|Parked near start of a track at NN616047. Reasonable parking. 40 mins to Ben Gullipen then 30 mins more to marilyn summit. We felt we did this at a reasonably quick pace. Only 5-10 mins less on descent.||willyross||22/01/2020|
|From Callander, over bridge to signposted forest track at 627074. Signposted path leads all the way to Ben Gullipen. Quick easy forest track walking. Then followed path along the ridge down to a col, best to stay left on ATV track from the col around the LHS of Ben Dearg until the ATV track meets a path going up hill to the summit(taking off too early as we did is very rough heathery ground). To return returned back down the path and ATV track to the col, then lft through the gap towards the lake, walked clockwise around the loch to the outflow stream. Followed a path down the RHS of the stream for a few hundred metres until it met a path that led to the Rob Roy way and walked down the side of Loch Venachar to Kilmahog, then along the old railway line to Callander (with a refreshment stop in the Laid in in Kilmahog). 18.9km circuit||JulieB||29/12/2019|
|From 616047 (7:55) followed track to Ben Gullipen then along ridge across col to summit. Path and faint ATV track most of the way. Fine and warm with fair views. Return by same route; finish 9:50||dbb||25/08/2019|
|Had to start from Balvalachlan due to unhelpfully vague road diversion signs foiling efforts to reach NN616047. At NN629059 a finger-post pointed along an unmapped track going NE, with the words Ben Gullipen 2 3/4 miles - I didn't risk it. TR from Ben Gullipen, nothing steep encountered. A tempting 'path' over the intermediate mound faded out in Ruff'n'Tuff, whereas an unseen path goes L, curling down the S flank, to join an ATV track which leads almost to the summit. Pestered by flies all the way. Yet another lead-grey sky and thus yet another monochrome (and thus uninspiring) view. Has anyone seen the sun lately?||Isbjorn||25/06/2019|
|Solo trip. Probably the best view of Ben Ledi. Very steep off Ben Gullipen if you try going along the ridge. There is a path/ATV track in the valley just to S.||Invicta14||16/05/2019|
|With Malky and Jackie in loop with Monievreckie. Calm and decent views at first, raining heavily for last hour. Very warm.||Rounsfell||02/03/2019|
|From Ben Gullipen with CM. About 2.5 hours return from 618048. Great views over to the Trossachs.||bolton||04/12/2018|
|Track from the SE to the Mary'sfollowed by boggy further geek across to Beinn Dearg.||vegibagger||13/11/2018|
|4of6: From Ben Gullipen.||ChrisR||18/10/2018|
|Solo. Parked near the start of a track at NN616047 on A81 where there is parking for a few cars. Walked up the track, initially through forest and then open hillside. The track provides access to several masts on the summit area of Ben Gullipen. Highest point is reached by a stile at SW end of mast compounds. Continued to Beinn Dearg on path and then ATV track with a final little bit to the summit. Returned on track and followed it up to Letter Hill; it passes close to the highest point which is on the other side of a fence. Went up to the masts and down the access track back to the road. Fine weather and excellent views of Ben Ledi and many other hills.||pwbellarby||06/10/2018|
|Superb views, particularly northwards.||summitter||11/08/2018|
|From track to masts then over the heather/tussocks to summit. Fine autumn views||N.Morters||04/11/2017|
|From 617048 track to masts then followed the segments of boggy path to the summit. Nice walk. No cattle seen despite warning signs at last gate on track.||assynt_bob||14/10/2017|
|Followed track from 617048. Beautiful sunny evening fantastic views. A good two hours brisk walk.||Crib Goch||06/05/2017|
|Easy ascent via track to masts and then footpath along the top to summit.||jenx||17/12/2015|
|With Jenx from parking by gate at start of track to aerials/antenna. Straightforward with return to car in just over the hour.||nordicstar||17/12/2015|
|From the forest track, overlooking Letter.
Went up a small path by the gully, mistake No. 1.
Underestimated the distance to the trig, mistake No. 2. Returned to the track via the steep slope, mistake No. 3. Could it be worse?||Play2End||25/03/2015|
|To Beinn Dearg and back from locked gate on A81 in lovely sunny spring weather. Combination of landrover, single and ATV tracks. 2 hours||alexmaclennan||24/03/2015|
