Cycled up to Fiag Lodge, then round of CDB and CDM. A warm day, enough wind on summit to blow away the clegs but they were biting in strength lower down. Fine all round view of Sutherland. Descended smooth south ridge, then rougher ground along east bank of loch. Fiag Lodge looked to be a rather futuristic design by well resourced developers, but little sign of any current or recent occupation. Easily back down excellent track to Fiag Bridge despite head wind.Topographer5726/07/2019
3 of 3: From Creag Dhubh Bheag. Continued over Ben Harrald (Dad's name).ChrisR16/04/2018
Clockwise route from Mudale, Good parking above farm. Had to climb 8' locked gate by farm then boots off to cross 2 rivers in spate. (My old OS map showed 2 bridges, but not there anymore!). Hoping to follow path to lochan but couldn't cross burn lower down. Eventually did (boots off again!) and up to Bheag summit then across to Mhor. Direct route back so 2 more river crossings. Mostly easy ground though totally sodden. Just over 6 hrs.AndrewFinnimore18/06/2017
Parked up the Ben Hope road above Mudale nr point 145 on road. Woods now cleared, excellent farmers then stalkers path track goes through here and old pastures as far as the top spur at 330m just NNE of summit GR46418 34785. Easy to summit from here. Cut a direct line then to neighbouring Beag (some care on SW slopes of the Mor) before descending NE through some slow ground to reach the bottoms of Stratha Duibh. Interesting moraine piles, contoured then climbed up NE further on Meall na Tanga before crossing 1 km above waterfall (easy going) and rejoining track to start point. Really nice route, took just under 6 hrs.nordicstar22/06/2016
Coming in from the north east on the old track was a good route. Pretty easy across to the Beag, then a long walk out.jenx22/06/2016
Coincidentally climbed the Creag Dhubh's by a similar route to nordicstar and jenx, the day before. The only variation was that, on the return, I cut over the bealach between Creag Dhubh Mhor and Meall na Teanga to reach the end of the approach track.Chris Peart21/06/2016
Parked on road by lane to Fiag Lodge. Very good surface, but as I'm a walker, not a cyclist, soon left bike and walked all 6 miles. Forgot map case in car in all the excitement, so these two hills were the first that I have climbed for some time without a map, entitrely from memory! Luckily the day was clear and the moor quite dry. Most northerly unclimbed Marilyn. Very fancy barn conversion at the Lodge. No deer fences as yet, so that they will come up and do their business on the patio!arranc07/07/2013
