Invergeldie CP> Creag Uchdag > Shee of Ardtalnaig [Ciste Buide a' Claidheimh] > Creagan na Beinne > Invergeldie CP. Blazingly hot until 12 noon, when increasing cloud cover made it bearable to walk without sweat dripping all down your body! Only then did I realise I'd set myself up for a long long walk.Jhimmy07/07/2018

from Coishavachan,parking on grass verge via dam and good steep track then easy trail NW to summit. Mostly dry underfoot. Great weather. Snow nearly gone. with Tess, 4.5 hrsniallp24/04/2016
CK SheilaS03/04/2016
Very good in the snow. I followed the track heading up from the Lednock dam. This continues above the fence, but either ran out or was buried in snow. I had a bit of a grovel through snow covered heather and peat hags, which was somewhat trying, but much easier higher up. It was misty, snowing and very white on the plateau, so I was pleased to find the fence that leads up to the top. If you ask me to relate the route to the pretty lines on the OS map, I would have little idea! Apparently, the fence twists and turns a bit on the way to the top, but dodging around in a near white out tends to conceal the niceties of the route.Gill16/01/2016
