Beinn Damhain and Maol Breac from Glen Falloch. Good track to small hydro dam then trackless ground. Very hot sunny day but pleasant breeze on tops. Good views to Arrochar Alps.RobertP25/08/2019
Single parking space at bottom of hydro track. When reached dam, headed straight for summit. Just over 2 hours up.willyross07/06/2019

Solo. From Inverarnan. Along road to start of track at NN319197, then up track. Given a lift part way up track by some construction workers. At track fork walked along track going SW to its end at a water intake. Went up the hill along the burn coming down from Lochan Beinn Daimh. Then ascended NE ridge of Beinn Daimh to reach the summit. Highest point is 3m SW of cairn. Descended N to col near a lochan and then went E to join my outward route which was followed back to Inverarnan. My descent route from the summit was not the best as the ground is rough and tussocky. Dry but some mist high up.pwbellarby31/08/2018

With GHC instead of the Corbett across the glen. Easy but boggy conditions. Good views from an impressive top.Play2End14/08/2016
With Vic. From Glen Falloch. Then Garabal Hill.ngthack19/03/2016
With Jenx from Glen Falloch, used WB track to high point then the burn line to gain soggy height. Out over the tops keep to a southerly line to avoid to much up and down. Back down taking in Garabal Hill.nordicstar25/08/2015
Did after Meall an Fhudair. I noticed when driving past on 26/04/17 that parking is no longer possible opposite Glen Falloch Farm.duchally02/04/2015
2nd attempt on Beinn Damhain (NN 281173) S/F NN 319196 Much better visibility this year with only patchy snow making walking easier. Reached final approach to sumit but decided against climb due possible difficulty of descent on wet slushy snow and rock. Have identified less steep route by ascent of west ridge. Frequent showers, of snow on higher ground, breezy and cold.John Young01/02/2015
