From the minor road to the north west. Followed the stream side of the fence to avoid a bull, then crossed into the field further up. Straightforward but at times wintry ascent up the NW ridge. With DW.Owen B18/02/2020
Second visit. I meant to do the 6 Dodd horseshoe but was foiled by deep, soft snow. It took over 1.5 hours to fight my way to the first summitColin Crawford15/12/2019
Northwest ridge in the late afternoon. Slightly damp. Itís easier if you donít cross the deer fence (as you only have to cross it again).Jon F05/11/2019
Handy 6 Dodd circuit, picking off Dalwhinnie FBM on the descent back to the road. Glad I decided to reverse my original plan and do this peak first while the weather was still fair. Poured it down all the way for the 2 hour plod back to Newtonmore.Alex C01/11/2019
Anticlockwise round of Allt Coire Mhoraich. Good views wet underfoot in places. Last of the day and a trigpoint. Met a party of 4 on way down who were suprised to see another walker.cjo05/10/2019

A good hill, starting near the memorial. Parked on the grass by the large boulder at the fork in the forest road. Obvious route to the N ridge, with the tracks visible through felled forestry. Small section of new planting, easy, to the deer fence. Needs climbing, and the only bit that isn't rickety is by a fence post made from a tree trunk. Contour below the bumpy ridge on easy short vegetables, then step over a BWF at a boggy col. Head for an obvious break in the crags above a scree slope, and grovel up a peaty stony rooty deer track. Very easy thereafter, with a good path. Splendid views all the way.Gill10/06/2018

Along the track to the north-west (parking a couple of hundred metres along the road to the east); then south-east making a bee-line for the top across heathery ground, climbing two deer fences in the process.martin_hall16/04/2018

Saved the largest for last. An impressive trig, and fab 360 degree panorama on a stunningly sunny November day.summitter18/11/2017

Quick walk up from the center of Scotland marmoreal in GlentruimNozzer29/05/2017
Bagging the trig. Parked at the stone marking one of the supposed centres of Scotland near Glentruim. Followed the markd trail to the nearest cairn. From here, there is a new deer fence barring the way to the next set of cairns. This was negotiated successfully and the cairns were reached. Then it was on past a broadband aerial array, over a low fence and on to the trig via a steep diagonal path. Great views up and down the A9 and away to the west.BigJ29/05/2017

Parked at 659935 and headed up the track south before crossing the burn and keeping to the north side of the fence on the NW ridge. This avoids negotiating deer fences higher up. Just under 2 hours solo.bolton14/02/2017

From the north via track then fence. Such lovely views all round today.jenx14/03/2016
With a friend. From near the war memorial to the north of Cruban Beag. We followed a track south, taking a branch SW and then following a fence. We had noted the crag signs on the OS 1:50,000 map, but thought we ought to be able to climb up the prow of the NE ridge of Cruban Beag. It was steep heather with snow and icy in parts. Higher up it became rocky and a bit icy so we decided to retreat as a slip could have unpleasant consequences. We contoured round to the west and climbed steeply up a leftwards slanting defile. This was also heather with snow, but we did succeed here to reach easier slopes leading to the summit of Cruban Beag. Saw an eagle. Descended the NW ridge, keeping to the left of crags. We came across a fence, which we followed down, keeping to the right of the fence. Low down we crossed a field with cattle in it to reach the road at a gate. No need for any fence climbing. Walked along the road back to the cars.pwbellarby17/01/2016
