Parked at road / track junction. Up track to mast and gate, then to trig and on to summit cairns.PeterD27/06/2019
Parked at HY 2414 2230. Short walk across muddy pasture to trig pillar first, then across to a pile of rocks at summit.jonglew24/02/2019
A ridiculously easy hill. Drive to the mast, park, hop the gate and reach the trig and the summit across a grassy field with almost no climbing. Good views.Gill24/02/2019
Track from E to comms mast then gate into summit field (pasture) Large levellish summit with trig pillar and cluster of grassy mounds on S edge. Most N mound is a jumble of apparently dumped huge sandstone blocks which overtop the cairn on the mound to its S. Great views.RichardM31/07/2018

New house mentioned by thejackrustles is nearing completion. Drove up track with no issue. Easy bag and no livestock in field today :-)assynt_bob16/04/2017
Massive new house being built at the bottom of the track, had to ask if it was ok to come past as there was at least 12 workmen and various items on machinery in action. The guy digging up the road said 'aye on you go', not sure if he really knew where or what I wanted to go and see but I was soon up and through the open gate under one wee electric fence wire and at the trigpoint. Hoping I passed the high point, fingers crossed whilst loggingthejackrustles23/09/2016

Parked at lane end HY24142 22278. Stroll to top. Trig clearly not the highest point, however to what extent are any of the mounds natural? You'd think someone would tidy up all those old rocks.Martin R12/05/2012
