If you are approaching from the west (road south of Knockanuha) please do not park on the corner at W04199 68795 E This grid reference in the text is shown as point E on the Detail Map above'>W04199 68795 E E (junction of road and track), the farmer(who likes walkers) has told me that people park there and delivery trucks can't get up the road and on occasion he's had to follow walkers up the mountain to get the keys to move their car: please park in the farm yard of the first little cottage.
With the farmers permission, there is a good farm track most of the way to the top from the upper (bigger) farmhouse which would make for an easier start than the track at W04199 68795 E This grid reference in the text is shown as point E on the Detail Map above'>W04199 68795 E E.
