Good parking at the entrance to Borrobol. Along the track past Cnoc Dubh, down a bit to a large fisherman's parking area above the NW end of Loch Ascaig. An ATV track leads down to the loch shore (beached boats) then a rough path to the bridge. Lots of snow melt had filled the loch, bridge not quite submerged but the bogs on the other side were deeper than the tops of my boots. Interminable, gruesomely boggy trudge up the hill to the steep bit, then heather, followed by more bogs and tussocks across the summit plateau. Found ATV track to return, only visible on the way down, which leads to a rushy bog further west than the bridge. Beware very deep channel though easily hopped; these bogs much less wet than those by the bridge. Estate owner waiting in landrover, had been watching concerned, as he had previously lost a cow in those bogs! Nice bloke, manages and operates the estate himself. He gave me a lift back to the level crossing.Gill13/03/2020

An easy bike road across bridge, level crossing, and over small hill to loch. Over the little bridge, close by loch end, which was very handy over deep river there. Then straight up to top. Quite easy.jenx26/03/2016
With bikes loosely stashed after the Cnoc we rode on past Borrobol lodge and onto NW end of Loch Ascaig. Good ATV track down to loch shore and bridge over burn. ATV line carries on up hill to approx 260m then good going to summit, if a little steep in places. Weather beginning to break for us.nordicstar26/03/2016
walked along track over railway and turned for the hill at the end of the lochan. Back via Windy Hill.AndrewFinnimore27/09/2014
Park on the road nr the new bridge and walk along the track for 45 min when you see the end of the loch, make your way up the hill from there.tallblond07/06/2014
Drove up from Wormit for a 3 TuMP circuit with Jim and Trichy then back to Helmsdale Hostel. Did the HuMP, Marilyn then TuMP.Dugswell224/05/2014
From the Craggie Road to the south. Easy moorland with little feel of being on a hill. Wind farmers busy trashing land to the south, so a bit of a last chance to see job.fasgadh29/07/2011
Revisit. From NE, footbridge near Loch Ascaig outflow, fairly boggy approach on a wet windy day.RHW23/05/2011

Parked on road at entrance to Borrobol Lodge. Crossed the river and railway - one train going south. Footprints on road to find a small bridge crossing the stream flowing into Loch Ascaig at its west end. Uphill on dryish moor to heather areas and green patches. No deer, grouse or sheep. To sloping top of hill - column about 1/2 mile ahead. To trig 6874 at 11.20. No cairn. Rain came on.arranc25/05/2009
