From NNW. Parking by gate into field with track. Easy.jimbloomer18/02/2016
from quarry road end. Road was sheet ice. Quarry most impressive, but comms mast should mean that the summit remains for a while. 1st in 2016Thearlaichdubh01/01/2016
up quarry road to the mast then edge of quarry.robertphillips12/01/2015
The lengths (or depths) people will go to prevent others trigpointing. Straightforward amble on quarry road and track to mast. Might be trickier if attempted during a work day.Martin R04/01/2014
