Ben Buie and Creach Beinn from the stone circle parking. This completes all the Marilyn's in the Highlands; just 6 in the Borders remain.PGCE24/02/2020
Parked at the bridge - 615255. Headed up the path NE up Abhainn a Chaiginn Mhoir and at the highest point went directly west to the summit. Steep and hard work in hot conditions. Solo. Returned the same way as I decided Creach Beinn was too much in the conditions.bolton21/09/2019

Up broad ridge (some fine gabbro slabs) to N summit and thence to Ben Buie top (19:00). Down S to path leading R through cliff line then steep slopes to road by phone box. Car 20:05. Warm sunny day, good views.dbb01/05/2019

With Jenx from A road highpoint. Easy grass slopes first, then over craggy tops. Neat Graham top snow blew in and became a blizzard. Compass problems due to the rocks made for an interesting descent in 4 inches of snow!nordicstar27/04/2015
