Ben Armine group from start of track to E on B871. Long walk in with bright sunshine and views across Loch Badanloch to Ben Loyal in the distance. Left track to climb Creag na h-Iolaire then along ridge to Meall nan Aighean, Ben Armine, Creag Mhor. Return N then descent Coir' an Eas to reach path running to E of ridge. Camped overnight under Ben Armine. Rain during the long walk back along track.RobertP08/07/2019
Superb weather. Cycled from Garvault Hotel via Badanloch along excellent estate road. Picked up stalkers paths to col. Long day but an excellent one amongst true remoteness.trimarc215/05/2019
Cycled in from Badanloch Lodge on good track easily in 1 hour 15 had to Ben Armine & Creag Mhòr in trainers because in forgot my boots 6 hours, no problems luckily it was in middle of heat wave.rogreeves02/07/2018
A strong headwind made an otherwise easy bike ride challenging. Dropped the bike by a gravel pit above Loch Trudascaig. Up easy stuff to cross the path onto the NE ridge of Meall nan Aighean, short heather towards the top gave temporary relief from rough stuff. Traversed around the side of the hill to a hagged section, and escaped to climb easy stony ground, then shaggy green moss to the top of Ben Armine. Fine views. Very nice descent on dry stony ground, then a raised bog, then down into the stream way. Up to Creag Mhor, at first weaving around hags and pools. The steeper part was much nicer dry ground, past a curious square cairn, to the summit. Down keeping right of the hags, and contouring back to the same point at the col, and then rising traverse to meet the path. On the track below Ben Armine, then bee-line back to the bike. Hints and tips: it is a really easy bike ride, and the hill isnít nearly as remote as itís made out to beGill05/05/2018

Walked across moor, over stalkers track and the two GTG, Armine and Creag Mhor (watch the hags between). Great day, sparkling views.
