Creag Ard, Beinn Dearg and Meall a'Mhuic from excellent car par at Innerwick. With FY.TRG31819/04/2023
Easy direct approach from start of track, east of trees, short dry grass most of the way, two gates so just one low fence to climb.alda07/04/2023
Circuit from Innerwick. Sunny, cold wind.thekirkie pirate20/04/2022
From Innerwick, exiting the forest at 560m then a moorland plod to the top, then the cairn. Descended by the West side of the forest leading down to Camusvrachan to bag Dubh Chnocan before a road walk back to the car.NormanW03/04/2022
From Innerwick in Glen Lyon, N from war memorial along the track to Loch Rannoch, branching up through the forest at NN586495 to the forest edge, then roughly E across moorland (helped by track near old fence line) to featureless summit area of Beinn Dearg, descending W following old fence line again, then turning S to follow ridge out to Creag Ard's featureless summit, descended steeply SW back to road via gate through new deer fence at NN590475kdbennett25/09/2021
The ascent of Corbetts Cam Chreag and Beinn Dearg from Innerwick. Also visiting, Meall nam Maigheach and Creag Ard. 26km with 1500m ascent in 8h 40m. (S)silveracorn_alan30/05/2021
A forestry track helpfully climbs from Pt. 196 half a km west of Camusvrachan to the SE flank of Beinn Dearg. Its quite a steep climb up the flank, but with pretty good terrain and the winter sun on our backs it quickly got us to the summit. We then followed the high ground to Creag Ard, the fresh snow adding interest to an otherwise quite haggy route. Descended down Creag Ard's narrowing SE ridge to the forest line, following the forestry fence back to the road and car. Just shy of 3hrs, coffee in the Red Deer cafe as reward.summitter06/12/2020
After Meall a'Mhuic. Direct descent to road is indeed steep and our route down just east of largest forestry plantation was rounded off 'nicely' with head high bracken. Probably much better to aim further west!Tony S01/08/2020
From Innerwick via the forest track rising through the plantation, an ATV track to the col, then up easy slopes to Beinn Dearg, back to the col and out Creag Ard, before descending steeply to the road a few hundred yards east of Innerwick.Nick Down112/06/2020

Took the tent down for an early start to beat the rain. Did not quite make it nut not as bad as forecast. From the church in Glen Lyon to Creag Aird; Beinn Dearg and over to Meall a Mhuic. Return track due S did not seem to exist though the two on either side clearly did.dickscroop24/08/2018

After ascending Meall nan Sùbh I went by car down to Glen Lyon and to point about NN606475 where I was able to take the car off-road. Solo. Followed what looked like an old path adjacent to a broken down wall, eastwards. It joined a track shown on my map, which winds up through trees (fairly young). I followed the track to its end and ascended the broad SE ridge to reach the summit of Beinn Dearg. Went westwards from the summit, then S, then SE to Creag Ard and descended down to the car.pwbellarby11/09/1993
