Beinn Stacath from Loch Voil Hostel via good path up Bealach Driseach and over Ceann na Baintighearna. Descended by forest tracks from Coire Odhar.davidpettit8422/04/2019
Plenty of parking 500m north of Ballimore, from which a track leads SW. Before reaching a deer gate a normal gate can be scaled, enabling a pretty straightforward climb to the Creag Mhor ridge. There a couple of false tops before the actual summit s reached, then onwards to Creag an Fhiog. Superb views up and down Loch Voil make up for the boggy Bealach Driseach, from where the ascent to Ceann na Baintighearna takes you to drier ground. Turning south to Beinn Stachach (or whatever you choose to call it) takes you alongside a couple of derelict fences (why don't landowners remove these once defunct?) to a small stone cairn (which I rebuilt) just to the east of the trig. Its all down hill from here, taking in the East top before reaching the bridge over the Allt Fathan Glinne, and an ever expanding track back to the start. Met Pete R back at the car - always nice to say hello to a fellow bagger!summitter30/03/2019
