An interesting ascent starting at the road end in Glen Lochay, this gives the chance to view the more noteworthy northern side of the mountain but involves a nine kilometre walk / cycle up the glen to the foot of the pathless eastern ridge.

On a clear day as this is a central munro gives excellent view
