Plenty of parking 500m north of Ballimore, from which a track leads SW. Before reaching a deer gate a normal gate can be scaled, enabling a pretty straightforward climb to the Creag Mhor ridge. There a couple of false tops before the actual summit s reached, then onwards to Creag an Fhiog. Superb views up and down Loch Voil make up for the boggy Bealach Driseach, from where the ascent to Ceann na Baintighearna takes you to drier ground. Turning south to Beinn Stachach (or whatever you choose to call it) takes you alongside a couple of derelict fences (why don't landowners remove these once defunct?) to a small stone cairn (which I rebuilt) just to the east of the trig. Its all down hill from here, taking in the East top before reaching the bridge over the Allt Fathan Glinne, and an ever expanding track back to the start. Met Pete R back at the car - always nice to say hello to a fellow bagger!summitter30/03/2019

Beinn Stacach and Creag Mhor plus a couple of sub-Tumps(Ceann na Baintighearna East Top,Creag an Fhiog)from parking at bridge E end Loch Voil. Walk along S of loch then good path to bealach Driseach and access to the hills. Good route, this avoids any significant boggy terrain.RobertP27/08/2017

Route as PWB. Overcast, mist lifted by lunch, great views, snow, cold wind, rained 10 mins from car.iangalbraith07/03/2017
From near Balquhidder to avoid the stalkers still apparently active on a misty late afternoon in January.amswanston06/01/2017
Solo. On road up Glen Buckie. Used gate to right of gate with notice 'Private Deer Park'. Up hillside, squeezed through fence, and over a minor top to NE to reach summit of Creag Mhòr. Highest point is on bare rock. Continued to Creag an Fhiog. Summit area grassy with no cairns. NW of two points about 15m apart looks like highest point.pwbellarby09/07/2015
From Beinn Stacath. Slow going down to the bealach, then up the knobbly west ridge. Back to the track down the south slope and then back to Ballimore to complete a round trip.Windy Corner25/05/2015

Morning ascent from Ballimore. Early rain cleared for good views.JohnW25/10/2003
A confusing early morning start for me, what with the clocks going back an hour, started with a surprisingly lovely morning drive up near Killin. I was joined this time by Brian, Stevie, Wyllie Senior and the two dogs, Jasper and Bruce. A early brush with some seriously worrying large cows provided a great deal of amusement, particularly with Jim 'Captain Caveman' Wyllie waving his stick and doing more to frighten Bruce than the nonplussed cattle. I make no apologies for the blurred photos of the cows as I was walking as quickly as possible at the time in case they remembered just how many times I'd been to Burger King in the past. The weather stayed fairly mild on the way up, but as we neared the top the cloud closed in rapidly and by the time I got there (10 minutes after everyone else), it was looking grim. We decided at this point that it was only going to get worse and the planned very lengthy day didn't materialise. However it had taken us 3 hours to get to the top so I was highlalanwyllie28/10/2001
Climbed before overnight stay in Callander.Man of Kernow127/07/2001
Parked in shade at Ballimore. Up track to gate in deer fence and up on grass. To a rusty deer fence by forest edge, new plantings since my 1976 map. Up to many visual horizons with three large drops over small peat areas to top at 16.00. 3 stones on sloping side of boulder sticking above the surrounding rough grass.
