Great views - remote and quiet

Not a walk for shorts. Ciarraioch's directions are good but if you stray from the scarce tracks there is normally a choice between knee-high furze/gorse which fills your boots or if you go beyond the summit, head high bracken laced with brambles and briars which is slow and painful going. The easiest option by far is to retrace your steps to the road. It's worth it for the views from the top and even though you retrace your steps, the views on the way back are different and rewarding.
