This route builds on a Simon3 route (trk 1545) which starts further east.
Parking at the end of this minor road is not encouraged as the residents of the Lodge value their privacy. After talking for a while however, we were kindly given permission to drive along the private road which heads directly towards the hill. We followed this road until I felt I could no longer be guaranteed of actually ever getting the car back out - it is rough, deeply pitted and puddled and very soft on the verges - turning, if you continue as far as we did, will be difficult...
This parking place reduces the hill to a reasonably straightforward up and down, though the terrain is tough enough - we followed the Simon3 advice of finding and following the fence running in the direction of the summit, circled the coum for variety and retraced our steps back down
Stats got a bit garbled - The walk took exactly 5 hours

Note: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 3h 25m + time stopped for breaks
Note: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
