Short Summary created by wicklore, scapania,  14 May 2011
Follow the road along the west side of Doogort strand until there is open mountain on your left hand side (around F669 090 A). There's a few places to park along this road, or further back at the beach. Once off the road, head for the base of the obvious ridge to the south of the corrie and follow an intermittent path along the heathery, rocky ridge until, after 650m or so of climbing, the summit ridge is reached. The summit trig point is about 200m to the west of the top of the ridge. Either retrace your steps or, for a longer walk, follow the west ridge down to the deserted village at F632 074 B and back along the road to Doogort.
