Cycled in from road end at Glen Calvie. Left bike at high point on track just before it drops down to the two holiday lodges. A stony track sets off up the hill for a short bit and then becomes an ATV track crossing soggy ground that goes all the way up, passing through a wooden gate in deer fence and then in amongst the peat hags. At the top area sits a bright white quartz boulder, a couple of peat hags nearby sit slighty higher.Jossker30/09/2023
Parked at Croick church then along the road and through the gate between the cottage and the burn. Over the bridge and up the path to the stile and dog gate. Path soon becomes hard to follow but more or less straight up brings you to the gate in the deer fence (on the way back I followed the path down but it's no better than a wet deer track and I lost it again so it's not worth seeking out). Followed the deer fence up to the Y junction of deer fences. Along left to another fence junction where an ATV track winds through the bog and tussocks. The quartzite block at the top is the most interesting feature of this hill though you do get nice views from it.StueyB30/04/2023

In the midst of peat hacks. Amazing quartzite boulder near/at summit. Looks as though it has been whitewashed. Equal high point on moor a few metres away.Campbell Singer01/05/2017
