From layby just along from Craiganour lodge, up track and then off right at highest point. Beautiful day, clear blue skies, chilly wind and good views. Then on to Beinn Mholach;further than looked but worth it for views this time!MichaelF16/05/2019

I left Rick's nice new cairn intact as it is not on the summit rock.alda24/05/2016
Parked at entrance to Craiganour Lodge, cheekily walked past the lodge to avoid construction work on the track north to the hill. Work is in fact in the far glen so it's only vehicular traffic you need to watch for. Did the neighbouring Hump first from track then easily the Graham. Spent half an hour rebuilding the scattered cairn blocks as best could. Some stones are huge so many folk were involved in its destruction. Walk back out uneventful on a clear sometimes showery day w Jenx.nordicstar20/05/2016
Easy walk up the track, then nipped up the hump before this one. Region 5 complete.jenx20/05/2016
Bagged while doing the through route between Dalnaspidal and Kinloch Rannoch. Good clear views all round. Bright sunshine with a cold wind led to unintentional sun burn. Should know better.BigJ14/05/2016

Summit cairn had been destroyed although a lower one close by was untouched. I put some of the rocks back.duchally28/04/2016
The cairn has gone! We cycled from Aulich, along the good track as far as NN622647. The track is currently a construction site, apparently until June 2016. But this was a Saturday so there was only a little Hydro traffic.Pete R19/03/2016
Day trip from Stonehaven. Solo walk. From a little east of Aulich. Up the estate track that skirts Craiganour Lodge on the west side. First to Creag a’Mhadaidh where I stood on the ground 2m N of cairn, which surveying shows to be the highest point. It’s a nice little cairn for a fairly modest hill, built with biggish stones. Continued to Gualann Sheileach, taking as straight a line as is feasible, followed by Creagan Odhar.pwbellarby20/09/2015
