|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.||amcculloch||21/06/2019|
|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.||Gill||28/04/2017|
|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_easton||28/04/2017|
|After a bike ride from Dalnacardoch, solo. Also went up An Dun. 5.5 hours for the whole trip.||Phreerunner||09/04/2017|
|Solo. Climbed up heathery slopes directly to summit.||Dangerous Dave||22/09/2016|
|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.||RobertP||27/03/2016|

|Cycled in from the A9, to do this A'Chaoirnich and An Dun. Managed to find the little bump 5m west of the small cairn.||Robinho08||08/11/2014|
|After An Dun. The glaciated valley between the two Marilyns is archetypal i.e. like one out of a geography textbook.||Martin R||29/10/2014|
|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.||Nozzer||28/07/2014|
