From Tyndrum, followed West Highland Way then once over the railway bridge joined grassy path directly to the summit. The path is indistinct in places, one or two avoidable boggy sections midway but mostly very dry underfoot. Fine views from the summit.david23020106/05/2019

Round of Odhar, Chaorach and Cam Chreag. Climbed directly from the roadside. Very steep climbs up both Odhar and Chaorach. Hot day (24c), great visibility.Roblex24/07/2017
A glorious day's bagging of 3 Corbetts from Tyndrum. Clear views, sunny and a cool breeze. Beinn Odhar is easily the best of the 3 hills, a fine pointy cone, but Beinn Chaorach and Cam Chreag are also very fine. Perfect easy going, even on the steep ups and downs. I went out to the end of the Cam Chreag ridge (just in case of future resurveys), and this gives good views along Glen Lochay. I wouldn't recommend the direct descent from the 859m bealach. It's fine down to the fence, but then it's purgatorial going through the regenerating woodland, for which read lots of hidden holes containing dead saplings, misguidedly planted in a bog. It's only short though, and the going gets better once you find the ATV track. Back to Tyndrum on the West Highland way. Overall, an excellent walk. One of the few Corbett rounds where there is no stalking.Gill22/09/2016
