Clockwise circuit of the 9 tumps round Glen Sletdale. Started too late at 9:30am so descent off last one (Creag a' Bhodaich) in the dark.Dave McG27/12/2018
A glorious sunny day with good snow on the tops. The standard route from Glen Loth. Parked by the cattle grid, climbed the padlocked deer gate, up the ATV track, and then snow to the summit of Beinn Dhorain. Descent into Glen Sletdale, then on to Carn Garbh. Down to Coire Riabhach, keeping to the N side of the stream for an easy dry shod crossing of the Sletdale Burn. Deer tracks back to the track.Gill05/04/2018
From Glen Sletdale via track. River crossing am tricky but near some old shielings. Up the main nose left of the crags and round the plateau to summit in persistent rain..not so good. Cloud skimming the summit. Unfortunately river now impassable at the same spot so trudged down the opposite side via some steep sections to the bridge. Soggy.N.Morters04/03/2017
2 of 10: From South Top.ChrisR29/01/2017
Ascended from the northwest after Beinn Dhorain. Descended south ridge into Glen Sletdale and picked up deer paths and ultimately track back to Glen Loth Road to continue onwards to Beinn Mhealaichraffemeister22/08/2016
Via Glen Sletdale which very beautiful with spring showers and sunshine. Fantastic rainbow at the top.jenx27/03/2016
Up Glen Sletdale w Jenx using good track shown on map. Some sppear to have cycled but its not that good! Track extends further than shown as good ATV line. Then deer tracks across the wide strath to cross river, note could be a challenge in wet weather, was in good flow here when we crossed in dry spell. Up onto the nose of the proper Carn Garbh nose before cutting off on direct line to summit. Last 1km difficult wet and haggy ground which spoilt an otherwise lovely approach walk. 3 hrs.nordicstar27/03/2016
Solo jog, on a very wet and windy round of the three Marilyns.amswanston04/01/2016

On clockwise circuit from Beinn Dhorain to Carn Garbh. Met AB + EY on summit. Descent E, then SSE down ridge above crags. River crossing in Glen Sletdale could be problematic in wet weather. Track for final 3/4 mile to road.Minto08/06/2014
Track up Glen Sletdale. Boots off to cross river.AndrewFinnimore06/04/2014
With Yeni and JH. Up by the wind turbines which make a good shelter from the wind!!!Meagaidh08/11/2012
From Glen Loth as part of a circuit of Glen Sletdale.Alan Moore22/06/2010
From the minor road in Glen Loth, with MoraBLACKHILL26/05/2010
from Uarie. Very easy drop to valley floor for 2 miles on a moor with no side streams and no gullies or streams to cross. Over the river on mossy stones and fairly steeply up on heather to move to right on the horizon and across the top of a stream above the first peat hag, then a flatter rise for 200' to broad flat top at 13.30. Groups of 25 and 15 deer moved off N as I approached. Man and girl came up - first people I've seen on a Marilyn for some while. They were looking for sites of plane crashes and had come up from SW. 6 1/2 hrs to car.arranc24/05/2009
