Sligrachan Hill and Beinn Ruadh from minor road to N. Good forest tracks to reach open hillside and ATV track most pof the way to the summit of Sligrachan Hill. Pleasant walk along ridge to Beinn Ruadh, after which there were increasing clearances providing excellent views across Loch Eck. Descent by the same route, bypassing summit of Sligrachan Hill to the W.RobertP24/02/2019
Walked up from Inverchapel CP as per SMC Guide. Simple route but very steep at times. Only day of the week without super views. Good lunch in Garden Café afterwards.IanHHill15/05/2018

From Inverchapel CP, bridge over the stream, right then left up stepped path to open hillside. After that the best route is unclear but all routes are steep.Topographer5724/02/2018

Sun 4/9 - Beinn Ruadh - from Gairletter layby opposite start of Forestry track - interestingly boggy on top - return by a different track coming out at quadbike centre/farmmnph04/09/2016
Didn't find best route up, much thrashing through bracken to gain ridge. Returned rather closer to Inverchapel burn high up but still I am sure not the best.dickscroop10/10/2015

From Inverchapel. A very slow and nasty thrash through 8' tall dense bracken for 3 hours and return by Puck's Glen. There must be an easier way! 9 1/4 hrs.arranc27/06/2014

From Inverchapel Forestry Carpark. Followed Red banded poles till second gate then straight up. Steep but easy underfoot walking onto ridge. Long ascent to S Top then easily to Trig. Came straight down steep bracken and craggy face to white banded poles. Misty and light rain on tops. 2 1/2 hoursalexmaclennan22/09/2013
