|Ardlussa to Beinn Bhreac on a windy but dry day. The re-ascent to Dubh Bheinn seems to go on and on. Great views of nearby Humps. The return from DB made by following ATV tracks which took me South of Maol nan Damh so had to contour round that hill to regain the outgoing track. 18.5k.||NormanW||24/04/2019|
|Bhreac and Dubh Bheinn from Ardlussa. A tricky couple of summits with some complicated terrain in thick mist above 400ms so well-chuffed to locate both tops using my good old map and compass. By the way, the track marked on the OS map is nothing more than a boggy ATV track which goes to just below the summit of Bhreac. From Bhreac to Dubh Bheinn, took a SW bearing then up from lochan following burn to 2 tiny lochans just below summit.||AndrewFinnimore||26/03/2019|

|Despite Jim's bloomer we eventually found the right top, starting from the bridge over the Lussa.||Martin R||11/06/2012|
|As Martin states but at least the twin point of point 477 looks like a P30 !
GR8 walking condition underfoot with lovely views. Walking with Jim Bloomer & Martin Richardson.||Dugswell2||11/06/2012|
|Pleasant and straightforward walk from Beinn Bhreac, via outlet of Loch Tigh-Sealga. Then not such a pleasant slog back to the car south of Loch Shiffin via rubbish overgrown ATV tracks.||Owen B||23/08/2008|
|Parked two miles beyond Tarbert. On very broad peaty track through forest. out of forest over 500m on buggy trails past another lochan to Sidhean Tarsuinn. Another mile and plod uphill to lochan before final mile to top. Flat section around brow of a side hill contoured over rolling tussock and straight plod up on green bits to visible horizon and to left to top at 14.50. 5 hrs to car.||arranc||02/05/2007|
