Just me the day,started at Alltchaorunn over a boggy path with waymark posts to avoid the house.Up the path and over the dodgy bridge up the Allt Coire Ghuibhasan to a gully which takes you steeply up the Coire Aiteil.Tiring climb this but eased of eventually and reached Beinn Mhic Chasgaig in about 2 hours.Sat behind some rocks for a cofee ,great views to the bookle and Etive hills etc.The way to Creise was obvious,dropped down to the bealach at 698m before climbing again to Creise at 1100m.Two cairns on Creise ,visited both but the first looked the highest before returning to the bealach,more coffee and sandwich before dropping steeply down the hill to pick up the Allt Coire Odhair.Crossed the burn at the bottom then back along the boggy path and dodgy bridge and reached the car in 6 hours.Met Hazel Clippers Senga and Irene in Tyndrum for quick ale before heading hame.Braw :D

Some v good pictures there,pigeon.On Tues 5th Jan,the streams without bridges were uncrossable so I was forced to try the west ridge but despite a lot of searching I could not find a crag- free route.Apparently (I have since learnt) you "turn" a crag at 400m . Is this spot on the south side of the west ridge?(I ended up ascending the easyish north side of the mountain), Tubby.

Just an update on the unwelcoming gate in picture 1 : Our experience today was that the barbed wire / prison like defences are gone, and indeed the gate was not even locked.
