That looks great. I’ve been on this hill from the north & the west but I think I’ll try your road next time. Thank you.

Thanks very much!

Yes it is a great hill and a very enjoyable route - either for the scenery, or if you fancy an easier way to the top.

Following an enquiry about this route, I'm adding a photo here which may be useful. it shows the stile that I mentioned, alongside a gate. Might be useful for anyone thinking about this route.

Thank you for this! We did this today (our 44th wedding anniversary) and really enjoyed it. Your description and photos were very very helpful - thanks again!

Thanks so much for this explanation!
Looking forwards to taking this route tomorrow and this contained everything I needed to know about approaching from the south 👍

Good to see this, as I was wondering what the southern routes were like. I'll be giving this route a go!

Indeed a brilliant route! Not that I've done it, but I bagged the corbett Meall na Fearna from this direction and mused on how interesting (and apparently underrated) it would be to do Chroin this way, as I passed by. Pity I had already done it the day before, from the south WEST - Beinn Each - but also a brilliant route! Congrats to you on having this route in the bank, though. this was the approach at the end of April .https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=112162
