Great hill with phenomenal views from the Cuillins to the Paps of Jura. Went up South East Ridge and down Coire an Iubhair. Time for walk 4 hours 15 minutes.isabelle05/07/2018
Slow drag up and then incredible summit with views including the cuillin ridge on Skye.simonjallen02/04/2017
Continuation of walk from Sron a'Gharbh Choire Bhig. Headed north-west on path down to bealach, then up west flank of the hill and east to the summit. Then returned to bealach, steeply north-east down corrie and then boggy eroded path down Coire an Iubhair back to A 861. With DB and RP to the summit, then also with BC on return.marktrengove01/10/2016
Did after Sgorr Mhic Eacharna & Beinn Bheag. Descended from Beinn Bheag to 89951/63189 & up gully from Lochan Coire an Lubhair to 90197/62862. Steep but ok apart from a large boulder about half way up which didn't look too steady. Then up via 90226/62817 & 90414/62477 with some short bits of minor scrambling. A hard but great day.duchally31/05/2016

Self, via Coire Iubhair. Snow from Bealach Feith.Highland Days17/03/2015
Did the wonderful round of Coire an Iubhair, over the Grahams to the E first. Followed the path up the glen for a short way & then forced a way up on to Druim an Iubhair. This was tedious but worth it once we were up. Followed the broad ridge along to Sgorr Mhic Eacharna & then round the increasingly rough ground to Beinn Bheag. From here, continued along to the minor tops at 692m & 682m & then dropped straight down to the bealach. Ascended a wet gully which looked easier from the bottom than it actually was: steep, slippery & loose at its narrowest point but then easier after that. Wound our way round the rough stuff to the summit & a terrific view before following the long SE ridge down to the starting point. This round didn't do my knees much good but it was worth it!NotReallyABagger10/09/2014
On the way to Lochaline dive trip.gilbatratchet04/05/2014
From SSW via the GT, CT and CT. Ptarmigan near summit. Mist made for interesting descent of N ridge: soon lost sketchy path, kept a bit E of crest, on steep grass, worked OK, traversed W to a col then up the P23 subCT bagged in passing. Then super-steep deer-trod descent to rejoin path, but kept L, following NE bank of impressive gorge, on rather alarmingly exposed deer trod! And so to Druim Min and back to road.RHW14/10/2013

With a friend. Parked in Glen Tarbert about NM880605. After ascending the two tops of Meall a' Chuilinn we continued to the west top of Garbh Bheinn. The route is quite steep and fun towards the top. Snow was lying quite thick and crisp above 600m. We reached the main summit of Garbh Bheinn and descended SE following the tracks of others over the 823m top. After a while we headed SW to reach the road not far from our starting point. A superb day's walking.pwbellarby22/02/2006

Fantastic hill. FIrst climbed when climbing the route, Butterknife.gman09/09/1999
Climbed The Great Ridge with Simon Fairmanner with a detour half way to climb the shorter but harder Butterkife (severe)before rejoining the ridge to the summit. I then went off alone for a multi Marilyn bagging extension rejoining Simon at the lochside tent at 11pm - having made full use of the long evenings having been out for 16 hours since 7am (packing in as much as possible in case the weather changed for the worse) .Chris Pearson15/06/1998

Horseshoe of Garbh Bheinn, Beinn Bheag and Sgorr Mhic Eacharna with AJ. Many more repeats when back climbing The Great Ridge.Eddie07/09/1996
After climbing Excalibur with big Tutt. On the way down we trundled a boulder about the size of a fridge. After gaining plenty of momentum, this smashed into a larger boulder, this time about the size of a transit van. This rocked forward and for a fraction of a second we both thought it would start to roll, but with a strange smell of cordite it slumped back to it original position. If it had rolled down, it would have gone all the way to the road with possibly serious implications. I've never trundled since then.mindlessflogger31/03/1996
HF holiday in Glecoe in a very wet summer. This hill was climbed from the south. Misty on summit so no view. Needs to be revisited.ChinnockC10/08/1995
with Gavin. Cracker of a day, with views and a nice dip in river at the end, though midges hellish. We camped later that evening above Loch Na Uamh? and did Ben Hiant next day. Garch Bheinn well named. Went up a SW ridgeniallp26/07/1995
