Its a fairly easy mountain walk, with great views all around. There are various routes you can follow but there is easy access from A5.

a beautiful walk up to an absolutely amazing mountain. Suitable for all abilities, you can make the walk as easy or hard as you wish. The lakes and wildlife are incredible.

I live at the foot of this mountain. I really cannot remember how many times I have been to the top in the last 45 or so years, but it would be at least once a year! Familiarity can sometimes breed contempt but not in...More
