from Cruachan Dearg; round of 4: 2 Simms and 2 Grahams. From Cr D as per SMC Guide.IanHHill29/06/2022
Parked at Knock and biked to NM568371. Gained ridge by climbing Bith-bheinn, on to Cruachan Beag, then along ridge to Cruachan Dearg (straight forward walk). A dog leg out to Corra-bheinn. Useful to have the GPS to help negotiate the return of the top section rocks. Contoured Cruachan Dearg to join the “track” at Creag Mhic Fhionnlaidh (big boggy at the start). Back to bike and out.BaggerGutt27/04/2022

Climbed with Cruach Coireadail followingthe route in the SMC Grahams guidebook. Plenty of wildlife including a golden Eagle, plus a bonus dip in a pool with a waterfall, welcome on a hot August dayRockdoctor19/08/2020
A good circuit from Knock, parking by the gate to the Loch Ba track. Out to Gortenbuie on track, then path disappears then reappears along river, messed up by cattle. Up the fine and very steep NE ridge of Corra-Bheinn, then steep descent to Mam a Coir' Idhar on S side of ridge to avoid crags. Mad looking climb to Cruchan Dearg but climb almost up to first band of crags, head NW below them on sheep tracks and then up easy grass and scree. Onwards to Cruachan Beag and lemming impersonation off the NW ridge of Bith Bheinn eases off to sensible terrain back to the stony track. Note that the track is pretty bumpy, on average flat and with many loose sections and a bike might be more trouble than it's worth.Gill12/07/2020
A round of Corra-Bheinn and Cruachan Dearg. Really spoilt with views over Skye to the north and Jura to the south.Nicky C26/03/2020
