Parked by the little quarry, then ATV track to the waterfall and on, to about half way up the hill. Not a very inspiring walk up the hill, just plod up the grass but the summit plateau is a real gem. Beautiful lochans, various rocky bumps, fine views, skylarks and golden plovers. Well worth a very long loaf in the sun drinking tea and then strolling round all the bumps.Gill26/06/2021

With Dave Roeder. Parked at col (9:40) and went NE up mostly pathless grassy slopes to summit. Magnetic rock played tricks with compass. Back by same route. Weather threatening.dbb04/05/2019

Ascended after climbing Beinn na Sreine from the high point on the road. Good views and visibility on the summit but the highlight was the white tailed eagle, soaring overhead and giving me a lengthy inspection on the descent.JohnW19/04/2016

Parked off road below forest edge then an easy angled walk to summit to be met there by a hail storm.Dugswell228/05/2015
With Ajenx from road col to SW, space for a car 100m up from bridge on hill side of road. Easy walking up grassy slopes using ATV track initially then deer tracks. Blustery cold NE wind so used mountain ridge for cover before open summit. On to A'Mhaol Mhor next and super sea views. Good way to close out 10 days on Mull.nordicstar02/05/2015
