Easy longish day from Hotel. All weathers. Decent from Ben Tirran slightly more complicated than it should have been by number of new estate tracks, fences and both planting and felling but with some adjustments and river crossings, got there. With MM, AM, NM.kenmorti06/05/2019

Climbed from the Glen Clova Hotel via Green Hill.Alan11/06/2015
Unexpected bonus to get this far owing to firm dry terrain (and feet) meaning quick progress. Left summit at 10pm, down in glen before 11 then 8km along road and back to car by 12:30am.alda26/05/2015
Ascended from Aidielinn plantation to summit via paths and tracks. Made a circuit above Loch Wharral via Rough Craig to return to starting pointraffemeister09/02/2015
Club meet , starting from the big pile of logs near Wheen. it was very foggy so unfortunately we didn't see Loch Wharrell. Once on the top it was a very easy walk along in the fog. But we managed a small view to Loch Brandy on the way down.tallblond28/09/2014
Solo good sunny day started at glen clover hotelNozzer30/05/2014
Parked at Adielinn Plantation. Saw 1 large herd of deer between 60-80 head and a smaller herd of about 30. On the ascent cloud was blowing over quickly but from Ben Tirran to the trig pillar about 1.2m visability was all I had. A lot of deep snow. On descent I dropped to Loch Wharral, half frozen and beautiful. Saw 3 others on the hill walking round the Craigs of Loch Wharral. About 30 -40 mountain hares most in their white coats were having fun on thesnow covered slopes down to the Loch.LizzieG02/03/2014

I'm pretty sure I was up this one in the 1970s, but have no record. Best to be sure :)GWR Chris02/09/2007
One of the ways to bag 2 Corbetts in a day. Bag an easy one in the morning. Then drive 30 miles to the next glen and bag another. Unremarkable walk with no views.gman02/06/2007

with Wendy B. from Clova Hotel, up the round of Loch Brandy then south to summit, down to road and walked back. Breezy but otherwise fine day.niallp11/05/2003
Cairngorm Club Bus meet. With a fellow member. From the car park at the end of the Glen Esk road. We walked along the track on the north side of Loch Lee and up the glen past Falls of Unich and Falls of Damff to a ruined building where the path ends. We followed a burn to the summit of Muckle Cairn before joining another path. We left it to go over White Hill (855m) to reach the summit of Ben Tirran (The Goet). We then headed for Green Hill where we met some other club members. We walked together round the rim above Loch Brandy to the Snub. We had time in hand so we decided on an extension to Boustie Ley, descending via Ben Reid. Weather was excellent.pwbellarby06/10/2002
