With Tali from Cashel campsiteMountain Goat04/09/2019
A nice hill. From Beinn Uird. A bit damp in the wide saddle otherwise straightforward. On to the trig point and Gualann. The last of 6 500m Humps from Inversnaid.Alan Moore23/04/2019
From Cashel Farm, with Ellie dog.BLACKHILL08/04/2019
After Beinn Uird. Heather (actually tussock grass) nothing like as bad as others' reports - only mildly irksome on my personal toughness scale of irksome, purgatorial and excrutiating - I have encountered far, far, worse heather in trying to follow other peoples' route on the web site. Better done on a good viz day when can look well ahead and plot a long range route. A faint trod-cum-ATV track clips the E edge of a tiny lochan in the col with Beinn Uird. In low viz, try passing E of the col, nearer to the forest where green grassy corridors can be linked together. Toughest terrain was the descent to the woods above Cashell, this section would be purgatorial to come UP. From Cashell Farm to Rowardennan SYHA via the West Highland Way - an awful torment of endless meanderings and pointless big ups and downs - mentally excrutiating - took twice as long as walking on the road would have been. I do not recommend going UP from, and especially parking at, Cashell Farm - avoid letting the propIsbjorn23/03/2019
4of5: From Beinn Bhreac.ChrisR28/02/2019
Second visit but no different to my first 18 years ago; still an unattractive mix of heather and wet tussocksColin Crawford14/12/2018
Ascended by a good track from Cashel Farm carpark to the northern tip of the forest. From here there is a mixture of scattered trees, heather and marshy watercourses - no longer any farming. In misty conditions I followed streams to a re-entrant to the west of summit - not always sure of my position in the mist. From here I ascended a steep knoll to the summit. Then navigated to Beinn Bhreac.JohnW31/05/2018
Ascended from forestry centre at Cashel Farm, along green waymarks to 414948. Then used the faint track marked on the Harvey's map to the south end of the ruined fence at 426954 - boggy, but much better than the surrounding land. Over Stob a Choin Dubh to Binnein nan Gobhar. Descended almost to forestry en route to Beinn Uird to avoid the worst of the peat hags. Descended WNW to pick up tourist Ben Lomond path.Clive G27/03/2016
Nice little hill, summit many tops, glad it was sunnyN.Morters27/02/2016
Up the woodland track from Cashell, then across seemingly miles of tussocks and bog. Beinn Bhreac trig, Binnean nan Gobhar, Ben Uird. Misty and damp all day. Did not find a single useful track. I imagine the views must be good.jenx16/12/2015
With Jenx from Cashell farm. Used track to 320m then up warercourses to Beinn Breac trig. Gobhar summit cairn then a hard slog over very wet, tussocky/heathery ground to Ben Uird and back to same track in mist and rain to start point. Not a route for the connoisseur.nordicstar16/12/2015
With Mrs G. From Cashell Farm visitor centre car park. Rough and tussocky after leaving forest vehicle track.jonglew21/05/2015
beinn bhreac, binnean nan gobhar, beinn uird, from cashel farm.robertphillips28/12/2014
With Uird from Blairvockie. Hard pathless slog over rough boggy ground with plenty of tussocks. One for the masochists. Perhaps up from Cashell preferable with the track up through the trees.AndrewFinnimore02/10/2014
Lovely cold, clear, sunny afternoon. Solo ascent with Holly, Abbie and Jenny from Cashel Forest Carpark. 3 hours round.alexmaclennan11/03/2013
with Jamie on anticlockwise circuit over Conic Hill and then Binnean na Gobhar. Interesting dilapidation on the trig pillar that's not on the summitvegibagger22/09/2012
