Circular route from north, loads of soft snow filling the groughs between peat haggs made for heavy going.Grinner15/12/2019
From Ardtalnaig, followed old track through wood to SE, leaving it at wood edge and heading up ridge to Tullich Hill, continuing on to Meall nan Oighreag and Creag Uchdag, dropping down to Allt a'Chartan and following the track on the N side E to a point about 1km SW of Dunan, contouring round to a point WSW of summit of Shee of Ardtalnaig, then up steep W slopes to summit, descending along ridge to peat hags, then more steeply down to the track back to Ardtalnaigkdbennett15/09/2019
Solo jog from below Craggan.amswanston19/05/2019
Park below Claggan after summiting went on to the Corbett and the Trig 716Nozzer13/05/2019
Chosen to make the best of winter after sun, and avoid freshly fallen snow, but a really fine walk. Parked by the gate across the lane to Claggan Farm, and took the zig-zag tracking up the NW flank of the Shee, which leads to the summit ridge by a green hut. Easy going over frozen peat hags and past the fascinating cleft and ancient landslip of Ciste Buide a'Claidheimh to the summit. Descended the S end of the ridge and took the track back through Gleann a'Chilleine. First rate views along Glen Almond, to Ben Chonzie and across Loch tay to the Lawers group.Nick Down120/01/2019
From the south, detouring off the Rob Roy way.summitter30/08/2018
A short walk for a very poor day for weather - wind and rain. Drove up track/road from Ardtainaig to gate (could have gone all the way to Dunan) then continued on track round to S side to avoid headwind and rain on ridge. An easy walk even in the conditions and would have been a very pleasant outing on a better day.dickscroop26/08/2018
Invergeldie CP> Creag Uchdag > Shee of Ardtalnaig [Ciste Buide a' Claidheimh] > Creagan na Beinne > Invergeldie CP. Cleft came as a suprise. Descended to far south instead of south south east to Dunan.Jhimmy07/07/2018
Overnight route from Ardtalnaig, parking just S of start of minor road. Crossed to N side of bridge then took route on N side of stream before heading up to Beinn Bhreac (fairly flat summit), SSE to beallach then steady climb to Creagan na Beinne. Descended S then steeply WSW to fork in track leading to SE end of Shee of Ardtalnaig. Steep climb to flat summit ridge, camped a little further along before descending N end of ridge to reach minor road back to Ardtalnaig. Mainly cloud, some rain and wind over the tops.RobertP22/07/2017

MC Alone. Superb blue sky day with snow on the ground.Martin6609/02/2015
W Jenx, able to drive to farm at Claggan where pleasant farmer/ghillie gave permission to park. Followed track easily to summit ridge then reasonable line through the hags to top. The cleft is amazing when yoy stumble over it! Back same way although can drop off SE end and follow other track back to Claggan.nordicstar22/09/2014

From ArdtalnaigBLACKHILL06/04/2012
For a hill with three names I expected a bit more complexity. For a while with the hares and peat groughs I thought I was on Kinder Scout. However the roaring stag reminded me I was not.Martin R25/10/2011
lots of snow, but thawing. Day improved so lunch in the sun with fine vantage over Dunans. Climbed via track to ridge. Return via G.a' Chilleine track. Red kite, toads, frogs, curlew, ptarmigan, blue hares. with John and Markniallp20/03/2011
Ascent from road-head below Claggan. Room to park one car before gate (do not park beyond), with bigger parking area down hill. Came back via Gleann a' Chilleine. Impressive landslip feature on E side of hill.Man of Kernow120/03/2011
round of creag uchdag, shee of ardtalnaig, and creagan na beinne from glen lednock.robertphillips05/02/2011
From Ardtalnaig along right of way to Dunan. Traversing the ridge south to north is surely best as it is gently downhill with fine views across Loch Tay.Phaedra29/01/2011

From Ardalnaig. Tarred road for 1 1/2 miles and well maintained bulldozed track on zig zags for another 1 1/2 miles. Hares everywhere still in winter coats. Uphill over heather to ridge and 1 1/2 mile trudge to top at 11.50. Arran's 250th Marilyn!arranc06/04/2002

With friend. Up track S of Claggan and along the summit ridge. We descended SE and walked out on the track through Gleann a Chilleine. There was some lying snow. White out conditions at times.pwbellarby18/04/1999
