Ascended from forestry centre at Cashel Farm, along green waymarks to 414948. Then used the faint track marked on the Harvey's map to the south end of the ruined fence at 426954 - boggy, but much better than the surrounding land. Over Stob a Choin Dubh to Binnein nan Gobhar. Descended almost to forestry en route to Beinn Uird to avoid the worst of the peat hags. Descended WNW to pick up tourist Ben Lomond path.Clive G27/03/2016
