This hill provides an easy ascent from Daless farm near Drynachan. Initially a landrover track is followed and then once at around 350m you can simply follow heathery slopes up to the first top - the east top which is marked by a trig point. From here it is due west whereby you lose and gain little in height. The terrain between the two tops is that of heather, grass and peat hags. The summit is marked by another trig point. A fairly easy route that should take no more than 4hrs for all fitness levels. Parking available at Daless, but be warned this place is very anti-walker.
