Walked in from the A9 along the usual Mall Cuaich approach then up An Sguabach/Creag Liath (ATV alongside grouse butts after track stops) then across country to the Caochan a'Chulaibh and contoured round to the rather overgrown stalkers' path. Lovely wee top - presume it was formed by a glacier outflow stream - with grand views of Gaick though they are better from higher up the path. Worth following the stalkers' path up as it weaves skilfully through the heather and gains height effortlessly. Cut over to Coire Chais and then up Carn na Caim and down to the track at NN666843 and out. 6hrs car to car.StueyB17/05/2023
We cycled from the A9 to Sronphadruig, dumped the bikes and headed up a snow-capped Am Meadar. Pretty steep going, but just a foretaste of the day. Back down to a dam crossing SSW of An Dun. Came across a deer marksman who fired a couple of shots as we headed up the steep south slope - a narrow path helps for most of the way. Over An Dun's two tops then veered west to the Coire na Craoibhe and its spectacular icy waterfall. Tough climb onto Bruthach na Craoibhe as the wind picked up and the snow got deeper so headed down the stalkers path to Sidhean Coire an Dubh-chadha, a nice wee bump. Walked back to the bikes on the track towards Loch an Dun, but rather than get wet feet we opted for the east side, where a small trail gave some help over rough terrain.summitter07/02/2020
Track from A9 to the south, path alongside the loch is pretty good. Bridge at NN731819 is still there, and so is the path up to the col.alda21/08/2016
Long descent from high ground to W, joined old stalker's path on the way down. Nice wee heathery summit ridge with good views of An Dun and its loch.Lindsay M14/05/2016
