Lovely walk in from Dog Falls car park.bjewing17/11/2018
From Beinn nan Sparra South Top. This involved a steep descent through trees and then a steeper ascent, just to the left of the impressive cliff, through heather and broom. Down north to a path marked on my map and followed it west and northwest to a forest road. However, this path did not actually exist to the west of NH 25852 25359Alan Moore20/04/2018
From NE, Dog Falls car park FoC in winter. Walked forest road until NNW of summit then steeply up thru open pine and birkwood. Rounded outcrop at summit with pointed outcrop a little lower I thought. On a day when gales battering high hills, this was a good target. Down SW to miss crag then to S top.RHW23/12/2017
Also from Dog Falls but followed path off forest trail from ca265258 to rough open summit area. Initial fallen trees fairly easily bypassed and a reasonable track thereafter.Tony S28/10/2017
From Dog Falls car park, going uphill through the trees directly north of the hill. Space between the trees but it's filled with vegetation. On the summit there's a pointed rock which really ought to be the top but it's probably the outcrop at the south western endColin Crawford15/08/2016
