Parked at Glen Artney Church car park, then walked up Findhu Glen, then ascenting up Beinn nan Eun (no cairn only a wooden post). Over Beinn Odhar then up to Uamh Bheag to see the carved wood face! Descenting via Meall Clachach, I stupidly carried on down the north face of Am Beannan was far too steep for comfort. The peat hags were extensive across the tops. Sunny intervals with a moderate breeze all day.chillyman807/06/2020
From church car park in Glen Artney, W along road to bridge over Water of Ruchill, then across fields and up An Beannan, on to Meall Clachach, Uamh Bheag, then E to trig point and E top, then Beinn Odhar and Beinn nan Eun, descending N to bridge over river S of Auchnashelloch and back to car parkkdbennett21/03/2020
From parking at Glen Artney road end. Had planned hill to North but there was stalking there so headed south on East bank of Water of Ruchill then up An Beannan and south to summit cairn. Not a bad route for this hill.willyross19/09/2019
The 2nd of 4 on an anticlockwise circuit of the Donalds above Glen Artney. Parked in the church car park at 711461 & up Meall Clachan. From Meall Clachan, followed path to left of fence which bypasses the peat hags in col & heads up to summit next to cairn & fence junction. Continued to Beinn Odhar. (S)gerrybowes20/08/2019
Contnued along fence S from Meall Clachach to UB summit; first phase lunch. Turned E along fence to reach trig pillar and went out N to putative and unmarked top of UB (663.4). Returned ESE to fence and down to peat hags, close to windfarm, struggling NNE through deep hags to head for Beinn Odhar. Weather continued fine with a little more W wind. Second visit, also solo, to UB was on 17/10/2015.jacobus08/07/2019

Followed SMC Grahams and Donald circuit: Am Beannan - Meall Clachach - Uamh Bheag W and E tops - Beinn Odhar - Beinn nan Eun. Rime on the ground helped with the peatier sections. Otherwise Spring-like, with a skein of geese flying North, bright sun and a cloud inversion.Nick Down121/01/2017

With Jenx from below East Bracklin (Easter Brackland on map). Then track all way past Middle Bracklin which continues as a fine track all the way to GR67522 10854, within 2km of top.

Visited the Auld Kirk at Achnashelloch before starting walk. Lovely crisp morning with frost covering the ground. Wasn't expecting the wind turbines (due to using old map). one of them scared me to death when it suddenly loomed from the mist.thenomad08/12/2009
