Slogged across dry bog from end of track N of Loch an Dithraibh the spiralled up S and E side. Descended to E side of Loch Fionnnaich then returned down for slog back to bike.Eddie19/08/2016
Wet approach, steep in parts from Kinloch cottage.Martin R22/05/2016
I suspect this peak, the lowest on the Ben Loyal range, is not much visited, but we did it anyway. It involved losing a lot of height from Sgor Cheirich, descending to Loch Fhionnaich before gaining almost 150m to the summit (suprised it's not a sub-Marilyn). Small in stature but big on views.jonglew23/05/2012
