This felt like a hill too far. I was kna, er very tired.IanHHill26/05/2012
Sign near bridge implies path through forest to summit, not true and breach of Access code. Involves climbing over double deer fence too. Coming back I headed for Puiteachan,worked around high locked gate and used the track.Martin R15/03/2012

ran with alextom smith03/04/2010
Parked at Puiteachan in Glen Loy. On track to new bridge, around back of house, by side of electrified cattle fence uphill over very rough stuff, churned by cattle. To open moor west of forest to cross a new deer fence at its junction with the new cattle fence. Why don't they build stiles? Onto grass for last 500' on a 45 degree slope with stone runs and to top at 11.55. A few stones marked the top. Magnificent stone man visible from the glen, not at the top. Fort William scarring the views. Better views from a cairn to SE. My 200th Graham. Ptarmigan.arranc06/07/2009
