Start at car park at head of Glen Ogle (NN558 284). Pass through gate at E end of car park & head up the Land Rover track to the phone mast, then ESE to the bealach between Meall Buidhe & Beinn Leabhainn. From here more or less SE to the summit.
The land rover track is a switchback that takes you quite easily to the phone mast, the slopes after this point are gentle - route time - around 11/2 hours to the top & 1 hour to descend by the same route.
There are 3 cairns at the summit, all quite small. The summit cairn is the one standing on its own.
There is a small gorge immediately to the N of the phone mast knoll, this is best avoided by passing round it to the N
