With Dave Laidlaw.Peterb13/09/2019
From Lochgoilhead with Smithy & a stinking cold for company. After a morning deluge of biblical proportions, the sun briefly appeared & we set off following the Cowal Way past some spectacular water courses up to the tree line. Continued following the marker posts as the path leads diagonally up & across the hillside to a prominent mound. From here faint paths lead upwards, becoming easier to follow after passing a large boulder. Improvement in the weather didn't extend to a view from the summit. Back by the same route where we did get a great view from the bealach.NotReallyABagger09/08/2019
An anti-clockwise circuit from Ardgarten. On own.MorecambeMonkey25/06/2019
With M. from Loch Long side. Nice easy one after the Cobbler the day before. Perhaps as well as it was blowing a gale on the top. Very strong winds the next day too and we skipped Beinn an Lochain.douglas_easton29/09/2018

From Lochgoilhead. Cowal Way to the top edge of the planation, then straight up. Lovely day, great views, nice summit.Owen B14/05/2018
Walked up from Lochgoilhead as per SMC Guide. Timing up is an error, but overall time was about right for me.IanHHill13/05/2018

Walked from Coilessan car park, included the Brack after before returning to the start. A misty and atmospheric day.Chris Mac07/04/2018
From Coilessan car park. Was supposedly to have been a quick bag, but thick snow hindered progress as I was the first to break trail. Whiteout and greyout conditions, but not much wind or rain.Jhimmy16/02/2018

With The Brack. From car park above Coilessan.Bobf30/08/2017
Ardgartan - N corrie of the Brack - Cruach Fhiarach - The Brack - Cnoc Coinnich - returned via Coillessan Glen. Relatively easy walking between the two Marilyns. The Cowal Way across the col is marked by a line of white posts. Fine summit.Mark Jackson23/08/2017
Corbett completion for the second time. First time 2007. Very windy on top, great views of our original stomping ground.softsquare12/08/2017
From Ardgarten and forest tracks. Sunny with superb views.Winterfloodian18/07/2017
From Coilessan, a cracking day to be on the hills.Alan12/07/2017
From Coilessan. Huge forest road to its end at 300m, then Cowal Way to plateau/col. Direct from here to my last Corbett - again - thought I'd finished them 10 years ago on Beinn Bhuidhe in Knoydart. Then across to The Brack SW Top.Aye Jimmy06/07/2017

High, wind, hail, snow; a quick dash and grab!MichaelF20/03/2017
42nd Solo. From Arrochar as a detour off the walk through to Lochgoilhead along the Cowal Way. Ascent of NW ridge to summit. Snow down to 400m, snow 1-2ft deep in many places on ridge to summit. Some hill fog, cloud level varying 500 650m, dry, gusting on summit.RGibbs08/02/2017
A nice walk from Lochgoilhead. Very pleasant forest path, and then an easy stroll onto the ridge. The gaelic name is very apt - it really is a mossy knoll.Gill17/12/2016
From Coilessan in company with Tom. Very muddy route through forest as road being improved for logging possibly. Otherwise a nice straightforward route with good views. Felt a bit disorientated as looking at Arrochar Alps from a new perspective. Would do again.munromurph28/11/2016
Cnoc Coinnich, The Brack SW Top then contour onto Cruach Fhiarach from Coilessan. Last Corbett (again).jimbloomer24/11/2016

Round of Coinnich and Brack from Coilessan car park.Topographer5717/09/2016
A damp ascent into cloud to summit with minimal views till halfway down. Last Corbett!oatcake04/09/2016
Cnoc Coinnich, Beinn Reithe, The Steeple E top and The Steeple from Lochgoilhead. Good paths and easy climb to Cnoc Coinnich. Seemed a long way to Beinn Reithe with its 2 tops (N one probably slightly higher than outcrop by trig). Took in the two tops of The Steeple on the way back. The Steeple is impressive rocky feature with excellent views down to Lochgoilhead and the mountains beyond.RobertP28/08/2016
Solo walk/jog from Coilessan. Last Corbett - again!amswanston10/07/2016
Solo trip from Coilessan side, highly recommended. A very scenic perch.Invicta1403/06/2016
A good round including Beinn Reithe from Lochgoilhead. Straightforward until final descent where I had to ad lib a bit to get back to initial track but no problems.dickscroop12/10/2015
From LochgoilheadMartin R30/04/2014
Brute of a day w cold easterly a gusting up over the main ridge. Thick mist from 450m made the nav just a bit interesting. Climb date was 29/03/14, altered to show true Corbett completion date (before the Graham reclassification)nordicstar12/10/2013
Lovely sunny Sunday morning walk with Susan, Jenny and Holly. From Coilessan Glen carpark, take the Coilessan Glen road and then Cowal Way path to the foot of the ridge. Easy ascent. 4 hours.alexmaclennan02/06/2013
Solo. From lochgoilhead along track/path towards Ardgartan. Marked by some white posts high up. Went somewhat to the right of NW ridge of Cnoc Coinich to keep out of strong winds and gingerly up snow slopes to summit. Continued to Beinn Reithe.pwbellarby08/04/2013

Up Coilessan Glen, then left parents at col with The Brack for lunch while I hurried to the top. Steep but good underfoot after gaining the NW ridge. From the col to the ridge wasn't as wet as I had feared.campagvelocet06/08/2009
Ascended from Lochgoilhead through the forest and up the north ridge. Headed then for Beinn Reithe.JohnW11/06/2008
