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

With Jenx, from the head of Glen Luss road, walked the old track all the way to the lonely farm that was Gleann na Caorainn. Followed the Scottish Rights of way track up to col and hacked up the fenceline to summit of a'Mhanaich. Back over neighbouring Graham Beinn Chaorach steeply and out down the top line into the Glen and out all way to Luss village, a good walk.nordicstar08/10/2015

Sunny day, frozen ground, light wind, good views. From easy parking in Glen Fruin.iangalbraith02/01/2011
Up along The Strone. Steep descent to col below Beinn Chaorach. Although the map suggests almost all of this was in a danger area, the area marked keep out on the ground is all west of the watershed on The Strone.campagvelocet14/04/2008
