Drove down to water treatment plant (NB 2613 4368) on reasonably good vehicle access track. 1st of a round of 5 hills, with nephew Andrew Purkiss.jonglew23/09/2017
A very good hill considering its modest altitude. Walked to the waterworks, then got up close to the crags on grassy trods. Found a howff below one of the bigger crags, marking the start of excellent grassy sheep trods through the crags. Over a flat bit, then a wide heathery gully to the top. Easy going, fairly dry, and superb views. Especially smug to be dry and looking south to see Harris and Uig being drowned.Gill22/09/2017

Along tarmacked access road & parked by old waterworks at 261436. Apart from a short stretch before the road gate, tarmac is still in good condition - SSE to top of wide grass gully & then a short walk to summit cairn. (S)gerrybowes21/06/2017
