From Ranochan, new hydro road to 210m (GPS). Did not fancy the left bank, especially scramble back up from the ravine crossing at the hydro scheme, so mounted the ridge above the right bank of the Allt Raineachan stream and continued to 400m, then slightly left to cross the stream easily at 480m. From here, a straight channel leads to a minor corrie at 843837 582m, bear slightly right to get to the summit.Topographer5704/05/2017
Up the hydro track from Ranochan for a km or so - not pretty but quick - and very pleasant walk after that using the stream as a guide straight to the summit.dickscroop31/05/2016
From Ranochan up the new hydro scheme track to about 200m then up ridge line to left of burn. A nice hill, wintry weather.jenx26/04/2016
With Jenx from Ronochan, used the scar that is a new hydro scheme up to 250m, then on left stream bank heading direct to top. Several smaller bumps on way. Up and down in 1.44hr.mins. Cold squally snowshowers interspered with warm sun.nordicstar26/04/2016

Solo, from the A830 at 848817. Very steep, head-high bracken, torrential rain and the burns in spate - great fun!amswanston29/08/2014

Parked on A830. On track, over locked deer gate, steeply uphill in forest to where it turns uphill. Path with some footprints started here, over a bridge and by strem. Path got fainter in a swampy bealach, where streams ran in 3 directions. Onto grass steeply uphill by craggy outcrops to drop on the other side. Two dips across the route and to top at 12.05. 10 stones in a heap on top of a protruding crag. Muck, Eigg, Rum, S na Ciche, An Stac, Utha, the Ben, Loch Eil, Odhar Mhor, Rois Bheinn and numerous others.arranc31/05/2010

Ascent combined with a re-ascent of Sgurr an Utha.JohnW04/05/2006
Solo. From car park west of Allt Fith a Chatha on A830 Mallaig road. I went up the track, which replaces the path, on the east side of Allt Fith a Chatha. Where the path shown on the 1976 1:50,000 map crosses a burn this track goes E up the hillside. I followed the original path; this is not very good. At the watershed I went ~W and then up the rather vague NE ridge of Glas-charn to reach the summit. I had succeeded where previously I had failed. Descended S and over Sgrr a Mhuidhe and point 562m.pwbellarby07/04/2002
