From Brig O'Turk Woodland Trust Car Park. Walked up a little past the Finglas Dam, then took good path heading roughly SSE. Left path to head towards Stuc Odhar ridge, joining roughly midway. Climbed S Top, then Stuc Odhar. Traversed N and climbed Bioran na Circe. Then complex ground (in mist) to climb Am Fireach and the steep summit of Ardnandave Hill. Returned W and just before reaching Stuc Dhubh descended SW down spur to reach vehicle track down to Glen Finglas Reservoir and start point.RobertP06/03/2024

Round of Bioran na Cice, Am Fireach Main & East, Ardnadave and Creag na h-Airighe from Stank Glen.TRG31814/05/2021
Went for a pre-lockdown 2 play amongst the humps n bumps north of Ben Ledi. Turned out to be harder work than anticipated due to sheet ice on the footpaths from Coireachrombie and deep snow once on the heather slopes. Nevertheless, we sweatily managed to top-out on Creag na h-Airighe, Ardnandave Hill, the Am Fireach's, and Bioran na Circe before sliding home exhausted.summitter04/01/2021
