From power station, then on to Beinn Dubh an Iaruinn. Very windy, arduous walking.NormanW11/05/2018
From upper Power station, easy ridge to flat summit area. Then onto Beinn Dubh an Iaruinn. Low cloud. 1/4N.Morters04/05/2018
Up the stalkers path, needs more traffic, then slithered down the hill to continue to BDAI, in a gale and somewhat damp.Gill28/10/2017
5 of 6: From Meallan Odhar.ChrisR08/04/2017
From power station with Jenx on a right dreich day, unlike other logs! Worst Marilyn so far of 2016; low cloud, headwind and wetting drizzle. Ground everywhere waterlogged. Followed track, then path before finding the old stalkers path up to 500m which was the only bright spot! Rebuilt cairn on boulder, which in my opinion isn't the top (It'll roll away one day), that is 10m to NW. Carried on through the murk to lower tops, col and the second Marilyn.nordicstar21/03/2016
I liked the old stalkers path. Well built and good gradient. Weather could have even better.jenx21/03/2016
From power station.Martin R12/10/2015
Drove to power station at 183381 per access agreement with MCofS. Short distance along track then ascended intermittent path up east ridge. Back down path towards Beinn Dubh.Topographer5714/08/2015
With Dave Roeder. Parked at 223392 (9:45) & took path NE up glen, then E ridge to Beinn na Muice. Fine rocky peak. Wonderful blue day, long views all round. Descended W ridge to Monar Lodge. Crossed both dams (imposing water-fan on 1st), & cont to B Dubh an Iaruinn, following grassy ridge up from southern dam over lump to summit. Then cont E via the col to Meall Odhar.Doire nan Gillean, traversing both tops. Then back down to path, road & car (18:00). Wonderful sunny clear day, but sadly no time to do sm Marilyn by dam.dbb14/05/2015

Ascended in perfect weather from carpark at power station. Unfortunately I forgot my camera.JohnW02/06/2009
Parked at end of tarred road in Glen Farrar. On track for a mile then on stalkers path up a side valley. Took own line up over dryish moor. Steps in ground uphill made going relatively easy. Onto final mossy dome to find a few stones on an erratic at 11.25. No view - mist. Carved walking stick left there. to Iaruinnarranc10/06/2007
