Cycled in from Inverawe to the Allt Hallater in Glen Kinglass. Then up through bracken and wet grass to join ridge to summit. Returned by same route.NormanW04/07/2017
Parked at the Lochawe smokery, some SMC guides mention a country park which doesn't exist. Smokery ok with parking there. Up the Lochawe track there is a car park 200m in which we didn't see till on our way. The track itself is 'interesting' as others describe. 2 hrs of pedaling required at least. Met the local Ghillie Alistair from Ardmaddy who advised us to go up the Narrachan burn behind the bothy. Keeping to the West/true left bank a path makes good progress until above the waterfall and gorge. Crossing the burn here 2km of easy ground leads you to the summit, passing over a minor top. We descended as guide books suggest the SE ridge above the Allt Hallater. It provides a much worse line than the way up, rough wet ground, small crags, deer grass with limited lines through. Up Meall Garbh afterwards, then as Alistair offered to run us back to Inverawe in his 4x4 we gladly accepted. Still a big day out :-)nordicstar11/09/2016
Two good Grahams climbed today from Glenkinglass. Lower slopes can be tussocky, but managed to find good routes up both hills. A beautiful spot. Helped by advice and a lift from Alistair.jenx11/09/2016
Cycled in from Inverawe, good track but more ups and downs than one would hope for to Glen Kinglass. Traverse of Beinn nan Lus, superb weather, no wind, blue skies and stunning views. 15cm of soft snow above 400m. Summit cairn. Rock a coarse grained granite.RichardM27/02/2016

From tent at head of Glen Kinglass, quite a long way but mainly on good track made it easy. Path heading up valley doesn't amount to much (in any case I missed it on way up) so pick your own route.dickscroop30/03/2014

Ascended from Glen Etive by first crossing the bealach between Ben Starav and Glas Bheinn Mhor, which is higher than the summit of Beinn nan Lus itself. Descended to reach summit Beinn nan Lus by ascending north ridge and then the west. Amazingly bumped into two other walkers doing the same route. Returned the same way.JohnW13/06/2008
