From Invergeldie picking off Creag nan Eun on route. Frozen turf nice views bitter wind.N.Morters11/03/2023
Solo from invergeldie car park. Car park itself was an ice-rink, as was the track all the way up to the dam, so used the spikes. Above 600m, I was up to my knees in powdery snow, so cut a direct line to the corbett summit, and then dropped down to about 500m, keeping above the shoreline for the walk back to the dam. Was hoping for a 4hr walk - ended up an exhausting 5h 20min.mproudfoot31/12/2022

Creag Uchdach via Allt Mor and Meall Dubh Mor from Invergeldie car park, descending Coire Eachdarra and countouring along Loch Lednock back to dam.TRG31810/11/2021
A round of the Creag Uchdag tops from Glen Lednock, following the R bank of the Allt Mor along a track, through a metal gate and on via faint ATC tracks over the western flank of Creag na h-Iolaire to Meall Aiteachain. From here, a fenced ridge leads to Creag nan Eun (Scotland's smallest windshelter?), Meall Dubh Mor and Creah Uchdag. On descent, I cut down from the first heathery platform on the reascent to Creag nan Eun to the Allt Mor.Nick Down114/08/2021
From Shee of Ardtalnaig. Descended the heathery ridge south, over the track, crossed the stream at about 500m asl, then surprisingly easy going, joining the good track 530m asl, up the track to 610m asl, then over the stream and a straightforward grassy plod to the summit.Owen B17/07/2021

With Andy and Iain. Drove over from Aberdeen. Pathless walk to the top but fine views on way down over Loch Tay.slynch23/07/2020
Along the footpath parallel to the Finglen Burn from Andeonaig. Sheep density thinned out as we climbed higher, before we headed off-path up to the low top of Tom a' Mhoraire then Creag Uchdag, which is a fine summit. Took the high-route back over the hags and tussocky grass to Meall nan Oighreag then along the fence line to Tullich Hill. An easy westerly descent back to the south Tay road reunited us with the sheep and provided a superb vista along this gorgeous glen to complete a four hour round.summitter06/06/2020

Invergeldie CP> Creag Uchdag > Shee of Ardtalnaig [Ciste Buide a' Claidheimh] > Creagan na Beinne > Invergeldie CP. Blazingly hot until 12 noon, when increasing cloud cover made it bearable to walk without sweat dripping all down your body! Only then did I realise I'd set myself up for a long long walk.Jhimmy07/07/2018

Very good in the snow. I followed the track heading up from the Lednock dam. This continues above the fence, but either ran out or was buried in snow. I had a bit of a grovel through snow covered heather and peat hags, which was somewhat trying, but much easier higher up. It was misty, snowing and very white on the plateau, so I was pleased to find the fence that leads up to the top. If you ask me to relate the route to the pretty lines on the OS map, I would have little idea! Apparently, the fence twists and turns a bit on the way to the top, but dodging around in a near white out tends to conceal the niceties of the route.Gill16/01/2016
Again came in via Ardtalnaig, long ridge walk to the summit. Lovely day. Enjoyed the views. Company: Martin Stewart.iandesbottes19/07/2015
