Cowal way on map isn't as it is on the ground. Follow the way posts, not your map.ngthack09/05/2017
Solo walk with Holly and Lily. We followed Cowal Way from Lettermay to Curra Lochain then straight up hillside and back. Strong cold wind, dry, low cloud but sunshine on top. 4 hoursalexmaclennan03/01/2017
From Lettermay, up SE face per Dempster. Debris from recent fellings, long wet grass and crags all contributed in turn to make this an arduous and uncomfortable ascent with not enough daylight left for planned continuation to Cruach nam Miseag.Topographer5702/11/2016

From Lettermay the map not much use for forest roads.Steep ascent through brash to east top and then main one. Great mountain though.Martin R02/05/2014
From Stob na Boine Druim-fhinn. This is an awkward hill to get off, surrounded by steep cliffs and felled forest. We headed east to col avoiding crags then south to east end of lochan. A short section of felled forest then leads to ATV track at 16312 99636.Lionel Bidwell10/09/2013
W Jenx, from Lettermay, via Corrow and steep break in trees (now felled) to ridge. From Stob na Boine DF easy over Tharsuinn to Beinn Lochain. Steep down, through now felled trees & new tracks direct to Corrow. Great views!nordicstar29/04/2012
