Up the 4WD track from Netherton, crossing a being-built road going E-W across the range (I know that these mountain tracks are handy for us baggers, but surely enough now!). Eventually the track took me to just below Beinn Eagagach, after which I went cross country to Meall an Fhearna, Beinn Eagagach West Top, then Farragon Hill. Returned to Netherton via the North Top, Creag an Lochain and its North Top, Soon Mhor, then a track to the east of the burn east of this final hill, which leads all the way back to the lochside road. About 5 leisurely hrs in total.summitter20/09/2019
With Sue from Netherton the river crossing just passable on a very wet and windy day. This made the use of bikes not a good idea. Walked the track then onto the fairly craggy top. Returned same way. expected the rain to ease and rivers were passable.Frank31/08/2019
Biked to what used to be Netherton for a late evening ascent of Tom an Fhuarain before a bivi just before the top of Beinn Eagagach continuing the next day with ten more tops to finish at the Lime kiln car park and my car. Beinn Eagagach; Creag an Lochain; Farragon Hill; Creag Mhadaidh; Creag an Loch; Ciochana Chop; Meall Tairneachan; Creag Chean and Meall Odhar Mor. A lot of heather!dickscroop26/08/2019
Day's walk in steady rain with John, Mike, Dave M & Scott.barnz4827/04/2019
E along forest track from B846 to near Meall Tairneachan, up and down that, continuing along track through mine (not active on a Saturday) to its end, then across rocky hills to Farragon Hill, approaching it from SW, and ascending. Return more directly W to forest track and back to B846.kdbennett24/11/2018
Through the mine from the west. Saturday, so no-one told us we couldn't.Pete R10/11/2018
From Netherton following good track, which I left at a dog-leg, after some descent from passing Beinn Eagagach. Farragon looks & is a superb hill, which appears to be further from the dog-leg than it is. A nice remote feel on this approach, once good track is left.ger05/09/2018
Walked in from the road at the start of mine Rd, Cold start to the day both Corbett done. lot of snow and good news it was hard.Nozzer01/04/2018
Parked at NN780562 across the road to forest entrance. Lots of snow mostly of good quality. Long walk in, actually interesting walking through mine and quarry. Top looked a bit too steep without crampons, but moving around southwards was much easier. Long walk back, but only took 6 hours.Jhimmy31/03/2018
Solo. Parked just east of Netherton. Everywhere was white with deep snow and thigh-deep drifts. The walk in was very arduous under these conditions. Steep ice climb requiring front points of crampons to get up last section to summit cairn! Scary climbing back down!Dangerous Dave19/03/2018
Recce for club walkiansm18/11/2017
From Edradynate in thick fog and pouring rain. The hill was completely invisible from the track, so I climbed way too high up the track before realising I was nearly at the top of the adjacent HUMP. Oops. After back tracking to Lochan a'Chait, the mist cleared, and it was jolly good to be able to see the route upwards. Thoroughly soaked.Gill13/11/2016

From the Limekiln, down the B846 and up the mine road which eventually fizzled out leaving a grassy ascent to the summit. Cloud which was coming and going, very much down on the summit.Windy Corner18/10/2015

15th Solo. Bus Pitlochry to Kynachan. B846 to track through forest, follow all the way to summit of Meall Tairneachan. Pass open cast mine, then tracks disappear, ENE to summit Farragon Hill, then continue along highest line with crags on right til access Rob Roy Way by comms mast. Dry, overcast day, a couple of light showers, but good visibility. Second half of day good for navigation practice, else little to commend these hills. Hard going off the quarry tracks.RGibbs24/04/2014
