Solo. Through gate at end of road at HU58066449 and up track that takes one most of the way to the summit. Near the summit are the remains of a burial cist and a plantie-crub (small walled enclosure for growing cabbage plants).pwbellarby18/06/2019

Parking at end of road in Nisthouse. Good grassy track up to within 200 mts of top which is just beyond old tower. Remains of chambered cairn next to tower. Lovely views. A couple of bonxies interested in each other and not Barbara for once.Campbell Singer11/06/2019
Easy stroll up a grass track. Found the remains of a chambered cairn a few mts from top.Barbara Singer11/06/2019
To the end of the public road at Nisthouse, and parked next to a trailer. Through the gate onto a good track, continuing as an ATV track almost to the sheepfold at the top. An old gun platform, and concrete wreckage of a building, and the summit is short way beyond.Gill26/08/2018
