TP2563 - Creag Mhor
5th May 2012 18:01 by edfielden
Parked in track entrance at NR 9360 7436 and guess who was there? andyc had already headed up the hill but his dad was at the bottom and very kindly made me a cuppa. andyc himself came down the hill a couple of minutes later and explained the lie of the land towards the top. After a good cup of tea I set out up the track to the NW before cutting the corner to the SW across a piece of open deforested land and onto the track leading SSE. Continuing up the hill I rounded the corner and after another 400m or so I came across Alan and George who had also been on the Inchmarnock trip earlier in the day and who were descending from the summit. I headed W off the track up a shallow deforested valley just before the track started to descend again. Instead of continuing up the gentle valley I climbed a hillock too far to the south of the best route. I had to round this and head north again to avoid a steep wooded gully before turning west again across difficult deforested terrain and then turning SSW. The summit of Creag Mhor is generally heathery and tumpy, and it was a little hard going. However I reached the pillar just after 6pm with again very good views all round in the bright late afternoon sunshine. Pillar has metal cap with indented letters; FB faces N; S sighthole open, N sighthole plugged, others not properly observed. I descended across the difficult terrain again and headed back to Tighnabruaich for well-deserved beer and food!

I bet this hill has never had a busier day in its life. Climbed up along forest track then headed up newly felled area from high point of track. Several tussocks vying for highest point but only 1 trig. On descent met Alan and George who were More interested in its Hump status then found my dad at the bottom busy making Ed a cup of tea before he started his ascent. All this on a hill with only 5 trig ascents and a single entry on Hill Bagging!

Followed a forest track from the NE most of the way, then 500m of rough going to trig. TP was unlike its three neighbours seen that day: FB number of a different order, indented lettering (not raised) and concrete full of coarse pebbles, not smooth.
