After Beinn nan Lus, dropped to the fine suspension bridge at GR 152369, then crossed the moor heading for a single tree higher up. From here went more or less straight up past a holly and into a burn line which becomes an incut valley. Leads through a few rocky edges easily to summit. Back same way to be met at road by Alistair the local Ghillie from Ardmaddy who kindly gave us and bikes a lift back to Inverawe smokery CP.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. Region 3 complete!jenx11/09/2016

Cycled from Inverawe CP and then meandered up to the summit in the heat.Martin R10/06/2015
Using the route from the new Grahams book, I logged 19km, 1260m ascent, rather than the 15.5km, 1160m stated in the book. Parked just a few yards in on the track - there is a sign saying no vehicles further on, but a couple of parking spaces near the start. Great day, super weather, and the descent down the ridge from Beinn Lurachan is lovely, despite being hard on the knees.nicolajane09/06/2015

Parked off B8077. Hot work up hill on buggy tracks, many footprints gave re-assurance after 3 walks without. A mile traverse on flat contour to col before M Beithe. Across a massive stream cut gorge on NW side of hill and a further long drop to cross a fence in a 1500' col. Final 800' clamber to top at 13.10. Heat haze to 8 miles.arranc13/04/2007
