From the level crossing at NM 857813. Followed the path up a bit then followed stream up to then contour high above the Allt a'Choire Bhuidhe at c600m. Slight drop to the NW face of Odhar Bheag when took a grassy rake to the NW. Traversed across to the Bheag/Chaorainn col and up to summit. Continued to Beinn Bhuidhe.PGCE25/03/2024
A full clockwise round of the Corbetts and Corbett tops from tent at bridge over Alt a Choire Bhuidhe - nice spot. Bheinn Odhar Mhor; Beinn Odhar Bheag; Beinn a Chaorainn and across to Beinn Mhic Cedidh. Dropped into valley for most of return, sticking to ridge would have been better. Had planned a second day doing tops further west, hence tent, but felt I had done enough in the heat.dickscroop03/06/2023
From an A830 lay-by, and on surely the hottest day of the year in Scotland, we bagged Sgurr na Paite, Beinn Mhic Cedidh, Beinn a' Chaorainn, Beinn Odhar Bheag and Beinn Odhar Mhor. Outliers were also considered, but a mix of heat, reducing water supply and dicky tummy meant we were happy to return with this haul.summitter04/06/2022
