As per Rob's route, did it in very dry conditions and found descending the heather ramp a bit of a nightmare. Seemed harder than the wee step up above on the day.Dave McG30/05/2018
Sensational and exposed but it would be hard to dignify this route with the term scramble, most of the rock being decidedly unreliable and steep vegetation being the main feature. I approached from the southern side, using steep grass then probably used the same rock step as Rob - it seemed the only weakness. I looked over at the col to Dun Dubh but no descent possible there; you have to reverse your steps. An approach from the col between the pair would be possible, with safe grassy run outs west and east, but you'd still have to edge round south from there and subject yourself to the exposure of the described routeColin Crawford23/10/2016
From gap/col to N, followed sheep trod (exposed) round E side, scrambled up obvious heather ramp then a rock step (exposed - ~worrying in descent) leads to steep rushy slope hence to flat tussocky summit. Exciting! First tried S and SE side without success. Then skirted back round E side to its taller neighbour.
