There was only one other report for this walk so took the same route, starting from near Bengairn Loch. The track leads past Foresthill and then ends at a gate. From here on its it's a faintish path through long grassy ground with the odd path / sheep trail leading up towards the summit. On our way down we stuck to a more defined path which would lead to a gate and a track to Kirkmirran and according to the map has a parking area. This is the route i would recommend for this walk. We had to leave the path just before thye gate to make our way back over the swamp to pick the track up back to the car.
