Via the gully as most others have done.Peterb15/12/2019
From minor road to East, with Ellie dog.BLACKHILL13/05/2019
Parked at the cattle grid to the east and went through the deer gate just north of the house. Head for the gully which is easy enough. Headed over to the 'old' top. Solo walk of just over the hour.bolton16/02/2019
From parking by cattle grid to east.rhalstead19/06/2018
Solo, from the east.amswanston25/05/2018
From the east, starting at pedestrian gate N of cottage. Easiest route appears to be via a gully that leads up to a col south of main summit.Topographer5721/04/2018
From the east, parked north of the cottage opposite a pedestrian gate into the lovely woods. Through these, a bit of heather bashing into the big gully, and follow grassy deer tracks up the gully. Easy but steep. Turn right at the top for a short stroll to the top, and wonderful views.Gill30/03/2018
Easy ascent from minor road. Great views from the summit.BigJ05/07/2017
Parked and route as alda. Sunny, warm, calm and great clear views.iangalbraith26/03/2017
2 of 4: From Tarsaid Old Top.ChrisR17/01/2017
Last Marylin of 2016. Very wet day, but clear Summit from the obvious large Layby to the north. With Kenny R, Alison Coull, Gillian, Ali. Both summits visited, limited views with low cloud.N.Morters31/12/2016
From NH4983613020, where there was room to pull the van off the road behind a passing place. Slow going! Route and write-up at:
Re-visited to make certain both summits done.richtea504010/05/2016
Parked on minor road due east of summit opposite gate, easy ascent through open birch woods and heather, on top in about half an hour.alda21/03/2016
Crossed from the old top to this one whilst there in Feb. It appeared higher so always worth the walk. The two points are so close its odd that the existing records were not automatically updated.nordicstar04/02/2016
Snuck through the fence and up through the birch woods. A nice hill. Walked over both tops as they appeared similar heights.jenx04/02/2016
see previous for Meall an Tarsaid- hill 652Thearlaichdubh14/08/2015
from the east at glen fechlin over deer fence.robertphillips15/03/2015
From Killiechoilum, space for parking near house seemed ok but I couldn't find anyone to ask. From there, a direct way up through newly planted area- so poor going. Visited both tops then found much nicer way down using a landrover track until it disappeared in a sallow and birch scrub filled valley- but always an easy way through. From top, fine view esp. of Monadh Liathpwheeler18/05/2014
From WNW, deerfence gate at cattle grid. Revisited both summits.RHW04/05/2014
Tough going up through new plantings from the NW. Not recommended!AndrewFinnimore11/08/2013
