An easy walk from the road summit (good parking) along a mainly frozen ATV track, patchy snow on the track, good snow higher up, just enough to make the going easy. Great views. Very enjoyable to be out after over a month of house repairs with no hills.Gill13/03/2020
From Glen Loth Road at sheepfold, then followed the Gable Burn to summit plateau, with Ellie dogBLACKHILL17/06/2019
From summit of Glen Loth road via point 377m then NW ridge. Damp ATV tracks make for an easy if damp route. Excellent views.Winterfloodian01/06/2019
Along the NW ridge from top of road pass. Light quad tracks for much of the way made a difference.Topographer5713/08/2017
Parked at 937163. 100m up road and onto ATV track to A'Chasg. Stay to N of lochan, less wet (not dry), then straight up BM. Sunny, warm and great viewsiangalbraith06/08/2017
Late afternoon run after Ben Griam Mor/Beg...not so wise long day. From A9, couldn't find spot to leave car at Culgower, so drove north to GR987125 where Layby on southbound is opposite the small road. Up the road and then turn up the gorse lined track near caravans past a cottage higher up. Track continues up to the pylon. At this point the gorse fills the track/path bed making use of the shelter. Easy going along the edge though and to follow the line of gorse up the hill. Gorse gives up higher up then along track to end then over wet moorland to last summit rise. Run down in the dark.N.Morters03/03/2017
9 of 10: From A Chrasg.ChrisR29/01/2017
Ascended after Carn Garbh leaving the GLen Loth road from NC936129. The lower slopes from this point have very thick vegetation. If repeated I would leave the Glen Loth road at NC934136 to try and avoid this. Descended north west back to my original starting point at the viewpoint at the summit of the Glen Loth road (see Beinn Dhorain)raffemeister22/08/2016

From NC 93619 12919 in Glen Loth over Creag Riasgain.Alan Moore22/06/2010
Parked on old A9 left after widenings. Steeply up on a tarred road to a cottage and footpath continued beyond thick locked deer gate which I climbed by using the adjacent wire fence. Over 2 miles up through heather in a groove in the hill, sometimes blocked by gorse. Very strong wind all day. O trousers on as heavy rain shower came on. When path ran out at 1500' a steady plod over short heather, tussock, cotton grass and spongy stuff to top at 10.55. Severe NW wind. Nice hill apart from locked gate at the start. Tent shredded at Brora next day and drove home from 4.30 am to 17.00. 542 miles.arranc20/06/2008
