A great walk from Loch Moraig. Easy walking with fine views of Beinn a'Ghlo and Ben Vrackie on the track to Shinigag, which is a lovely green oasis in the wilderness. The track goes a long way up the hill and then spits you out in the middle of a massive bog. There's a sort of broad ridge that leads along to the hill, and snow made the going reasonably easy through the various peat hags, bog pools and lanky heather. This was followed by an easy climb on snow and the reward of great views from the summit. Back the same way. A fine sunset and the 2016 super moon gave wonderful light effects during the walk out.Gill12/11/2016
Dedicated to my Mum, which would have been her 91st birthday. Originally was going to use a MTB, but being nice and sunny I was enticed to walk it. Long route. Parked at Loch Moraig, to Shinagag, track faded so headed up Carn Dubh. Flat top. Descended North West and was met by 100+ deer running past. Very long return.Jhimmy04/06/2016

MC JC. Cycled from Loch Moraig along a decent track and dropped the bikes off just beyond Shinagag. Beautiful warm day with a cool breeze from the E. Lots of lapwings. Hard going from Meall Breac to the summit over bog and then deep spongy heather. 2h 30. First trip out after RTW trip.Martin6629/04/2007

Set off late from Loch Moraig (13:40) for what is quite a remote hill - and felt so, this late in the year. Clag down on summit. Last hour was walking down track in the dark.Aye Jimmy18/10/1997
Solo. Day trip from Stonehaven. Parked at bridge over Tarvie Burn on A924 road. Walked along the road and then up track past Tarvie House. At the end of the track is a bothy. I was now in mist and using compass. To Druim Mòr, Carn Dubh and hence to Ben Vuirich. The summit has a square-section trig point inside a stone shelter. Returned more or less via outward route.pwbellarby05/11/1995

From road end near Loch Moraig. On track and green trail, across river and 2 1/4 m on high level path behind Stac nam Bodach. Up over heather and long tiring contour round heather and hags. Arran chased a deer and returned panting heavily. Heather got shorter and slopes eased to top at 13.35. Misty views in heat.arranc25/07/1995
