Was intending to do the 3 tops, but such a guff day, only did this from Ledard Farm. The track shown on the map is a very old one, but does ease the way a bit. Nice shooting hut near summit (very well locked)sure it must have super views, but not today.hils22/11/2019
A round of the 3 Simms and a Sub Simm from Ledard Farm. Descended to the stile at 457045 then the muddy Ben Venue path back to Ledard. Soft snow above 600m made for a fairly energetic day out.NormanW15/11/2019
In the area a day early for UK Challenge marshalling so a super bonus to be able to climb this and Beinn Chochan with time still to get back down to Dounans for dinner at 6.Alex C04/07/2017
First of round of 3 from Ledard Farm carpark. My map didn't show the track direct after the path crosses the burn so plodded up to bealach before turning right. Path was sheet ice due to -7C temperature but gloriously clear. On to Beinn Bhreac via the BealachThearlaichdubh05/01/2017

From the layby opposite Ledard Farm entrance, a good track which I left at NN458053 for 3962. Continued to 3963 and 3967, descending WSW on easy grass to the stile at NN457045 for the return. 6 miles, 2700' of ascent, 4 hrs 15 minsJim.Fothergill23/09/2016

Deep snow made circuit of the three western tops of ben venue hard going. Up from Ledmore farm and then east up ridge to find top. Hut at end of track was a useful confirmation in cloud. Continued north over other two graham tops, one section using my axe as a climbing axe on a couple of steep pitches though I guess there was an easier way arounddickscroop20/01/2015
