Day 2 of a 2 day round of 9 tops north of Loch Rannoch from Durnish bothy: Creag a Mhaigaaidh(G); Gualann Shelleach(Gt);Beinn Mholeach(C) and back to tent. Shorter of the two days, had tiome to walk out but stayed put as train booked for following day.dickscroop14/05/2018
A nice walk, but the weather was vile, a combination of strong winds with heavy rain that was trying to be snow but not managing it. Amazingly, the visibility was excellent all day. The massive flat boggy area at the top of Loch Garry is really something special, but what a shame the Cairngorms National Park is unable to protect it from a a hydro scheme and new bulldozed tracks.Gill27/04/2017

Craeag a' Mhadaidh NN 633650 S/F NN 645731 2nd trip down Loch Garry to climb this hill. Drove to loch side then wind assisted trip down looch for overnight camp at 622666. Very cold night but dry. Awful navigation error, didn't check map before setting out and crossed river needlessly, realised mistake at about 624675. Fortunately this gave a straight, if boggy route direct to hill rather than planned use of longer track. No cairn at summit. Dry day with sunny periods, light wind and high cloud. Returned to tent via path and found bothy (not MBA) at 617670, Duinish, not too bad, definitely useable. Returned to camp and packed up. Very pleasant paddle back down loch with no wind at all, decided to camp at loch side and get out in morning. Very cold night and snow showers in morning so brought car down road to get out.John Young01/04/2016

From Dalnaspidal (A9), cycled to end of Loch Garry, then on to bridge and up the long east ridge. No cloud above 400m when I set out but gradually higher cloud moved in from the west and hit the summit at about the same time as me.Topographer5702/11/2015

Round of Stob an Aonaich Mhoir, Beinn Mholach and Creag a'Mhadaidh from Killchonan.Eddie14/04/1995
Solo. Day trip from Stonehaven. From near Annat (Loch Rannoch). I passed over the summits of Plucach and Sgurran Dearg before reaching the summit of Beinn Mholach. I descended south and joined a track (not shown on 1:50,000 map) and which is a continuation of one shown on the map which lies to the north of Aulich Burn. This was followed to 608604 where a path (not marked on map) was followed down the tongue of land between Aulich Burn and Allt a Chreagan Odhair. At the bottom I found a bridge across Allt a Chreagan Odhair. I crossed the bridge and went down the track to the main road. I went along the road back to Annat.pwbellarby09/10/1994
