Graham

Quick Facts
This is the height of the mountain above sea level. However, on the climb, it is the ascent that matters, i.e. the sum of all the uphill parts of the route.
Altitude
643 m (2109 ft)

This is the standard notation used on Ordnance Survey Landranger maps.

Each reference consists of two letters identifying a 100,000 metre square block then three digits defining the Easting and finally the three digits defining the Northing with reference to the South West corner of the block.

NN166712 is the grid reference for the summit of Ben Nevis. Where you are given the map number ( For Ben Nevis = 41) it is acceptable to omit the two initial letters e.g. 166712. (Instructions on how to read the references are given on the OS maps).

 Description
Creag Tharsuinn is a long narrow ridge in the Cowal Peninsula which runs SW to NE.

It lies across the Garrachra Glen from the Graham Beinn Mhor.

The end of the public road through Glen Massan to the S provides nearest access from where tracks lead through to Garrachra Glen.

 
General Considerations
 Temperature decreases by 1degree C for every 100m of ascent.
 Wind usually increases with altitude.
 Visibility can change markedly with cloud level.
 River/Stream levels can increase markedly in one day.

Like many of the Cowal hills, access is greatly restricted by forestry. I managed a 12 mile circuit from Glen Branter car park by following the Cowal Way south to GR 075915 from where you can cut up tussocky ground to Bealach nan Sac. It is then an easy walk NE to the summit which is marked by a single stone ( in misty weather a good indication you are at the summit is a lone metal post about 15m before the top) . From here I recommend you follow the ridge NE for approx 3K to spot height 530m from where you can cut down WNW through a break in the forestry to the outward path. 5hrs total.
