Parked at Minard and took the farm track to the man made loch below Beinn Ghlas, crossed the burn and up rough ground to the summit. Good viewpoint on a cold crisp day

Ascended from the track to the west and encountered four grouse near to the summit. A.Cameron 1985 has been scratched into the cap. It wasn't me, honest! Decent views of the environs of Loch Fyne.

Blue skies when seen from afar; cloud and drizzle on arrival 45 minutes later. Would have stunning views up and down Loch Fyne in good conditions.

vgc, metal cap, wide raised letters, dullish summit on a grey day after a tough tussocky tramp from WSW, linked with S8759 but maybe easier to do on its own from SE as per earlier visit.
