Usual route from good parking at 323549. Cut the corner to the hill track then straight up to the col near the top, briefly across long grass and hags to the ATV track on the summit ridge. Retraced steps.Owen B21/06/2024

From car Park at Bridgend. West along track and then up through track in wood to pick up the main track uphill heading south. About 1km before the high point a rough ATV track veers off to the right across the burn and up onto the shoulder of CnC and goes all the way to the top.Jossker25/02/2023

Solo up track from Bridgend car space on corner. Taking in Carn Uileim and Mheall a'Bhogair Mor on the way back.DampandDusty08/05/2022
Access and parking were the only problems. Suspension bruidge locked off, no vehicle access to estate track on S side of river so had to park by gate which extended walk. Route itself no problem. Because of delays in getting going settled on track and then cut u to Meall Doire Fheare and on to Carn na Coinnich.dickscroop20/04/2022
From good parking at Bridgend. Missed first track (looks like someone's drive) so ended up walking the second (main) track from Dalbreac Lodge, bulldozed all the way up to and over the bealach. A couple of river crossings might be fun in a spate. An ATV track does indeed start at 324523, a few 100m on from the small stream crossing, with a wooden bridge contraption on the LHS of the main track and peaty ruts to the RHS, where you are going. The track is soggy but OK, contours up to the bealach, takes you to a nasty swamp but later on takes you efficiently round peat hags. Best off piste after that, because a short soggy climb brings you onto lovely lichen tundra almost all the way to the little pointy summit. Very nice! I took the shorter route back to the Jubilee wood, where a nice track leads through the wood to the E side by the sign. Numerous red kites.Gill08/11/2021

From Milton, little car park at Milton Mill about 500m beyond junction up to the village hall. Up track to just past col, can see summit,took what looked like shortest descent/ascent from track up to the ridge along the side of a small valley. Followed an ATV track along the ridge to the summit. Back the same way. 8 miles approx 4hrsJulieB27/07/2020
From Bridgend where there is ample room for parking. Track now goes much further than shown on the map such that there is even less off-piste effort required to attain the summit.benalder28420/07/2020

Parked at Bridgend and took an estate track to the copse then skirted this left to pick up the track that leads close to the hill itself. A lot of snow from around 450 metres, luckily I was able to use someone’s broken trail from someones previous recent ascent. Glorious blue sky with superb views.Peterb11/01/2018
