From Mar Lodge, on track ascending to WNW, turning NNW, then trodden path up past a solar panel directly to summit, returned same waykdbennett18/08/2019
From Linn of Dee car park out to bridge then up track - fence/stile mentioned in book gone but one post left and cairn indicates path more than atv. Absolutely cracking little hill with fabulous views all round.SS29/07/2019
From Lin of Dee car park, easy stroll through lovely woodland and then moorland to summit. Dropped down to Derry Lodge track and back to cp. Golden eagle on way back.MichaelF19/05/2019
Solo. Sunny, calm day with great viz. Parked at Culbokie. Lovely walk across zigzagging tracks then ATV tracks to summit. Fantastic views of Eastern Cairngorms, Beinn a Bhuird and Ben Avon. 1 1/2 hours.alexmaclennan08/04/2019
From Lui Bridge, upstream a mile to the next bridge then up through Doire Bhragaid. Path all the way to top from junction of ATV tracks. We had a quick enjoy of fine views before a snow shower hit- fortunately we had the strong wind behind us as we continued to a W top, then some masts. We walked back along the service track in sunshine with fine views again. The rivers- Quoich, Lui, Dee and Ey- all looked impressive on this walk. Just right for the conditions- mountains above 3500 ft appeared as a chaotic jumble of cloud rock, snow and heavy showers today. With brother, Petepwheeler24/03/2019
SMMC Muir of Inverey meet. With Alan Horberry, Alan Young, Bill Bracewell, Jim Jack, Monica Rogerson + Trevor Webster.clashcityrocker14/11/2018
A nice walk from a parking spot near a rough track that goes up to the mapped reservoir, about 300m W of Mar Lodge entrance. Along the road to pick up JDeF's route, an easy track through lovely pines. The gate and stile have long gone, and just a fence post remains. The path to the top is marked by a small cairn. Superb views all the way. Direct line down from the track to the reservoir in deep heather, then to the car on the reservoir track. When I say reservoir, it's a shed housing the water supply for Mar Lodge.Gill24/09/2018
