Creag a' Mhadaidh & Gualann Sheileach fat ebike from Aulich

Grahams: Creag a'Mhadaidh

Date walked: 23/03/2022

Time taken: 4.5 hours

Distance: 17.5km

Ascent: 619m

The main problem accessing the 2,007ft 612m Graham of Creag a' Mhadaidh above Craiganour on the north side of Loch Rannoch is virtually all the possible parking spaces off the road have been deliberately blocked by large boulders and track entrances have No Parking signs as have most of the passing places. I drove up to Aulich Farm to ask if it were possible to leave the car out of the way there but no-one was around. The farm is worked but the farmhouse has been abandoned and in disrepair.so I parked out of the way and got my fat folding ebike out the boot. The track up from Aulich bridge is excellent and is less than an hour up 307m in 4.15miles 6.7km at the 456m watershed. A bit of ATV track heads over towards Creag a' Mhadaidh crossing 4 old drainage ditches (?relief funded after the 1845 potato famines) before it veers left but it is easy going straight up and up along to Creag a' Mhadaidh's summit 612m cairn (1km and 167m ascent from track). Steps retraced to bike and Gualann Sheileach (outlier of Beinn Mholach lacking 150m ascent from intervening col) simply climbed west then northwest to 612m summit above small boulder field (ascent 152m and 0.7km from track). Retrned to bike and back to car in 15min.
