We cycled from the A9 to Sronphadruig, dumped the bikes and headed up a snow-capped Am Meadar. Pretty steep going, but just a foretaste of the day. Back down to a dam crossing SSW of An Dun. Came across a deer marksman who fired a couple of shots as we headed up the steep south slope - a narrow path helps for most of the way. Over An Dun's two tops then veered west to the Coire na Craoibhe and its spectacular icy waterfall. Tough climb onto Bruthach na Craoibhe as the wind picked up and the snow got deeper so headed down the stalkers path to Sidhean Coire an Dubh-chadha, a nice wee bump. Walked back to the bikes on the track towards Loch an Dun, but rather than get wet feet we opted for the east side, where a small trail gave some help over rough terrain.summitter07/02/2020

Overnight circuit from Dalnacardoch. Followed track most of way to An Dun, but ford not possible to cross so took rough route to reach small dam and cross to climb S via S ridge of An Dun and visit both tops, camped at base of ridge. Light snowfall overnight then climbed Meall na Spianaig, A' Chaoirnich, the two possible tops of Bruthach na Creagan, returning S to climb Sron Odhar and rough traverse across lower section of Glas Choire and over broad ridge to Edendon Water and track of ascent route. Some sunshine and light covering of snow on tops on day 2.RobertP26/03/2016

Bagged with A'Chaoirnich from Edendon Bridge on A9. The walk in and out is long and hard on the feet! The hills are particularly steep also so the small size of the hills (relatively) shouldn't be under estimated.Columba26/08/2013

Cairngorm Club weekend meet based at Newtonmore. Alone. From Dalnacardoch Lodge following the Gaick Pass to near Sronphadruig Lodge. Ascended to the summit of Craig an Loch*. There is a medium sized cairn at the grid reference given in Munro's tables, 1974 edition, but the real summit is further north where there are two or three stones only to mark the spot. I descended to NW and crossed Allt Loch an Dùin by a bridge. Hence up NNE ridge to summit of An Dùn**. Descended to S to join Gaick Pass route back to starting point. Notes added in 2016: *1981 edition of Munro’s Tables has position of top changed to the highest point. 1990 revision of Tables has name changed to Maol Creag an Loch. Now called A’ Chaoirnich. **There are two summits on An Dùn, both of height 827m. Currently the north summit is given as the Marilyn and the south summit as the Corbett. Note added in 2017: DBIH now gives the south summit of An Dun as the Marilyn as well as the Corbett.pwbellarby07/03/1993
