Over tussocky terrain from Beinn Chreagach. Back via Cnocan Buidhe and Nuns Pass.NormanW13/07/2018
Left car in one of several gaps behind passing places at around NM533226. With Mike. Walked along road to shore line and then proceeded along shoreline path to Carsaig Arches (well worth visiting). From the first arch we made a rising traverse north eastwards to around NM498189 where there is an obvious weakness in the cliffs to the right of a small pinnacle in a shallow gully. By walking into the shallow gully and scrambling up moist slabs exit can be made onto a ledge which deposits you on steep grassy slopes above the cliffs between lochans at NM499190 and NM498190. Ascended to Creachan Mor. Traversed across sometimes soft and tussocky ground directly to Beinn Chreagach and then returned via Cnoc a Bhragad to the road and the starting point.raffemeister16/04/2016
Great walk,pity about the many showers. I also could not see the arches. They must be closer to the cliffs than I was able to see.tallblond02/06/2015
Up here with Jim F on a typical Mull weather day.Alex C01/06/2015
From Carsaig: see Cnocan BuidheRHW31/05/2015
With SG & PM. Failed to find a viable way down to Carsaig arches after visiting summit but hit the cliffs too far E according to RW.Smudge31/05/2015
Climbed from a camp on the Dearg Bhealach.Chris Peart05/05/2015
With Jenx, parked on minor road near to track at NM532229, room for one car at 200m. At end of rough track ATV continues up to @ 270m, strike up hill to summit over several tops. Continued on to Creachan Mor via Cnocan Buidhe. Low point is soft but passable, some deep pools to avoid. Both M's have good craggy features. Back along cliffs to Nun's Pass, easy steep descent to coast path followed with interest to Carsaig, where cut across fields to raod then followed to car.nordicstar27/04/2015
With Alfie. We climbed Binnein Ghorrie (277m) too.Dangerous Dave21/02/2015
Parked Cnoc a Bhraghad, along track that gradually disappeared and then delightful trek above cliffs towards summit with eagles soaring overhead and lots of deer in the distance. Back via Chreagach.AndrewFinnimore17/06/2014
Second Marilyn on a cool and windy morning with hale showers with Jim Bloomer.Dugswell229/04/2013
Second hill, rained as we approached summit, windy visibility 20 metres. Soaked all the way home.iangalbraith09/09/2012
From B Creagach. Obvious and old looking cairn on summit. However the best bit is the cliffs which are well worth exploring. I decided to stay on the cliff top rather than the shoreline for the return to start. Lots of sea eagles.Martin R20/04/2012
From CarsaigBLACKHILL28/04/2011
MC JC DS DC. From Carsaig to Carsaig Arches and up through cliffs.Martin6603/01/2009
On final day of New Year week in Tobermory. With Martin66, JC & Shaky from Carsaig, followed the coastal path along to the Carsaig Arches. Then back E to the first major burn & followed that up steeply through the cliffs using the natural line of weakness. Wandered over to the summit & then back along the top of the cliffs picking up the path. Bagged Beinn Chreagach with Shaky & then continued NE to the road just SE of Cnoc a'Bhraghad. If you want to see the Arches & bag the Marilyns too, this is the way to do it: it's not at all obvious how to descend to the Arches from above.NotReallyABagger05/01/2007
From Carsaig. Path crossed policies with 3 streams. Narrow path on extreme edge of grass, slow progress. Vole. Mist. Very, very steep clamber up on all fours over greeny grassy bracken and heather slope for 600' to cliff edge. Path in mist by old fence posts on cliff edge and compass aimed at first hill. GPS was not working, with wet inside. After 20 minutes found cairn on highest point. 13.15. to Chreagacharranc31/08/2006
Round of Creachan Mor and Cruachan Min from Gleann Airigh na Searsain navigating through mist down to sea level by compass and identifying lochans.Eddie09/07/2005
