from Cille Choirill church. for a change, I was faster than the Guide book.IanHHill23/07/2019
Parked at the church. Half day, short round trip on a relatively unremarkable hill but well worth it for the expected stunning grandstand views south and the rather less obvious views west.benalder28430/03/2019
Parked at the church - 307813. Just over 2 hour return in remarkably warm february conditions. Good underfoot in reasonably dry conditions. Solo.bolton15/02/2019
MC A quick return trip in 1 hr 55. Dry, cool and overcast. Summit clear. Great views westwards down Glen Spean.Martin6624/11/2018
A lovely walk from the church parking area. Ratio of reward to effort very high. Superb views and wonderfully easy going underfoot.Gill12/05/2018
Started on track from main road immediately north of Tulloch station to avoid 60mph winds. Initially by being in the trees and later by virtue of walking down wind. In the event wind not too bad except on very top where could barely stand.Down more or less due souith to road picking edge of trees as a guide lower down - no problems.dickscroop17/03/2018
A quick up and down from the carpark of Cille church.Peterb14/09/2016
Parked in Church car park NN306813 along path beside graveyard (spooky in the mist) hopped over fence in corner where plastic flowers had been dumped,across field of sheep to fence along the line of this to gate & headed straight up to cairn near trig point.rogreeves26/03/2016
Parked Cille Choirill church then uphill towards the ridge and mist to find a bit of a soggy track to gain the summit on a cold grey day with Chris and Lionel.Dugswell221/03/2016

1 of 3: From Cille Choirill CP at Roybridge.ChrisR03/12/2015
Very snowy day with Rick Jen and Brian. Stopping at Roy Bridge to celebrate my birthday and retirement and Ricks birthday. From Cille Chorille church up over the small top next to it and up the wide ridge to Creag Dhubh. Low visibility all the way and trailbreaking by the others through the soft snow. Once on top huckled down for some food and the cloud cleared and we were blessed with an inversion with views across to mountain tops in the distance poking up through it. Also had our own ice or fog halo and when Rick and I stood on the top we had a brocken spectre too. What a first day of retirement, will take some beating.Mark T17/01/2015
As Viewfinder, nice route. Parked at Coire Choirill church up SW ridge, in deep snow. 4 of us to break the trail, misty day, intermittent sunsine. No visibility of the false summits, just a very frozen Vanessa on top and four baggers. Back same way after seeing a Ice Halo and tops of Grey Corries in teh distance, great if cold day.nordicstar17/01/2015
although the map shows a track and the graham book mentions it as well, it is pretty much gone. Furthermore most of the hill side has been replanted with small trees and is now covered with loads of square holes, so better option is to head left of the chopped down forest, and go along the grassy slopes next to the river up the hill. much better ascent, we came down that way.tallblond14/06/2014
With M. Easy climb but very windy.douglas_easton24/03/2014
with renee from bohenie.robertphillips29/09/2013
Parked car at Bohenie, followed track to bottom of SW shoulder and then up the levels and layers using an overgrown quad bike track. Incredibly humid, little breeze and many many flies of all kinds made the climb difficult, worth it for summit with amazing views.Columba07/07/2013
Creag Dhubh (NN 322824) S/F NN 293828 Another perfect day, once again wall to wall sunshine and not too cold - wind much lighter than 2 days ago. No problems but a few fences to negotiate.John Young01/04/2013
Easy ascent from Coire Choirill church up SW ridge. Morning cloud soon burned off to leave a cloudless sky and snowcapped Munros visible in all directions.Topographer5725/02/2013

Solo. From Bohenie in Glen Roy. Initially walked on the path SE beside a wood and then up the very broad ridge of Creag Dhubh. Returned more or less the same way.pwbellarby27/08/2000
On east side of Glen Roy. 2 miles of unpleasant deer grass and blueberries following very faint path before a 2 mile trudge with many false horizons to top. 13.50.arranc07/07/2000
