Second hill of the two from the old station. Great sunset behind Mull. Not too rough or boggy between the two.jenx05/01/2016
With Jenx, from holiday park and old station to South. Beinn Churalain and Beinn Donn ACW. Good spur up to pt 430, after Churalain a drop to the beck between at 140m then climb back up Donn passing the old shepherds house and fank. Very wet in places, a good walk and better than taking the two separately. Easy drop back down direct to old railway line and car.nordicstar05/01/2016

Started from cemetery. Very friendly crofter at Appin, he is a hillbagger and aware of Marilyns. Key to access to the hill is gate at NM94121 46703. Waymarkers part of way put in by crofter's f. in law. Beware of false summit syndrome.Martin R25/04/2012

DS MH DC. Lightning on descentMartin6602/01/2012
Climbed during a wet & wild New Year week in Appin. This one was quite literally out of the back of the house we had rented for the week. Most of the party were still sheltering from the worst of the gales, but Martin66, Shaky, MarkH & I set off up the open S slopes of the hill gaining the summit easily enough. Our original plan had been to walk round the head of Gleann na h-Iola & round to Beinn Churalain. Instead, Martin66 decided on a direct route SE off Beinn Donn persuading everyone else that it would be quicker, the snag with this cunning plan being the elevated level of An Iola. At the river a debate started as to just how feasible it was to wade it & how wet we were going to get when a spectacular thunderstorm swept up the glen. No-one fancied being zapped to start the year, so argument thus settled, we retreated down the glen by the river back to the old railway & back to the house.NotReallyABagger02/01/2012
Approach from Sallachan via the Bealach. Path good through forest. Long bumpy ridge towards a wonderful view. Return through Glen Stockdale with its limestone goodiesfasgadh13/02/2010

Under railway bridge to Achnacone House. By stream and up over sheep pastures and wet swampy lank grass. Buggy tracks to open moor. Strenuous section on heather, 2 or 3 ascents - hands and knees stuff - with swampy descents on the other side. Green run to skyline and top was to the left. 11.10.arranc06/09/2004
