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

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

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

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

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
