|Parked on roadside beside stream NE of point 182.Up between stream and fence and straight to mast near point 418 on wet but easy ground. Just before mast picked up a ATV track which took me nearly to the summit. Glorious weather and super 360 views for my 900th Marilyn||Coinneach||13/10/2019|
|The usual route up the stream adjacent to the plantation. Easy on deer tracks, then a tedious trudge across easier angled bogs, thankfully dry. Contoured round the mast bump, then found an ancient stalkers path across the bogs at the bealach and leading to the bogs below the summit plateau. The plateau goes on a bit but reveals fine views of all my favourite mountains.||Gill||20/04/2019|

|Very easy up from the road via stream adjacent to south edge of woodland. Then across the moor. A nice viewpoint for the northern hills.||jenx||21/06/2016|
|Up from the A road to East. Parked at edge of final plantation to Sth on Lairg road. Easy going up deer tracks by stream. Over masted hill then easily to main summit. Excellent views to North of Hope, Loyal and Klibreck plus multiple Marilyn tops.||nordicstar||21/06/2016|
|From the Klibreck footbridge in six inches to a foot of fresh snow, breaking trail all the way.||Chris Peart||12/12/2015|
|From A road to the E. Through plantations and over to summit. Mostly easy ground and fair number of animal tracks.||AndrewFinnimore||14/09/2014|
|From A836 followed the humming from the mast initially and then traversed pathlessly. Drainage ditches not adequate for the job.||Martin R||22/05/2014|
|Parked on verge on A 838. New Brasher boots. Last 2006 pair hadn't lasted long. Up over dryish moor, long deer grass, damp patches. Vagastie in view. Steadily up to visible horizon to a shoulder. Downhill over s swampy area and up to prow of hill. A further drop down to S of a small lochan and up to a grass covered flat area to find a 6 stone small cairn amidst a sea of grass. 15.05.
