A stunning walk. Good parking opposite the blue cottage west of the hill. An excellent path up the hill alongside a water pipe, towards the second lochan, then north at the path junction. Deer tracks lead easily across the bogs and up the hill with optional scrambling. Across the plateau to the top. Worth visiting all the bumps for fine views. Down north to the Silver Walk, which is always a joy, and a visit to Castle Tioram. Along the private road along the coast and the first track east leads back to the car. Superb.Gill19/09/2019
