|From the lay-by opposite Gruinards Lodge||Peterb||22/02/2018|
|From Gruinards. Good path in to ford and then up steep slopes mainly grass. The heather can be generally avoided. Surprisingly complex ridge with huge boulders littering the route. Scotland's answer to Easter Island? Great viewpoint in brilliant weather.||Campbell Singer||04/05/2017|
|From Gruinards lodge. Squeezed supervans into the end of a passing place and used old path to get over the intermediate ridge and a steep hard climb up onto the main ridge. Tough ground but once on summit rocks got easier. From top went onto subsidiary summit to East and then took a beeline route back down to the burn at 140m. Found a connecting old syalkers path to get us back to the route in.||nordicstar||25/07/2016|
|Quite a nice varied walk, with a useful track for starters.||jenx||25/07/2016|
|From Strath Rusdale in heavy rain. The walk along the track to Lochan a'Chairn is unbelievably easy and fast. It was a real surprise to find a tarmac road running dead straight up to the Loch in the middle of this amazing wilderness. The climb onto the ridge is easy, but the walk along the ridge would probably be more pleasurable in good weather with views. Let's just say there are lots of bumps interspersed regularly with peat hags. Had to dust off the compass on the way down, as the ridge is sufficiently vague to require accurate navigation in poor weather. Amazed to find a tented city had grown up back at the Loch.||Gill||16/06/2016|
