My 1st Munro since officially becoming an OAP. Up via hydro track, via Newton Hill, Beinn Chas and Meall DaimhIsbjorn 3rd Round11/05/2019
From Loch Fyne, a walk up Glen Fyne to the Allt na Faing and up the path to the summit. From there we walked towards the east top then down to the track and back down it via Newton Hill past the quarry to the start to make it a loop. A cracking day, great company and stunning views in all directions, what a beast of a mountain, loved it!Chris Mac04/05/2019
Alex Heenan, Barry McGarahan, Keith Armour Walked from The head of the Loch along the Glen and up the obvious gully. Returned via the new Hydro plant track. A relatively long walk in and out, but thoroughly enjoyable. Topped off by a visit to the brewery near the head of the Loch, a must.ian-e24/11/2018

Trig revisit. Top half of a toppled stonebuilt pillar incorporated into summit cairn: top loops and centre tube but no spider. No summit view but Cruachan from the SW top was superb. 10h (!) circuit from head of Loch Fyne (parking by old bridge): Bhuidhe + Clachan + the GT and 3 CTs. In snowshoes but still heavy going in deepish snow. Track in Glen icy most of the way back. Replaced by surface block according to OS trig archive.RHW04/12/2010
