Smudge's route worked well from us.jenx25/08/2016
With Druim Fada anti clockwise from Barachandroman. Spectacular wilderness walk. No paths but not too bad underfoot. Great views across Firth of Lorne and plenty eagles seen.AndrewFinnimore10/05/2016
Revisited en route from Beinn na Sroine to AirigheRHW02/06/2015
With SG via the boggy track that starts just E of the Lian Mor woods. This misses the summit by c400m so wilder vegetation has to be tackled to reach the trig.Smudge02/06/2015
My 600th marilyn. Done with Jon Metcalftallblond30/05/2015
Third top today with a great view point to the islands with Jim Bloomer.Dugswell202/05/2013
With Alfie.Dangerous Dave13/03/2013
Started at NM678260 where there is an ATV track that takes you a fair way up the hill. Then a series of deer/sheep trods may or may not help. Sea eagles as company. Bet they enjoy the view too.Martin R18/04/2012
From minor road near BarachanromanBLACKHILL24/04/2011
Squelch job from the north. Best avoided in summer due to vegetation, but lovely when the grass is down. Another good viewpoint.fasgadh16/04/2011
Parked by Loch Spelve on Croggan road. By a small mast very treacherous underfoot, deep deer grass, rough heather and boulders. Deep waist high thin stuff which took huge steps to trample down to make progress even on higher ground. Through first line of crags around to left bank of stream. On second horizon bore right and saw higher ground about a mile away with more difficult trudging over a minor drop and up to ridge. Vanessa 10505 was 400m further with more drops and rises. To top at 12.30. Rain came on and slow and drear plod back to road watching every step.arranc03/09/2006
Round of Maol Ban and Drium Fada from Brachandroman. Up the side of A'Bhuigneach wood, circumventing the 'cnocs, and strugling arouns the 'maols' to the 3 tops of Maol Ban.Eddie30/06/2002
Date is first visit. Notes from later...fine view, pleasant approach from SW. park 660256, directish line to D Fada & from M Ban RHW28/03/2002
