From Rannoch Station - track SW then thru' forest ( a battle) and over moor (peat hags and bogs). According to hill-bagging.co.uk there is an old ATV up the burn at NN397569. I came across an ATV once on the ridge.

Fabulous view point on such a clear day. Repeat visit to this Vanessa by way of a linear walk from Kingshouse to Rannoch Station.

From Rannoch Station, forest track to SW end of forest then slog up thru heather. Walk back along tops much nicer - with bogs semi frozen.

Quite a slog to get to it but well worth it for the view on a fine day. Cycled up from Glencoe, parked the bike at Black Corries Lodge and finished on foot via Meall a Phuill and Stob nan Losgann. Only one of the replaced screws (how considerate!) in fasgadh's photo still remains.

Glorious weather,fantastic views! Dry conditions a big advantage for crossing the moor, even by the road in from Kingshouse. Sadly the lowlife scumbag with an allen key had recently visited, with the screws kindly replaced. Little damage visible to the concrete sleeve, so it was a recent attack. The shit is now targetting smaller hills. Big views all around Rannoch Moor.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 20th May 1959 costing 9.3s.1d. This triangulation pillar was a 'distomat' observed station and was computed as tertiary triangulation station NN44/2 in 1959. The distomat stations were only fixed by observing distances and not angles, unlike other stations that were fixed by angle and distance methods. The flush bracket was levelled for height also in 1959. Last maintained by the OS in July 1982. SITE VISIT: Parked at Rannoch Station. Followed estate track west to roughly NN398570, up through woods then via open moor to aim for bealach, then along county boundary to summit. Vanessa in good condition. Spider centre open. Flush bracket faces southwest, ~233. Vented through SW and SE sight holes. Spectacular 360 panorama over a wilderness to a mountainous skyline. This really is in the middle of nowhere, good weather conditions are essential to fully appreciate the surroundings.
