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
From S, via Torr na h-Uamha, en route to its two NE topsRHW29/05/2015

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

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

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

Ascended from Corra-bheinn in perfect weather. Descended to A849 for road walk back.JohnW09/04/2000
Bagged after Corra-bheinn on big day of Grahams and Corbetts. I hadn't annotated the map but Veni, vidi 500', vici. Fortunate for once!Eddie21/04/1995
