From car park near Victoria Bridge. Used the track south of Abhainn Shira knowing it goes all the way out to Allt Sùil na Curran’s, then followed on rising traverse to high up and along to summit on mostly easy going grass with occasional soggy bits. Fine viewpoint sunny dayN.Morters21/06/2019

Round of Chuirn and Suidhe from Victoria bridge CP. Used track to 232392 but found it long grassy and indistinct and much too soft and wet to cycle.Topographer5725/08/2018
Very wet solo round of Suidhe, Chuirn and Tairbh from Victoria Bridge.amswanston29/07/2017
From Vic. Bridge car park. Forest track past monument, take LH branch through trees. Track continues past old forest to @232392, (crosses river 4 times, easy today), rough but better than the surrounding tussocks. Sunny, dry, cool wind, great views.iangalbraith02/04/2017
A round of the 2 Grahams and the Marilyn between. Clockwise from the Inn. Took 7 hours. All quite easy. Came back by the forest track which is good. Worst bit was beside the river on the way down to the forest.jenx10/09/2016
From Inveroran, after Meall Tairbh, ground between multi contoured and varied, lochans, moraine like. Eventually dropped to col then fairly easy ascent of a'Chuirn. Onto Beinn Suidhe.nordicstar10/09/2016
3 of 7: From Beinn Suidhe.ChrisR18/06/2016
Unplanned addition to route which seemed necessary after I noticed it was only 564m on my copy of sheet 50. Good hill anyway.alda25/08/2015
Parked near Victoria Bridge up track and along NE ridge to summit which I may have visited before when doing the Grahams but suspect I contoured round before I found out about Marilyns! Back same way. No paths but some useful deer tracks.AndrewFinnimore15/10/2014
round of meall tairbh, beinn a chuirn, and beinn suidhe in deep snow from victoria bidge.robertphillips23/03/2014
Surprisingly easy from the col of B.Suidhe. However, it is a long way back to Victoria Br. Did consider a start from Glen Orchy but it is equally long way to a bridge over the river. Ran out of daylight which meant 'fun' in the boggy end bit.Martin R12/03/2014
