4of4: From Beinn Chaorach.ChrisR18/11/2018
Beinn Tharsuinn, Beinn Chaorach, Beinn a' Mhanaich from old road to S. Pleasant route but clouds down over tops for much of time. Nice descent down S ridge.RobertP20/12/2017
7th hill of 14 on an epic horseshoe of the Luss Hills from the Alderdale B&B in Luss, climbing Cruach Dubh, Beinn Ruisg, Creagan an Leinibh, Balcnock, Beinn Tharsuinn and Beinn Chaorach, descending easily then more steeply NW, I got halfway up then decided to have a lunch-break while sheltered with good views to the reservoir to the Sse. Really was a slog getting onto the ridge, used a grassy runnel to help. My gps recorded 729m @ NS26913 94606. After walking around to make sure I continued North for the tough descent and re-ascent close to fence-line towards Cruach an t-Sithein...Dazingdale03/10/2017
Good view of the naval dockyards at Faslane on the way down.ngthack08/05/2017
Surprisingly easy, straightforward route from Beinn Chaorach following the fence all the way. Descended south ridge, taking in Maol Fheidh (591m), descended east then walked across dam to reach track back to Auchengaich. Solo.Dangerous Dave12/11/2016
Solo trip on its own by south ridge. Excellent.Invicta1431/05/2016
Solo. Followed rough track, path higher up, up the south ridge to the summit of Beinn a' Mhanaich. Deviated to pass over summits of minor tops of Maol Fheidh 591m (very small cairn) and point 689m (no cairn). Returned same way, missing out deviations. Excellent views.pwbellarby16/04/2016
