From the B829 besides Loch Dhu, taking the track to Loch Dhu House and onwards to Stronmacnair and up Gleann Dubh to a gate at the end of the forest a km SE of Comer. The bracken was dead so a relatively simple climb up to Beinn Dubh and Sgiath Ghorm. Reversed the route back to the car, where a flat tyre put paid to any further bagging additions.summitter21/04/2022
From the forest road that starts just east of the cattle grid on the Inversnaid road. A raised track zigzags through a felled area, petering out before a fence and the hill beyond. Tussocky going to the summit of Beinn Dubh and, via the shore of Beinn Dubh Lochan to Sgiath Ghorm. A magnificent panorama of mountains; from this angle, Ben Lomond in profile looks like a Homburg hat. A traversing descent took me back to the outward route.Nick Down128/11/2020

From Comer track at end of trees.chalky195309/11/2017
Up from Comer track once trees had ended. Long grass and bracken in full growth, better once on high. Ambushed by thunderstorm walking back down the trackColin Crawford21/06/2017
From beyond N end of Loch Chon. Started on lower forest road, and up the path marked on map - but not really there on the ground. The higher forest track from nearer summit of pass would be easier. Followed this road S to it's end, then up through trees the open hill. Onwards to Beinn Dubh.Minto25/07/2014
