From the Witches Pool, up the forestry track along the Gleann Cia-aig to Meall an t-Sagairt, across to Meall na h-Eilde and on to Meall Coire nan Saobhaidh, before doubling back to h-Eilde's west top and the big down and up to the fine ridge of Glas Bheinn. Got back on the forestry track by returning northwards to Coire na Cosaig, then eastwards to a dam over which it is possible to cross the Abhainn Chia-aig.summitter13/04/2019
Up from near Marine Harvest to 250m beyond dam, then up hillside, in 1br 40mins. Descent by same route.willyross01/03/2019
A lot of snow in forecast so settled for a shortish day. In fact most had come overnight so though deep on ground, and very soft (knee deep and thigh deep in the odd place) weather during walk was good. Path on map from Achnasaul was in fact a good track (beneath the snow). After 2 km left track to head straight up ridge. Very pleasant, just a bit of wind on summit.dickscroop29/01/2019
G and Aarthurwhittaker19/08/2018
Used the access track at Marine Harvest and then onto the footpath which runs to the back of the hill. I then just struck up the hill and round to the summit. There was around a foot of snow on the hill so it was a bit of a slog. Baltic but blue sky.Peterb07/01/2018
Parked on the verge at Marine Harvest, up the hydro track, and continued to the end of the rough and wrecked stalkers path in search of the lovely snowy ascent up the north side. Stunning views, and very wintery. Splendid. Met Bill and Janet at the top, and walked down in their excellent company.Gill12/11/2017
Track along Allt Dubh then direct ascent to summit. Sunshine and showers, good views.RobertP09/11/2017
Parked at the old road bridge that crosses Allt Dubh. Solo. Walked up the new track constructed in connection with hydroelectric works. Continued beyond the intake to about 400m before making a rising rightward traverse on to the SW slopes. An eagle circled overhead as I approached the summit of Glas Beinn. Descended directly to the vicinity of the intake to join my outward route. It was a beautiful sunny day once early mist covering the upper slopes of the hill had dispersed. Lying snow above 500m.pwbellarby03/03/2017

6 of 6: From Geal Charn.ChrisR11/09/2016
New hydro scheme makes for easy access to 400m on track then straight up hill to top. Inversion made for great virws. Sat in sun on top w Jenx watching the clouds slowly burn off. Back down SE ridge with swing right at 550m to descend to track and out.nordicstar18/03/2016
New track up on the west side courtesy of hydro scheme. Not very pretty. Went further on the old track then up the steep side through the fog and out of the cloud. Fantastic inversion. We spent an hour at the top sun bathing and enjoying the surreal scene?jenx18/03/2016
