Round of Farrmheall and Ghlas-bheinn fron Carbreak. Warm and sunny, nice breeze but very hazy.Topographer5702/06/2018
Up/down from 311571. easy 2 hours. vg views.davidsbatty12/05/2018
The voie normale from the bridge (good car park) but, oh my goodness, what a lovely walk. Perfect snow conditions, not too much, not too little, all the bogs frozen and the summit rocks glued nicely together. A stiff breeze and spindrift to make you think it's a much bigger mountain, and superb views of my favourite mountain.Gill27/12/2017
Parked just over the bridge off the A 838, as others. Followed the boggy track north, leaving it east to gain drier ground on the south ridge. Continued north to the summit. Returned much the same way, but kept to the ridge till it reached the road 200m east of the car park. Solo.marktrengove26/10/2017
atv track starts up from bridge at 309570, plenty parking available there, easy rocky ridge further up superb views.hils07/05/2017

As chrisbien - the cones are still in situ.Chris Peart19/11/2013
Solo. From parking area a little NE of Gulalin House. Climbed directly up hillside to summit. Came across a broad stony track coming up from left. Doesn't seem used although marked by small cairns and traffic cones! Got to summit cairn. However cairn does not look like highest point. Other contenders in a line, which I walked along, with a few much smaller cairns.pwbellarby01/08/2013

day is approc, but first week of July in 2009hornet05/07/2009
fantastic views from Orkney out to the western isles !!hjaltland15/06/2009
Parked by a bridge on A 838. Gentle gradient over grass moor with peat, the stone runs and to top at 10.20. Intermittent vehicle track for some of the way. A 6' high substantial cairn as you would expect with all those stones lying about. Mrs B's 1,000th Marilyn in 1995. Watershed hill.arranc02/08/2008
On the final day of a week in Kylesku. With Shaky on a very wet & windy day. So much for flaming June. Up the S slopes of Farmheall from the bridge underneath the wind until near the top when the full force of the weather hit us. Then the 3km across to Ghlas-bheinn trying to stay upright. A rare occasion when a GPS was used to locate the summit. On a better day, we would have reversed the whole route, but given the weather we descended S to the road at Carbreck & then had an unpleasant 2.5km uphill slog along the road to the start. A daft day out!NotReallyABagger02/06/2006
Round of Beinn an Amair, when it was a twin, Ghlas-bheinn and Farrmheall from the main road.Eddie22/05/2004
