from Ballimore, via bridge and pleasant B o Turk path as far as bend, stayed W crossing river easily then up long, rough E ridge. Returned same route, 4.5 hrs. Friday afternoon and hill to self. Views limited in prolonged sleet.niallp10/05/2019
Beinn Stacath from Loch Voil Hostel via good path up Bealach Driseach and over Ceann na Baintighearna. Descended by forest tracks from Coire Odhar.davidpettit8422/04/2019
Plenty of parking 500m north of Ballimore, from which a track leads SW. Before reaching a deer gate a normal gate can be scaled, enabling a pretty straightforward climb to the Creag Mhor ridge. There a couple of false tops before the actual summit s reached, then onwards to Creag an Fhiog. Superb views up and down Loch Voil make up for the boggy Bealach Driseach, from where the ascent to Ceann na Baintighearna takes you to drier ground. Turning south to Beinn Stachach (or whatever you choose to call it) takes you alongside a couple of derelict fences (why don't landowners remove these once defunct?) to a small stone cairn (which I rebuilt) just to the east of the trig. Its all down hill from here, taking in the East top before reaching the bridge over the Allt Fathan Glinne, and an ever expanding track back to the start. Met Pete R back at the car - always nice to say hello to a fellow bagger!summitter30/03/2019

Lovely day. Snow above 600m. Saw my first skylark this year.iansm24/03/2018
Looked a simple Corbett on map, but in whiteout conditions it became a nightmare. Lost twice, before using a gps to get back to a known spot and then a straight vector up the east ridge. Then spoilt by 2 locked gates on return with high climbing of fences. Loads of stalking signs up in March!Jhimmy11/03/2018
Beinn Stacach and Creag Mhor plus a couple of sub-Tumps(Ceann na Baintighearna East Top,Creag an Fhiog)from parking at bridge E end Loch Voil. Walk along S of loch then good path to bealach Driseach and access to the hills. Good route, this avoids any significant boggy terrain.RobertP27/08/2017
Started from small parking area about a mile along the track beyond Loch Voil hostel. Track then a reasonable combination of fire breaks up to Stob Breac, nicely south along the ridge to An Stuchd across to Taobh na Coille seeing a badger on the way at about 1.00pm in the open then north to Beinn Stacach. In descent missed best line I think due to misplacing my compass, so a bit of a struggle through the trees.dickscroop05/11/2016
A very nice walk from Muirlaggan, on an excellent path to Bealach Driseach. After a bit of bog-bashing and a steep climb, there's a nice ridge with stunning views, which joins on to the main summit ridge at Ceann na Baintighearna. Unfortunately, the views then disappeared into mist,and the walk along the ridge was cold, wet and exceedingly windy for August. The trig point is perfectly angled to provide not even the slightest hint of shelter from a westerly, so I had to wait until back at Bealach Driseach for my summit cup of tea :-(Gill13/08/2016
Camped on the summit. Great weather and amazing sunrise. Tricky walk in with fairly steep parts with no obvious path.Stevend128/05/2016
From Ballimore, following the south side of the Calair Burn until reaching the bridge which led to the broad east ridge and then up to the pillar on the summit. Clear conditions throughout.Windy Corner25/05/2015
