From my long-awaited 2nd ascent of Ben Lomond, descending its N ridge, then through open, rough, country to the col at the north side of this hill; then an easy ascent, but a long, long walk back via Cailness and WHW to Rowardennan.IanHHill19/05/2018
From Inversnaid along WHW to Caliness, up track then across bogs and up. Steeper ascent than was expecting! Fine view point. Return same way.MichaelF18/05/2018
SMC route, boggy getting to foot of hill. On way back rather than follow fence went shortest distance back to track further east of fence which we thought better. With DD.rogreeves20/04/2017
From Inversnaid Hotel, via Cruachan. Return via track to Caliness and WHW. With 40-odd other people at the summit to celebrate Jen and Rick's final Marliyn. The 9th & 10th people to complete the list.Minto25/09/2016

Climbed up here with Rick and Jen on their final Marilyn with a large group of other baggers. Did the nearby Hump on route. Great day out.Well done Rick and Jen.assynt_bob25/09/2016
With Jenx and about 40 other good bagger friends on our final Marilyn. From Inversnaid, WHW to Cailness then track up to col. Wet thereafter over the col but ok. Great summit party in the shadow of Ben Lomond. On return aim for and stay with the deer fence to its turn then easy contour at 320m back to track. Great day and weather just about behaved itself!nordicstar25/09/2016
A fantastic day out with lots of friends to help us celebrate our final hill.jenx25/09/2016

#612 Summit party. Bagged the trig as well!tim74725/09/2016
From Inversnaid along WHW to a developing path a short way before Cailness Cottage which takes you up to the track.Follow this to a suitable point opposite the summit and plough across through boggy ground and long grass (knee length). Despite a sign just off the track and comments below I saw no sign of a fence until the old fence just below the summit. Easier to spot a line across the boggy ground in descent - take a few moments to spot the most useful deer tracks. Fine views to west particularly of The Cobbler South top which looks very impressive.dickscroop02/08/2016

walk from Rowardennan CraigW26/07/2014
From Inversnaid on West Littered Way to hole in fence marked with white tape at NN34147 06669 - otherwise climb over fence as track at Cailness is locked. Follow forest road until bridge at NN34840 06635 then follow new fence and old fence to the summit plateau. Or make your own way. It involves some descent and re-ascent and boggy ground whatever you do.Martin R26/02/2014
Looking for Midas with Holly and Abby. A gorgeous high cloud, light wind, sunny, day with fabulous views from Ben Lomond, round Glen Douglas hills, Arrochar and Crienlarich hills to Trossachs. Snow above 2000'. Rob Roy Carpark, Cruachan, Cruinn a Bheinn, Beinn Uamha, and back over the tops. New Deer fence needed to be jumped several times. 7 hours.alexmaclennan02/02/2013
second ascent was on a beautiful day with friends and elderly dog. No track from col but following fenceline seems to give easier ground.AlisonFox66 27/10/2012
Camped on summit on a beautiful evening after tough walk over the tops from Balmaha. Woke to mist....campagvelocet25/06/2012

Ascended from the B829 at Blairuskinmore. Headed on to re-ascend Ben Lomond.JohnW26/03/2002
Solo. From Rowardennnan Youth Hostel. I joined the normal path to Ben Lomond. There was much evidence of work having been done on the footpath. I descended via the NW ridge where there is now an obvious path. Where the path turns to the SW I swung north on untracked land to the summit cairn of Cruinn a’Bheinn. I retraced my steps to rejoin the path from Ben Lomond. This passes over Ptarmigan and descends southwards to join the track along Loch Lomond just north of Ben Lomond Cottage. This is effectively a new path. There are several stretches of new work, although in other places it is very muddy. The weather was dry all day but very windy. The only snow was a snow field on the NE side of the summit of Ben Lomond.pwbellarby11/03/2000
From Rowardennan along WHW to Cailness, then up to the high point of the track and up Cruinn a' Bheinn, then on to Ben Lomond and down Ptarmigan ridge.Gallovidian22/08/1999
