Parked at church and left donation in honesty box, set off up road and came to bridge over old railway, you have to descend onto the old railway then follow the zig zagz up onto the higher track, then turn left through a gate and continue along the upper railtrack. Do not take a track off to the right, like I did, but continue till near a bridge over the railway and turn left through a gate to cross the railway on the bridge seen earlier. Then its just follow the road to the highpoint, thanks to Roundfella for the company, and follow up an obvious grassy ramp past the first cairn and beyond a slight drop to the summit. Everything above about 600m was in clag so no photos, Roundfella went on to do Meall an t-Seallaidh, which I had done on a Midweek Mountaineering Club New Years meet in 2009, while I headed back to the car.
