Parked at the Luichart Power Station and followed the track to Glenmarksie then a bit beyond to a gate in the deer fence leading to the open hill. More or less straight up to the 520m top - going was better than I was expecting though had to weave a bit to avoid the worst of the bracken and the odd wet slab. Cut across the top of the corrie to Ghiubhais and then on to Meall Loch a'Bhealaich, Corrachan and Sgurrachd Ire. Down SW and onto the deer-fenced and heathery Carn Dubh (awkward to get the dog through both to the north and south) then straightforward to Ghaineamhaich and Meall a'Choire Leith. Having been up Dearcag previously I bypassed it to the north on deer tracks (longish heather but OK) then on easier ground over Carn a'Mhearlaich and Torr a'Bhealaidh. Kept to the ridge and spotted a gate in the deer fence at NH376572 which leads onto a rough forestry track - stony but an easy way down that avoids negotiating bracken, trees and deer fences. Leads to a short bit of betteStueyB05/07/2024
Set off over the Loch Luichart Dam, along a good track westwards. A vehicle and pedestrian gate about a kilometre west of Glenmarksie provided access onto the open hill. Steep in places, but relatively straightforward ascent to Sgurr Marcasaidh East Top, then far more pleasant saunter over to the main summit. Decided to next head north over heather to grab Meall Loch a' Bhealaich and Druim a' Ghiubhais, before skirting the south bank of Loch a' Bhealaich to the craggier Creag nan Corrachan. Sgurrachd Ire was next, then descended SW towards Braigh Lochan, finding an ATV track half way down to relieve the heather dreariness. Popped up the more pleasant and slightly treed Carn Dubh, which involved a deer fence clamber, before re-joining the track that leads all the way back to the dam and adjacent car park.summitter15/09/2021
