Solo. From car park at Benmore Botanic Gardens along the track that runs northwards close to Loch Eck. Then up to Bealach Bernice and Beinn Mhòr. From Beinn Mhòr went down the SE ridge over Capull Cloiche, Creachan Mòr, Creachan Beag, Creachan Beag SE Top (cairn at summit and a large boulder 25m SE which may be as high, so for good measure scrambled on to the top of the boulder) and A' Chruach. Descended SE and then followed a track through forest back to the car park at the Botanic Gardens. There were quite a lot of rhododendrons in the forest in full bloom, no doubt having seeded from the Botanic Gardens. It was a beautiful summer day with good views.pwbellarby06/06/2018

Glenbranter to Benmore ridge with Gill Stevens. Last of 12 hills picked off - from Creachan Mor SE Top. Dropped down to the cottage at Benmore Farm in the dark.jonglew14/11/2017
Glenbranter to Benmore, over Cruach Bhuidhe, Beinn Bheag, Beinn Mhor and various Tumps. The starting firebreak was very steep, slippy and nasty, except when you can get through the forestry. Would be quicker/easier/more pleasant to gain height by zig-zagging up the forest road. The walk over the hills is fairly rough, and there is quite a lot of up and down, especially towards the end of the Beinn Mhor ridge. A route for connoisseurs. Look out for Christmas decorations on the trees by the track leading down to Benmore.Gill14/11/2017
