Logged Descriptions  (logged by 27 users)ByDate of Ascent
A pleasant short walk on an afternoon's drive. From the Glen Quaich road along the track, up a tiny ridge path and on to the summit trig, with superb views across Loch Tay, then over heather moorland to the E Top and back to the track. The E Top is marked by a modest, four stone cairn.Nick Down131/03/2019

Track from N then short moorland stroll. Quick and easy.Lindsay M11/09/2015
Slightly lower E summit nicer with craggy drop-off. From Road pass, after Sgliata. Last summit of a 3 week trip and certainly not its most exciting, but a nice fast descent N along spur.RHW21/06/2015
From N via track.jimbloomer14/06/2013
Came off track about highest point. Got caught in peat hags. Came back further to S - a bit damp but no hags. Top has about 4 candidates but think it is E of a rock.chrisbien19/11/2011
