c/w route of a chruach and ard bheinn from cp at glenloig.robertphillips15/05/2016
4th hill of 8 today on a route from High Dougarie back to Brodick climbing Beinn Lochain, Cnoc a 'Choire moir and after an unintended detour to Garb Thorr, descending into a field through rough pasture onto a track and over a bridge over the Garrb Allt and onto the String road where i had my packed lunch. Ascended next to a burn and slogged my way upto the summit. Hard-going and becoming increasingly windy.Dazingdale07/05/2016
From high point on road. Steep climbing then soggy ground cutting across to and contouring to A'Chruach. Around then over the Breac to Ard Bheinn. Down direct to road and a hitch up the road back to car.nordicstar19/04/2016
After the Marilyn, and then down to the road. Nice birch woods down by the river easy to get through, and probably better than forestry on the other side.jenx19/04/2016
With Ian Brown. Bumped into Jon Metcalf and Alan Dawson who had been measuring the top of the hump and were on their way to the coltallblond18/04/2016
Out and back from the Machrie road junction. Rough to start.Eddie21/05/2015
As a circular route starting with the Marilyn A'Chruach, from the forestry car park at the high point of the String road. Up forest ride through conifer forestry in Glen Craigag to A'Chruach, then over Creagan Liatha, bypassing Beinn Bhreac to the north, and up Ard Bheinn - found a quad bike track halfway up that made the rest of the ascent easy. The trig point is inside a stone shelter & has recently been repainted - looks rather "2001 - A Space Odyssey"! Also a big cairn which I think is the true summit. Good viewpoint.milngavie_kenny08/11/2012
