Sleety conditions, poor visibility, helpful track from Glen Orchy Farm.summitter26/01/2020
Nice pull up to the top rewarded with great views. Headed back to the car parked on the A82 down the Coire Chailein.Fellhugger19/11/2019

Done with Smithy from Glen Orchy in late afternoon. About 100m SSW of the entrance to Invergaunan just next to a bridge is a forestry gate with a wide opening & plenty of room to park unobtrusively. A track/path unmarked on the map then winds through the forest, popping out next to the river for a while. Beyond the forest the track continues, overgrown in places through a gate in the deer fencing. About 1km short of the bealach, the track drops to a final deer fence gate. Headed up SW on heather, spaghnum moss & bilberry: tough going. Used ladder over fence, turned crags to R & then over easier ground for a superlative summit view. Dropped to the col & then fairly easily over to Beinn Bhreac-liath. Returned to col & followed deer fence steeply down to first gate & track back to start.NotReallyABagger10/08/2018
Circuit taking in Beinn Udlaidh and Beinn Bhreac-liath from end of track just W of Invergaunan on B8074. Recorded route (not that I'd recommend it!) and write-up at: http://gayleybird.blogspot.com/2018/04/beinn-udlaidh-and-beinn-bhreac-liath.htmlGayle28/04/2018
From Glen Orchy Farm, up the Land Rover track. It would have been better to begin through the farmyard. We cut across the field and were chased by two pigs (they're much faster than you might expect).Pete R28/04/2018

73rd With Allan. From Invergaunan in Glen Orchy. Follow path along Allt Ghamhnain, take line SW up hillside around crags, gain main ridge and continue to summit. Head E and descend to col and ascend NE to second summit. Return along long ridge NNW to complete a circuit. V cold (frighteningly so), dry with broken cloud above tops. Snow lying down to ground level, several inches higher up and soft.RGibbs09/12/2017

From Invergaunan. Fairly easy going. Made sure I bagged the small cairn, not the large one! A bit hazy and breezy but nice and cool. No problem following track through forest to car parking area.Jhimmy07/05/2016

A round including Beinn Bhreac-Liath from the north. Short day before heading south, pity about the cloud, lost some time finding correct line over bealach between the two peaks.dickscroop16/06/2015

MC and JC. Climbed from Glen Orchy. Very cold SE wind. Water ice and very hard snow patches. Cornice on NE side of Udlaidh very impressive with several frozen gullies and waterfalls. No view (the gloomy hill?) and difficult navigation down to eastern bealach. Easy climb on to Beinn Bhreac-liath. Views to Tyndrum and beyond Loch Tulla to the Blackmount. Good views also to the Beinn Odhar 5. Great round. 4h 20mMartin6620/01/2001
