Snuck this one in between morning and evening monsoons. A surprisingly easy walk. Good tracks to the boathouse on Loch na Gaineimh. An ATV track continues E and peters out at the E end of the loch. Good deer tracks show the way contouring SW below steep broken ground to the head of the mapped stream from where it's an easy stroll to the summit ridge. Cross a few hags to the trig and you're there. Reasonably firm ground all the way and mainly friendly short vegetables.Gill14/03/2020
Cycled fro Garvault Hotel as farm as farm buildings. Then on foot. Dry due to lack of rain this spring. Good viewpoint.trimarc217/05/2019

Easy on the track first. Still very windy but done in 4.5 hrs.tallblond27/12/2016
A good bike ride though not all the way to the loch. After that a bit of a bog trot.jenx26/03/2016
Good parking at estate road nr Badelich Lodge. Cycled w Jenx to turn off up old track. Cyclable to old farm buildings, after that track is rough and not worth the effort. On foot cut off to West end of loch on ATV tracks yhen a very good green, grassy line most way to top.nordicstar26/03/2016
After Beinn Armine and Creag Mhor; cycled up track/path to Loch Gaineimh - great views all round including back to Beinn Armine and Beinn Klibreck beyond.raffemeister09/05/2015
Wet and misty. An uninspiring 1400th Marilyn!Tony S27/11/2014
Cycled to boathouse and then did circuit of lochan, clockwise.Martin R03/06/2014
Revisit. Visited after Creag Mhor. Track from E, Badanloch. I was advised to ask at the Trout Fishing house for permission to take the car in but they said no. However after some toing and froing he let me park 2 miles in, saving an hour in total, which gave me time to include this hill and its two Tops on the way out.RHW22/05/2011
from Badanloch Lodge. Grey wagtail. On an excellent track down to the outlet of Loch Badanloch, turning up past sheds and down to a fishing hut on Loch Gaineimh. Hill in view from start. Faint path by loch side through heather to its east end and a sandy beach. Up on a gentle incline over dryish moor and to top at 12.00. No cairn. Strong S wind. Armine, Hope, Loyal, Hiel, Stumanadh, Griam Mor and Beg, the Lodge and Morven.arranc23/05/2009
