Round of Beinn Bhalgairean, Meall nan Gabhar (old and new top) and Meall nan Tighearn from start of track to Succoth via forestry track on a day of rain and low cloud.RobertP26/05/2019
Revisit. Bhoineach-Bhreac-Tighearn-Gabhar, P NN 2197 2461 where obscure mapped track leads nicely to treeline. Bitter wind but clear and sunnyish. Outcrop (onto which I relocated the small scrappy 3-stones cairn from a few m away)RHW14/04/2019

From Succoth Forest CP. Biked to bend at 220243, easy up through trees and onto hill. Sunny, clear, calm and great views.iangalbraith28/10/2018
Used car park just off A85. Notices for no unauthorised vehicals beyond this. Followed estate tracks to below the ridge a bit further than shown on 50k map. Took first fire break up to deer fence would have been better to take second gap in trees which was only 100m or so futher which lead to a gate. Up to ridge & summit which has no cairn. 5 hours 20 total on a day of high winds.rogreeves16/09/2018
2 of 6: From M n G Old GR.ChrisR01/11/2016
Did the two grahams from the bridge on the track to Succoth. Easy finding the way onto both of them due to cleared forest and useful new tracks. Only 4 hours for both, without cycling, though got a bit of a lift down on a timber wagon.jenx09/09/2016
Parked at the spot others indicated, GR 205264 however met the forest manager who said that should only park 10m from main road at the spaces allocated, however he was ok with us parking where we were... Took the track and walked it easily up to 220243 where a short gap in the trees leads to teh open fell. STraightforward to the summit and other tops, onwards to Bhalgairean.nordicstar09/09/2016
From A85. Car to lockable gate and no entry symbol at 205265, bicycle to 220243, then up steep hillside. Continue via col, tree fights and deer fences to Bhalgairean.Topographer5706/09/2015
Along with Tighrean from A82, most of way on bike on pretty good track. The 'old top' still has the cairn but did both. A pleasant day in good weather for a change after a rough week.dickscroop09/06/2015
With D Roeder. Parked on road by Corryghoil (8:15) and walked up track to junction at 220245. Track NW for abt 100m, then up to higher track (not on map) to about 216243 and briefly through felling to open country. Then via gate at 219247 to summit of Beinn Bhalgairean (10:25). Returned to junction, followed track round bend to abt 220243, then steeply up through old felling through crags to broad ridge and summit of Meall nan Gabhar (12:30). Mostly dry but not v clear. Back to junction and down to car; finish 14:15. Teams of workmen replacing cables on power line from Cruachan.dbb03/05/2015

Vehicles allowed to NN20599 26451. If you are cheeky you could drive to NN22001 24324. Otherwise walk or cycle and then climb over deer fence. I visited Tighearn first and then skittered around on the ice in a tremendously windy hailstorm. Two pairs of gloves and still thought I was in for chilblains. Lovely little mountain. Didnt fancy dropping down to pylons in the wintry conditions.Martin R07/03/2014
