Round of Bhreac and Dubh from Ardlussa, route and time agreed with local stalkers. From Bhreac via Loch Tigh Sealga, then back down to TS, NE up to 330m and down on 8WD Ardlussa track.Topographer5717/09/2019
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.NormanW24/04/2019
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.AndrewFinnimore26/03/2019

Despite Jim's bloomer we eventually found the right top, starting from the bridge over the Lussa.Martin R11/06/2012
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.Dugswell211/06/2012

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 B23/08/2008
