|Creag Liath from Glenballoch, initially following a reasonable path alongside the plantation to the SE, then heather and snow. Continued northwardsish along ridge then down to a bridge across the Allt Fionndrigh and back along the parallel track. As there was still time in the day and the sun was out we followed a muddy ATV track up to nearly the top of Creag nan Abhag, then doubled back to Clac a' Chaise. Decided to head eastwards from here, which was fine until we had to cross an in-spate Allt a' Chaorainn. We wandered up and down to find a crossing point, eventually taking our chances across some reasonably lined rocks, finding relief on the east bank and the track back to the Glen Road car park.||summitter||18/01/2020|
|Explored several contenders for the top. Then down to bridge and car. A good circuit. With B and R.||jenx||03/11/2019|
|Northern summit looks lower but is higher.||alda||03/11/2019|
|On way down from Creag na h-Iolaire. More than one candidate for the highest point. Down to the south-east. The fort marked on my map at 397m looks good.||Alan Moore||19/04/2018|
|Ascended from carpark, heading for Geal Charn.||JohnW||10/04/2017|
|Last in a circuit of Simms and Fives. Three summit candidates: the one 200m south appears several metres higher although could be an illusion due to much bigger hills behind. Worth a visit. Then easy descent sw and stroll along track back to car park.||RHW||25/03/2016|
