Almost a perfect day in excellent weather Up Garbh Beinn via the normal route over Sron a Garbh Mhoir, a really fine trip with interesting sections but no real difficulties. The SW and S over Meall a Chuilinn and its S top. I had no advance info about this but it was fine, just pleasant walking. Having studied it from road plan was to drop down east into Coire an Iubhair but it was extremely steep and I bottled it. It would have been fine as an ascent route. So headed west on ridge to a less steep line down S to road. This is what took the edge off the day, the decent was fine but the hack through the felled forest to the road was not. The a short walk up the road to the cattle grid where I had left my bike and free wheeled all the way back to my tent/car. A very good day despite the felled forest.dickscroop02/08/2021

With my grandson, Matthew, and a party from Alltshellach, the HF Guesthouse. This was the harder walk to Garbh Bheinn (Ardgour). The coach took us to Glen Tarbert. We walked up a forestry track. We then walked eastwards, eventually going up the west ridge of Meall a' Chuilinn North Top (773m) to reach the summit. We continued to the West Top of Garbh Bheinn (lunch) and the main summit of Garbh Bheinn. We descended over Sron a' Ghairbh Choire Mhoir and down the SE ridge to reach the road. Some played cricket using a walking pole as a bat as we waited for the coach. The weather was good and warming up.pwbellarby21/07/2008

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
