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

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
