From the marked parking by the bridge over the Strathrory River. Track to the quarry, up left of quarry then a faint path appears and disappears all the way along the ridge. Loop of 4 hills, then straight back to quarry track from Cnoc an t-Sithean Mor through the first saddle - a bit rough at first but good going when out of the steep valley.Tisteln29/06/2023
From Tharsuinn over peat hags. On to Cnoc an t-Sithean Mor over more of them.sclater17/04/2023
After Cnoc an-t Sidnei. Mor. Went on to the cairn. There’s are wind farm now to the north west , maybe a good access route.Adrian12/05/2022
Bike to turbine 5, across bogs to BT then on to here, straight down following peat gullies. Dry and better than the top of the hags. Very windy but dry and good viewsiangalbraith21/09/2020
4 of 10: From Cnoc an t-Sidhein Mor.ChrisR07/06/2019
Large dirt parking area (NH 6599 7765). Excellent track to disused quarry, then to Torr Leathann and Beinn Tharsuinn and across to here over snow-covered ground. Took a direct line back to NH 6295 7945 to pick up the track for return.jonglew07/04/2018

Used wind farm road to gain height in drizzle then followed trench system to north top and on to coll before easier ascent of Graham. Descended on an angled descent on bearing to wind farm and back to car.SS11/06/2016
Cycled up to wind farm Turbine 9. Departed over bog from T5, hit the big cairn then navigated to OS 692m spot and then run all over the place deciding that the last point was higher. Found argo track on the return that avoided a few peat haggs back to T1. Ugh, the things we do for a tick.Eddie03/04/2014
Not a lot to redeem this hill, if it hadnt been a twin summit would not have bothered. Bit like a less peaty version of Kinder Scout with nasty views of wind power station.Martin R27/10/2013
Solo run. From Baldoon, with surrounding tops and twin summits.amswanston02/03/2013
