Followed Clive G's route from Crinan harbour. The track up the hill from NR762915 is obvious but does not head straight up, instead emerging from the forest at NR767917.ColinW20/11/2023
From Crinan CP along the track up to the Dun and Creag Mhor, then Cnoc Reamhar & NE top, Barr Ban & Barr Mor. A challenging circuit...sclater15/08/2023
Up from Crinan back down to the forest trail and onto the ridge of Creag Mhor.ARM15/08/2023
Parked near Gallachoille off road, then up track of sorts most of the way to the ridge in very dry conditions with Jill.Dugswell211/06/2023
Very limited parking just south of Gallachoille. Up track passed farm sheds and then I went straight on at Jct and along field edge. Started raining and misty. Eventually went up through mature trees and straight up to trig. No views. Came down along ridge and eventually down to muddy track which came to Jct. Glad to see car. 80 minsCoinneach24/05/2023
Solo trip from Gallachoille. Glad I wore my wellies. The view was worth it though.Invicta1425/03/2023
From Crinan Harbour as Clive G. With Karen.ChrisR25/07/2022
From Gallachoille, where there is a pull in next to a passing place just to the SW. The farm track is good to the track junction and then becomes a quagmire in winter. The track L to the sheepfold (used in descent) is a mess of mud, cow shit and churned up ground either side. The track straight on (used in ascent) to a feeder, down to a stream and up might be better, you can avoid the mud in the bottom of the ditch, then you just walk up the field avoiding the bogs, then through a gate with a bog bridge made of rhododendron branches to join the main track. The track beyond the wall is also wet and muddy but with less cow shit. It's a great relief to reach the grassy spine of the hill, from which the going is very easy to the lovely top. I went to the lochan then up. Fine views.Gill20/01/2022
From Crinan Harbour, along the Crinan trail, as Nordic Star. From track junction at 762915, an old forestry track leads up the south side of the stream, then bears left and levels out, then follow the wall up and out of the forest at a bwf. A rough track then follows the N bank of the stream to Bealach na Minehead. Lovely ridge walk then to and beyond the trig. Rejoined Crinan trail and completed loop via Castle Dounie, a good viewpoint, but not as good as the Marilyn. Total 8 miles.Clive G07/08/2021
From Garrachoille north on track past farm buildings. At zig-zag bend (768905), turn left on track past sheep fold. It turns west and winds through a field to a gate. From here paths lead WNW onto ridge which can be easily followed to the summit. Fine ridge with excellent views.Winterfloodian29/05/2021
2nd of 8 from Crinan. Not the easiest route from Creag Mhor up and down and through bands of forestry then nearer the top an almost alpine meadow feel. Lovely top and a good place to stop for a drink before heading over to Druim an dun....Dazingdale27/05/2021

Love this hill, Aka Gallachoille Hill, walk up past the barns at Gallachoille, circular trig on the summit.DavieRuts10/02/2019
From Gallachoill as others... track continues to animal feeding area then an ATV and finally vague path zig zags up to the ridge.N.Morters26/01/2019
From Gallachoill, as others. Mapped farm track to its end, then soggy sheep pasture following the 70m contour to NR 7707 9105; up steeply through conifer woodland; out onto open fell side, whence still steeply up to the top.jonglew02/11/2018
From Gallachoille - not sure where I went but managed to find tracks to summit ridge. Some bracken clearance has taken place and there were sheep and cattle near the top.Chris Peart11/08/2018
golden eagle flew over to look at me. great views.Adrian09/08/2017
2/3. Good views.PGCE05/08/2017
From Gallachoille, track then ATV track to almost the summit. Great views and a cloudless sky.garyhoney23/07/2017
From Gallachoille, parked a short distance to the south then up the track as far as a bath, then left up and make for the gate behind a red tiled dwelling. There is much more vegetation than shown on maps, but rough tracks penetrate it as far as a delightful summit ridge. Rather more scary were the visions of a writer who once lived across the sound, the more so when on the way down I had to detour around a gate that highland cattle decided to obstruct in a scene that reminded me of Animal Farm.Topographer5731/05/2017
From Gallachoille. Not too difficult apart from fence crossing. Good views.NormanW29/04/2017
Up track from the south, then pretty rough going up onto summit ridge.AndrewFinnimore04/08/2016
parked near gallachoille track then up through bracken.robertphillips06/09/2015
With SG from Crinan. As per Nordicstar/neimcv - when overgrown track curves to left, continued straight up round a couple of fallen trees to a foam protected bw fence crossing.Smudge06/06/2015

Revisit. Limited parking near Arinafad Beg; forest road then 300m of boggy plantation to 764902, then open slopes, brackeny in places. Fine summit ridge.RHW22/09/2009
From Crinan Harbour start on forest walk, but continue S on forest road for 2.75km. On left is steep overgrown track leading to soggy gulley and the ridge above. Great views to Jura. 10k total.neimcv20/07/2009
From Crinan, bit longer but easy access (may be replanted). Sunny, cold wind, very clear and good views.iangalbraith26/09/2007
Entrance to Gallachoile Farm. On farm track to a zig zag past outbuilding to col on horizon. Turned right up grassy prow quite steep for part of the way and to top at 10.35. Vanessa 10379. Full length view of Jura from Paps to Barnhill.arranc29/04/2007
Up and down from the road in howling gale.Eddie11/03/2004
