With Dave Laidlaw and Fara.Peterb30/10/2019
Up tree-lined gully from first house on Glasnock track (south side stream initially then north side, reached fence posts, followed to loch then headed for summit. Interesting hill, much easier than expected. Animal tracks most of the way.willyross07/05/2019
Up the west ridge, it's a rugged mountain but the ground is good. Back over 597m tump and on down to two small lochans from which a rough track leads down to Cnoc Nam Broic, then direct descent NW.Topographer5708/06/2018
Solo trip from Glasnock. The fence line running SE up to Creag Ghlas is probably the best line of ascent.Invicta1418/05/2018
Solo W-E traverse, with Glas Bheinn.amswanston06/05/2018
Parked by the dustbins. Towards GAlsnock but almost immediately set off up easy slopes to Cnoc nam Broc where I picked up a good track ascending into the corrie. Branched off towards Lochan Meall na Caillich and then onto pleasant west ridge to summit. Mist cleared at top to reveal great views. Took in two Tumps on way back.Campbell Singer27/10/2017
Parked at loch, up hill at gully beside first house, super deer tracks to @ 500m, then nothing. Warm, sunny, cool wind, good views.iangalbraith09/05/2017
From Glasnock. Never underestimate a mountain called Garry.quadbarrel16/10/2016
Parked on road by Loch an Loin, followed track then new track line (left hand branch, right is u/s). Some then of rhe old path but a bit of a mess. Left at 250m to angle up to steeper ground using good deer tracks to fillow a great line up to the col area. Top easily gained then down west ridge and direct line to start point.nordicstar17/08/2016
From the west. Enjoyed the climbing up through the crags, then interesting limestone scenery and a nice stream on the way down.jenx17/08/2016
From A896 at top of Glasnock track.ChrisR07/08/2015
With D Roeder. Parked (14:50) at Loch an Loin. Crossed farm bridge and up over limestone crags to fantastic rocky ridge to summit. Didn't continue to Glas Bheinn but returned same route; car 18:35. Rain all round but we got sunburned! Great hill.dbb18/05/2015

With Mora, from Loch an LoinBLACKHILL03/04/2013
Parked at entrance to Glasnock. On track, through a gate, across a young bracken patch, to cross a stream in a miniature chasm. Made for rocky escarpment on horizon. Clamber through rocky outliers, steeply in places up to top at 11.20. Neat cairn on last heave of rock and grass. Cairnlet 100m further on seemed marginally higher. Shieldaig, Torridon village, Alligin, Damh, Eaglaise, Liathach, Eighe, S Ruadh and F Tholl. Huge range of peaks to SE. Loch Carron in 2 sections. An Sgurr, Cuillin, B Bhan and Trotternish.arranc03/06/2009
Ascended from Loch an Loin. Unfortunately not much of a summit view due to cloud.JohnW17/06/2004

With a friend. From the south end of Loch an Lòin. We walked along the track to the east side of the loch and then went up the hillside on the NE side of a burn with trees on either side. We then went up the broad W ridge to the summit of Sgurr a Gharaidh. Descended somewhat to the N of our ascent route. Later we joined other friends at Coire Fionnaraich bothy.pwbellarby03/11/2001
