From parking layby S of North Craleckan, along verge N to end of deer fence before following it for a short distance through trees to a gate. Forestry tracks lead uphill to a second gate beyond which the track soon forks, with the smaller track on the right giving access where it levels to a grassy strip between felled trees. From here it is simple but steep going to the summit and the trig point, which has the better view.Nick Down113/05/2023
Trig seemed higher than Marilyn summit. With Gavin. Back the same way to lay-by near Auchindrain. Hot and sunny.Dangerous Dave30/07/2021
A 3 hour stomp up Dun Leacainn, Leathad Bheithe and An Torr from the forestry track near Auchindrain via the track, windbreaks, felled plantations, new plantations, bogs, tussocks and minor haul tracks.sclater17/02/2021

Follow the new forest road from main road@ 1.5 miles east of Furnace. Good parking. Then up firebreaks, much easier. Overcast, mild, calm, good views.iangalbraith19/02/2014
Revisit to trig. Fine view; bench adjacent to trig, got the impression there may be a path from E. Direct line from WNW via rides & moderately dense spruce is rough but not v difficult.RHW09/10/2006
From Furnace. Access track to South Craieckan and faint path up on narrow forest road to start of dense plantings. Small footbridge over a ditch leading directly uphill between rows of mature firs, needing only a small amount of branch snapping to make good progress. Then to left to follow a very small stream supposedly giving an easier route. Horrendous route blocked by fallen trees, crossing and re-crossing the stream, eventually coming to a complete stop by lower branches. Sun hat and glasses whipped off. GPS gave up as forest got denser. Eventually to end of forest in front of a 100' sheer rock face. I had indeed lost my £200 glasses! Gingerly took long diversion north, out of forest, over tussock and rusty wire fence to top at 14.00. No cairn. Left pack, down on tussock and up to trig point. 14.15.arranc25/04/2005
Track from Furnace fight through forest then clearing ithen tussocks.Eddie11/03/2004
Summited both tops after parking up just south of Auchindrain in layby. Steep tussocky ascent from track to north then slightly better descent to NW but some clearfell although worked our way down to felling track without too much bother. Good views but not particularly nice ascent. Good spot for bilberries et al...Heather TSblank
