Squeezed between the higher peaks of Sgurr Choinnich and Bidein a' Choire Sheasgaich, Beinn Tharsuinn's summit stands above three grass-covered shoulders overlooking the glens of Attadale at the western end of Loch Monar.

Possibly the most straightforward approach to Beinn Tharsuinn is a cycle up the forestry and estate track that begins from the level crossing at Craig. This reaches the waters by Pollan Buidhe, from where a 3km hike up a decent path, then a further 2km up a grass-covered shoulder bags the summit.

Beinn Tharsuinn can also be reached by a cycle through Attadale Estate. Although this route is longer, a bike will get closer, with the most likely drop-off point being around 3.5km south-west of Beinn Tharsuinn's summit.
