Cruach na Cioba and Beinn Lochain from near end of public road to Succothmore on a rainy day. Followed Cowal Way then direct ascent to Cruach na Cioba, along the ridge to Beinn Lochain. Returned to col then descent back to the Cowal Way.RobertP20/12/2018
6 of 6: From Beinn Tharsuinn.ChrisR30/08/2018
On from Beinn Tharsuinn. Trying to find easiest line, I overshot the summit by 100 yards. Afterwards, I tried to be innovative and descended into Gleann Ban, which was slow going. I should have gone straight down the side as per SMC Guide!IanHHill18/05/2018
From Beinn Bheula. Found a steep but straightforward rake to the north of Creag a Bhuic, then east to the forest edge and north to the Curra Lochain outflow, a great spot. Then initially NNW up steep grassy slopes, then NE to the col SE of the summit. Scrambled up to the left, didn't much like it, came off a bit more north. Descended east then north east by the stream, tricky section about 500-400m, then alog the south west edge of the forestry, not nice. Then back to Corrow and Lochgoilhead.Owen B16/05/2018

Cowal way on map isn't as it is on the ground. Follow the way posts, not your map.ngthack09/05/2017
Solo walk with Holly and Lily. We followed Cowal Way from Lettermay to Curra Lochain then straight up hillside and back. Strong cold wind, dry, low cloud but sunshine on top. 4 hoursalexmaclennan03/01/2017
From Lettermay, up SE face per Dempster. Debris from recent fellings, long wet grass and crags all contributed in turn to make this an arduous and uncomfortable ascent with not enough daylight left for planned continuation to Cruach nam Miseag.Topographer5702/11/2016
Parked at 18793 00252. There's a footbridge at 16154 99748duchally01/11/2016

Clockwise round from Lochgoilhead of Stob na Boine Druim-fhinn, Beinn Tharsuinn and Beinn Lochain. Diversion to take in plane crash / memorial.russell6119/03/2016
Path out east terrible alongside Curra Lochain (despite being waymarked as the Cowal Way) then much improved after end of lochan leading to new track network above Corrow.alda02/09/2015

From Lettermay the map not much use for forest roads.Steep ascent through brash to east top and then main one. Great mountain though.Martin R02/05/2014
From Stob na Boine Druim-fhinn. This is an awkward hill to get off, surrounded by steep cliffs and felled forest. We headed east to col avoiding crags then south to east end of lochan. A short section of felled forest then leads to ATV track at 16312 99636.Lionel Bidwell10/09/2013
W Jenx, from Lettermay, via Corrow and steep break in trees (now felled) to ridge. From Stob na Boine DF easy over Tharsuinn to Beinn Lochain. Steep down, through now felled trees & new tracks direct to Corrow. Great views!nordicstar29/04/2012
