Parked by Inverchaolain church and took standard route N via Sron Dearg to reach Cruach nan Capull. Started raining at this point. Continued to Leacann nan Gall and descending close to Beallach na Sreine to join track down Inverchaolain Glen. Breezy, and warm for FebruaryRobertP23/02/2019
Parked at Inverchaolain church. Followed the track past Stronyaraig and up Inverchaolain Glen. At 102765 (Just over one mile and 500 feet altitude) an ATV track leads easily and quickly to the ridge. 2 hours to the summit and then on to Leacann nan Gall.bolton06/09/2018
MMC walk with Fraser, Malcolm and new guy Cameron. Dry overcast day. We came up the track to Leacann na Gall and onto Cruach na Capull. Retraced our steps when we met Fraser who made it to the top. 6 hours.alexmaclennan08/07/2018
Solo. Parked at the entrance to the churchyard at Inverchaolain. Went north on the road a little way and then past Stronyaraig. Walked north to go up the hillside to Sron Dearg. It was very hot and the going tough as there was much bracken and heather. I joined an ATV track that rises up from Coire nam Bruach. I wish I had known about this track as it would have provided an easier route up the hill. I followed the track north up the ridge to reach the trig point at point 572m and the summit of Cruach nan Capull. Returned over Leacann nan Gall.pwbellarby07/06/2018
After Beinn Ruadh then lunch at Benmore Garden café, did this as per SMC guide from Corrachaive path start on A815. Worked fine, but path in 2nd half of forest is not so much overgrown as very boggy. Just beginning to clear at summit.IanHHill15/05/2018
From Inverchaolain via Sron Dearg and south ridge.Winterfloodian29/04/2018

Up via Inverchaolain Fm and Black Craig. Bitter wind chill on summit. Descended into the glen then took a lower route than the marked track, more interesting, several fords and foot bridges, albeit the marked track would have been easier. By the way the call box shown on the map at 085772 is an empty shell.Topographer5726/02/2018

With Jenx. Parked at Inverchaolain church, saw a red squirrel carrying a young kit in its mouth. Direct up the long ridge behind farm, rough going lower down till the ATV track comes in. Sadly mist above 450 m so limited vieee. Onto black crag next.nordicstar27/05/2016
Probably a good circuit on a finer day.jenx27/05/2016
