High heather makes for difficult ascent
Short Summary created by jackill  18 Jul 2014
Start at R 79274 64735 starA (Point A) at forest entrance, room here for 5-6 cars, follow the forest track uphill ignoring the first left, this leads to an abandoned farmhouse. Continue on the track to a dead end, just before the track ends take a sharp left up a rough forest ride for about 100mts onto open hill side and thigh deep heathery slopes.

Look for an old deep dyke at the forest edge R78983 64375 starB this leads uphill to the right from here to within 150mtrs of the top, then cross into the heather to the summit area. The top of Bleanbeg is heather covered with a few small trees and great views all around with Boolatin and Keeper Hill the most dominant features to be seen. To the west of the top there are turf cuttings so there might be an easier alternative to this route, return by the upward route to the forest track .
