From Dalrigh, as by Pete R and others. With brother Pete J. Much nicer than I anticipated, with a start along a good forest road with some Caledonian forest. The promised S gale wasn't so bad, only on the summit was balance difficult and the dyke gave good shelter. Packed snow in the hollows on the moor, on approach. Good views if a little grey.pwheeler23/03/2020
From Dalrigh: over the railway, then along the track for a mile until the edge of the forest. Then up beside the fence, all the way to the top.Pete R16/11/2019
Started at Falls of Falloch. Took a track opposite the car park entrance till it ended at the railway line. Hopped over the railway fence and up the flank of Clach na Briton. Tough terrain, but aided by frozen ground and bright sunshine. Eventually got to Cruachan Cruinn then headed NE to Creagan Soilleir. Mostly frozen bog, as was the continuation to Fiarach, with a helpful old fence line to follow much of the way. Wanted to do a stretch of the West Highland Way as it was such a lovely day, so took in Craw Knowe en route, tracking the forest edge for a couple of kms. Once on WHW I went towards Glasgow, eventually getting back to the Falls of Falloch. Had to go past the Falls and cross the river by balancing on a useful fallen tree.summitter15/11/2019
Paul off up Ben Challum, so I walked up road to Dalrigh and headed up Fiarach. Superb views on cloud free, sunny day. Needless to say had a short wait for lift home.cjo12/05/2019
