From access track to quarry then direct to Torr Leathan and onto summit. Took direct line down to bridge beside the quarry. Not the most exciting of hills but a nice viewpoint.benalder28419/07/2020
From car park, up track almost to quarry then up to Torr Leathann and on to Beinn Tharsuinn. Light rain, misty so intermittent views.MichaelF22/07/2019
2 of 10: From Torr Leathann.ChrisR07/06/2019
With: solo; Parked at NH659777 and followed the muddy quarry track (ignoring signs) to the quarry then round north of the quarry up to the north east ridge of Torr Leathann. This ridge was nice to the big cairn at the top. Unfortunately it started raining heavily before I crossed the very peaty bealach then climbed up to Beinn Tharsuinn. I descended off east from this to avoid the wet peaty bealach on return. The quarry track was wetter and even more muddy on the return. The dumper trucks are massive!Ian Baines30/05/2019
An afternoon stroll on the way to Dornoch. Up the hideous quarry track, which seems to be freshly bulldozed,to the bridge below the top quarry, over this and then off piste direct to the top. Easy going across the bone dry bogs, and only a relatively short section of spongy vegetables once on the ridge. Path visible on the way down but peters out in the vegetables. A seriously messed up hill, with 2 quarries, power lines, forestry, new planting, nasty track and a wind farm to cap it all.Gill18/04/2019
From Torr Leathann was easy enough. A direct descent to the bridge at 630795. The track was wet and muddy back to the B9176. About a 4 hour solo return.bolton18/02/2019

Large car park NH 660777 followed track up the hill to quarry it was a sunday so nobody about can't see there being any conflict with quarrypersons would be easy to avoid & track doesn't go through gravel pit near car park. Up Torr Leathann, Beinn Tharsuinn & 22 minutes (in hot dry conditions)across to former twin Sidhean a' Choin Bhainrogreeves01/07/2018
Large dirt parking area (NH 6599 7765). Excellent track to disused quarry, then direct to Torr Leathann and over to here on snow-covered ground. On to the de-twinned top, Sidhean a' Choin Bhain.jonglew07/04/2018

i stopped at the car park grid nh66058/77670 and followed a rather iced up path as far as the bridge nh62963/79437 after the recent snow and now the melt had started it was a little boggy at the start as i climbed torrleathan but soon dried the higher i got and the heather this way was a lot shorter . great views from the cairn at the top..Turn northwest for the short descent to the bealach there is a path which soon gets lost in the peat hags and after a short climb i reached beinn thasuinn no views from here with the cloud down and the snow on the ground was struggling to determine what was sky and what was ground :) i head across a broad reach to the other 692m summit just to ensure i had completed the the hill ..head straight down over the snowfields boggy at the bottom but soon on the main pathmikebeattie26/01/2018

Showery day, cloud just above tops. Elected to cycle the turbine cluster road. Reasonable gradient, turbine 5 closest to col at 525m. Left bikes and climbed the former twin before the main top then the sub. Contoured back to bikes for a speedy descent.nordicstar27/07/2016
Easy cycling to the wind farm. Very squelchy from there but at least it was short!jenx27/07/2016
Used wind farm road to gain height in drizzle then followed trench system to north top and on to coll before easier ascent of Graham. Descended on an angled descent on bearing to wind farm and back to car.SS11/06/2016

From the large vehicle park at Strath Rory, cycled up track which ends at a sand quarry, then up the NE ridge of Torr Leathann before cutting across to the col, where a considerable detour to the south was required to avoid crossing a treacherous peat hag. Featureless summit, hazy sunshine, strong east wind, a clearer day would have been better.Topographer5723/08/2015
