From Inversnaid. Nice outcrops on the hill. Had to backtrack on the way down to Beinn Dubh as met a cliff.Alan Moore22/04/2019
From Beinn Dubh, down to cross pylon track then pick up forest track northwards to roadN.Morters02/01/2019
Some rough terrain and fierce hags from Cruachan. Outcrop looks better without the cairn.alda01/04/2018
Taken in on traverse from Cruachan to Beinn Dubh.Chris Peart18/05/2017
Easy ascent via pylon track and NE shoulder Then across to Beinn Dubh zigzagging down to avoid crags (would be tricky in mist) and up easy but boggy ground. Back via pylon track.AndrewFinnimore02/04/2017
Track from 413075. Much of the path from 410067 is covered in felling debris, but the ground still frozen from recent hard frosts so not too bad. A nice shapely hill, ascent steep but comfortable. On to Beinn Dubh.Topographer5726/11/2016
Beinn Dubh and Uamha from road to north. Parked outside gated area to pylon service space, old car park? Followed pylons track (in distinct in places) until cut onto Dubh. Back to gate in deer fence and direct line to right of summit cutting up underneath impressive crag line. Easy to contour into final summit slopes. Headed direct back to lochan avoiding the ups and downs of the deer fence. Very wet ground all over after rhe rains, four hours for the lot.nordicstar13/09/2016
A great walk up beneath the huge long crag from the bealach. Complicated ground coming down. We found a useful deer track.jenx13/09/2016
round of beinn uamha and beinn dubh anticlockwise from tracks starting at 413077.robertphillips28/02/2015
start at a tarmacked small carpark, as a track under the pylons start there. much easier to go up there. keep slightly left of the fence to avoid gullies, especially in snow as there are big up and downs. You will have to climb the fence to get to the top on the left hand side of the fence. Done the hill with Jon Metcalf, Alison Richardson and Margaret Youngtallblond28/02/2015
Followed the line of the pylons to ascend from the north east.JohnW03/06/2013
Looking for Midas with Holly and Abby. A gorgeous high cloud, light wind, sunny, day with fabulous views from Ben Lomond, round Glen Douglas hills, Arrochar and Crienlarich hills to Trossachs. Snow above 2000'. Rob Roy Carpark, Cruachan, Cruinn a Bheinn, Beinn Uamha, and back over the tops. New Deer fence needed to be jumped several times. 7 hours.alexmaclennan02/02/2013
Tough approach from Cruachan. Down to SE through bracken. Ran out of time to head on to Beinn Dubh so I took the track through Gleann Dubh instead.campagvelocet26/06/2012
Very tough wee hill. Superb view of Ben Lomond and Arrochar Alpshillhunter20/05/2012
