5th tump of 10 on a 35.4km route from Braaid to Laxey, climbing The Mount, Slieau Chiarn, Archallagan Hill and Slieau Ruy, continuing on the broad ridge over Lhargee Ruy to then climb over a series of steep folds (caused by streams) to reach the summit, recording 492m @ SC 34340 84325. I continued North to reach a junction of paths before heading NE to Slieau Maggle...Dazingdale20/07/2018

Approached from the north. No view due to low cloud. Met Campbell Singer on path by my parking spot during my descent.assynt_bob04/08/2015
Met assent-bob shortly after starting off. He was on his way back after an early start. From the north along bridle way and up easy close cropped heather slopes to misty flat summit.Campbell Singer04/08/2015
Started at the Governer's Loch's Road (Greenway) and made may way to the foot of the hill and then picked my way up the hill. No clear path really just avoided the rougher bits. Summit has stone cairn and wooden orienteering marker post.dreeder7503/08/2015
From B10, good track then faint path to summit, visited a number of potential points other then obvious.rhalstead04/05/2015

Geoff M6PYG and I activated this summit after GD/GD-002 Slieu Freoaghane. Started off on a good track then had to cross large areas of heather to get to the summit. Ideal for HF activations with good post to fix hf dipole pole.G4OOE08/10/2013

There are currently 820 Humps in IOM, E and W. This is my 819th! Typical grouse moor on the end of a bridleway.Martin R05/09/2011
From the north. Followed track then through heather. can avoid most of it. Cairn seems the highest but there are other contenders. Had a good wander around.destaylor29/07/2009
5th of 10 summits visited on a scorching day. Parked at 34988 86261 but could have saved 2 km of walking by driving to 34160 85425. Visited 3 other spots that looked as high as the cairn at SC 34341 84323signyred30/06/2009
