Dirt road to Cougie ok in an astra much slower than locals drive it. Along track 220 double paces to track beside burn. Many deposits left my pony trekking. Through gate in deer fence over several false summits to summit south of trig point. Good views & sunbathed at summit!rogreeves09/05/2017
Followed pony trekking signs along unsurfaced roads to Cougie. It appears to be OK to drive as far as 238206 from where a rough pony track leads SE up through the deciduous forest past many big and tasty bilberries. Turned SW at the bealach up the ridge to the summit.Topographer5721/09/2016

Parked at Cougie by the sheds and ascended the track to the bealach and on to the ridge. We visited the unnamed cairn and then the trig point before going on to the summit.Peterb24/12/2015
As per the log of Peterb. Snow really started to fall on the descent. Climbed the Marilyn Creag Dhubh straight after.bowlesy24/12/2015

From Cougie. A path starts at NH239206, follows a stream, through a gate and across bog to the bealach. And then it is a switchback ride along the ridge, including a trigpoint pillar 400+m from summit. Icy snow, occasional sunny periods giving great views of bigger hills to north and west.

Parked at Cougie. 3 fox cubs on road. Over bridge trying to find Dempsters route. Gave up after getting caught by extensive felling. Eventually to a greener slope over birch felling debris and to deer fence. Over this; absolutely shattered. Turned right over open tussock to find a path by a stream to a bealach at 1750' Steady progress uphill to large cairn visible from car park at 11.45. Continued around to left to upper slopes and column 8180 at 12.05. Continuation to true top about 800m away involves a 100' fall and a similar climb to a lumpish cairn at 12.20.
