On the way back from Beinn Dronaig to Attadale, left bike on 300m contour. Including the tumps would have made for a nicer descent but ran out of time and capacity.Topographer5727/06/2019

Super little hill. Well positioned to view the big ones all around. Used unsightly new hydro track and then the bothy path which is marked by a couple of cairnstrimarc227/05/2019
Same as pwbellarby route via new hydro track. Not easily seen route back on to stalkers path - ? Needs sinposting, will contact Scotways. Up by gully to East of summit. Down via pwbellarby lochan but would not recommend this if snowy or wet as fairly steep and slithery.willyross05/04/2019
Walked in from Achintee on a good track to NG 9845 3876. From Creag Dhubh Mhor W Top, and on to the NE Top.jonglew12/09/2018
Solo. From Strathcarron Hotel/Railway Station along track that starts beside the level crossing and which serves a run of the burn power system. About 100m beyond where this track crosses Allt Feadan Dhùghaill on a bridge is the present start of a path that leads up to the north of Creag Dubh Mhòr. The start of the path is marked by a cairn. Followed the path and then navigated in thick mist up the break in the cliffs. Took in Creag Dubh Mhòr NE Top, which has a small cairn. Mist lifted briefly to give wide ranging views. Continued in mist to the summit of Creag Dubh Mhòr. Nice to have such a well defined rocky summit. Went W to lochan at NG987404 and followed the burn from the outfall down to join path used on ascent, now clear of mist.pwbellarby04/08/2018

Afternoon walk to this Graham with DW, SL and PM. Wet, cloudy, windy and a rather dull hill!AGWilliamson31/12/2016
7th of 21 summits on a 14 hour overnight bagging adventure on the shortest night. Left Attadale at 6.45pm then 15 kms of lonely rough grass and bog over 11 assorted tops to reach Bendroniag Bothy at 11.15pm in rain and last of daylight for a 4 hour rest / 'sleep' on wooden floor in thin sleeping bag. Left at 3.30am at first light for 10 more tops and 18km back to Attadale for 9.00 am. Rained on and off for 80% of the time which had not been part of the plan.Chris Pearson21/06/2016

W Jenx from Achintee. Blustery cold day, snow showers. Biting wind. Used stalkers path to gain high ground to NE of summit and over the main top. Collected an assortment of other summits. Stayed dry yet cold wind persisted till return to car.nordicstar02/01/2015

Some years earlier during an epic Corbett bagging trip involving London sleeper trains, hangovers, full pack peak bagging & a very midgey Maol-bhuidhe bothy, I'd looked at Creag Dubh Mhor on the way out, but the thought of beer in the Strathcarron Hotel won out... Now from the house in Strathcarron with J & Shaky, took the more N of the two stalkers paths from Achintee (now a bulldozed hydro scheme track unfortunately). Followed this to due N of summit & then wound way up round crags to summit. Deer everywhere. Nearly trod on a very young calf. A superlative view E into the Monar hills & beyond. Over very rough ground to Carn Geuradainn & then descended SW to join the more southerly stalkers path back to Achintee. These days, probably best done from the S due to the hydro impact, sadly.NotReallyABagger25/06/2014

On the way back to Achintee after Beinn Dronaig. The footpath traverses the lower slopes of the hill so decided to make the diversion to the top. Conditions had improved so the views were very good.bowlesy27/08/2013

Parked in Achintee in hard standing next to a house (with permission). Over deer fence onto WDP by river as described by A Dempster. Over hillock, turned left at junction of paths over moor to a side river, 2 small waterfalls. Up to small col and ridge. Detours to avoid 6' crag lines and after a drop, to top at 11.45.arranc08/08/2005
