From the Loch Avich Road at 858123, the water board tank, up the shoulder to the summit. Worth doing, great view.DavieRuts01/06/2024
16th and final top of a 24km traverse from Ford to the Glenmore Country Hotel in Kilmelford, climbing Dun Dubh, Cnoc Torran, Sron na Saobhaidhe, Cruach nan Dearc, Cnoc Sgliatach, Cnoc na Moine, Creag Luaragain Bheag South top, Cruach an Eachlaich, Creag Luaragain Bheag, Creag Luaragain Mhor West top, Creag Luaragain Mhor, Cnoc Lochan Mhic Chuaraig, Carn Duchara, Creag nan Cuilean and Cnoc Bealach Sarach nan Airm, descent through Spruce and brash to forest track leading to road and following this all the way to the waterfall NE of Barr Beithe then across to the top with superb views down into Kilmelford. I recorded 219m @ NM 85457 12234. A steep descent followed by a tricky way through the bluebells and conifers to reach Glenmore Country House in glorious sunshine. I wasted 15 minutes checking that I had the right property as I couldnt see any sign! 1495m of cum. elevation.Dazingdale10/05/2019
After Cruach na Seilcheig. Up east ridge over rough grass and heather with some faint paths to top. Getting mistier out to sea. Back down to minor road, then past dam on Loch an Losgainn Mòr and along track past Loch an Losgainn Beag to return to Kilmelford and bus for Oban.mainnirnamfiadh02/02/2018
