Ascent from Loch Fannich, very straightforward and really good views. Some snow showers.fasgadh06/05/2019
As per robertphilipps - on bright cold day. Easy walk, initially on tracks.willyross05/12/2018
Track through forest gives quick ascent on to boggy track towards loch. Then over to climb West Top and main summit. Rain came in on westerly wind.NormanW08/05/2018

self. en route to Gairlochdavidsbatty16/11/2016
Evening walk from A832, large Layby west of Strathbran Lodge. 200m east newish track all the way through forest to mini hydro scheme. Quad tracks then easy ground to summit, thicker heather in places. Brilliant views down Loch Fannich, good sunset as I rushed to get down before dark, helpful track.N.Morters21/10/2016
Parked at roadside space near tge lodge where path comes down on map. Can get through that gate, and another with a conifer growing in it to use path from lodge up to hydro building. Then the track up to 300m intake. Old path to boathouse on lochan then a line across the hills to gain summit. A line back down more directly using the main burn line works well to gain the return track.nordicstar19/08/2016
Track to the boathouse then across to the top. Good route down by stream back to track.jenx18/08/2016
New track from W of Strathbran Lodge but shade would have been preferable. Old track continues for a while onto open moorland the going soon becomes soft. Returned along west ridge, a bit further but worth it for the views.Topographer5716/08/2016
ERBUisdean2529/12/2014
From deer gate west of Strathban Lodge there is a new track as far as a newly built intake. Used the original path part of the way before diverting to P30s. Came back more directly to the intake.Martin R05/10/2014
Good track from lodge through trees then took direct line to summit, no paths, but easier than I'd feared.AndrewFinnimore29/09/2014
Solo assented from loch Fannich not a bad dayNozzer27/10/2013
