Ban and Tharsuinn after cycling up from NE. Old path up from 355843, swampy in places, rises to 600m then series of small cairns up to main ridge avoids the worst of the rough ground and hags.Topographer5723/07/2019

Revisit. From Corriemulzie car park, Creag an Duine, then SB for the trig bolt, then acw circuit of Simms and subs. Lovely sunny breezy day.RHW19/04/2019
Walked from Black Bridge up Strathvaich and then excellent stalkers path onto the actual hill. Stunning views today - Western Isles, all the Assynt and Coigach hills, Ben Hope and Klibreck and south to Ben Rhinnes. Walked out under the light of the moon (and latterly my head torch). 11 hour walk but highly enjoyable.benalder28418/11/2018

With M. Long (16km+) cycle from Black Bridge, then nice stalkers path to ridge. Storm on top, but otherwise weather mostly behaved.douglas_easton16/06/2017
A nice walk from Corriemulzie Lodge, along the track. The river was a bit high, but there's a wooden bridge, quite hard to spot, exactly as marked on the map. This attempt to keep my feet dry was pretty futile however, as the ground over Meall an Daimh Bhig towards the bealach below Craggan a'Chait is very rough and boggy! This is compensated by very easy walking over Carn Ban. It was a bit misty but enough views to make the whole walk very enjoyable. Since my feet were wet anyway, I walked back via the bothy, the track and through the rivers. The views of Seana Braigh and Coire Mor are awesome. Estate notes: the people at this estate are really nice! You can drive along the track from Oykel Bridge (carefully, it's rough), they provide a walkers car park and they reply very nicely if you email to ask about stalking - about which they seem to be very flexible, even though they start in July. The stalkers are very nice too when you meet them.Gill30/07/2016
Overnight backpack from Black bridge taking in An Socach, Bodach Beag, Carn Ban and on return the TuMP of Cnoc na h-Iolare just off the track running along Loch Vaich. Some rain and mist so limited views of the surrounding mountains.RobertP03/07/2016

MC JC. Cycled in from Black Bridge in smirry weather with a cold wind. Took overnight rucksacks and stayed in Gleann Beg Bothy. Had a good fire. Awoke to a beautiful morning with no wind and blue skies. Crossed the river and took a slanting line to drop the sacks off at Loch Sruban Mord. Nice walk to summit. Cycled back in rising rtemperatures. Sunburned in time for evening wedding!Martin6629/04/2006
Biked from Alladale- great views to west; Suilven etc 4 hr 45dmckeith02/11/2004
Day 3 of a Freevater/ Beinn Dearg trek. We walked from Coire Mor bothy to Glenbeg bothy above Toll Lochan, over Carn Ban, and down using an excellent path from Loch Sruban Mora. A logical link to get back to Glenbeg and our supplies finished up being a great day's walk, distance views on a cloudless day, Dunlins and Dotterels on the stony S ridge of the Ma and the crags just above Gleann Beag alive with Ring Ouzels. We could loose access to this wonderful area if a vanity project to turn it into a zoo for wolves is resurrected. Be vigilant!!pwheeler27/05/2004
