Parked at the Craggie track/Loch Craggie. Woods felled, followed tracks round Meall an Lochan. New track drops over a shiny metal bridge to the end of An Tulachan ridge. Lots of AV tracks, a little soggy up the ridge to meet the deer fence. Through the gate and then followed the AV track down and up into the cloudy summit. Returned with slight variation off An Tulachan to pick up the older track back to car.N.Morters23/11/2019
4 of 7: From Meall a Bhuirich.ChrisR26/05/2018
Nice warm evening. Per Nordicstar, but cycled from A837 to 313041 in deference to lockable barriers. If you get to the end of the main forestry track, you have gone too far. The wet and grassy track that starts at 31351 04129 goes all the way to the summit, where the ground and terrain are smooth enough for a cricket field.Topographer5702/09/2017
Parked at small quarry at Nc313041. Really good forest roads to that point. Quick early evening ascent with Liz. Great views particularly westwards.Campbell Singer30/04/2017
Jim F's description was very useful and made for a good route if a little wet. Nice views.jenx23/07/2016
From tthe NE and A837 as described by Jim F. No long walk in from Duag bridge. Our shorter line took just 2.25 hrs there and back (sorry Michael 😉). The CP is on rhe unlocked forestry road at GR31461 04102. Down to a bridge at GR31426 03979. A short rough section through felled forest using a newish track to gain the old quad track that can be followed to near the summit of the Marilyn. Bit wet in places but fast. For accuracy if needed the deer fence gate that the track uses is at GR30305 03957.nordicstar23/07/2016
From Duag Bridge - good path up the Rappach Water once through the new forest plantation - boggy plod thereafter.Chris Peart15/06/2016
Parked on the A837 at the start of the forest road, went over 9308 Meall an Lochain, to the deer fence gate at NC303039. There was a grassy/muddy vehicle track wihich didn't look to be going the right way but from the summit it was easily followed to the forest road at NC313041 where you can park.Jim.Fothergill24/04/2016
Bagged with Tricky Speirs, Alex Cameron and Richard Tibbetts with Martin Richardson finally catching us up when we were half way back to the car. Great views from the top.Dugswell208/06/2014
Boggy from Duag bridge.Martin R08/06/2014
Exceptional views rewarded all effort upon reaching the top.Alex C08/06/2014
Extended plod from Duag Bridge in mist and light drizzle.jimbloomer09/05/2014
one of the very best viewpoints for a panorama of the Assynt hills. Also my most remote and most northerly trig pillar top art plaster cast!!vegibagger26/06/2013
Parked at Duag Bridge and followed fair path to Rappaig. Tedious plod to summit from there. Almost 5 hours for the round trip. Creag Loisgte to follow from the same parking spot.mae20/05/2013
Started at NC 32884 05161 and walked along the forest tracks to 31176 04315. Picked my way through the trees in a WSW direction and when onto open ground headed for the gate in the fence at 30311 03943. The easiest way over the rough ground was to follow the line of the vehicle tracks over the shoulder of An Tulachan and on to the summit. Returned by the same route. Not a cloud in the sky, frozen ground, a sprinkling of snow on top, and stunning views.martin_hall25/02/2013
From Cnoc Damh which involved crossing Rappach Water. Camped on northwest slopes.Alan Moore02/06/2011
Revisit date. First date not recorded. knoll to E higher than trig base. from NE, see trig RHW29/05/2011
Parked at roadside near Lubcroy. On road to a gate, on a faint path by stream to a new deer fence. Clambered over - why don't they spend an extra tenner on a stile to avoid the damage that will inevitably occur? Bridge over stream on map had gone. Walked across on stone getting mildly wet feet. On the babk past woodland steeply uphill over dry gentle moor. Steady progress to a large bealach to cross before the final ridge. 700' climb over more than a mile. At the top, white stones appeared showing the way a buggy should follow. To the trig 7932 at 12.00. 2 solitary deer. Lookout cairn 300m away was lower but had better views. Quiet. 6 hrs. to car.arranc31/05/2009
From The Schoolhouse, Duag Bridge via Rapping. Everywhere frozen solid. Grand views over Inverpoly.Eddie18/02/2007
