locked gate on bridge looked difficult so went up forest track by Eas Urchaidh. top part of forest was confusing so included some fighting with trees!IanHHill19/05/2017
From tent in Glen Strae to the west initially up track through forest then straight up to West Top. Wind blew me off my feet at the summit so struggled on to main top in cloud and rain as well as wind and abandoned plans for two further tops to the north.dickscroop21/04/2017
Over locked bridge and up fenceline. Back down FC track.daviemore07/10/2016
Didn't realise there was a locked gate at bridge at Catnish. - Too much for me to climb. Drove a couple of miles to bridge at Eas Urchaidh waterfalls and used alternative route in SMC Grahams guidebook. - Forest track going north, then west, then south to Lochan Coire nam Thoraigh. Had an awful job getting up through trees to ridge. Easier coming down as firebreak was easy to spot. Didn't visit it, but 3rd cairn in a western direction, on a definite wee hump looks higher than summit cairn. [The first one I came to from Cruach nan Nighean.]russell6110/04/2016
With Vic. Would not describe the locked bridge gate as an easy climb. It repulsed us. Went to next c/p & up through forest over the Nigheans.ngthack20/03/2016
Did after Beinn Mhic-Mhonaidh. Stags roaring.duchally17/10/2015
I'm clearly not as athletic as some - didn't fancy climbing the padlocked gate. Instead went in from Eas Urchaidh, a little further but straightforward.nicolajane08/06/2015

1 OF 2 today from catnish as per graham route.robertphillips18/04/2014
Bridge gate padlocked so need to use the 'via ferrata' to get round the side. From there it is follow a rather boggy stalker's path to beyond the deer fences the PYO routes to the various tops. Very wet finish.Martin R09/03/2014
Parked as others at Catnish, used bridge (easy climb locked gate) to cross river in spate.Bank of river to new deer fence, then track to first bend onto hill. Over deer fence and rising contour around first ridge, then bearing to top. Continue onto Donachain main summit, then down over three of tops on fine ridge.nordicstar29/12/2013
