Seemed like a long way in rain from Dun Chonallaich, over sometimes tussocky ground, though animal tracks helped in places. Good viewpoint. Descended to a wall, then followed a second wall down to a track towards Auchinellan. Skirted around the wood back to the road to Ford.LizH29/03/2023
From the overgrown grassy track to the West. After short walk through trees, hill looks impressive and rocky but easy enough from North slopes.NormanW15/06/2022
