Parked just along from the Weavers, then headed due west up the hill, following the ridge all the way to the top. Fine views across to the Applecross peninsular. Then on to An Sgurr.Simon Winton19/03/2020
From road end for Strome Carranach up to Black Mares Rock then An Sgurr, finally this one. Just over 3 hours. Some deer fences to cross.NormanW13/06/2019
No suitable parking near the weaving centre, so up from large-ish passing place at NG 87119 36207, where an ATV track leads up R (NNE) in zig zags to an electric fence - L (SW) around the fence and up S bank of burn to ridge crest, then SW to top. No sign of any path near top, so presumably not a well visited hill.Isbjorn17/02/2019
Round of An Sgurr and Bad a'Chreamha from the east. Descended east ridge.Topographer5709/06/2018
Pretty much as Nordicstar. A nice circuit.PGCE10/05/2018
Last hill of a short round of 4. From An Sgurr via Cnoc Mheadhonach. Dropped down to the road for some benchmarking on way back to the car parked just N of craft centre.jonglew13/02/2018
4 of 4: From Cnoc Mheadhonach.ChrisR09/03/2017
Pretty much used same route as Clive. Absolutely fantastic weather. Much nicer walk than I imagined. Good views to Applecross hills.jenx16/08/2016
From pt 22 on tge road, below Strome Carronach. The track followed NW into woods. At its end a path leads to a hill gate. Follow track around under crags and up north to deer gate. Direct line to top. Returned to same point and headed direct to col and to climb Bad a' Chreamha. Lovely viewpoints both, trig on the final top sublime in the warm sunshine. Down the East ridge easily and to Shielings then track and road to start point.nordicstar16/08/2016
Lovely round of An Sgurr & Bad a'Chreamha from the east. Parked at end of forest road at 879373, then followed it to end at 865378, where a new path leads W to forest edge and a gate. Followed above cliff line to 861384 where the deer fence has an opening cut in it. Straighforward to An Sgurr summit with wonderful views of Beinn Bhan. Headed to Bad a'Chreamha via very rotten stile over deer fence at 859378, then east of point 246 to reach ridge of Bad a'Chreamha 400m east of summit trig. Descended east ridge to 871370, then to shielings, weavers and along road to start point.Clive G08/05/2016

round of an sgurr and bad a chreamha from fc tracks at strome carronach.robertphillips16/11/2014
I invented my own way up from North Strome and did not wish to repeat it on the way down, so headed off to bag An Sgurr instead. Lots of steep crags to play on. And terrific views.Martin R24/09/2014

With Mora, from Achintraid.BLACKHILL17/05/2013
Revisit. From SE, across pasture then steep slope, would be bracken hell in a few weeks time.RHW01/05/2011
Parked at weavers and walked up through Stronemeachan shielings. NW up to ridge and then along to trig. Dropped GPS on last leg but found it again fairly quickly. On to An Sgurr to north. Going generally hard.chriswatson19/03/2011
Parked at the car park at Leacanashie and made a full on assault to the ridge, from there it was an easy stroll to the top. Descended eastwards on a much shallower slope but had high bracken for my troubles.garyhoney12/07/2009
Drizzle and rain, windy on top, high cloud so good views.iangalbraith13/09/2006
From Lochcarron. On bridal path to old shielings. Steep climb on grass runs to ridge and a long trudge on pathless moor grass to top of visible horizon. 3/4 miles further to Vanessa 9778 at 16.05. Extensive dull views.arranc08/08/2005
