Overnighted in Granton. Headed up hill at 5:30am, summit at 7:15am and back at car for 8:30am. Parked to East near 384 spot height of Beum a''Chlaidheimh and ascended/descended cross country via Carn Allt Laoigh. Nice views of the Cairngorms and Ben Rhinnes.assynt_bob03/06/2017
With Peterb. Usual route from Auchterteang. Followed the track to the high point then headed up snow covered slopes to summit. Zero visibility on top and quite significant snow fall and wind. Retraced steps to return.bowlesy02/01/2017
Parked at the forestry access near Auchterteang and walked via the estate track before striking up to the summit for the final 500 metres or so. We had decent views for most of the way though visibility was poor at the summit. Ankle deep snow at the top didn't present any difficulties. With ChrisPeterb02/01/2017

Route from the South East. Hot sunny day, saw a lizard - could have been in the Med! Best to leave path at the wider bit where a new section has been added. Head ESE to the summit.callumorr19/07/2016
Parked beside gate of forest to the south. Grouse moor with gin traps. Followed track to Creag na h-Iolaire which was not really worth the hassle of extra bog trotrogreeves03/07/2016

From SE starting at 929261. The track now extends further than shown on the map but should not be taken any further, turn left off the track past a line of butts and stay south of some horrible peat hags.Topographer5704/10/2014

Parked on farm track (100m from road) to Auchterteang Cottage off B9007 – Up 4x4 past stalkers’ hut to about 600m – WSW across heather to summit. (Solo)gerrybowes30/07/2013
Good track most of the way up from Auchterteang, although the last stretch was boggy and not much fun. Lots of hares near the top. Very windy at the top. Weather closed in quickly and fairly wet by the time I got back to the car.killiedaft02/07/2013

Parked 200m south of track to farm, 8 and a half mile trek.bolton15/02/2013
From nr Auchterteang, park down track 100m room one car. Up track past shooting hut and onto Carn Eagan, then ridge to Glas Choire. Down east ridge to Cnapain a Choire, then over lower rocky tops of Iolaire and south top. Easy going and new tracks, back to car.nordicstar28/12/2012
Parked at entrance to block of forest, 300 m S of Auchterteang track. Space, but wouldn't advise on a working day. Nice over meadows, tried to follow interesting route over Creag na h-Iolaire but this didn't work well.I think it best to use the many hill tracks and accept this isn't such wild land anymore. Still a rough finish with some peat hags- and sight of a Hen Harrier. A race against worsening weather- no summit view. Usable weather, though.pwheeler21/06/2012
Started from roadside parking at NH 935289, through gates, field, across burn then WSW over rough ground to join track, which now goes right up to the ridge and then a short 500m ridge walk to the summit. New deer fencing no problem - handy gates etcmartin_hall06/02/2012

With a friend. From the B9007 Duthil-Ferness road at NH930266. Walked back along the road a short distance before going along a track past Auchterteang, which took us most of the way to the summit of Carn Glas-choire. Returned the same way.pwbellarby22/05/2011

Walked up from the road by Auchterteang. Good track that is cyclable at least half the way, and possible by Bike all the way. Locked gate at the farm trhta would have to be carried over.andy27/06/2009

Parked 3/4 m north of non existent space suggested by Andrew Dempster in his book. Track to Auchterteang, sheep gathering on grassy approach. By shooting hut on zig zag and plod over hags and soft springy heather for 1/2m uphill to top at 11.45.arranc23/07/2004

Date is first visit. Notes from later...(1) near-blizzard 25/12/99, no access problems Xmas morning but footprints suggest may have tried to follow; (2) windswept snowy plateau with a nice view. Heavy going with snow mostly not firm enough for easy walking. (1) tk via auchtertang to 898291 then open slopes; (2) Did it the hard way, from WNW, Balvraid (lodge being renovated), to take in the 635m Graham Top (and LR27 highpoint!). RHW25/12/1999
