A good circuit from Knock, parking by the gate to the Loch Ba track. Out to Gortenbuie on track, then path disappears then reappears along river, messed up by cattle. Up the fine and very steep NE ridge of Corra-Bheinn, then steep descent to Mam a Coir' Idhar on S side of ridge to avoid crags. Mad looking climb to Cruchan Dearg but climb almost up to first band of crags, head NW below them on sheep tracks and then up easy grass and scree. Onwards to Cruachan Beag and lemming impersonation off the NW ridge of Bith Bheinn eases off to sensible terrain back to the stony track. Note that the track is pretty bumpy, on average flat and with many loose sections and a bike might be more trouble than it's worth.Gill12/07/2020
A round of Corra-Bheinn and Cruachan Dearg. Really spoilt with views over Skye to the north and Jura to the south.Nicky C24/03/2020
With Dave Roeder. Parked at Teeanga Brideig (10:05) and followed glen to col and thence to Cruachan Dearg (12:30). Then along twisting ridge via Corra-bheinn (13:35), Bheinn a'Mheadhain (15:15) to Cruach Coireadail (16:00). Down westward to hanging valley then steeply down to road for walk back to car.dbb03/05/2019
Full ridge including Corra-bheinn, Cruach Choireadail and tops in perfect conditions.RobertP01/05/2019
4 of 4: From Corra-bheinn. Down to the road and into the wind back to the car. Failed to see bus coming along behind me; shame!ChrisR16/10/2017
Corra Beinn and Cruachan Dearg via pat from bridge on old road to south reached by bus. Had planned continuing with traverse across face of A chioch but very windy so cut short. In any event traverse looked problematic.dickscroop15/04/2017
From Teanga Brideig by the route described in the SMC Graham guidebook. Took in Cruachan Dearg, Corra Bheinn, Beinn a' Mheadhain and Cruach Choireadail.davidpettit8429/12/2016

Parked down at bridge on old road, NM563306, took the stalkers track but its in poor shape and after 150m cut up hill aiming for the cut between the Torr and main hill. Continued direct up ridge to summit. Onwards round the group of four main hills.nordicstar30/04/2015
Walked in from SW with Jim Bloomer for a walk around Corra- bheinn with a finish on Crauch Choireadal for a GR8 day out in the sun and wind.Dugswell230/04/2013
Did it with Corra Bheinn on 2 day Graham bagging trek. Did it just in case it became higher.Thearlaichdubh13/07/2012
With Alfie.Dangerous Dave02/05/2012
Started by bridge at Teanga Brideig. Followed path until Torr na h-Uamha. Gained ridge to Cruachan Dearg summit, down to col and up to Corra-bheinn. Descended south ridge to road. Great views of B More and A'Chioch. Lots of mice.Martin R15/04/2012
Park at Teanga. Along an indistinct path shown on the map,leading to col. Underfoot it was like walking in perpetual sludge. It was a 90 minute horror. To the pass and up on grass, dodging rock outcrops to a steep clear clamber to the top at 12.15. Neat cairn of sharp black stones. To Corra-Bheinnarranc09/09/2006

From A849 at NM 62977 31338 on the way to Ben MoreAlan Moore25/05/2003
On Knock- Corra-bheinn- Cruachan Dearg- Cruachan Beag- Knock walk, on a hot, cloudless day. Back in 2002, we were not sure which of the two 2300 ft + tops was the highest. Visiting both gives the most satisfying looking walk in this remote area beyond Loch Ba's inlet. Pete and I enjoyed it a lot.pwheeler06/06/2002
Solo. MTB from Torlochan to Knock then track to (567370) by Loch Ba. Climbed Bith-Bienn to Cruachan Bheag & Dearg. Continued to bealach by Creag Mhic Fionnlaidh & return through Glen Clachaig. Overcast & misty.Vin21/10/2001
