This is probably an interesting top to bag most days. Unfortunately the day I did it there was driving rain and near-zero visibility at times. There is parking for a couple of cars opposite the track that marks the start point. A farmer gave me a friendly wave so I think you can assume there are no issues using the farm track.
Went up the track, crossing four gates, then over a barbed wire fence onto an area of turf and heather. Turned west toward the line of trees and then followed a fence to the point where the treeline ended. Turned right (north), crossed a narrow rusty gate and followed a narrow trail along the western end of the tree plantation, an impassable cliff on my left stretching away into the mist.
Eventually you will see a broad wall sloping up towards the cliff, and this marks the point of ascent. The climb here is steep and on the day I did it, very muddy, with a narrow stream accompanying you.
Follow this wall up to access the summit area.
After that the slope eases considerably. I headed first to a cairn a little to the SW and then veered NW across a boggy, but passable area of short heather, before reaching the summit that is marked by a trig pillar and large cairn. Unfortunately the mist was so heavy I could even see the small lough just 150 from the highpoint.
Returned via same route – I accidentally stopped the track on my app before I returned to car, so you can add another 1km or so to the length.
