Fra Arngeirs log.:

Assuming your starting point is the big round about on road A82 just west of the rail-way station in Fort William. Drive 800 metres (0.5 mi) south on A82, to a round about, and turn left onto "Lundavra Road". Drive this road 4.9 km (3.0 mi) and park on the right hand side of the road just after a house, and just after the road starts to descend.
Start your hike by walking 130 metres back along the road you drove. Turn right through a gate and walk uphill on the left hand side of a fence. At 235 metres cross the fence perpendicular to you direction and find a path running along the ridge. This path slowly fades away above 450 metres, but the route north-east to the summit is quite obvious. The summit is marked by a small pile of stones.
Descend by reversing your ascent route.
