From Ceann Tarabhaigh, good roadside parking. Followed ATV tracks N a lot of the way although very boggy, easier to keep off them. Kept well W of Roineabhal, sharp left at NB 2258 22317, ATV track continues up and over a small hill descending to water's edge at NB 2211 2231, not at the mapped ford further S. Diagonal crossing approx 30m in distance, water depth just above the knee. Large boulders in fairly fast flowing water, poles very useful. Summit cairn c400m after crossing.jonglew28/09/2019
From SSE, good ATV track then calf deep wade across river where ATV track crosses. Sizeable cairn given remote location. 3h30 round trip incl 3 Tumps en routeRHW14/05/2019
Mis-read Brian's grid ref for ford and assumed it to be that marked on 1:25k at Loch outflow , big mistake a perilous crossing best avoided .chalky195303/09/2017
