Descent to Badaguish pretty unpleasantly wet underfoot until you reach the proper forestry paths. Running the ridgeline inc Meall a' Bhuachaille, Creagan Gorm, Creag a' Chaillich and Craiggowrie. With GFE.Fionalevey04/08/2019
10.8 mile walk from visitors centre, along forest track up to Ryvoan Bothy then very good path up onto Meall a'Bhuachaille then along ridge to Creagan Gorm, Creag a' Chailleach and Craigowrie, desending via boggy eroded path back to forest then along forest lanes back to the car. Changeable weather sunny/cloudy with showers but very windy, the big Cairngorms kept going in and out of cloud/showers, busy on Meall a' Bhuachaille, but not so busy on the rest of the ridge, great circular with great views.DanTrig18/06/2019
From the visitor centre. Pretty decent path to Meall a' Bhuachaille, then over more muddy ground to Creagan Gorm, Creag a' Chaillich, and Craiggowrie; returning through The Queen's Forest. Takes about 3.5 hrs in total.summitter28/12/2018

With Ali. Started at Glenmore Lodge and walked through Queens Forest. Ascended Craiggowrie from W and carried on to saddle beneath Meall a'Bhuachaille before descending.paddyirish10/02/2006
Cairngorm Club bus meet. I shared the driving of a minibus with Ken Thomson. The party ascended Meall a' Bhuachaille from the north, although there were some variations. We left minibus somewhat east of Torehill Cottage. We walked along road past cottage and turned left on to track going south. This was followed - there was some dispute about navigation. The track became a path and then petered out so we continued up the hillside to the summit of Meall a' Bhuachaille. We proceeded along the ridge west and north west over Creagan Gorm (732m), Creag a' Chaillich (711m) and Craiggowrie (687m). We descended NE, crossed the Craiggowrie Burn, followed the side of a wood and then a track back to the road about 1 1/2 km from Torehill Cottage. Clear with excellent views of snow-covered peaks.pwbellarby13/11/2005
