Started from the telephone box on the B851 and down the private estate road towards Dunmaglass Lodge. Before reaching the lodge we took a left fork along the Turbine Track to a bridge over the main river. A loose stone path gave us access through a woodland to the north west flank of Beinn Mheadhoin, from which it was simply a battle against the strengthening wind to the summit. Next went SE down to rejoin the Turbine Track, shoes and socks off to cross the snowy/icy Allt Cailtidh, then to the even snowier and windier Beinn Bhuidhe trig. Headed home via Garbhal Mor, following a fence line most of the way. Forest rides eventually enabled us to get back onto the B851 - but not a recommended route.summitter29/02/2020
From the wind farm track and through the lovely Dunmaglass estate. Nice to see so many raptors.Peterb21/12/2019
From the phone box at 607245. A fast walk to the wind turbine bridge at 595219 before heading up the fence line on the north side of the forest and then directly to the summit. Headed to Creag a'Chliabhain via the dam. Solo.bolton14/02/2019

Circuit including Creag A'Chliabhain. From telephone box along the wind farm track to the second bridge. A new forest track up to 1/3rd height, over deer fence and on easy ground to summit with dusting of snow. Headed directly towards dam as new track extended along the valley to climb Creag A'Chliabhain after lunch and small snow squall.N.Morters01/01/2017

From the road head by telephone box. Followed the estate road then becomes the wind farm road, lovely. Deep in snow though so the hill destroying equipment is silent and we walk all the way in across the burn to GR 506217, up the wood edge and straight to summit. Odd trig like cairn nearby. Back down same way and across the plain and dam to gain NE ridge of Creag a' Chliabhain.nordicstar15/01/2016
A great snowy day. Shooting party on the hills was the only noise. We sneaked round them. Such a pretty area. Shame about the windfarm.jenx15/01/2016

Came from bagging 'Creag a'Chliabain', went up track round the back of hill gaining a lot of height before cutting up the side towards summit. Blowing a gale today despite the sunshine! Back down towards Dummaglass lodge over very steep rocky hillside.Columba05/07/2013
