Chose a route beyond highest fence as suggested and aimed just in front of top craigs. Bit boggy and there was a recent landslip to be navigated round lower down. But it is fairly easy to avoid the crags and near the top a footpath becomes obvious and the way to the top is just to follow it.
Great views all around, especially over to Cruach Ardain, and from here it is very straight forward and a good path all the way.
Met two guys from Paisley who came up the Crianlarich side and had started walking the same time as me.
Got very dull while we were at the top and after a blether, started back as I was getting cold.
Back down at the bealach there is a faint path going down the slope that follows the side of a burn lower down. Plenty of crags to avoid in this area so wouldn't choose to come up this way.
Eventually got down to the track after losing the 'path', then a walk back along the farm track to the bridge and car park accompanied by a little drizzle.

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
