Parked at the end of the forestry track, then straight up between the blocks of forestry. Nasty terrain, tussocks, holes, bracken, hidden rocks and steep, up to a decrepit, low fence. Beinn na Killer. Slightly better above, with the angle easing close to the summit. Nice views from the top. Descended west, much better going, not as steep, no bracken, and picked up an ATV track when the gradient eases, leading neatly to the track leading down through the forestry. This is probably a much better way up the hill too.Gill21/10/2019
On first day of solo week in Ardgour/Sunart. The Glen Galmadale horseshoe. Parked just E of bridge & then climbed steeply between forestry & river on other side of it to summit of Beinn na Cille. Definitely easier to use E bank of river. A bit of a slog. Stags roaring everywhere. Dropped N to low col & then an easier wander up to Fuar Bheinn & then round to Creach Bheinn. Continued to Maol Odhar & then completed the round before dropping back gently to starting point. Noisy stags all day but only actually saw 2 lone hinds.NotReallyABagger29/09/2019

Round of Glen Galmadale with Richard, Luigi & Mia (dog). From car (10:30) at foot of glen, up steeply by wood and above to SE ridge and B na Cille (12:25). Rain started, cloud down. Northward down to col and up ridge to Fuar Bheinn (13:50). Rain stopped, still in cloud. Down to broad col then up long stony slope to Creach Bheinn (15:15). Cloud lifted, views appeared.

Day trip from Stonehaven. From Camasnacroise on narrow B8043. Solo. Ascended steeply at the north end of a wood to reach the southern slopes of Beinn na Cille. I reached its summit and continued N to reach the summit of Fuar Bheinn. Continued to Creach Bheinn. To the NE of the summit, at a col with a minor top, there are two stone dykes with three hut circles between them, said to be a relic of the Napoleonic Wars. I continued over Maol Odhar and Meall nan Each. I missed the last ferry, so had to drive round Loch Eil and then back to Stonehaven.pwbellarby24/05/1997
