I followed the track from Auchnahannet, past Knock of Auchnahannet, as far as 420m, where the track changes direction towards Tom Mor.

At 420m I took to the hillside, through deep heather, following a line of white plastic markers towards Carn na Loine. During the ascent I met another Marilyn-bagger. We had a good blether. He had completed about 1150 Marilyns, including all the Munros, Corbetts and Grahams, but wasn’t registered in the Marilyn Hall of Fame.

Follow the white plastic markers towards the summit:

About 70m-ish below the summit, I come across what I think is a trig point cap. Have seen these on the trig points of a couple of nearby hills.

We reached the summit in just under an hour from setting off.
