Parked on the gravel bay E of Auchnashelloch bridge, stone-hopping over the Water of Ruchill to keep away from farm building during this time of social distance. A wall and a fence, a tussocky ascent of Sron na Maoile, then a pleasant ridge walk over Sron nam Broighleag, Creag na h-Eararuidh and Beinn Dearg. On the descent, a red deer fawn sprang from the long grass within feet of me and scampered away.Nick Down107/06/2020
From church car park in Glen Artney, E along road, down track past Dalchruin to bridge, then along tracks past Dalclathick, then heading across tussocky grass to S ridge of Sron na Maoile, over summit, along ridge to Sron nam Broighleag to Creag na h-Eararuidh, continuing to Beinn Dearg, descending N then down NE to corner of foresty plantation, over old deer fence and up slopes to Mor Bheinn outside new deer fence, reached summit of Mor Bheinn, returned to col, then up to Ben Halton, descended SW to join old quarry track (crossing new deer fence twice in the process), followed track until it turned E, then headed S initially on grazed grassland, then tussocky grass to sheepfold NE of Dalclathick, joined track round to bridge over stream, and back to car park by outward route.kdbennett26/10/2019
From the church carpark to Dalclathick bridge, then through bracken and grasses to Beinn Dearg. Along the ridge to Stuc na Cabaig and Sron nam Broighleag, before heading back via Sron na Maolle. Decided to make it a circular walk, so waked towards the footbridge near Auchinner, picking up tracks back to the main road. About 3.5 hrs.summitter22/06/2019

A big day from tent up track from head of Glen Artney. A round of the horseshoe including Meall na Fearna, the Graham Creag na h-Eararuith and 13 graham tops. Had hoped for some bounding along on grassy ridges but only got those towards end, the rest a bit messy with peat hags, numerous bumps and tops with multiple claimants to be the high point. had some issues with the forest in crossing to south side, now partly felled and I thought I could work through the felled section on what looked like a track from above. Always a mistake, should have gone round west end as originally planned.A good day nonetheless.dickscroop31/07/2016
4 of 6: from Stuc na Cabaig.ChrisR23/07/2016
Solo. A round of a Graham, two Graham Tops and one Subsimm from the car park at Glenartney Church. Descended from Creag na h-Eararuidh and up to the summit of Beinn Dearg, which used to be regarded as the Graham. There is a cairn at the highest point. Martin R says there ainít one there but there certainly is one in 2016 even if it is rather small. Descended to burn confluence at NN705176. Easily crossed both burns and so SW to join Auchinner Ė Comrie footpath and back to the car park via Dalchruin. Met no new deer fences on my route.pwbellarby21/04/2016

Climbed before the 2015 Gargunnock Beer Festival. Various inc. JC and DC O. Massive herd of deer - approx. 500 on the ridge.Martin6608/08/2015
A pre-Gargunnock beer festival wander from Glen Artney with Martin66, JC, J, Smithy, Harts, Hunts & Otis. Left the road near the schoolhouse & followed track & paths to N side of Allt Coire Choire. I proposed a walk up the S ridge of Creag na h-Eararuidh & then on to Beinn Dearg. My brother wanted to go straight for Beinn Dearg, so everyone traipsed off after him. Mutiny was in the air by the time some of the less fit elements reached Beinn Dearg! So much so that everyone except me, J & Smithy went straight back down in the belief that they had climbed the Graham! We continued round the whole circuit for a great high level walk & bagged the Graham. The best way to do the round would be clockwise though, saving the rough stuff for the descent.NotReallyABagger08/08/2015
