From Beinn Tharsuinn, via Bealach Bhearnais. Across the Pollan Buidhe, then up the ziggiest-zaggiest path I know, much better than going straight up. Last 200m of ascent no path. West from the summit until easier going north then west around Creag an Ardaich back to the track, then back to Craig.Owen B08/07/2018

Meall an Fhliuchaird and Sgurr nan Ceannaichean from Craig. Simple walk to summit of Meallan Fhliuchaird, descent to col, then ascent of Sgurr nan Ceannaichean NW ridge (quite nice route), descent using stalkers path to Pollan Buidhe. Good views to Coulin Forest.RobertP03/07/2017

Moruisg + Sgurr nan Ceannaichean. Usual route, starting from layby on A890. Very wet underfoot. Broken cloud at top so views were not brilliant. Totally clear by the time I got back to car (typical). Nice walk though!tsharp21/04/2017

Cycled round from Craig; had planned to go up the stalkers' path, but didn't see it and instead took an off-piste route further east.Pete R05/08/2016

Lovely long ridge from the Munro to get to this. The route north back to the road is awkward and tiring.Play2End11/10/2014
Easy bag from the Munro Moruisg. Nice stalkers path down. Newly erected deer fences varound to protect new trees.Jhimmy27/06/2014
