Improved Route Using the hard won experience of others and new forest roads we found a relatively easy way to visit the two summits. A previous comment had talked about " It was like a grassy swamp full of hidden stinking pools of water and head high reeds not to mention a myriad of hidden tree stumps" so we were primed for difficulty but the newish forest road makes for an easy enough route. Flat Bogland Tops. Bleantasour has an odd set of three cairns, which look suspiciously like they were created, not necessarily recently, by demolishing a megalithic tomb. Other reports have mentioned a milk churn on the top and indeed we found some remains.
Summary An easy enough route over wild land with few visitors.
