We parked in a layby on the A891just south of the Hotel and walked through the hotel grounds to join the pat/track. There are good signs through the forest and the path is excellent until exiting the forest, which has now been cut down. The path is then boggy in places up to the cairn, which marks the start of the final climb. The summit ridge takes longer than expected but the views were fantastic.
