Ben Buie and Creach Beinn from the stone circle parking. This completes all the Marilyn's in the Highlands; just 6 in the Borders remain.PGCE24/02/2020
From the SE, starting at 661261 then up above the SW bank of Allt nam Faoilean Glaise to about 300m then right across stream onto east ridge, which gets steeper but there are no compulsory scree or scrambling.Topographer5721/09/2019
A glorious day for this walk. Easy path up the glen from the stone circle car park to a flat boggy section almost at the watershed, then up a steep, rough ramp on the N side of the wide coire to nicer grass and scree going onto the main ridge. Fine views. Down NW steeply to the plateau below, then easy enough walking steeply down to the head of the loch. Sadly, plans for Ben Buie were curtailed by illness.Gill20/09/2019
