From B9007. Cnapan a' Choire Odhair Mhoir, Carn Glas-choire, Carn nan Eagan. Cold, snow on tops.RobertP30/10/2018
An easy walk via Auchterteang, parking along the track, over the cattle grid by some sand heaps. The views from the top are splendid, and the summit is covered in lichen. The track has been upgraded all the way to the highest junction and the going is very easy and ugly. The RH branch goes way up the hill, where SSE are doing something nasty but you take the LH branch, which has been extended right over the moor. There is a nasty caterpillar track heading off from this almost to the summit. Why is it that people who want to slaughter grouse and deer have lost the use of their legs? There is a handy hut part way up the track, very useful for sitting out torrential downpours.Gill23/09/2018

From the eastern Road anticlockwise circuit over TuMPs and Marilyn /Graham. High cloud very light breeze. Ideal walking weathervegibagger11/06/2018
Local informants suggest parking 200m down the track to Auchterteang, (small metal shed on my visit), and starting the walk from there. Up the track, right fork, due N over two tops of Crag na h-Iolarie. Rejoin track, and ridge W to summit.Minto09/06/2018
With Dave Roeder. From road (8:35) took estate track past Auchterteang to high point near 912301, then along broad ridge (mostly short heather) to top. Back via more direct track (which now crosses ridge). Overcast, some drizzle. Finish 12:50dbb22/04/2018
MMC Aviemore Day 2. Rob W, Nick H, Jon M and I Roadside by Auchterteang along tracks almost to the trig. Snowy fresh dry day.alexmaclennan04/03/2018
From SW, 2km up track on bike until it got too boggy, and very soon too steep. Mainly track but 'leggy' heather for final section. A wet and increasingly windy day made it not too pleasant but better than the overnight storms and than the forecast.dickscroop17/10/2017
Overnighted in Granton. Headed up hill at 5:30am, summit at 7:15am and back at car for 8:30am. Parked to East near 384 spot height of Beum a''Chlaidheimh and ascended/descended cross country via Carn Allt Laoigh. Nice views of the Cairngorms and Ben Rhinnes.assynt_bob03/06/2017
With Peterb. Usual route from Auchterteang. Followed the track to the high point then headed up snow covered slopes to summit. Zero visibility on top and quite significant snow fall and wind. Retraced steps to return.bowlesy02/01/2017
Parked at the forestry access near Auchterteang and walked via the estate track before striking up to the summit for the final 500 metres or so. We had decent views for most of the way though visibility was poor at the summit. Ankle deep snow at the top didn't present any difficulties. With ChrisPeterb02/01/2017

Route from the South East. Hot sunny day, saw a lizard - could have been in the Med! Best to leave path at the wider bit where a new section has been added. Head ESE to the summit.callumorr19/07/2016
Parked beside gate of forest to the south. Grouse moor with gin traps. Followed track to Creag na h-Iolaire which was not really worth the hassle of extra bog trotrogreeves03/07/2016

Up from Auchterteang. Very windy.ngthack09/03/2015
From SE starting at 929261. The track now extends further than shown on the map but should not be taken any further, turn left off the track past a line of butts and stay south of some horrible peat hags.Topographer5704/10/2014

Good track most of the way up from Auchterteang, although the last stretch was boggy and not much fun. Lots of hares near the top. Very windy at the top. Weather closed in quickly and fairly wet by the time I got back to the car.killiedaft02/07/2013

From nr Auchterteang, park down track 100m room one car. Up track past shooting hut and onto Carn Eagan, then ridge to Glas Choire. Down east ridge to Cnapain a Choire, then over lower rocky tops of Iolaire and south top. Easy going and new tracks, back to car.nordicstar28/12/2012

Parked at entrance to block of forest, 300 m S of Auchterteang track. Space, but wouldn't advise on a working day. Nice over meadows, tried to follow interesting route over Creag na h-Iolaire but this didn't work well.I think it best to use the many hill tracks and accept this isn't such wild land anymore. Still a rough finish with some peat hags- and sight of a Hen Harrier. A race against worsening weather- no summit view. Usable weather, though.pwheeler21/06/2012

Started from roadside parking at NH 935289, through gates, field, across burn then WSW over rough ground to join track, which now goes right up to the ridge and then a short 500m ridge walk to the summit. New deer fencing no problem - handy gates etcmartin_hall06/02/2012

With a friend. From the B9007 Duthil-Ferness road at NH930266. Walked back along the road a short distance before going along a track past Auchterteang, which took us most of the way to the summit of Carn Glas-choire. Returned the same way.pwbellarby22/05/2011
Revisit. windswept snowy plateau with a nice view. Did it the hard way, from WNW, Balvraid (lodge being renovated), to take in the 635m Graham Top (and LR27 highpoint!). Heavy going with snow mostly not firm enough for easy walking.RHW15/02/2010

Walked up from the road by Auchterteang. Good track that is cyclable at least half the way, and possible by Bike all the way. Locked gate at the farm trhta would have to be carried over.andy27/06/2009
