From forestry car park up waterfall trail then round and up side of forest. Picked up ATV track further up and easy going from there (deer fence is not - it's a normal one). Came back by atv all the way to tack. Brilliant views.SS11/06/2019
Up and down ridge from Inchree via edge of forest as per smc book. Great views down Loch.daviemore13/05/2019
Staying low today to avoid the worst of the wind - still pretty rough on the tops though.atreides788715/03/2019
With Peter J. Parked near the lochan outlet. Faint path diagonally uphill WSW.Owen B22/02/2019
Along the ATV track to Beinn na Gucaig's two tops and back. Superb views down Loch Linnhe.summitter19/01/2019
From InchreeBLACKHILL24/06/2018
Like others,from Inchree following the red trail and then the ATV track to Pt 575, paths more indistinct after that. Rather overcast and not a very interesting hill.milimana23/06/2018
With M. Warm day with some sun. Fantastic views of Ben Vair, the Glencoe hills and the Ben, with many people visible on the pony track.douglas_easton19/05/2018
Used ATV track mentioned by iangalbraith. Follow red route from Inchree car park to NN 03248 63038 and up ATV track to Pt 575, then no path but terrain OK.Lionel Bidwell18/05/2018
Alone, from Inchree. Saw dogsledders on track.Grinner06/01/2018
Circuit from minor road to Lundavra, parking fairly close to dam. Direct climb to Meall nan Cleireach, along ridge to Beinn na Gucaig, then steep descent E and long climb to Doire Ban (mound to S of top can't be much lower). Descent NNE and cross ford close to outlet of loch (could be tricky if water level higher). Rainy day.RobertP08/11/2017
From Inchree, taking in the waterfall viewpoint. Deer track helps in the rough section by the forest before the ATV track is reached. Horrible descent east to the forest road; returning along the ridge would be better. Galltywenallt29/09/2017
From Inchree. Past waterfalls then up old MTV tack mentioned by ianglabraith (thanks, good tip). Then over knoll to north toenter forest at 056659. Though trees then forest track back to Inchree. Good circhit, much nicer than previous reports suggested. Great views of Loch Linnhe and the BenClive G11/05/2017

From Inchree, up forest track to 03280 63025 where an old atv track goes up the ridge and most of the way to summit. Otherwise, terrain is hideous. Mild, sun and cloud, strong freezing wind, good views.iangalbraith13/10/2016

Parked on Lundavra road, just above dam, good parking area. Limited space to farm. Direct up hill side to NW, gaining main ridge, then to the 5H. Along ridge to Graham summit on good turf. Fine views, on around the glen to Marilyn on far side.nordicstar14/02/2015

Early morning walk before going on to longer things in the afternoon. From layby next to cattle grid, through farm on track to left then worked way up to ridge finding the gates on the way. In cloud the false tops were a bit of a problem.dickscroop05/01/2015

From Inchree through forest then up to Beinn na Gucaig from SE, then on to Doire BanGallovidian09/06/2011
Revisit. From Lundavran, Private sign presumably doesnt relate to walkers. Sheep trods lead much of way to summit; a pretty flower-studded ascent. Fine Linnhe view. Was planning to go on to Mullach nan Coirean to meet Chris Armour for the end of his Ramsay Round, but took a call to say he had pulled out - hard luck Chris. Bagged the SW top before heading down.RHW14/06/2009
