A popular and - given its dramatic outline - reasonably straightforward Corbett with superb views over the other isolated monoliths of Assynt and Coigach including Stac Pollaidh and Suilven.
Excellent stalkers path for the approach. There is a wetter section, and a short boulderfield on the approach to the summit. Some pathless terrain.
Limited bus to start.
Layby on A835 just north of the Knockan Crag visitor centre.
