Limited parking at Tomdoun (NH154010). Along forest tk to estate sign at NH155037. L (W) here along short forest tk to edge of trees and on to open moorland (forest tk E of here is a linear swamp of gloop). One hundred percent swamp all the way to the top and back. Mapped path now barely exists, very difficult to locate from below. In descent the first 50m of steeply down is visible as a zig zag of wide grass ramps, but these soon peter out leaving intermittent, re-wilding, tussocky, very thin bits of FP, in deep veg, which lead back too far E and into the aforementioned gloopIsbjorn01/10/2023
Shortish walk to break up a journey to skye. Room to park at the start of the old tomdoun to cluanie road. had a couple of super days from the other end, so good to try the other side, still metalled in places. The path shown on map does exist, bit patchy in places, think it zig zags near the top, but so patchy i missed most of the zags. be a super viewpoint this hill, high tops all clagged today.hils16/07/2021
Logging the trig with big J, good views down loch LoyneNozzer01/05/2021
Bagging the trig. Limited roadside parking at Tomdoun. Followed the old metalled road roughly north until opposite Lochan Bad an Losguinn. Here a good track leads through the trees and on to the well defined stalkers path. This was followed to the pillar. Great views especially to the west where the usual game of naming the visible peaks was enjoyed. Also bagged the neighbouring Tump on the way down as well as a bonus rivet on a milestone near Tomdoun. With Nozzer.BigJ01/05/2021

With the E Top from Tomdoun. Getting on to the hill involved a thrash but we used the wide firebreak on the return after the E top. The old path is now in such a poor state it is unhelpful.jimbloomer29/02/2016
Rob, I agree that the path is still there, just, but it's fading fast and the starting point is hard to identify.Colin Crawford25/08/2014
From Tomdoun, took the car in a little way, then walked the still-metalled road. Bit messy at start of path but stalkers path up E ridge is good, as were views on fine Spring morning. Descended more directly via the 392m summit. RHW06/05/2012
