2nd ascent of Morven,ran in from Braemore in glorious weather.Bracolbag 18/07/2017
A good 10.5 mile walk and climb, sadly the cloud stuck stubbornly to the peak so no views. We climbed straight up the east side, but returned SSE which would have been a better ascent.callumorr22/07/2016
Solo jog, on a very wet and windy round of Scaraben and Morven.amswanston03/01/2016
Weather fair, fantastic looking mountain.MountainMac29/12/2015

Steep climb. Great long distance views.BigJ14/07/2015
Took estate track from Braemore to Corrichoich W. alongside river on sheep/deer tracks to tributary at 024494 SW beside stream on sheep/deer tracks before heading up to col Contoured round to SE side of hill to approx. 010278 Headed up towards the left side of the wide heather-clad gully with boulder fields either side & rocky outcrops above. A path starts from the left and then goes up the centre of the gully. From the top of the gully a short walk to the summit. (S)gerrybowes18/10/2014

Sunny, hot, windy, hard going, long day good views.iangalbraith08/06/2014
round of 4 marilyns from braemore.robertphillips07/06/2014
W Jenx on the round of the 4 Marilyns; Maiden Pap, Smean, Morven and Scaraben. A 9 hour day in generally good weather, very wet underfoot though after the dowsing yesterday. Up from Braemore - Maiden Pap, Smean and then direct up the East face of Morven. A reasonable path develops that takes you into the boulder field, comes out on the upper left side. Contour around the initial stack, to its left to the summit. Great spot. King of the Mountains!nordicstar06/06/2014
Asked the gamekeeper at Braemore. No problem. The climb is straightforward if you can find the faint path between Carn Mor.bolton06/08/2013
Solo. From end of public road near Braemore Lodge. Followed track to Corrichoich. To col between Morvern and Carn Mr using bits of path of sorts. Went directly up to summit using path I found. Heathery to start with and then conglomerate boulders. Extensive views from summit. Used gully on SE side for descent.pwbellarby02/08/2013

Finally, I've waited a long time to ascend this hill, it was well worth it. Found a reasonable route up the south east side. Great views to Hoy and Cairngorms.sotabagger26/05/2013
Ascent from the east by the usual route. Very clear day.fasgadh23/07/2010
From Breamore Lodge, with MoraBLACKHILL27/05/2010
Long hot walk in from Braeval enlivened only by occasional hailstorms. Excellent views to both North and South with haze in the west. Views of Maiden Pap are convincingly the most breast like hill of this or similar names that I have seen.andy09/05/2009

My last Scottish County top. From road end at Braemore on an excellent road past the bothy at Corrichoich for coffee at 11.00. Faint green path making straight for the hill, which faded out among cotton grass and heathery tumps. Into a bealach and up over steep heather slopes. Rocky slides showing evidence of previous walkers. Whole hillside covered in pink conglomerate rocks. An easy clamber over a last 15' rock band and 200' over peat and grass. 12.45. Massive views including Ben Loyal and the Orkneys.arranc16/06/2008
