Simple to reach from its sister summit.

This is usually bagged via the main Carron summit, from where it will take you approximately 15 minutes to walk along a good track. Unfortunately the top is crowned by some horrible masts and a building. The actual highpoint is a mound of heather about 50m to the NW just off the track.
