Started in Carsaig and walked along the base of the cliffs via the nuns cave before heading up to the summit. A very steep ascent,but gorgeous views, if a little hazy.Nicky C24/03/2020
From just above Carsaig, parking at the track to Cnoc aBhràghad, ATV track goes beyond. Took a direct line to summit plateau, and its rocky rampart. Visited several cairns, the highest appears to be on the rampart, the bigger cairn on the scraped rock area is lower. Followed old fence posts to Nuns Pass and onto Creachan Mor.N.Morters15/03/2020
Parked above Feorlin and followed old track down to Feorlin. Then along shore and up Nun's Pass to Creachan Mor. Back via Beinn Chreagach.PGCE22/02/2020
Round of Creagach and Creachan Mor from Carsaig road HP.Topographer5729/09/2019
Parked at end of rough quad track at 532229. A dreich afternoon following path to 530219 then directly west to the summit. Wandered around all high points then cloud cleared briefly and it stopped raining. With CM.bolton28/08/2018
From sheep dip track at 180m. With PM.CJM28/08/2018
Out from high point on road, wandered around a lot, back by path. Didnât realise should have done Creachan Mor at same time! Sunny, windy, warm. Rounsfell10/08/2018
From 532229 then on to Creachan Mor.NormanW13/07/2018
Left car in one of several gaps behind passing places at around NM533226. With Mike. Walked along road to shore line and then proceeded along shoreline path to Carsaig Arches (well worth visiting). From the first arch we made a rising traverse north eastwards to around NM498189 where there is an obvious weakness in the cliffs to the right of a small pinnacle in a shallow gully. By walking into the shallow gully and scrambling up moist slabs exit can be made onto a ledge which deposits you on steep grassy slopes above the cliffs between lochans at NM499190 and NM498190. Ascended to Creachan Mor. Traversed across sometimes soft and tussocky ground directly to Beinn Chreagach and then returned via Cnoc a Bhragad to the road and the starting point.raffemeister16/04/2016
Parked opposite a track, which took me half way up. Great views. The road to corsair was something else. Not for the faint hearted if you fancy going all the way down.tallblond03/06/2015
Out here today with Jim F when the only ones silly enough to be about are baggers.Alex C31/05/2015
From Carsaig: see Cnocan Buidhe. Descended ENE, easy crossing of burn below gorge, NW of Feorlin Cott then up to road. And so back to Fionnphoirt for dinner and pub.RHW31/05/2015
From road summit with SG & PM.Smudge31/05/2015
With Jenx, parked on minor road near to track at NM532229, room for one car at 200m. At end of rough track ATV continues up to @ 270m, strike up hill to summit over several tops. Continued on to Creachan Mor via Cnocan Buidhe. Low point is soft but passable, some deep pools to avoid. Both M's have good craggy features. Back along cliffs to Nun's Pass, easy steep descent to coast path followed with interest to Carsaig, where cut across fields to raod then followed to car.nordicstar27/04/2015
Re-visit on the way to Creachan Mor. Small cairn on the rock at revised GR.richtea504011/07/2014
Parked at Cnoc a Bhraghad along track that gradually disappeared then delightful trek along cliff top with eagles overhead and deer in the distance to Creachan Mor then back via Creagach.AndrewFinnimore17/06/2014

Damp, some wind, good views, mild.iangalbraith09/09/2012
Started at NM53259 23119 because there is some limited parking. Choice of ways up with a number of dead deer. Visited all the cairns to be sure. The picture is of the biggest cairn, which is not the summit, I know.Martin R20/04/2012

MC JC From Carsaig.Martin6630/12/2008
On final day of New Year week in Tobermory. With Martin66, JC & Shaky from Carsaig, followed the coastal path along to the Carsaig Arches. Then back E to the first major burn & followed that up steeply through the cliffs using the natural line of weakness. Wandered over to the summit of Creachan Mor & then back along the top of the cliffs picking up the path. Bagged Beinn Chreagach with Shaky & then continued NE to the road just SE of Cnoc a'Bhraghad. If you want to see the Arches & bag the Marilyns too, this is the way to do it: it's not at all obvious how to descend to the Arches from above.NotReallyABagger05/01/2007
from C Mor. To a large lochan to get bearings and pick up coastal path back to Nun's Pass. Up into mist on compass, which didn't seem to be going uphill. Bore to left and gained height. A lot of time from one point to another eventually over a large single boulder to top at 16.15. As compass was unreliable - ? magnetic problems - using wind as guide downhill by a straight stream that I thought was going due east. Eventually mist lifted enough to see coast and confirm that I was going south! Contoured round for a mile or so using deer paths through 8' high bracken. Had gone downm too far and was now back on the cliff path. Another mile with heavy hoof prints on bracken paths. Fence posts came into view which I followed until under the mist. Very gingerly down a steep bramble, bracken scree slope to 2 side streams down muddy slopes into trees and policies. Both feet wet crossing this morning's 3 streams, now very swollen, to car. 8 1/2 hrs. Horrendous.arranc31/08/2006
