From car park at Keiloch, along estate roads to W of Altdourie, then tracks N in glen of Glas Allt Beag, continuing to col between Creag an Dail Bheag and Carn Liath, W to the first, then E to the second, descending to Loch Builg track, following that to a sharp bend W of Culardoch, continuing on small tracks and paths up Culardoch, descending S to track that then rejoins Loch Builg track, thence S to Invercauld and return to Keilochkdbennett13/04/2019

During a week in Tomintoul. With Smithy from the car park (£3) at Keiloch. Followed the RoW NE from just short of Invercauld House. Just before exiting the trees, put my sack down on a nest of quite gigantic ants! Took track all way to high point due W of Culardoch & then slanted up the final slope into a very stiff wind to the top. Swift retreat down to col, back along track for about 1km & then took an obvious path just past a small cairn to Carn Liath/Creag An Dail Bheag. Wandered over every lump & bump like a proper bagger just to be sure. Strangely not as windy as Culardoch. Then made a total mess of the descent by initially following the wall & then changing tack, heather bashing over to the outward track & back to the car.NotReallyABagger09/09/2018

Fabulous solo walk, with a major sting in the tail. Up through wonderful open scots pine woods, fluffy cumulus and blue sky above, ocassional interesting fungi, grass heads dancing in an ocasional light breeze. Long track north. Eight mountain bikers working with BP from 5 different counties struggle in low gear uphill. Cullardoch summiit 12.50. Across to Carn liath, many topped plateau with two tops 150/200m noth of the mrked highest cairn that look higher. On to newly re-confirmed Corbett Creag an Dail Beag. then contouring round the western side of Carn Liaths slopes en route to southern spur and SE to SIM Creag a'Chait. Before getting there, while contouring across a very gently angled slope boulder field, I experienced myself being conscious of feeling I was hopping across the boulder field fairly fast and feeling double edged, both happy with what I percieved as fairly good sense of balance, but also conscious of how easy it was for boulders to move under my feet ...but..but....bvegibagger18/07/2014

Alone. From Keiloch to the stable at Bealach Dearg and the summit of Culardoch. The descent to the stable was in very poor conditions very strong wind blowing straight at me hardly able to see anything at all snowing. After a short rest in the stable I continued in better conditions along outward route. Snow lying at all levels.pwbellarby24/01/1993
