MMC walk starting with Kevin, but continuing on own over the 2 Grahams folllowing the same route as kdbennett. Sunny, windy and essentially dry day. 18k and 6 hoursalexmaclennan19/07/2020
Circuit from Tynreoch, following pwbellarby's route over Mor Bheinn North Top, Mor Bheinn and Ben Halton. The hottest day of the year so far: I propped myself against a boulder on the summit of Ben Halton and watched white cirrus clouds swirl mesmerically against a deep blue sky.Nick Down130/05/2020

Set off from Church CP in Glen Artney on a Sim,G,Sim,G,Sim ACW circuit. Some fine situations. Quite hard work at times ascending through heather - new deer fence!?ger15/05/2018
From Glen Artney church, on way to Mor Bheinn.Grinner18/02/2018

Two Graham day, new light snow on high ground. Much of the way hard goingbertbarnett12322/01/2017
From Dalchruin in Glen Artney. Ben Halton and Mor Bheinn. A bit of a plod through the long grass at the start but good going on the track and pathless over the fairly rough ground of the two tops. No obvious line from the end of the track just pick what looks best, wade through more long grass and occasional bracken. On return the middle fence is a good guide to the line to contour Ben Halton.dickscroop01/08/2016
6 of 6: From Mor Bheinn.ChrisR23/07/2016
Solo from Tynreoch on loggers track to NN 70563 21718 after which a bit of a slog up side of the burn to 604m spot. The 2 Mor Bheinn peaks first then across here before dropping back to loggers track and return to Tynreoch. A fine last day out on the 2016 Trig Baggers Weekend.jonglew17/04/2016
Another great top.jenx16/04/2016
Curcuit of the two Grahams and tops from Dalchruin w Jenx. 5hrs in a ckear bright day with biting north wind. New deer fences but apart from one climb all have stiles.nordicstar16/04/2016
Up from Dalchruin. Area plagued with deer fences. Presumably to keep the beggars off the newly planted trees.ngthack07/04/2016
Solo. Circular walk starting at NN739230 where it is possible to park at the start of a footpath along the trackbed of the former railway line, which is signposted to St Fillans and Kindrochet. Followed the signposted route to beyond Kindrocket where I turned SW on a track used by others to approach Mòr Bheinn. From this track ascended to summit of Mòr Bheinn North Top and then Mòr Bheinn. From the summit of Mòr Bheinn I went down to the col with Ben Halton where I climbed over a newish fence not high and the only fence met so far. Continued to the summit of Ben Halton. Descended ESE and to the S of crags to meet track going past Tomanour. Stile over a deer fence and gate at another. Hence to minor road and starting point. Beautiful day, weatherwise.pwbellarby20/03/2016
