8The start of this walk was from inveruglas, a car park is available at the visitor centre just past the power station on the opposite side of the road. Then walk out onto the road and head back past the power station if you continue on you come to a metal gate at the start of a private track NN31825 09248, quite a walk along this road and you eventually come into view of the loch sloy dam wall

I managed to find the path at NN295103 around about the fourth pylon from the dam wall this is a steep slope up onto the southwest ridge a decent clear path then exists all the way to the summit cairn you can climb up from the dam wall itself but a group of people who I spoke to came up that way wished they hadn’t. Another route also exists from ardlui start NN316155 it was a nice warm clear day which is always best with excellent views

Three tops exist on this munro a trig pillar and a stone cairn can been seen in the distance
Easy walk between both true summit is NN295124
