The day started foggy. We set off hoping to get above the cloud and bag the peaks of An Teallach. Not long after leaving the car, the rain hit. Constant rain and wind all the way. On the climb up, there was a break in the weather and the midge descended but not for long. The weather hit again. At some point I picked up an injury and was in a lot of pain. Half way up, the full force of the weather beat us off the mountain and we returned defeated. Next time.NorthernWayfarer03/08/2018

From Shenevall hut. Fierce winds and blizzards on higher parts.dickiewren04/05/2013
With Rhona Fraser and Robin Howie. From road crossing of burn from Loch Toll an Lochan. Up path on SW side of burn. Ascended SE ridge of Sàil Liath to the summit. Continued to Stob Cadha Gobhlach and descended to col to north. Should have climbed straight up but were tempted by paths on the left side of Corrag Bhuidhe. Went up a branch path and attempted to climb directly upwards but it was rather difficult so we retreated. Tried further round and climbed to the summits of three pinnacles, the last one being Corrag Bhuidhe. Climbed Lord Berkley’s Seat and Sgùrr Fiona. Finally to Sgùrr Creag an Eich. This was my last Munro top of a second round of Munro Tops that had been done pure ie not counting those that had been ascended more than once prior to my completion of my first round. Celebratory dinner at the Dundonell Hotel.pwbellarby20/06/2012
