Misty but still - long walk in from Ariundledavechaffey29/11/2018
Over Corran Ferry, hoped for a lift on road but very little traffic so walked with all my camping gear. A rough track up Glen Gour, glad I did not bring my bike despite the road walk.Pitched tent then up and down Beinn na h-Uamha. Quite steep but no real problems. track in and hill both pretty wet as was my tent pitch!dickscroop26/10/2018
Cycled up Glen Gour. Track is very poorly drained and, higher up, very stony. At end of track I forded the river in crocs. Ascent mostly grassy steps but is quite steep in places.Topographer5719/08/2018

From Sallachan. After we left the right of way in Glen Gour we saw more Green Hairstreak butterflies than bootprints. The ascent felt as though it was against the grain of the land, though it was up the broad ESE ridge. Warm, sunny,fabulous visibility.pwheeler24/05/2013

MC JC. A great wee peak that has impressive defences. All of its height is well earned. Approach via Glen Gour. HArd going through deep, wet grass and rocks and false tops. CAme across a grass snake. Return via same direction. JC came across a knot of about 10 adders. Loads of black butterflies, newts, frogs and some birds I did not recognise.Martin6619/08/2007

Ascended from Glen Gour. Evidence of an eagle's eyrie on the summit.JohnW29/05/1994
Cairngorm Club Easter meet based at Spean Bridge. With two fellow members. Across the Corran Ferry to the old bridge at Sallachan. From there we walked along the track up Glen Gour. Two swans were seen on Loch na Gabhar. Beyond the track end we crossed the River Gour near its confluence with Allt an t-Sluichd. We climbed a prominent grassy rake on the SE corner of Beinn na h-Uamha, not far from the burn confluence. Went up further grassy rakes, over point 460m* and so on to the summit of Beinn na h-Uamha. Returned to the valley bottom of the River Gour more directly, going a little S of SE. Followed the valley and the track back to the car. Good views of Ben Vair and Bidean nam Bian. *Note added 2016: named Stob an Uillt Dharaich on recent OS maps.pwbellarby03/04/1993
