As others from West Strathan on an extremely windy day with frequent showers of rain and hail. Wind especially strong near summit and at one stage I did not think I could battle against the gusts to get there but did so. Summit photos from a crouched position.NormanW25/10/2019
Started at 563637 were a good track heads up to 548639.There is just room to park up. Wet after heavy rain but clear and bright on relatively easy going terrain. Interesting summit features. 2 hour solo up and down. Decided on this hill in case access is restricted after the planning application.bolton01/09/2019
Followed tracks from West Strathan, then direct NW up to summit after track end. With MvT.kdbennett19/06/2019
A sunny afternoon stroll.Dugswell216/05/2019
With trimarc2. Nice views. Always love a trig.Fionalevey12/05/2019
With Fiona. From Dainafree where there is limited parking. Track to Loch na h-Uamhachd. An indistinct track leads west from Here to southern corner of loch, and then across the moor. Followed this until South East of top and then took direct line.trimarc212/05/2019
My final non-Stac Marilyn. From road end at Dalvraid. Long chat with local crofter about the proposed new rocket launch site (he was opposed). He reckons the hill will be within the exclusion zone (permanently or just on launch days I'm not clear) so might be worth doing this one before it's planned to start operating in 2021. Views on both sides.

2 of 3: From Achininver.ChrisR16/08/2018
From West Strathan road end, due west up to track then on to track end and SE ridge.Topographer5701/06/2018
A great hill for an evening stroll. From the track starting at West Strathan, just below Dalvraid. Marginal parking, can just squeeze onto the verge and not block the track. Easy walking, then a soggy ATV track continues up the hill and through a gate, up short dry heather then the track continues directly below a bump, becoming a path heading towards another steeper short heathery stony slope. Easy walking to a cairned rocky top with great views, then down on easy ground to a boggy area, then up to the summit. Two parallel walls in a dip below the trig, a shelter on the far wall, and the trig enclosed by a wall, and a cairn above. Fine views all the way, and an excellent walk.Gill07/05/2018
From bridge at Achininver. Up track to Lochan then slopes of grass and short heather to summit with fantastic views. Summit with plenty stone walls, fully enclosing trig with nice staircase, someone been busy. 2/3N.Morters06/05/2018
Parked Achininver, just over bridge (either side has a space). Up track to it's end, just beyond loch. Behind loch and up fence, then to summit. Slightly longer, but track compensates for that, easily. Sunny, cold breeze but excellent views.iangalbraith26/03/2018
Weather fair with moderate wind.MountainMac30/04/2017
This would be a nice hill on a good day I'm sure. Got a bit of a soaking and no views.jenx16/06/2016
With Jen from the road end. Track then moor past the lochans. Windy and dreek. Went to both summit areas, the first inadvertently, then current top.nordicstar16/06/2016
Park at Dalvraig road end. Up track to 584 639 then Argocat track and short heather to summit. Back via Loch na H-Uamhachd.PeteN03/04/2015
Track from West Strachan then easy enough to summit.AndrewFinnimore21/09/2014
What a surprisingly interesting summit with shiny rocks, strange enclosures and magnificent views of the islands to the n north (which we were due to visit the next day)Martin R24/05/2014
A short walk, just over 5 miles round trip, from Dalnafree in Strath Melness took us to the summit of this Marilyn. Good farm track to Loch na h-Uamhachd, then we veered off over rough heather but generally easy walking. Views all round were great.jonglew22/05/2012
Parked at a cattle grid on road to West Strathan. On access road over humpy moor, bore left around a large lochan and another beyond the next heave of moor. A mile to long ridge. Cairn visible to the left for most of the way was not the top. Turned right to column 5495 with OS tag surrounded by well built wall 10' x 8' x 3' thick. 13.25. With a roof on you could live here! Large neat stone wall between two crags further away.arranc27/07/2008
Revisit. Fine complex isolated hill in fine setting, nice views late evening. Straightforward moorland ascent from West Strathan, picking up the wide track on the way down.RHW18/04/2008
Out and back from Achininver.Eddie03/12/2005
Date is first visit. Notes from later...interesting approach, fine complex isolated hill in fine setting. Lubinvullin bridge 568646, direct to summit RHW17/10/2001
