Logged Descriptions  (logged by 51 users, only the latest 50 shown - Show all)ByDate of Ascent
Found a path just off the B844 approx SW of summit - path eventually was swamped by bracken, but higher up this cleared - then a grassy approach to summit from which are excellent views. Descended fairly steeply E then walked S (Dunmor). On the ascent, I saw a distant lone figure descending the hillside in a sea of deep bracken - was it Norman? was it Richard?ger24/07/2018
Parked in the big car park at Ellenabeich then walked past hall and turned left up a distinct path cleared of bracken. Leaving that got into a real brackenfest. Wrong time of year for this hill but good views on a clear day such as this.NormanW24/07/2018

4th tump of 9 today afer Easdale Island then a trip to Insh with Adrian then Dun Mor and traverse over. Explored all bumps with several summit contenders before descending steeply, continuing to track where Adrian was waiting with his car for a joint outing to Meall Oban Seil...Dazingdale18/05/2018
Trig on short grass in sheep pasture with superb vies. Nearby ridgelet as high.Sunshine. Returned to Ellenabeich carpark via village hall.Denise 20/04/2018
Up from overnight van camp at Easdale. Round back of old highland arts exhibition place, fenced off so skirted around from Western seaboard CP. Steep up on old grass tracks, weaving contouring lines visiting fine cliffs and rough moors to summit. Back via the fine crag top overlooking our next objective Easdale Islandnordicstar15/04/2018
Quick up and down via Dunmor Fm. Very steep grassy slopes, trickier down than up.jonglew12/08/2017

After Dun Mor, pleasant traverse without too many sudden downs. Good. Back more directly to path which comes from the community centreThearlaichdubh14/03/2017
From Ellenabeich bus stop. Gate at back of craft shop car park now blocked by fence, so took track eastwards past houses to reach the B844: gate on left shortly afterwards gave access to track northwards. Right at fork on to footpath leading to tracks (often faint) towards summit ridge. Return to fork to take westward track above cliffs to Dùn Mòr.mainnirnamfiadh05/09/2015

From Hell'n'back car park, then behind the Highland Art place, through a gate and on to the hill. Returned by following the escarpment and dropping off to the east to a farm track. Added in a quick visit to the P30 top of the remains of Easedale.Martin R27/04/2012
