A very wet day but reasonable visibility on the way up; instruments only on the way down. A different route making use of the new Great Glen Way High Route from Invermoriston, not yet on the map. Parking by Glencroft chalets on the Dalcataig road, near the GGW marker. Easy going, nice views and gets you higher up the hill than Allt na Criche. Left the path to head up the hill past Loch a'Mhuilinn, nasty and rough at first but improving somewhat after picking up a vague ridge line and a lot better when up on Burach itself.Gill06/06/2019
Burach revisit from SSE, car park, Great Glen Way, along ridge over the Dodd and SubHump, descent to GGW and car parkRHW24/05/2019
From Allt na Criche forest car park - not recommendable. Followed true R bank up to bridge & crossed to true L bank, upwards until exited forest. No sign of the reported ground trails up to circa 470m. The engineered path then goes NE to a high point below Carn an Doire Mhoir, so left it here and went direct for summit over 2+km and up 300+m of very rough ground, so bee-lined it to minimise the toil (2 hours). Same on the way down, aimed direct for the Allt na Criche and encountered even worse ground including lower-leg-breaking hidden trenches in the grass (unused forest planting grooves?). The only saving grace was that one was spared the additional torture of the rough ground being steep, to boot (mostly). It might be better to approach using the forest tracks on the N side up to circa 330m and then SE to the lochan, thus minimising the rough ground, as the highest ground is good going.Isbjorn26/12/2018
From A82 through woods and brambles; after 1st track, new forestry tracks to edge forest; on hill very tussocky but a good viewpointdmckeith02/11/2018
From the F/C Allt na Criche car park up the burn on to the hill, windy summit. Then on to Carn nan Dubh Lochan.NormanW20/10/2018
Visited with big J, good views up Glen Morrison towards Cluanie DamNozzer06/07/2018
Parked at the hall in Invermoriston and caught the bus to a Forestry car park near Fort Augustus. Followed the high route of the Great Glen Way before cutting up the hill to take in the Marilyn, Burach, at 607m. Took in the nearby trig to the NE before descending back to Invermoriston.BigJ06/07/2018
4 of 4: From Carn nan Dubh Lochan.ChrisR17/01/2017
Solo following the fore mentioned forestry path along Allt na Criche. Excellent path up through wood and a variety of small paths/tracks to higher ground then beline to obvious 6ft summit cairn. Ground quite easy going with slightly frozen turf and thin heather/ grass, possibly not as easy in summer with tall grass and following rain.N.Morters02/01/2017
Up the Allt na Criche path to the viewpoint then a beeline across the moor.Chris Peart28/10/2016
New path up left bank of Criche crosses bridge and continues up right bank and out of forestry. Continued up right bank to 470m then made directly for visible summit cairn.Topographer5719/09/2016
From Loch Ness and up the excellent Allt na Criche footpath, initially on west side of burn before crossing over and then immediately up a curving path onto open moorland. QUite heavy going but dry underfoot.Campbell Singer30/04/2016
Forestry CP, new track to 230m. Near burn at this point found an old stalkers/pont track good to 470m. Ridge then top and other peaks. Just under three hours inc additional tops.nordicstar28/03/2016
A nice woodland walk then open rough and boggy, though we found a good route.jenx28/03/2016
from forestry carpark up new path then open boggy ground to the top.robertphillips03/04/2015
Alltna Criche certainly solves the problem of getting up the steep side of the Great Glen. Then it is bash your own way to the summit, with the occasional help of deer tracks. Incongruous remains of café table just above where trail exits forest. End of year rain did not dampen my spirits, cos it is psychological boost when down to double figures in the Marilyn quest.Martin R31/12/2014

Path up through forest then a long hard slog up rough ground to the summit.AndrewFinnimore09/08/2013
Park at forestry car park by Allt na Criche. Forestry track up through woods by stream to a forestry road crossing. Turned left and followed road for a mile before turning up to the right where open moor was close to the road. Uphill by stream through head high bracken to a wild rough moor and deer fence. Uphill on tiring spongy deer grass and tussock to get across the stream where it formed from 3 smaller ones. Downs as well as ups to a shallow wide ridge leading uphill with many false horizons. Got sight of huge cairn 1 1/2 miles away. Stops every 1/2 hour for drinks to top at 13.05. 5' high cairn of sturdy stones predating walking era Dropped down to tree line looking for café tables mentioned in a 2008 Marhofn report. Found the cable reels and down by stream in a steep gorge as it entered the trees. Downhill using fence as hand holds, crossing stream many times to a faint path to forest road and to car. 5 1/4 hrs.arranc03/07/2009
Along waymarked track until deciduous trees appeared., then bearing for the summit.Eddie20/03/2005
