|A number of walkers have noted that they were discouraged from accessing this hill by a land manager in the area.
Land managers may ask the public to avoid an area of land or take a different route to allow them to manage the land or to
protect their safety i.e. when felling trees or gathering livestock, however the request must be reasonable.
Members of the public have a duty to act responsibly when exercising their access rights, you can find more information
about your rights and responsibilities at the Scottish
Outdoor Access Code website.|
If you encounter anyone who tries to stop you from exercising your rights of access, and you believe that their request is unreasonable you should report the incident to the relevant Access Authority. In Argyll & Bute call Jolyon Gritten the Access Manager on 01546 604 314 or email Jolyon.Gritten@argyll-bute.gov.uk. If you feel that the incident was threatening or you were intimidated you should contact Police Scotland on 101 and make a formal report, requesting an Incident No.. Always avoid confrontation even if you feel that the land manager is in the wrong, after all you can always enjoy a walk elsewhere.
For information on reporting incidents elsewhere in Scotland the Mountaineering Council of Scotland has a useful webpage.

|Direct route on track S of Daltote Cottage - room for one car by gate - up to memorial bench - high ground to summit - ATV track in places - fine wild area of rock and lochans.||Chris Peart||12/08/2018|
|From the large parking area on the B8042 just east of Loch Arail. A lovely summit, pity about the wet, tussocky approach.||Alan Moore||09/04/2018|
|Delightful walk from Daltote Farm past horses and sheep along good track (not driveable) to bench commemorating a guy called Donald who built the track. Wonderful views west across Sound of Jura and south to Ireland. Quite a poignant spot really. Easy enough to the summit, keep a higher line to avoid any boggy bits. A little less than 4hrs at a steady pace and a couple of short stops.||AndrewFinnimore||12/07/2017|
|From Daltote to bench and then to summit. Also visited the SE Top which I see has been measured as lower, but my GPS gave a reading 2m higher !||NormanW||29/04/2017|
|A nice easy stroll from Daltote, along the very pleasant track which goes along the Eas Daltot to the nice bench at Bealach Gaothach. Nice woodland, great views of Loch Sween, all becoming a bit more wild and woolly towards Loch nan Sgratha. ATV tracks lead over Bruach an t-Sidhean (dry and grassy) to Loch na-Inghinn, then it's every man for himself across the bogs to the summit. It was blowing a howling gale and raining heavily off and on, but would undoubtedly be a pleasant walk in calmer conditions.||Gill||25/12/2016|

|From Kilmichael. Awkward dry stream crossing under unmarked dam at 782847. Tried leaving track at 782844, but the forestry was impenetrable (expletives not reproduced here!). Tried going to track end at 794843 but descent to burn was too steep. Eventually found a clearing somewhere in between which led easily to the burn but squeezing into and back out of rough deer exclusion zone was unpleasant, did not find gates. Summited then headed SW to track at 774823 and eventually thumbed a lift back from 754844 to Kilmichael. This was pleasanter albeit longer than the inward route.||Topographer57||30/05/2014|

|From Inverlussa church to hydro dam, then forest track over bridge to fire break. Gate in deer fence over burn, then boggy climb to end of ridge.||neimcv||27/04/2012|
|Parked at Ashfield by Loch Sween. Past house, over locked forestry gate on road up hill for about a mile. Level section for another mile. Gingerly over vile brush to cross a stream over a deer fence with help of a tree. and very rough tussock, rocky outcrops, swamps and erratics, steeply up with fence falling away to right. Bore left over long finger of hill barring a more direct route. Ravens. Around to right steady progress through rocky slopes and a final 10' rock face to ridge. Bore right to top at 14.20. 15 inch cairn near large bouldery dome. to SE top.||arranc||29/04/2007|
