6/6. Locked gate at 746 351. Can park at junction just before.PGCE04/08/2017
Wrongly assumed the windfarm road was accessible from the single track road to Loch Lussa but there was a locked gate at Corrylach so had a long hike from there up to the summit and back. Later discovered windfarm road starts from the A83 just north of Bellochantuy. There is no locked gate or signs forbidding public use until you get to the first turbines.AndrewFinnimore24/06/2017
