This twin-summited Corbett is a good viewpoint, rising above a little visited but very attractive corner of the Highlands. The approach leads through some fine woodland and much of the ascent uses superb stalkers' paths.


Good approach track, then stalkers' paths on the open hill. Short pathless section to summit; alternative return route is much rougher over boulders.

Public Transport

None to start.


Parking near Glencalvie Lodge. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
