Glenbranter, Creag Tharsuinn, Beinn Mhor, Beinn Bheag, Cruach Buidhe, Glenbranter.PGCE22/05/2019
Cycled up from Glenbranter to tk junction at 109930 then turn right uphill, and right at about 105929 onto a soft and wet grassy track that leads through the forest onto open ground at 100927 and a steep ascent onto the ridge. Beware of a tempting clearing which leads from 105929 onto the wrong mountain and wrong side of some swampy strew. Back via Beinn Bheag.Topographer5706/05/2019
Parked at turning circle at 10619 96779. Still space for lorries. Did Creag Mholach on the way.duchally09/01/2019
Meall Dubh and Creag Tharsuinn from Glen Massan using forestry track to gain height quickly. Visited the other tops close to tru summit, then returned along the ridge and descent by same route.RobertP27/08/2018
Did the SMC route in reverse as there was a forest track through large felled area which went high quickly. A good day, great views. I could even see The Ben.IanHHill16/05/2018

Solo with Lily the dog. A lovely snowy, bright, calm day with great visibility. Parked at Garvie farm entrance. Walked along the Cowal Way and used snowshoes to ascend to the top of the ridge. Back by same route.alexmaclennan10/12/2017
There is a new track from 088886 which zig zags up to the top of the forestry to a fence at 080879. It is very soft in places but preferable to the forest which has been felled. Very boggy ground above the forest.nicolajane23/10/2017
Approached from Glen Massan, following route in SMC Graham's book. Quite a spectacular hill.ger06/05/2017
Bike in to Garracha. Not helped by an put-of-date map and much new forestry work - planting and felling. More or less straight up from above Garracha on very rough track through felled forest. Past the trig point to main summit and then down forest as best I could to main stream and track back.dickscroop06/10/2015
1st of today from garvie along cowal way.robertphillips06/05/2014
Cycled to NS08872 89384. Crossed river - that might be difficult if in spate. Followed stream steeply to the bealach and then straightforward to summit. Descended steeply to the east to rejoin track near curious stone structure. Sunny.Martin R11/04/2012
