From the Water Works clockwise with 1176Jim.Fothergill18/04/2016
From the water board structures to west. Avoiding worse ground by traversing, animal tracks to gain top. Further summit although shown as less on OS the middle top looks very much higher. Loggednordicstar24/03/2016
A bit of a bog trot.jenx24/03/2016
From the west. Road closure meant I had to cycle the last mile up the road to the gold plated waterworks before heading up the hill into an easterly gale. Dry with hazy sunshine.Viewfinder23/08/2015

Climbed up NW ridge - some parking at start of track.Chris Peart10/11/2010
Parked at side of road and initially followed the Allt na h-Atha burn on a good path heading for Loch a'Ghobhair. Summit, above the loch, is non-descript.jonglew19/05/2010
Parked at Bonar Bridge water works. Old track into the interior, turned right over spongy uneven moor making for horizon. Large area of burnt moor made going much easier. To top at 13.45.arranc09/06/2007
Went up from waterworks over original Marilyn summit. Also went further east (and from photos I confirm that I have been up Alan Dawson's revised Marilyn summit of 2016 too).assynt_bob20/05/2007
