Walked in from A832 along Loch Bhraoin. Good track for walking; wouldn't advise it for a bike - lots of new deep gravel makes it slow as walking. Together with Groban.IanHHill14/07/2019
From A832. Beinn Bheag, Groban, Ceann Garbh Meallan Chuaich (also visiting the trig point), camping on descent. Excellent views into Fisherfield, hot but mostly with cloud cover, and lots of horse flies on return.RobertP06/07/2018

From Groban, then cycled back from Lochivraon. Too hot and dry to continue over Rainicn.Topographer5717/08/2016
Parked up on main road and cycled down track to Loch Vroan, along the rough road (walking may have been quicker) to the bothy behind locked lodge. The track extends another half km before becoming wet. Cut up the burn to the Bealach Gorm and climbed Ben Beag and Groban from there, back more direct to the lodge and out.nordicstar01/08/2016
The cycling didn't really work for me. Too much gravel washed up from the loch. But after I abandoned the bike it was all ok and some great views into the Fisherfields.jenx01/08/2016
From lochivroan - followed path then made a bee-line for slope just past col. Care needed with burn crossingsButeobuteo31/08/2015

With Dave Roeder. From road (9:30), bike along Loch a'Bhraoin to 113731 (10:25). Crossed river, up Groban (12:10), then Beinn Bheag (13:30), Creag Rainich (16:00) via watershed & back to bikes (17:30) & car (18:20). Low cloud & light rain, so no views; cleared on descent to glorious evening. Unfit; slow progress.dbb05/06/2014
round of 3 groban, beinn bheag, and creag rainich cycled from the road past the loch to the bothy.robertphillips20/10/2013

Beinn Bheag (NH 084714) & Groban (NH 099709) S/F NH 162760 Carried dingy from road to loch then paddled to far end for 2 night camp. Overcast for majority of day with sun in late afternoon.

From main road with 800' start, on track to east end of Loch A'Bhraoin, another long mile past the bothy on WDP to cross the river at a cairn and up over rough dry ground to top at 12.20. Ptarmigan - lowest I've seen. East top higher but beautiful views from west top. to Grobanarranc14/06/2007
