|Solo from Glenbranter FC carpark cutting up a firebreak from the well made low forestry road. Low cloud, blowy, dry. 4 hours.||alexmaclennan||19/12/2017|
|With Gill Stevens; first of 12 hills picked off on the ridge from Glenbranter to Benmore. Left a car at Glenbranter forestry car park, followed path past Glenshellish Farm to NS 1270 9603 where a brutal assault of the hillside took place following a stream steeply up. On to the South Top.||jonglew||14/11/2017|
|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.||Gill||14/11/2017|
|From Glenbranter, the very end of rough track at NS120965 but still rough ground all the way.||Eddie||18/06/2014|
|long circuit from Glen Branter - out on Gowal cycle route before break up out of forest onto Tarsuinn ridge. Down to Glen Massan, before forest tarck up Beinn Mhor, Beinn Beag and finish over SM Cruach Bhuidhe before back through rides to start||nordicstar||27/08/2011|
|From Beinn Bheag. Downhill on more rugged stuff avoiding the sheer drops from above. Bealach now tree covered making it impossible to find the highest point. 13.45. Followed fence posts to their end under the final crag defending the top. Scrambling on steep grass and a slippery stone slide to the top at 14.20. No cairn. Old mast and metal lock up spoil this remote spot. To shorten the 800' renascent going back the way I had come up, went well down to forest edge to find the top track. Decided to use the stream bed in the forest where numerous fallen braches and debris made for very slow going. Slipped on slimy stuff on a boulder so tried a descent away from the stream through more mature trees and to upper track. Found an apparently easy gap in forest below. Wrong again! Fallen branches made progress virtually impossible. No-one would ever find me if I fell and hit my head! Through more brash to second track at 17.20. Coffee. 1 1/2 miles to collect bike. And to car. 3,000' - 17 miles||arranc||21/07/2010|
