From the church at Lochbuie. Around shore to old chapel, then up on sheep and deer tracks. Summit now adorned with a rock and a couple of stones.PGCE21/02/2020
Parked at The Old Post Office Tea Hut, looking rather derelict - round the bay to the chapel - straight up behind picking up sheep and deer tracks all the way to the summit. A pleasant walk.Chris Peart16/11/2019
From parking at Lochbuie by the tearoom. Over the stile at the chapel then found difficulty locating a path but found it further up. Wonderful weather so the views were superb.NormanW08/08/2019
Lovely Lochbuie! Used the bikes around the bay then up from near the chapel. Beautiful day.jenx25/08/2016
With Maol Ban anti clockwiae from Barachandroman. Spectacular wilderness walk, no paths but not too bad underfoot. Great views across Firth of Lorne and plenty of eagles seen.AndrewFinnimore10/05/2016
Wonderful windswept hill from the Lochbuie carpark. brilliant style behind the chapel/mausoleum across the bay, then follow the well trodden sheep tracks upwards. On the way down make sure you keep W as the slopes of Maoll a Bhann are very unpleasant. Look at both the chapel and Moy Cstle. Refreshments are available in the hut in the carparkThearlaichdubh04/05/2016
With SG. A stalkers path starts climbing the hill well left from the stile. Chapel well worth popping in.Smudge02/06/2015
Foul day from the onset. It did clear up a bit for a few hours, found a stalkers path from the chapel which made it easytallblond01/06/2015
Drove up as far as Laggan Lodge, then set off up pony tracks directly up the hillside into mist and light drizzle. From here, GPS navigation was required to reach summit. Returned in heavy rain.Topographer5703/05/2013
