|Cycled up to Fiag Lodge, then round of CDB and CDM. Track in good condition, nice ride up. Ground mostly fairly even with short vegetation. See CDM.||Topographer57||26/07/2019|
|2 of 3: From Meall an Fhuarain.||ChrisR||16/04/2018|
|From Ben Hope road. Parked above Mudale. Clockwise route taking in Bheag and Mhor. Had to climb 8' locked gate by farm then boots off to wade across 2 rivers in spate (my old OS map showed 2 bridges but not there anymore. Hoped to follow path/track to lochan but couldn't cross burn so had to go up left side which was rough going. Eventually took off boots again and crossed burn and up to first summit. Crossed to Mhor then direct route back (involving 2 more river crossings. Mostly easy ground though totally sodden.||AndrewFinnimore||18/06/2017|
|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.||nordicstar||22/06/2016|

|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 Peart||21/06/2016|

|From the unfinished Fiag Lodge. Easy going over the moors, other than the continual swarming of clegs.
The road into Fiag Lodge is very good.||fasgadh||27/06/2011|
