  Dumyat trail head at Blairlogie.
  Start of uphill path to Dumyat.
  Off-path section towards Dumyat.


From the round-about where road A91 turns east, north-east of Stirling, drive 1.2 km (0.75 mi) east on A91 to where it's signed for parking on the left hand side of the road. Park here.

Start your walk by crossing the gate at the far end of the car park and then turn left onto a wide path. Follow this path 180 metres, to a gate, and turn right and walk up along a fence. Follow this path up to 175m, approximately 90 metres after you've crossed a gully. Instead of following the path 90° right continue straight ahead on a vague path, towards a wooden gate. Cross the gate and continue straight ahead up to the ridge. At the ridge turn right and follow the well defined path 1.2 km east to the summit, which is marked by a large cairn.

Descend by reversing your ascent route.

Fine hike together with Erling and Pål, on a grey and slightly windy day. I had logged the wrong summit as a way-point on my GPS so we ended up on a wrong top 400 metres south-west of the summit. Hence a de-tour to get to the busy summit.

Back at our rented house in Stirling Erling and I spent the next four hours cooking a nice dinner to the whole group of eight.
