Glen Turret 

This is a track log of a high level circuit around Glen Turret taking in Auchnafree Hill [Corbet], Ben Chonzie [Munro] and returning over Carn Chois. Start point is car park just below dam in Glen Turret. Distance 20k, ascent approx 1300m, time under 7hrs. Note walk done during winter, so peat bogs between Choinneachain and Auchnafree Hill were well frozen, if this is not the case it would be easier to stick to the high level landrover track between the two hills.

Carn na Saobhaidhe 

This is a bike & hike track log to the remote, and rather featureless, Corbet of Carn na Saobhaidhe in the Monadhliath range. Start point is at the end of the public road in Strathdearn, where there is a reasonably sized car park. From there it is a fairly easy cycle up the Glen, on good estate roads, until just past the Dalbeg cottage. Take the land rover track that heads west up the hill almost to the 700m contour [it would be possible to take a mountain bike the full length of this track if you don't mind a bit of pushing on the way up]. The last few Km to the featureless summit dome are a bit of a slog through bog and peat hags no matter what route you choose. There is a small cairn on the summit that could be tricky to find in very low visibility. [there is also a new bulldozed track that comes in from the NE which goes almost to the summit - if you find it the summit is not far away] Distance approx 29k [16 by bike] . Ascent 600m, Time just over 5 hrs.

Bridge of Orchy Munros 

This is a track log of a SW to NE traverse of the 4 Bridge of Orchy Munros. Start point is at Achallader farm where there is a large car park near the old ruined tower. From there it is a 10K cycle down to the south side of Beinn Dorain, initially on the A82, transfering to the old Military road at Bridge of Orchy [Part of the West Highland way - certainly felt a lot safer cycling down this than on the A82] Access to the South ridge of Beinn Dorain involves a crossing of the Railway line [there are a few underpasses if you do not fancy having to scale the barbed wire fence either side of the rail line] The grassy south slope of Beinn Dorain is fairly steep but the gradient eases off once above 600m, from here it is a pleasent walk to the summit. There are a few crags and boulder fields near the summit but no technical difficulties. From the summit of Beinn Dorain follow the well worn path north down to the col and then up to Beinn an Dothaidh. From the summit of Beinn an Dothaidh go over the 993m top and down the east ridge to the col above Coire Daingean. From here pick up the faint path that goes over Beinn Achaladair and onto Beainn a'Chreachain. Apart from a short steep section on the east side of Beinn Achaladair it is a fine high level ridge walk with good views over Rannoch Moor. From the summit of Beinn a'Chreachain go down the NE ridge and drop down into Coire an Lochain. There is a rather muddy waymarked path down the west side of the Allt Coire an Lochain and through the Crannach woods which eventually joins a landrover track leading back to the start point. Distance approx 34K [10K on bike]. 2030m of ascent . Time just on 10hrs

Sgurr nan Ceathreamhan 

This is a bike and hike track log of a traverse of Mullach na Dheiragain and Sgurr nan Ceathreamhan from the west. Start point is at the end of the public road near Killilan. From there access up Glen Elchaig by bike as far as Carnach [First few miles of estate road is tarred] Continue on foot up the Glen as far as Iron Lodge [Sounds grand but just a little cottage] and then head East up the landrover track. Once up onto Mullach na Dheiragain it is a fine high level ridge walk over Sgurr nan Ceathreamhan and back to Carnach. Distance 44k [22k by bike], ascent 1900m, approx 11hrs.
