ATV track goes up from approx. 043935. It faded away just over half way up but came across it briefly twice after there. I put a few more stones back on the cairn. Continued to Beinn Bhreac, Beinn Bhreac West Top, Beinn a' Chaorainn Bheag & Beinn a' Chaorainn.duchally19/09/2019
Debs and Tali, after Beinn Bhreac, from summit headed south to pick up track at SW end of the Clais Fhearaig lochans.Mountain Goat26/03/2019
Beautiful walk in from Linn of Quoich and up heathery SE slopes of Meall an Lundain in the snow. Easier wintry walking from there onto Beinn Bhreac and the W top. Direct line SE back down to Glen crossing Poll Bhat, then the long walk back.jenx23/01/2019
With Jenx and Bryher walking up Glen Quoich, beautiful clear skies, very cold, snowy day. Up the first marked track to its south flank, heather thrash/snow to 650m. Tidy cairn reported by Alda bit of a mess, sorted best could with many stones frozen to ground. Next visitor will have to finish the job. Off to North to pick off Beinn Breac and its West Top before descent to Dubh-Gleann and long walk outnordicstar23/01/2019 S04/11/2018
An unusually neat and compact summit cairn. I left it intact.alda18/07/2017

Up from Derry Lodge, to get into a phone signal trudging snow and heather. Descended from the bealach N but heather and haggs far worse. Rain washed all the snow away over the following night.Eddie17/12/2013
