From Glen Douglas CP east of Invergroin, cycle west to 296990 then heavy going detour around the eastern perimeter of the area closed off by the military. Above the top of this area, a bridge with yellow railings and two red lifebuoys crosses the Cona Ghleann, from where the north ridge can be gained.Topographer5729/03/2018

8th Hill of 14 on an epic 14 hill horseshoe from the Alderdale B&B in Luss, climbing Cruach Dubh, Beinn Ruisg, Creag an Leinibh, Balcnock, Beinn Tharsuinn, Beinn Chaorach and Beinn a'Mhainich, descending steeply Nne before profiling around to the fenceline to climb up past Conifer woodland taking regular breaks before reaching the relatively small summit area complete with cairn. My gps recorded the summit as 689m @ NS 27519 96480. Wind speed high so did not stay long. Headed off NE towards Beinn Lochain...Dazingdale03/10/2017

Cruac t-Sidhein (NS 275964) S/F NS 296991. Deceptively tiring for a hill of such modest stature. Detour round MOD base followed by steep ascent. Lot of contouring in to valley and useful bridge at about 270 m height. Second relatively steep ascent to ridge then along ridge to summit. Cold day with very strong freezing wind at summit. Broken cloud varying in height, summit clear on approach but hill fog when there limiting visibility. Snow coving sheltered slopes to about 350 m Knees and ankles ache for 1st time in years from contouring.John Young01/01/2013
