Last hill of the day, from the big and very icy Knockfarrel car park. An excellent stroll in the snow, with fine views all round. A bit of dodging, limbo dancing and crawling under wind throw just in case you weren't sure it was a proper Marilyn.Gill15/12/2017
Sunny morning, hill 2 for the day. Parked at the forest car park GR 478574. Track past the Cnocmor lodges where on owner has too much time and too much wood to fashion fun large wood sculptures. At where track bends NE a small gravel pit and faint path easily missed on the left. Followed path to fence below summit and turned right to trigpoint. Fine view to Wyvis and Strathconon.N.Morters22/10/2016
From Blackmuir CP. Then along the ridge to Knock Farril CP. before doubling back to Blackmuir. With Karen.ChrisR08/08/2016
With Jenx from end road parking by Lochview house above Loch Ussie. Asked and given permission. A soggy path to col then up the forest fence path negotiating fallen trees. Top looks like it is trig not stile. Woods all being cleared / cut out.nordicstar05/02/2016

From car park at Knockfarrel. 8/8 cloud cover, mod vis. With PM.CJM11/02/2015
Solo. From Conon Bridge Railway Station. Walked to Knock Farril and then followed path SW towards Cnoc Mòr. Initially good but then difficult to follow due to fallen tree branches. Path going round to S of summit so struck up hillside to trig point. Highest point probably mound in forest near stile. Found a newly cleared path, not shown on my 1:50,000 map, going steeply down western slopes. This took me to Jamiestown. Bus to Conon Bridge for train.pwbellarby27/01/2015
Hill awash with purple heather. Grabbed while doing the trig.BigJ02/09/2014

Here for the trigpoint, up from Cat's back carpark, mooched around for geocache so really hope I visited the highpoint too? Last bit was quite steep but an enjoyable walk, just catching up on logs as we are a little behind!thejackrustles02/12/2013

with JC, O, DC etc. Showers. Wet snow.Martin6630/12/2012
During a New Year week near Beauly. Stroll along the track from Knockfarrel with Martin66, J, JC, Otis, Shaky & the Harts. The most difficult bit was stumbling around the felled forest trying to find the highest point. Settled for the trig point having tripped over various detritus near the stile.NotReallyABagger30/12/2012
Pleasant ridge walk from car park at NH 503 583.martin_hall31/03/2012
Woodland walk from Strathpeffer, though quite a lot of forest has been felled. Direct ascent through forest blocked by fallen trees at one point, traversed L to avoid them and regain path. Trig on top.Aye Jimmy25/10/2011
Easy jog from Knockfarell on dry morning with high grey cloud.Dugswell203/06/2010
Nice walk from Knockfarrel CP, over heathy ridge,forest, good views. Little ascent though,I reckon a run from Conan Br would have been good for more of a challenge but there was plenty of interest in my 90 mins walk.pwheeler27/05/2010
second ascent with Jamievegibagger25/08/2008
Revisit. Trig in clearing just E of stile, with fine view. From WNW, car park, forest road but no obvious path up steep final slope to summit as far as I could see. Descended WSW then N following paths to car park.RHW30/12/2007
