From parking by cottage at E end of Loch Scammadale Across the bridge over the Allt Bragleenmore, passing a small Buddha on a stone, then L through the gate to join the track above the farm. I left it before a small ford, following an ATV track for a while, then heading for the summit over grassy knolls. Views to Mull and in all directions. Scammadale wonderfully peaceful.Nick Down121/04/2024
On my OS map there is a bridge over the stream at 907 204. There is no bridge , but there is a wide area if big stones which will allow several cars to be parked without interfering with any agricultural or estate activities. Much evidence of very high water levels from Storm Babet ( sp). Usual way onto old drovers route which winds its way up hill. Where that track ends on my OS mapping i just plodded up hill. Many ups and downs. Flattish area is mushy and soaking. Sheep being gathered for tupping.VerySlowPlodder08/11/2023
Boltons parking spot below is a good one.Better hill than expected.Friendly farmer at Bragleenmore.ARM27/10/2023
The grass verges at Bragleenmore were boggy after rain, so we parked at a junction up the track between the two bridges - despite the sign a farmer said it was OK. Then took the track from the farm, turning off too early to find the ATV track. Galltywenallt29/03/2023

Recorded route and write-up at:
The verges were all very boggy at the road end but the shepherd at Bragleenmore let me park. Ascent by the handy track as others.Chris Peart14/04/2017
From parking area near Bragleenbeg, as grass was too wet for verge parking. Up the track from Bragleenmore, then on ATV tracks to a sheep feeder, ATV tracks up right, then strike out to the summit across the nicely spaced tussocks (as in your feet will fit nicely on the smooth bits in between). Nice grassy summit cone with good bits of views between storm clouds. First bits of storm Barbara beginning to arrive, so strong winds and fierce snow on the way down.Gill22/12/2016
