Climbed on 25/4/11 with Paula. Began at Ardtalnaig - the estate were almost not going to allow us onto the hill as we had a dog with us and there were many lambs. We agreed to use a lead and keep her beside us, which was not a problem as she has never had any interest in sheep. The walk looked as though it should not have taken long, but did - straightforward though. Higher up we saw many hares. Came down fairly sharply (mind the electric fence) and took the road out through Ardtalnaig Glen. A day which saw me finally ticking off the last of my Region 1 Corbetts!

Walked in to Tullichglas, then east to gain summit ridge, south to cairn. Made mistake of heading N over boggy col to find the 'track' shown on the 1:25000 (path on 1:50000) is little more than a boggy stream in places. If climbing on it's own (ie without the Shee) would recommend up and down by the Tullichglass route.
