Start at the small parking space on the A826 Aberfeldy to Crieff road NN898 435. Go N about 30m & cross a gate to go down to the Cochill burn through waist high reeds. Cross the burn at a ford (a bridge is marked but does not exist) next to the deer fence & head NW to General Wades military road. follow the track through reeds & high heather which gradually diminish for 300m then head SSW directly for summit. Terrain gradually improves for walking as vegetation shortens & ground becomes firmer.
Time to summit - 1hr 10min, descent by same route 50 min.

The ford is a gravel bed extending almost the width of the burn & was easily crossed during moderate water flow - spate conditions may make this more difficult.
Map - OS Explorer 379, Dunkeld Aberfeldy & Glenalmond.
This route goes over easier ground than that encountered if starting further S on the A826
