With Sue from Ellivreid through tracks and onto Hill of Achmore and Muckle Lapprach the summit of Carryhabbie Hill. Another wet and windy day. Odd trig point capping. Returned same way.Frank02/09/2019
Done after the Graham. Clear and cool summit. Took shelter next to the wind break.Play2End22/06/2019
Parked just below Ellivreid and had a good walk- map reading across pasture paths and tracks before and after moorland ways. Up via Hill of Achmore, from where it looked as though we would get a soaking from the approaching cold front. The heavy rain only lasted half an hour and we were on a good track which led to the summit and Morton's Way. Views off every summit on a 10-day visit to the area, even this one as the cloud cleared. We followed Morton's Way a far as we could, giving a nice 2 km on the ridge. The only detraction on this very good walk is the views of the windfarm- reasonably distant, but it would spoil a walk up Glen Fiddich. Strictly following the route in the SMC Corbetts guide would save about 2 km but lessen the time on the nice ridge. With brother, Pete.pwheeler22/03/2019
From Ellivreid via Carn a' Bhodaich for Sharen's 1000th trig celebrations.Tony J06/10/2018
My 1000th extant pillar. Great day and a great weekend with friends old and new. Took a route from Ellivreid Farm up onto the ridge following grassy tracks and paths, fairly easy. I think it took about 2 hours to the top. Back via the same route.thejackrustles06/10/2018

Horseshoe from Ellivreid as described in SMC Corbetts guidebook.davidpettit8402/04/2018
Seen a herd of deer on way to summit. Snow on way up but largely clear on top. Cold wind started blowing from Cairngorms.187lenny18/02/2018
Weather fair.MountainMac30/09/2017
From tent at track crossing on Black Water to the east. gaiters kept me dry (just) on crossing after rain then track and heather to Cook's Cairn, just north of W to track and up good track to Corryhabbie Hill and on to Carn a'Bhodaich. Return by similar route bypassing the two intermediate summits. Good weather and pleasant route made easier by several sections of good track.dickscroop20/08/2017

With Cook's Cairn in perfect sunny weather. Access from east as north route now blocked by wind farm construction... 20 tough miles on the bike: lots of climbing and deeply rutted tracks. Some nice technical downhill in parts.nix_snilloc05/05/2017

Carried on to Cook's Cairn & The Bochelduchally08/04/2016
From Ellivraid, and back via Morton's road. It could be dismissed as a boring rounded lump, but that would be incredibly churlish. The hill has its own special charm, with a stunning plateau and great views. The walk back across the valley is interesting too. Good for wildlife - I saw an eagle and brown hares, inter alia.Gill23/03/2016
The tenant allowed me to park outside the farm at Ellivreid. A decent climb up Little Lallrach and Muckle Lapprach to the frozen summit in under 2 hours. Then headed for Cooks Cairn before a return the same way. 6 hours 15 minutes. Solo.bolton08/02/2016
Carn a'Bhodaich, Corryhabbie Hill, Cook's Cairn and Carn na Bruar from Allanreid car park. Bright blue skies, very little breeze and exceptionally warm for NovemberRobertP02/11/2015
Parked at the Allanreid car park then walked up the River Livet towards Suie then up to Carn na Bruar, Cook's Cairn, Corryhabbie Hill and Tor of Suie with good company on my journey of 25.4km.Dugswell221/10/2015
After Cook's Cairn.Lionel Bidwell21/10/2015
Another clear and warm day. From the north, starting at Bridgehaugh. Cycled up to 500 metre col and climbed both Corryhabbie and Cook. Tracks mostly good but degenerate higher up. Track almost to summit but using it contributed only to distance.Topographer5730/09/2015
From car park at Allanreid - Cook's Cairn - Corrhabbie Hill. Not intrinsically exciting hills but vast sense of open space.benalder28415/06/2015

with M&J. Cloud and sun, cloud disappearing. 4 hr walk, smartish ascent, leisurely down. (Could easily combine with B Rinnes). Very busy Corbett! Parked on grassy corner in road. Hazy views all round.niallp12/10/2013
Parked at lane junction just north of Elivreid. Took track through pasture which continues up Hill of Achmore. Then picked up little path over Little and Muckle Lappraich to join Morton's Way north to summit. Descended the same way. With niallp, KM and JK.Man of Kernow112/10/2013

2nd hill today, from bellandy.robertphillips10/08/2012
Parked at Ellivreid NJ268325, if the owner/farmer is around ask permission to park on the grass near a stream to the right of the farm buildings, the gentleman I spoke to was very pleasant and interested in my route. Straight-forward route across fields to Hill of Achmore, Little Lapprach and on to the summit via Muckle Lapprach. Cairn has a lid here!sotabagger06/02/2012

Trig revisit. From SW, Allanreid; took in a few other tops; descended via Achdregnie.RHW09/04/2011
Started out at the A920 and walked down and between Corriehabbie and Cairn's Cook there are a few burns to jump although nothing too strenuous. The ascent on the west face is fairly steep however the north ascent is fairly easystevie0422/05/2010
