Solo. A varied day, beginning with climb up to Corrie Fee and then a circular walk up to Craig Mellon (866m) via Bachnagairn.meltdiceburg17/08/2019
By the old stalkers path from AcharnGonk13/08/2019
From the visitor centre car park we followed the track alongside the west side of the burn towards Moulzie. Once out of the forest, from the bridge headed straight up to Cairn Broadlands, then easy walk to Craig Mellon (including the cairned top), over the ice and snow to West Corrie, and then SW to Craig Damff. The conditions were so good (no wind, lots of sunshine, easy-going snow) that we carried on over Cairn Damff, across Den of Altduthrie, and up the southern flank of Craigs of Loch Esk. From there it was a simple hop over to Crow Craigies (South Top) and a final summit at Cairn Lunkard. A snow-slide down to the Shelter and a homeward trek along the well constructed Jock's road through Glen Doll ended a superb day (about 6 hrs in total).summitter18/03/2019
Ascended from Glen Doll carpark - an excellent route, especially the stalker's path above the forest. At one time, before afforestation, this path must have started at the Lodge It is now underused, as walkers seem to ignore this hill. Care needs to be taken in cloudy conditions in picking up this path in descent as it is not well used and it starts on the plateau not the summit. the summit itself.JohnW02/08/2017
Started with the 874m top to NW which for some reason I mistakenly thought was a Corbett top! Then headed SW over Craig Damff and Cairn Mellon. Descent down NE edge of woods onto Jock's road was ok for return.dickscroop23/09/2016
