From the old road bridge. The start by the river is horrible ground (bogs, tussocks, rough as the proverbial dog's appendage) so start climbing ASAP. Rising traverse gives better going through long grass to the bealach, pick a line up the hill, then you're rewarded for your effort by a short but sweet ridge walk. Fine views but not the nicest going.Gill15/09/2021

Parked on old road near Loch Raog bridge. Rapid walk on tarmac road to lodge, crossed the bridge and across rough stuff to a stream about 3' wide. Used stones to cross dry shod. Uphill on spongy stuff onto undulating grass and final rise to stony top and a cairn at 13.35. Then due west to another cairn 300m away seemed to be lower.arranc26/06/2010
