Solo from from Dougarie, up Loch Iorsa then south ridge to summit. Down via Cnoc Breac & Glen Scaftigill.Chris Mac23/02/2018
With Gill Stephens on her 800th marilyn. From Dougaire on a wet day with cloud on the hill. Ford in spate, wading through at calf-depth - a fine start to the walk! Faint track from there to the top. On to Ceann Reamhar over rough boggy ground - and a re-crossing of the stream 2.7k NNE, this time at knee-depth.jonglew20/11/2017
A short walk in the rain for my 800th Marilyn, enlivened by the ford being a bit deeper than usual.Gill20/11/2017
From Dougarie. After the ford up to Loch Sail Chalmadale over rough tussocky terrain. At the loch a faint track towards summit but not an atv track to be seen. The summit gives marvellous views to neighbouring hills and out to Kintyre.NormanW19/11/2017
Solo from parking spot at Dougarie. An ATV track starts about 100m up from the Iorsa road at 898382. It disappears beyond Loch Sail Chalmadale but reasonable going to the summit. 3hrs 40 return.bolton17/11/2017
Just enough time for this fine hill before dusk. Red sun dipping behind Kintyre. Lovely.Alex C17/11/2017
A long day starting with this one and going across to Beinn Bhreac and Meall nan Damh. The initial footpath leading to the track to the boathouse was incredibly boggy and had to take off boots to wade across one of the burns which was in spate. Took direct line up from Boathouse to summit.AndrewFinnimore05/09/2017

Nice walk up Glen Iorsa then u grassy SW ridge.Topographer5703/06/2016
up from dougarie lodge,good track then atv tracks to the top.robertphillips15/05/2016
2nd hill of 9 today on a route from Whitefarland point to Catacol bay, climbing Ceann Reamhar and then breaking out of the forest to open moorland. I decided not to lose the height I gained and so instead profiled round close to Dubh Loch (almost stepping on an Adder on the way) to drop my 70 litre rucksack next to a large granite outcrop at the foot of the granite cliff-face just east of Mullach Buidhe. I then went solo using the ridge South of Dubh Loch and the lower slopes of Cnoc Breac to contour round to climb upto the summit of Sail Chalmaldale from the North. Re-traced steps to retrieve rucksack.Dazingdale10/05/2016
Cool and sunny walk from track to north of Dougrie Lodge. Then track then quad track towards lock then up steeply to summit.Dugswell223/04/2016

Long walk from Dougrie to Catacol with day Graham Foreman on a sunny, light wind and perfect visibility day. Some tracks on the hills. Dreadful trackless descent into Fairhaven from Meall nan Damh.alexmaclennan29/09/2013
Solo Uisdean2515/07/2013
Cycled 12 1/2 miles over the String via Machrie to Dougarie. Left bike by the Lodge followed a diverted signed path at the back of the big house to rejoin the track leading to Loch Iorsa. Uphill over rough stuff and even worse stuff 0 1 14 miles of step by step deer grass where you were never sure what was going to be 2' below the visible level. Awful! Two boulder runs still in mist last 1/2 mile over pleasant purple heather. My last Marilyn on Arran. 30m - 3,200'- 8 1/4 hrs.arranc31/07/2010
From Dougarie. On the track burns needed fording and a fight through boggy ground after the boathouse.Eddie26/10/2009
From Dougarie Lodge, walked up Glen Iorsa until clear of trees then straight up slopes (saw an adder) past wee lochan to nice grassy/rocky summit and cairn.Aye Jimmy31/07/2009
