Drove past Hartfield then cycled short distance to end of forest on the left. From there, direct ascent up to ridge, steep but just enough wind and cloud for comfort despite the warm and humid air.Topographer5729/06/2019
On heatwave still day w Dave Wragg. Up glen from hostel, steep up south coire wall, down long ridge and terrible descent to S and road, time includes walking to pub. Rounsfell27/06/2019
From Hartfield house, along the track to the end of the plantation, then up the very steep ridge, with good views of the coire. Turn right at the top and stroll to the trig. Very quick descent, smooth, dry ground.Gill06/04/2019
Route as arranc, but found it reasonably straightforward despite hill fog from about 300m.Owen B10/07/2018

With Jenx from Hartfield Field Centre. Parking beside track outside. Cut up to forest edge above hospital then good deer tracks providing an uphill traverse under crags. Above a knoll a break in the hill allows easy access to the ridge, from there to summit is an easy walk. Back over the 5H top and down coire rim direct to track and back to start.

Trig revisit. From SW, rather hot climb from road then nice ridgewalk.RHW30/04/2011
Parked beyond Applecross in a car park by road. On road and onto gentle WDP crossing the brow of the hill. Over dry moor grass with small boulders. Steady plod uphill using large slabs to ease going to a prominent cairn at 10.40. On larger boiler plate slabs with many losses of height - one scarp needed a 500m detour - many lochans, also needing detours to get round. To top at 12.00. 12' dia 5' circular wind break around column 9801. Strong SE wind. My 1,100th Marilyn in Scotland.arranc11/09/2008
