Cycled from Butterstone Hall to track east of Riemore Lodge, then 6th/6 tumps in line from Riemore Hill to Meall Dubh. From Loisgte col, a green strip heading NW up to the ridge wall offers some relief from the long heather. Descended SE to track to back to Riemore.Topographer5715/08/2019
After Blackcraig Hill. Started from Kirkmichael, along the Cateran Trail and up past Loch Charles.Rod M16/09/2018
Solo. From Ballintuim in Strathardle. There is a house there that still has a notice on it indicating that it is a telegraph office. Parked on grass verge of the track going S from there. Along the track to reach the boat house on Loch Charles. There is a high deer fence here which I climbed over as the gate is difficult to open. I walked eastwards to reach a wall which I followed roughly on a narrow path through vegetation to reach the cairn at the summit of Meall Dubh. I continued to Creag nam Mial.pwbellarby26/05/2018
