Parked at Bhlàraidh on verge near bridge at end of Armco barrier, then up forest track and subsequent windfarm tracks to north-east of Loch a Chrathaich, then over east top and to summit. Returned to east side via a few tumps. Moor vista spoiled by turbine farm. Saw virtually no wildlife but local told me that the multiple lochs have not had many wildfowl for over 20 years.willyross20/05/2020

Followed traditional route via loch liath. Just before loch ma stac cut across to new windfarm road which now terminates on the bealach between the graham and it's western top. Huge project ongoing at moment (35 turbines being erected). Descended via loch a chrathaich and picked up the wind farm motorway.Crumblie208/04/2017
From the south at Blaraidh. Much windfarm work ongoing. Old track still usable for most of the way. Cycles useful. Pretty boggy off the track.jenx12/08/2016
From Bhlaraidh w Jenx. Cycled/pushed up the first steep 200m then once the turbine track has been left the old track is cyclable all the way to lochan na stac. Boggy vehicle tracks/terrain to spur of the Graham top then easy through to summit. On to Mhic an Toisich. Bikes gave a fast descent afterwards and a riund trip of tge two Grahams and tops in 6 hrs.nordicstar12/08/2016
Cycled in from Biaraidh to Loch ma Stac. Wonderfully desolate area about to be ravaged by a windfarm.Campbell Singer01/05/2016

4 of 4: From West top.ChrisR29/11/2012
Date uncertain. Photos may yield a date. Mountain biked in. Think it was probably the day after the XXL Kinlocheil Bunkhouse weekend (17-19th August 2012), so probably the 21st.tallscottishguy21/08/2012
