Parked by gate up to mast. Followed track all the way, by the light of a nearly-full moon.PGCE21/02/2024
Well.... If you're lazy enough and bold enough, it's a drive up.vegibagger19/02/2024
Easy up the track to the aerial.Play2End05/02/2023
From the Scott/wilson memorialGonk20/01/2023
From monument car park. Trees all felled. Track to mast gives easiest route.govanah26/11/2022
From car park for the Scott View monument. Up from the road easily through mature trees - though felling in progress, and many have been blown down in Storm Arwen. Track to transmitter would have been easier way up - starts from farm road on W side of hill.Minto18/12/2021
On the way back from various tumps/hump to the North. Up through many windblown trees after Storm Arwen, after parking at the small cp near the Scott View monument.NormanW18/12/2021
Nice end to a short day up Glen Uigbertbarnett12323/09/2021
Weather fair.MountainMac09/04/2021
up from near the lochan.robertphillips15/12/2019
The summit area appears to have been cleared of some of the windblown timber.hill walker23/02/2019
A few stepovers and two duckunders but all isolated logs so no danger of getting stuck. A lot simpler than Balnaboth Craig.alda17/02/2018
Total windblown chaos on top. Takes longer to make sure of bagging the actual high point that it does to climb the hill in the first place.Lindsay M14/01/2018
Horizontal trees are never good!Tony S06/01/2018
P E of lochan and mast. Evidence of mountain bikers. All straightforward till nearly at the top.chrisbien23/12/2017
Car park for Scott - Wilson monument. Open woodland most of the way up but the summit windthrow is indeed a pain - a bit of a labyrinth to negotiate, with some clambering and duckingColin Crawford04/11/2017
Much of the summit is covered with windblown. Otherwise the trees are well spaced with the summit best approached from east of north.JohnW03/08/2017
