Unfinished business from year ago when heavy rain/snow melt deterred the ford crossing. From south on track, itís upward progress cut across by the logging track (not mapped). Unlike others crossed over and up the continuation of the minor track. Recent chainsaw work cleared the windfall, then shrinks to path to exit woods below a small Crag/scree. Turned on the left (west) there are 3 cairns close together at the base of scree to help identify route back into woods to path. Strpeep slope zig zags through bluffs on vague path and onto rocky summit. Outstanding viewpoint northwards. Sunny day and startled a Sea Eagle off the ground barely 80m away when nearing summit. Nice little hill 2 of 2 MarilynN.Morters03/08/2019

2of4: From Glen Lonan at Chlachadubh.ChrisR02/10/2018
Parked roadside at start of mapped track (NM 9462 2747). Right fork once over the gate and into the woodland - track here very faint but meets a good logging road at NM 9455 2798. Followed this approx 500m ENE until an opportunity presented to take a route up the hill, northerly for first 300m, then northwesterly for the top. Trog pillar remains marks the summit.jonglew25/07/2018
From Clachadubh, over ford, up via forest tracks and then traces of a path once out of the trees. Fallen trees in forest are fairly easily avoided.Winterfloodian31/05/2018

Parked with permission NM 947 274 on house forecourt. Track from NM 9444 2785 not obvious and blocked in parts by fallen trees. especially at junction with new logging road at NM 9452 2800. This contours round the hill to an ascent route up a very steep grassy slope at NM 9502 2824. Heather summitcarole engel13/05/2018

Difficult to see a route up that doesn't involve at least some bashing through forestry. There's a massive new track which contours along the south side (not shown on OS map) but it doesn't particularly help. Beautiful little viewpoint once you get there though.Colinmac200515/05/2016
Crossed at ford, wellies unnecessary, dry, cold wind, good views, some sun.iangalbraith30/04/2016
A good steep climb heading for more open slopes to the right after reaching the big new track. A goog viewpoint.jenx03/01/2016
With Jenx from small bridge on the minor road directly opposite on south side. Folow the burn to where it meets a smaller one and cross. Make for the tall lonesone pine and cross 10m to right and gain a small track. Follow this up left and then right to main forest track. Across this to gain a grassy couloir which can be followed to near summit. Old trig in bits!nordicstar03/01/2016

My 1000th Marilyn.PGCE03/05/2014
From Clachadubh on a sunny spring morning. A track fords a stream (warning #1: the stream may not be fordable dryshod, I took it barefoot) and leads through the forestry, across a heavy duty forestry track (warning #2: several fallen trees must be circumvented) to the open hillside. The heathery crags can be bypassed on short grass. Great views of Mull, Glen Etive and a snowcapped Ben Cruachan.Topographer5711/03/2014
From Glen Lonan. Easy enough through trees to summit.AndrewFinnimore28/08/2013

Walked up from Glen Lonan and then down northnortheast to Clais Dhearg. Some nasty forestry to get through on both sides of the summit.Alex C06/08/2012
Lovely view point today with Jim Bloomer.Dugswell208/06/2012
Driech day - clag appeared no view. Some struggles with windthrow.fasgadh14/01/2012
walked with clairetom smith26/10/2008
Revisit. Shattered remnants of a cylindrical trig, with evidence of FB recess, lying around the still-intact centre Bolt. No FB or spider. Fine crag-girt summit, hard to reach thru dense Sitka with a few steep crags to avoid. From SW, beeline from 941280 ran into awkward crags; descended SW, found a track at head of stream, followed this SSE, exited at 942942, then rushy wet pasture back to bridge. This latter route possibly the best.RHW01/09/2007
Ascended after Beinn Ghlas from track near Clachadubh.JohnW24/06/2007
Across stream in wellys on green track into forest. Narrower to right and uphill. Some footprints up through trees to forest edge, underneath scree slopes and up a grass rake to final heaves of hill. Using hands around back of final crag to top at 14.05. Fierce gale.arranc03/09/2004
Failed at the so-called ford. Restarted at the road bridge, climbed and found old bridleway.Eddie19/11/2003
Date is first visit. Notes from later...fine little hill, superb viewpoint (hence name apparently - HMcL). easy river xing 950275, +/- easy passage thru mature spruce; skirt/scramble crag; heather to summit RHW26/12/2000
