The Map below shows the route from the Ben Challum car park next to the A82 road. Follow the West Highland Way down and across a wooden bridge, pass Kirkton Farm, pass a scenic cemetery with two trees, cross over the railway line via a level crossing, follow a fence up onto the mountains south summit, then cross over to the north summit. Try and cross at the level crossing, not the railway bridge, as the bridge route is tougher with no trail to follow. Return the same way.

Make sure and take an Ordnance Survey Map and Compass on these hikes, and know how to use them, as in cloud, these mountains can be deadly. In Winter, make sure you have Crampons and an Ice Axe, and know how to use them.
