From butterfly reserve across bridge and up path to track, across rough ground to gate - locked but you can squeeze under. From there a rough wet and grassy track almost all the way. Great views.nicolajane26/08/2019
Solo trip from south. This would be a weary way without the handy ATV track.Invicta1403/06/2018

From the Butterfly reserve. None seen, perhaps because of the cold. Direct to the top on an ATV track almost all the way. Lovely walk, on snow towards the top, with splendid views. Down to the col and across the rough stuff to Meall Blair. Nasty descent on quagmired ATV track, a small amount of road bash, very pleasant along Loch Arkaig.Gill11/11/2017
Left car at foot of butterfly trail, cycled up tom 075920 and returned to car via two Grahams. Marshy ground shown on map west of hill was not a problem. With hindsight, a triangular walk starting at the foot of a new track at about 100912 would have been better.Topographer5717/07/2017

It has a track. From the butterfly reservation car park. On to a track. Go left a bit and you will see a rv track.tallblond12/09/2015
With Geal Charn et al. From butterfly place - disappointed not to see Chequered Skippers, must demand a refund. Did not see much else because of low cloud. Snow beginning to thaw.Martin R30/12/2014

1 of 3: From Butterfly CP at Loch Arkaig.ChrisR18/12/2012
Parked by butterfly reserve, in short sleeves, Uphill through trees and bracken to open moor and another gate onto a rough road. Crossed stream on road and up over rough ground to a deer fence with locked gate. Climbed over the fence to a buggy track wet in places leading uphill to its end at 2,000'. Pair of grouse. A final easy walk up over short tundra vegetation to a line of old fence posts and to the top at 11.10. Pile of large stones made the cairn. A watershed hill. Mrs B was here in June 1997. Gently downhill for lunch. On further descent felt as if elastic was tied to my back and was unable to put front foot down onto the ground. Leaning backwards, I fell over backwards! Knees very weak and difficult to stand upright. This happened 5 or 6 times. 2 men on mountain motor bikes opened the gate, which I walked through and fell down again feeling very faint. Coffee and glucose tablets. Fell back again into sludge, both boots and socks and backside wet through. Very slowly onto upwararranc24/07/2011
