With Tom. From car about 200m NE of farm gate (8:05) up track by bridge, finally zig-zagging back on track to end of SE ridge. Ascended (path only at top) and along ridge to summit. Cloud and light snow cleared just in time for view. Back along ridge (retrieving dropped GPS), down to col and steeply up to summit. Cloud and light rain on top. Pleasant ridge walk down with very steep final descent. Back to car 14:10dbb28/04/2017
From the B8077 by Castles Farm. Plenty of Hieland Coos for company at the start and on returning from Beinn Eunaich. A steep climb up the SE ridge. Excellent views of Loch Etive and the Cruachans from just west of the summit.Nick Down108/10/2016
Euans 2nd Munro. Hot day, nice easy walk in on the track then very steep initially decided on a food stop after 200m,just to break up the climb. Wisps of cloud swirled around when we got to the 881m marker cairn Euan loved this being upin the clouds. Clear views from the summit. Not much in the way of wildlife spotted other than sheep & meadow pippits & a few red deer on the descent but they were way below on the Coire Glas sideLizzieG29/08/2016

Last day of a week long heat wave...Standard route including Beinn Eunaich. A good round with views over Cruachan and out to Mull, the Etive group and beyond.Roblex28/05/2012
From the B8077 at Castles Farm and up the south-east flank to gain the summit ridge. Any wispy cloud had cleared on reaching the summit.Windy Corner20/05/2012
With David. Cycled up Hydro-electric access track past Castles Farm. Ascended steep spur to main ridge. Sunny on top with views across Loch Etive to Connel Bridge and to Ben Starav.robhenderson24/04/2012
With RH by bike linked to Beinn Eunain. After reaching first summt a ridge traverse in full view of Ben Cruachan, light snow covering to bring us to Beinn s'Chochuill. Cold but clear easy return via water gate in warming sunshine. A relentless cycling descent at great speed, skirting the cows pen on return to find brakes burning. Completing a 7 ppeak 3 day effort. Visited Inerawe Smokery, celebrated Graham's birthday by phone and headed to Isle of Seil via Bridge over Atlantic to Tighe and Truish and is unlikely accommodation. Great Cullen Skink, empty but classical bar. We concluded a great trip with minimal injury.david.walker4024/04/2012
