Wet and tiring walk in rain and low cloud from Scallastle to Dun Da Ghaithe, Mainnir nam Fiadh trig, then there and back bealach and Sgur Dearg. Walked out along the three masts road back to Craignure. also had to walk back to Scallastle as left other car key in the Scallastle car. 6 hours.alexmaclennan20/05/2017
A traverse including Sgurr Dearg, Meinnir nam Fiadh, Dun da Ghaoithe, Beinn Thunacaraidh and Beinn Mheadhain and diagonal traverse NE to road.Detoured south around bad step coming off Beinn Dearg, could not see a line from above, might have been more obvious from below. Final descent line had much poor ground, tussocks etc, would not really recommend it, there must be a better way. This apart, a good day.dickscroop14/04/2017
Parked one car at the forest car park opposite Java Hotel and one at the foot of the track to the telecoms masts. Walked forest track to the white foot bridge and then went down stream to gate left. Then followed fence up hill and then across grassy slopes to a gate through the final deer fence at a waterfall. Up the Beinn Chreagach to the top which was windy and in the cloud. Continued on to the first telecom mast in cloud and used track for descent.mindlessflogger17/12/2016

With G. From Craignure on track > Druim Mor > Maol nan Uan on transmitter track > Mainnir nam Fiadh > Dun da Ghaoithe returning NNE towards Beinn Chreagach then E down to Scallastle & track/road to Craignure. Final descent to Scallaste through scrub tricky (NM 694 377) & no obvious route - apparently N via Cnoc a' Bhacain is the way to go.RT197018/09/2015

Early ferry from Oban (family holiday) to Craignure then up to Dun da Ghaoithe and back via Mainnir nam Fladh. Sunny all day. Saw a golden eagle on DdG and ended the day in the Craignure Inn. Brilliant!nosdrahcir03/06/2010
Climbed on a sweltering day with fantastic views all round. Only problem was that the last ferry was cancelled due to the usual Calmac bullshit. Managed the circuit in 4 and a half hourse from Craignuregman31/05/2009

With Tomasz, Ian, Laura & Mark. Staying at Craignure. Saw what was probably a stag do of likely looking lads near summit.Grinner14/07/2007
Dun da Ghaoithe (NM 672362)S/F NM722348 Sunny with moderate wind. Hill fog blew through whilst on summit so no view, but fantastic views to Fort William on slopes. Second attempt - first abandoned from bothy at NM616373 a few days earlier. Very rough ground, boggy, rain and low cloud - pointless.John Young01/08/2006

Solo. After climbing Sgurr Dearg and Mainnir nam Fiadh I continued to Dùn da Ghaoithe. Shortly after I left the summit it rained heavily. I descended via Beinn Chreaghach to Scallastle, the last part being through unpleasant bracken. I walked along the road to reach the pier at Craignure for the ferry to Oban.pwbellarby26/07/1998
