Climbed the hill by route described in guide book,i.e.from Lochgoilhead car-park,via Coilessan Glen way-marked track,and through fire-break on right to open slopes and,ultimately, the top.Returned via N.W. slopes & The Steeple.Hampered by very strong,cold N.W. wind.

Ascent took us 2h 30m.(both of us 50 somethings!!).An easy walk,with fantastic views,especially south to sea-lochs & Firth of Clyde.

However, I do not recommend return via The Steeple,as it is over tussocky ground,dotted with water courses,long grass & heather.It took us 2h30m to return & was tedious.

Apart from this ,a great day on the hills,and we didn't see a soul!
