Logged Descriptions  (logged by 23 users)ByDate of Ascent
Parked at N end of Loch Pityoulish (921141). Followed decent path on north shore of loch then rising traverse south through birch woodland, steep at top through pine trees then heather to top. Good direct route but bracken could be a problem in the summer.Dave McG22/12/2018
Dry walk with Iain and Martin to Creag a' Ghreusaich and Creag Phitiulais before the heavy rain came.Dugswell209/06/2018
Dropped off on roadside, walked up track to Achnahatnich farm and Creag a'Ghreusaich, then disappearing track into sparse woodland. Up heather clad hillside until steepened with juniper and gorse. Rocky top with old boundary post. Continued on along rough ridge until gate in fence to felled forest allowed an ascent up to Creag Phituilais. Steeply down West side to emerge near lochan, difficult drain lines to cross. Steep up Callart Hill to finish then walk back into Aviemore via Old Bridge Innnordicstar23/06/2017
Approach from south (Achnahatnich) on bike. Floundered up from high point of track through the broom jungle. If however you go up through the felled woodland, west of the fence, the ascent is trivial. A very good viewpoint. Cairn near what appears to be the highest point, south of the dyke.fasgadh05/05/2014
From NE, track past Milton to Ghreusaich, then heathery trudge to the HuMP. Broom thicket is bad - best pass R of it. Descended NE, not too bad even in summer. RHW06/07/2013
Ascended through the wood from the north west.JohnW12/04/2013
P at Xrd S of Badaguish. Track to just below Creag a'Ghreusaiche then followed fence and later wall to top (horrible). Top has Cairn. Followed a path which disappeared. Hit track about 1km N of C a'Gchrisbien08/09/2012
