Parked at Kinloch Hourn, at the parking place for the tearoom, walked back east to the bridge across to the big house, and followed the signs to the track up the hill, this was steep and loose, but gained height quickly to the pylon line. The track then follows the pylon line north west, and took the westermost stalking path, which was a delight to walk, up to 600m then found a way up through rocky ground to the 879m top, then the ridge out to the 885 top, initially steep and rocky descent, it might prove difficult routefinding in poor visibility, but there were no real technical problems, the ascent to 885m was easy. Returning to 879m took a route down to the top of the eastern stalking path, care is needed as there are a few rocky drops, but a route can be found to avoid these. Again the stalking path is excellent and the descent on this was no problem, soon back at the tearoom and enjoying a bacon and sausage roll.
