From Aviemore via the Burma Road with GFE: trail running - 26km loop including Gael-charn Mor, Gael-charn Beag, Garbh-mheall Mor (both tops) and Carn Sleamhuinn.Fionalevey02/08/2019
From Lynwilg, along the An Gleannan track before heading up minor trails to Creag na h-lolaire. From here followed a fence line to Carn Deag Mor and Geal-charn Beag. Relatively easy trek over to Real-charn Mor, before heading back down the main path to rejoin the An Gleannan track. A smaller path heading down to Ballinluig was next taken, leaving it half way along to bag Creag Ghleannain before crossing the Allt Dubh to get back onto the main track back to Llynwilg.summitter29/06/2019

Dropped at Lynwilg, walked track to col below Graham Geal Carn Mor. Fourth time up here now. Out easily on track to Geal Carn Beag, with fine views to Carn Mor. Then fence line to Carn Dearg Mor, continued over 5H to Creah na h-Iolaire and then roughly to Craigellachie and fine path back down to A9 and back of Macdonald Hotel complex.nordicstar25/06/2017
Going well after our walk up Geal-charn Mor, so we went up this as well; any tracks we found in the boggy ground before the S breast were helpful, but were not hillbaggers' (perhaps grouse baggers'). We found a wetter way back to the track, then used the nice path to Ballinuig. Though the christian centre to return to our car- I think we should have taken the track high above its grounds but prayed for deliverance (success) and forgiveness of our trespasses (we must wait to find out, I suppose).
