Climbed with Richard on the way back from Aviemore after a great week at Elphin, Ullapool, Aviemore. Nice weather and great visibility with the exception of a couple of brief showers.amcculloch21/06/2019
Biked in, and then slunk round to the west ridge of An Dun, since the south ridge was a bit snowed up and looked a bit too tricky wearing trainers (mountain rescue police anyone?). Over the top and down the north east ridge (somewhat steep), across the river (easy) and up A'Chaoirnich by the grassy wedge opposite the footbridge (steeper still). Nice stroll over the plateau, and back to the bike for a quick blast down the hill. Proper mountains - steep and interesting.Gill28/04/2017
With M. Easier than An Dun, with path most of the way, but tiring after having already climbed one hill. Another exhilarating cycle back, very quick.douglas_easton28/04/2017
After a bike ride from Dalnacardoch, solo. Also went up An Dun. 5.5 hours for the whole trip.Phreerunner09/04/2017
Solo. Climbed up heathery slopes directly to summit.Dangerous Dave22/09/2016
Overnight circuit from Dalnacardoch. Followed track most of way to An Dun, but ford not possible to cross so took rough route to reach small dam and cross to climb S via S ridge of An Dun and visit both tops, camped at base of ridge. Light snowfall overnight then climbed Meall na Spianaig, A' Chaoirnich, the two possible tops of Bruthach na Creagan, returning S to climb Sron Odhar and rough traverse across lower section of Glas Choire and over broad ridge to Edendon Water and track of ascent route. Some sunshine and light covering of snow on tops on day 2.RobertP27/03/2016

After An Dun. The glaciated valley between the two Marilyns is archetypal i.e. like one out of a geography textbook.Martin R29/10/2014
Cycle in from the north down glen Tromie, what good views to the south and across Rannoch to he top of glen Coe, also the Cairngorms.Nozzer28/07/2014
cornice above usual ascent route necessitated crawling up steeply further north.oatcake11/04/2014
Bagged with An Dun from Edendon Bridge on A9. The walk in and out is long and hard on the feet! The hills are particularly steep also so the small size of the hills (relatively) shouldn't be under estimated.Columba26/08/2013

MC JC. With An Dun. From Dalnacardoch on the A9. Cycled against a strong N headwind and intermittent drizzle to Sronphgruig Lodge. Dropped bikes and climbed steep slopes in lee of wind to An Dun. Heavy legs! Traversed An Dun to N and climbed even steeper slopes up the side of Maol Creag an Loch. Narrowly missed treading on ptarmigan and 2 small chicks. One angry bird!Martin6617/06/2001

Cairngorm Club weekend meet based at Newtonmore. Alone. From Dalnacardoch Lodge following the Gaick Pass to near Sronphadruig Lodge. Ascended to the summit of Craig an Loch*. There is a medium sized cairn at the grid reference given in Munro's tables, 1974 edition, but the real summit is further north where there are two or three stones only to mark the spot. I descended to NW and crossed Allt Loch an Dùin by a bridge. Hence up NNE ridge to summit of An Dùn**. Descended to S to join Gaick Pass route back to starting point. Notes added in 2016: *1981 edition of Munro’s Tables has position of top changed to the highest point. 1990 revision of Tables has name changed to Maol Creag an Loch. Now called A’ Chaoirnich. **There are two summits on An Dùn, both of height 827m. Currently the north summit is given as the Marilyn and the south summit as the Corbett. Note added in 2017: DBIH now gives the south summit of An Dun as the Marilyn as well as the Corbett.pwbellarby07/03/1993
