From Glenbranter, biked to top of forest, though trees, usual brutal Argyll terrain. Hot and partly sunny.iangalbraith14/07/2019
Glenbranter, Creag Tharsuinn, Beinn Mhor, Beinn Bheag, Cruach Buidhe, Glenbranter.PGCE22/05/2019
From Glenbranter. After Tharsuinn, cycled up to 113934 and up the west face. Forest mostly cleared but debris still remains. Awesome views down to Loch Eck. A few light hailstones. Returned to cycle and direct descent northwards back to start.Topographer5706/05/2019
From Benmore Botanic Gardens CP.ChrisR31/08/2018
From Benmore Botanic Garden CP as per SMC Guide. I didn't like the route up from the Bealach, too much backtracking. My route down went between Meall Breac and Pt 534m and I think this would be an easier ascent route. Then on up to Beinn Mhor.IanHHill14/05/2018

Solo from Glenbranter FC carpark cutting up a firebreak from the well made low forestry road. Low cloud, blowy, dry. 4 hours.alexmaclennan19/12/2017
Glenbranter to Benmore ridge with Gill Stevens. 12 hills picked off. From Cruach Bhuidhe S Top, and on to Meal Breac.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
Solo, with Beinn Mhor, from Glen Branter.amswanston09/06/2017
Bike in to Bernice then a round of Beinn BHeag, Beinn Mor and Clach Bheinn. After initial bealach roughish going to this first summit through a lot of old bracken and long grass/tussocks. Straightforward after that to final summit then an awkward descent through crags and forest - did not I think pick the best line.dickscroop04/10/2015
