Solo. From car park at Benmore Botanic Gardens along the private road to the water works on Loch Eck, continuing along the track that runs northwards close to Loch Eck. Shortly after Bernice took a left turn to go up Bernice Glen. Where the track turned south over a bridge over Bernice Burn, I left the track and ascended to Bealach Bernice, going firstly up the true righthand side of the burn and then mostly on the true lefthand side. I ascended the hillside southwards and joined the NE ridge of Beinn Mhòr where I found a narrow path. From Beinn Mhòr went down the SE ridge over five tops back to the Botanic Gardens.pwbellarby06/06/2018
Followed on from Beinn Bheag ,this was a steeper, but simpler ascent from Bealach Bernice. Then followed the south east plateau and ridge back down to the Botanic Garden CP. A long day.IanHHill14/05/2018

Glenbranter to Benmore ridge with Gill Stevens. 12 hills picked off. From Meal Breac S Top, and on to Capull Cloiche.jonglew14/11/2017
Glenbranter to Benmore, over Cruach Bhuidhe, Beinn Bheag, Beinn Mhor and various Tumps. The starting firebreak was very steep, slippy and nasty, except when you can get through the forestry. Would be quicker/easier/more pleasant to gain height by zig-zagging up the forest road. The walk over the hills is fairly rough, and there is quite a lot of up and down, especially towards the end of the Beinn Mhor ridge. A route for connoisseurs. Look out for Christmas decorations on the trees by the track leading down to Benmore.Gill14/11/2017

From Glen Massan, track and firebreak north to top of forest and up onto SW ridge. It is worth using GPS to mark the forest exit, which may otherwise be hard to locate when descending, even in clear conditions.Topographer5729/06/2006
End of public road in Glen Massan. 2 miles on access road to farm across stream on bridge into forest. Wolfie - long haired retriever - followed me to top of forest (he died in early 2007). On pleasant zig zags above side stream to right. No GPS signal. At top of path a guide post showed way ahead, but then stopped when they were most needed. In mist on compass following buggy track under the ridge of hill. Strong S wind. Over wet lank grass and rushy bits to top at 12.30. No view - mist.arranc01/10/2004
