Soggy track beside forest. Easy! Forestry planting in progress over large area to north.jenx27/10/2019
from the west,quad bike track to the top.robertphillips26/08/2019
A9 closed so rather than sit in queue popped up to bag the pillar. The quad bike track at side of wood largly dry after the long spell of good weather.cjo08/06/2018
Here for the trigpoint. TP:UK log: Parked near the end of the track and headed up to trigpoint. Easy enough but very boggy and deep in places, Hamish thought he could bog surf which meant one of us had to go in and retrieve all three dogs, up to my waist nearly! Trig on the other side of the fenceline to track but there is a gate a few hundred meters before the trigpoint.thejackrustles25/05/2018
FRom west up a grassy track in places. Quite dry with it being late August. WIth Barbara. Huge clear views.Campbell Singer30/08/2016
Followed line of forest almost to summit. Great views.Barbara Singer30/08/2016
From NN 72040 62904 on minor road south of Trinafour. Doing several hills in the area. Went up from the SW by the edge of the wood and afterwards went west by the edge of the wood.Alan Moore24/04/2016
From due west. Track shown on map hardly exists and has given way to swamp in places.Topographer5722/07/2015
Between showers, on the way to Dornie. Looked a dull hill but good views all round, not a bad path.alda16/05/2015
After Leagag, follow the track on N side of forest. Easy,Boring, then Drumcroy hillThearlaichdubh19/04/2014
P at N end of forest. The track isn't. It's tyre tracks through mud and some drier areas. Top is close to trig.chrisbien25/08/2011
Up and down in less than 1hr, would make a good consolation prize on a poor day as there is a trig marking summit and fence/plantation to follow all the way to the top.PeteF18/08/2010
Beautiful Alpine conditions on crystal powder snow. Easy walk from North using apparent quad trak up edge of plantationhillhunter03/03/2010
