The ascent of this rather soggy Corbett can be quickly accomplished from the pass between Glen Lyon and Loch Tay. The uninspiring terrain is rewarded with a fine summit view, both along Glen Lyon and of the Tarmachan ridge.


Pathless hillsides; very tussocky and boggy terrain.

Public Transport

No public transport to the start.


Parking opposite metal hut and stone ruin on Loch Tay - Glen Lyon road at NN582416. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
