From Blairnamarrow up pretty much non existent path to shoulder then summit. Returned by the top with its mast and ski tows down to track and along road.SS26/07/2020

From Blairnmarrow via Lurg Mheadhonach. Snowfall 2 days ago meant a trek through deep snow and the ascent took 3h instead of est. 2h in snow-free conditions. It was very worthwhile for being in a snow covered landscape, very beautiful, on a still, sunny day. With Pete. See Beinn a' Chruinnich log for return route.pwheeler18/03/2019
Had to double back to Lagganlia for my boots that day. Good track up to the summit from Allargue though.iansm10/11/2018

A 7.30 start for a morning walk and the opposite side of the A938 in the afternoon. From ski station up ski slope to Beinn a'Chuinaich, Carn Ealasaid, Toim Buirach, Liath Bheinn, Carn Bad a'Ghuail and back to start by-passing first two tops.dickscroop24/08/2017
An improvised walk late in the day, after I found myself without the maps for various hills I had planned, and unable to find a map seller in Dufftown. From the Lecht via the seagull colony to Beinn a'Chrunnich, then to Carn Ealasaid and back. Stay high on the intervening ridge to escape the clutches of the peat hags. And, for variety, walk up or down the mountain bike route from the Lecht, avoiding more bogginess.Nick Down128/07/2017

A nice enough walk from Corgaff castle, but it was disappointing to find that I could have bagged this hill on my mountain bike. I did a short part of the walk off piste and found the most amazing mixture of plant life and lichen, incredibly colourful. Thick mist and drizzle evaporated my enthusiasm for an extended walk, so I scuttled back down in time for very early tea and cake.Gill18/03/2016
