From Beinn Bhan, going round the trees, then on to the more interesting Binnean nan Gobhar.Alan Moore23/04/2019
This is a hill that I had avoided for some time because of its boggy reputation. In the event it was a mainly grassy plod after leaving the Ben Lomond path when it left the forest. Clear but hazy conditions.JohnW12/04/2019
With Binnean nan Gobhar from Cashel Farm, new deer fences to cross, with Ellie dog.BLACKHILL08/04/2019
After Ben Lomond, over Moin Eich, Elrig. Heather (actually tussock grass) nothing like as bad as others' reports - only mildly irksome on my personal toughness scale of irksome, purgatorial and excrutiating. Better done on a good viz day when can look well ahead and plot a long range route linking up burnt areas, re-entrants etc.Isbjorn23/03/2019
5of5: From Binnean nan Gobhar.ChrisR28/02/2019
Second visit, from Cashel via Binnein nan Gobhar. Every bit as tough as I rememberedColin Crawford14/12/2018
Caught the ferry from Tarbet to Rowardennan then Ptarmigan - Ben Lomond - Beinn Uird. Left the Ben Lomond path near the Halfway Well and fought my way across the Moin Eich. It wasn't the bog that was the problem - it was the heather! Going very tough over Elrig, then improved slightly. Nothing on the top. Why do we do this?! On descent found it easier to descend directly W to the track, then follow it N to the sheepfold from where I could rejoin the tourist path.Mark Jackson21/08/2017
Started on Ben Lomond track in pouring rain over a bog. Not a good way to go.grumpy29/07/2017
Ascended from forestry centre at Cashel Farm, along green waymarks to 414948. Then used the faint track marked on the Harvey's map to the south end of the ruined fence at 426954 - boggy, but much better than the surrounding land. Over Stob a Choin Dubh to Binnein nan Gobhar. Descended almost to forestry en route to Beinn Uird to avoid the worst of the peat hags. Descended WNW to pick up tourist Ben Lomond path.Clive G27/03/2016
Round lump...good views north, glad of the frozen turf rather than bog trot from Binnean nam GobharN.Morters27/02/2016
Park before Rowardennan in forest gateway, 362979. Great track to forest fence, plod up thereafter. Snow on ground, sunny and cold. Good views.iangalbraith14/02/2016
Up the woodland track from Cashell, then across seemingly miles of tussocks and bog. Beiinn Breac trig, Binnean nan Gobhar, Ben Uird. Misty and damp all day. Did not find a single useful track. I imagine the views must be good.jenx16/12/2015
With Jenx from Cashell farm. Used track to 320m then up warercourses to Beinn Breac trig. Gobhar summit cairn then a hard slog over very wet, tussocky/heather ground to Ben Uird and back to same track in mist and rain to start point. Not a route for the connoisseur.nordicstar16/12/2015
MC JC O. Cut across to peak from the Ben Lomond path.Martin6627/09/2015
From the Ben Lomond path over rough ground. Got caught by 3 wet potholes! Almost stood on an adder.hillsman30/07/2015
With Mrs G. From car park N of Rowardennan Hotel on clear Ben Lomond path to deer fence, then over rough ground to sheepfold. Good farm track for 800m then struck out directly for summit.jonglew23/05/2015
beinn bhreac, binnean nan gobhar, beinn uird, from cashel farm.robertphillips28/12/2014
On the way back from Ben Lomond and Chris Watson's Munro Completion. Used track N & W around forest to return to Ben Lomond path.Minto19/10/2014
With Bhreac from Blairvockie. Hard pathless slog over rough boggy ground with plenty of tussocks. One for the masochists! Perhaps Cashel preferable with the track up through the trees.AndrewFinnimore02/10/2014

Alone, from Rowardennan.Grinner03/02/2013
Finally got rid of flies at the summit after I had been plagued by them all the way from Gualann. On to Ben Lomond....campagvelocet25/06/2012
Top with Jim B.Dugswell204/06/2012
Misty ascent with Holly, Jenny and Abby. Walked part way up tourist path to Ben Lomond then cut across fences and tussocky moor to flat top.alexmaclennan20/02/2012
From Cashel car park via Binnein nan Gobhar. Snow above 300 metres, snow and freezing conditions kept me out of most of the bogs. Return via west face and (in twilight) public road.Topographer5716/12/2011
Walked from Blairuskinmore to Comer, then up to Ben Lomond, down tourist path and up Beinn Uird, down to Moin Rich and back through forestGallovidian26/09/2010

Solo Uisdean2512/09/2009
over heath and marsh from Binnean nan Gobhar. New fence work being installed on the 2 hills. Look for wooden bridge crossing one of the ditches in col.Buteobuteo12/07/2008
Up Ben Lomond track to col with Fiona. Thick mist.agentmancuso04/02/2007
Parked on road side near Rowardennan. Through farm to track above forest. At 700' made bee line up on gentle slope with many false horizons. Over wire fence, rough sheep pasture moor not very wet. Grass patches all the way to top at 11.15. Watershed hill. Lomond dominates the view.arranc14/05/2005
