Down to col with Beinn Odhar and up through peat trenches to reach summit post of BnE where second phase lunch was taken. Moved off NNW through hags and down shoulder, veering NE to use bridge, ca.723152, to cross Allt na Caillich and gain the track in Findhu Glen taking NW to white gate (locked) at road, turning L down to P; paid short visit to GA church. Cloud had markedly increased, with the threat of rain. First visit to BnE was also solo on 17/10/2015.jacobus08/07/2019

From Glen Artney CP, round of Odhar, Eun, Oighreag and Brannan.Topographer5723/04/2019
From Glen Artney car park up Beinn Odhar and one way traverse over the higher hump summit, circuitous route to cross streams and up onto the TuMPs of Beinn Clack, the summit and the outlying NE lower TuMPs and 5 mile walk back along road in the dark.vegibagger17/11/2018
From the Auchnashelloch church car park. Took the track up Findhu Glen, crossing the burn by a stone bridge. Then up the NW ridge to the peat-hag summit. Wandered around likely high points. Onwards to Beinn Odhar. Solo.marktrengove11/06/2018
Need to use church carpark - nearest parking to start of track. Warning notices re explosives, no unauthorised personnel, etc, but no sign of military activity so walked along track up Findhu Glen past cottage, across bridge and zigzagged up easy but steep ground to summit plateau. Loads of peat hags but fortunately today the gaps were filled with hard snow making the going easy. Good visibility with views to Southern Uplands and Arran. Shame about the monstrous wind turbines. Took a direct line north on descent and crossed one of the many bridges to regain track. Surface was frozen solid today but guess would normally be pretty boggy lower down.AndrewFinnimore27/01/2018

Last hill on the Glen Artney round of Donalds and Donald tops.nickywood117/07/2017
Followed SMC Grahams and Donald circuit: Am Beannan - Meall Clachach - Uamh Bheag W and E tops - Beinn Odhar - Beinn nan Eun. Rime on the ground helped with the peatier sections. Otherwise Spring-like, with a skein of geese flying North, bright sun and a cloud inversion.Nick Down121/01/2017

6 of 7: From Beinn Odhar.ChrisR28/10/2016
Over intervening dip from Beinn Odhar, using grassy runnels between peat hags where possible.Lindsay M10/07/2016
Route as per SMC Grahams & Donalds book. 7 hours for the circuit: hard going for most of the way with no paths to speak of and lots of peat hags.TRG31807/07/2016
From church cp, up Findhu Glen to wooden bridge, then steep up to summit. Second to last Donald.ngthack06/04/2016
Solo; continuation of walk around Meall Clachach, Uamh Bheag and Beinn Odhar, through deep peat trenches down and up to summit post-in-stones of BnE - the final Donald! Descended NNW into Findhu Glen, crossing Allt na Caillich, 0.5 km downstream from Findhuglen house, on an unmarked bridge; walked along track to meet road in Glen Artney and visited the little church for a moment of quiet reflexion. Good walking weather with earlier frost melting in strong sunshine and later thin cloud developing.trienbrae17/10/2015

Drove up single track road to public parking by church. Followed track up Findhu Glen to little farmhouse then crossed bridge to climb up NW spur of hill.derekblackburn10/10/2010
Visited the Auld Kirk at Achnashelloch before starting walk. Lovely crisp morning with frost covering the ground. Wasn't expecting the wind turbines (due to using old map). one of them scared me to death when it suddenly loomed from the mist.thenomad08/12/2009
