The gentlest track in the highlands - though a long way in. T - slept a bit - and got used to falling off her bikeScmccabe 08/07/2021
Biked up Glen Quoich. Track re-routed from NO 1018 9208 (very steeply uphill) to NO 0873 9250 (very steeply down) - rough stony track for just over a mile. Too rough for me to bike, massive effort to push. Good surface next mile. Car park meter currently covered - free parking.carole engel07/07/2020
Ascended to North Top by very easy, evenly graded track/rod over the An Diollaird western ridge, on to South Top then South Top Old GR cairn. Descended directly to Alltan an Beinne over rocky the heather strewn rocks. As silly an idea as anybody could get when you could return to the ascent track and descend in half the time without an inch (2cm) of climbing.Eddie23/10/2019

In April 1984 this was the Top, so bagged it before it was deleted later that year. The new GR placed the Top about 800m further north on the ridge. Walked over the current Top as I headed up the S. ridge from Quoich Water to the summit of Beinn a’Bhuird. See log for Beinn a’Bhuird. (Solo)gerrybowes17/04/1984

With Jonathan Bellarby. From Allanaquoich. We walked on the east side of Quoich Water for 1½ miles, over a precarious bridge and then on the west side. We reached the track end at NO083964 and went up beside a burn to the South Top of Beinn a’ Bhuird, A’ Chioch, the North Top of Beinn a’ Bhuird, and Cnap a’ Chléirich. Went on to the SW Top of Ben Avon and Leabaidh an Daimh Bhuidhe. Went back to take in Stob an t’ Sluichd and the W and E tops of Beinn Bhreac. Weather fine. Good views.pwbellarby29/07/1981
