An Creachan at 580 mts was sure to provide some great views.
6 miles:3 Hours
Have attempted this trig point from numerous approaches, another attempt was due.
Parking on the Glen Massan road and heading for Corarsic farm,once over the bridge a sign pointing left aids navigation to the top of the glen. The track easily followed and there are marker posts en route, eventually leaving the track and into an opening in the woods.
The track seemed to terminate at the sign, despite the information provided.
After looking about for a marker or any evidence of a trail I decided to head up the burn, ducking under trees and crossing the burn heading to the open hill. Prior to emerging out of the trees a found an old path with some tape tied to the trees, this led to the open hill.
Once out the trees it was a straight forward ascent, heading straight up the hill turning left to pick up an old fence line to the summit and its Trig.
The views over Glenmassan the Holy Loch and beyond were stunning, well worth the effort.
On return thankfully I’d taken note of where I’d emerged from the forest i picked up the path. Curiosity got the better of me so I decided to try follow the path with the taped branch markers.
I got to the point where there was no tape but still a track, instead of heading down hill in the direction of the ascent track I followed the path.
It never led to much and it started to climb again. Instead of retracing my steps to the last bit of tape I decided to push downhill through the woods till I got the the track, it was torture,ha.
Made it back to the track, battered and bruised and made my way back to the car.
Plan to return to confirm the best route and perhaps take a hand saw or axe to clear a/the path.
The route I took!
