Parked at Gordonbush. Out on track through windfarm, returning over Meallan Liath Beg, Meallan Liath Mor, Carn Garbh South Top, Col-bheinn and Beinn Smeorail.PGCE02/05/2021
Parked just west of the bridge at Gordonbush, and walking SE on the road, passed the two sets of gates to the Lodge. Following Colin's guide, spotted the track going up just past the gates, which takes you up outside the deer fence, onto a forest track. The track joined the main track above the Lodge. A very pleasant walk out on the track, then on open hillside in some snow, to the summit. Small cairn at the obvious summit.LizH25/02/2020

Clockwise circuit of the 9 tumps round Glen Sletdale. Started too late at 9:30am so descent off last one (Creag a' Bhodaich) in the dark.Dave McG27/12/2018
Easy walk from Gordonbush. Worth knowing that the track past the Lodge starts from just east of the entrance gate, not immediately obvious until you climb the initial bank.Colin Crawford30/06/2016
