Driesh, Mayar from Glen Clova
|14 km/ 8.7 miles||820 m/ 2690.29 ft||6 hours +|
The route starts from the Forestry Commission car-park just past Braedownie farm heading west slightly to reach a bridge which leads onto the old hill path into Corrie Kilbo. This path climbs onto the plateau by The Shank of Drumfollow which forms the grass shoulder between Corrie Kilbo and Corrie Fee. From this col climb onto Mayar and return to this col. From this col head up following a fence to the east to reach the summit of Driesh.
To decend head north over scree then into Corrie Fee which leads back into Glendoll Forest on a path which eventually turns into a forest road crossing White Water and back to the Car Park.
This is a beautiful area with high corries and valleys notably Corrie Fee. Corrie Fee is part of the Corrie Fee Nature Reserve and is where you'll find many rare subarctic plants situated on high mountian ledges away from dear & sheep.
From the top of these hills you get excellent views across a large area including the Lochnagar Hills on the north, Glenshee to the west, and even out towards the North Sea on the east coast. From Mayar particularly on a clear day you can truly appreciate The Southern Cairngorms dominating the north from this peak.
An Teallach (Bidein a'Ghlas Thuill, Sgurr Fiona)
|13 km/ 8.08 miles||1390 m/ 4560.37 ft||7 hours plus|
Route up An Teallach which is arguably the most impressive mountain range on mainland Britain avoiding the pinnacled twisting eastern ridge. This is the shorter of the popular ascent routes from Dundonnall and avoids the main difficulties by returning the down into Glass Tholl.
Starting a few hundred metres to the east of the hotel take the path up the north eastern ridge of Meall Garbh following the path into the corrie and then climb steeply onto the top Sròn a Choire (863m) NH06638514 . From this top climb onto Bidein a'Ghlas Thuill which is the highest peak of An Teallach. From here it's a steep easy decent followed by re-ascent of a 1km south-western rocky ridge which leads to Sgurr Fiona.
Return by heading back along the ridge over Bidein a'Ghlas Thuill and descend around NH07098491 where from here head very steeply east into Glas Tholl. Head carefully down this steep corrie along northern banks of the Allt a'Ghlas Thuill right down to the Garbh Allt waterfalls where a better path is joined which is very overgrown in places. Once the road is reached head back to Dundonnell.
The views over to the remote Fisherfield wilderness to the south-west are great and gives you a good look at the so called Fisherfield Six Hills.
Ben Lomond Including Ptarmigan Ridge
|11 km/ 6.84 miles||980 m/ 3215.22 ft||6 hours plus|
Easy route up scotlands most southern Munro on a wide well trodden path most of the ascent. This is a popular route due the Ben Lomond's close proximity to Glasgow. The route of ascent starts from the car park just beyond the Rowardennan Hotel onto grassy slopes once through forestry area. Descent via the Ptarmigan ridge from Ben Lomond back to Rowardennan is mainly rough grass after the initial rocky descent down a ridge off the top which is steep. The route gets slightly steeper towards the end, but offers excellent view of some waterfalls lower down.
Ben Macdui with Cairn Gorm
|18 km/ 11.18 miles||1030 m/ 3379.27 ft||7 hours plus|
Ben Macdui is now often tackled from the north with Cairn Gorm as shown here due to the ski centre car park giving a 650 metre starting point. This is probably the easiest route of ascent (distance wise) starting from the Coire Cas car park at the foot of Cairngorm Ski Centre by way of a path that leads up over slowly rising moorland. There is however several km across an exposed plateau to reach a col
Ben More (Isle of Mull)
|12 km/ 7.46 miles||1050 m/ 3444.88 ft||4 hours plus|
This is the main route traversing Ben More (Isle of Mull) which is the highest peak on the isle of Mull located on the eastern side and the only munro on the island. The route takes in the peak A'Chioch which is to the connected to the east of Ben More by a sharp, knife-edge arête wich requires some simple scambling (Can be avoided by path on the left) and descent is by the north-western ridge which is the tourist route both up & down. The route starts at sea level has a large ascent elevation but worth the effort.
Ben More is a popular hill and on a pleasant day you'll find on the north-western descent section plenty of tourists plodding up the good path leading to Dhiseig.
Liathach Glen Torridon
|10 km/ 6.21 miles||1190 m/ 3904.2 ft||5 hours plus|
This is a classic route on one of Scotland's greatest peaks taking in to munros. Liathach the Grey One situated in the picturesque Glen Torridon is a fortress defended against any assault from almost every direction. The path up looks almost unclimbable and those who manage to find a way up will discover a couple of munros separated by a narrow ridge (famous Am Fasarinen pinnacles) that have drops of 3000 feet either side. Good scrambling skills, a head for heights & a bit of experience is required for this outings. Guides are available in Torridon.
Ben Nevis & Carn Mor Dearg
|17 km/ 10.56 miles||1600 m/ 5249.34 ft||8 Hours plus|
This is a long hard route taking you around the Ben Nevis horseshoe to reach the highest peak in the UK and take in Carn Mor Dearg munro number 9 on the way. The route is a refreshing change if you've only climbed the tallest mountain by the Ben Nevis Tourist Route as it's away from the crowds at least until you reach the summit. The path vanishes on the higher rocky slopes and navigation can be problematic.
This route does true justice to Britains highest peak where the tourist route fails.
