views until fence at top, still not great, won’t be back. 4/4 for the day.N.Morters04/05/2018
From NH 6677 7785. Excellent forest roads to NH 6849 7856 then good snow covered fire breaks. Returned via the Scotsburn Navigation Pole (trig stn). Also took fire break short cut on descent starting at NH 6816 7786. With Carole Engel for the outward leg.jonglew03/04/2018
Parked at 668779. Followed the forest tracks to Strathrory and then uphill through the forest. Just before the track drops down a ride on the left brings you to an open space alongside a deer fence. A right turn on another ride will bring you to the summit. 2.5 hours solo return.bolton20/02/2018
Walked up from CP. Not sure why didn't cycle. Not an exciting summit.12.4K 2.5 hrs up and backNozzer30/01/2018
Skulking in the forest avoiding rain and gales out west. The voie normale from the Strathrory parking area, then up the logging road to the high point, and where it begins to descend, take the firebreak on the left. Almost flat, with a decent deer track, up to the fence, and follow this across boggy ground to pick up the summit firebreak on the right. Good deer tracks take you to the scruffy summit hemmed in by forestry.Gill23/12/2017
From cycle track car park to W. The key is the ride which heads NE from sharp bend at 683 786. Then easy up edge of forest before plunging into forest for a brief spell.Thearlaichdubh25/09/2017
