Easy walk from Beinn Tarsuinn. Descent has had some good work done to the path, but considerable sections are still very rough, quite hard work after a long day. Descended to the confluence of Garbh Allt amd Glenrosa Water, forded the stream (low after a long dry spell) to the north side of Glenrosa, then an easy walk back along a good path to Brodick Castle.Owen B14/05/2017
Last peak in the mist. Great day out even though no views from summits. Magical Glen with these corbetts. Company: Martin Stewart.iandesbottes03/12/2016

On the way down from Beinn Tarsuinn.Topographer5731/05/2016
1st hill of 10 on an awesome day of epic scrambling grandeur. Starting in Brodick i took the cart road into Glen Rosa and then took the path up the Garb Allt burn, this eventually crosses the rocky gorge and heads up onto the ridge, with increasingly scrambly sections until i reached the summit. The atmosphere was eerie due to mist obscuring and clearing the view with strong sunlight evident in the valley. The Cairn is not the summit but a boulder.Dazingdale13/05/2016
