A long hike in from the road-end south of Poolewe, via Inveran, Kernsary and Coire nan Dearcag to the summit, returning the same way. 26km.Man of Kernow108/11/2019
Long walk in from Poolewe on a warm, cloudless day. Generally excellent tracks and stalkers path, only petering out near the top. Could have done with a mountain bike. N.B. I emailed Letterewe Estate as it's stalking season, but they said no stalking takes place on weekend days, but to avoid weekdays for the two Corbetts and one Graham behind Letterewe House.Owen B25/08/2019

Up the track and excellent stalker's path from Poolewe.davidpettit8429/05/2019
With M, from Poolewe. Failed to get to Fhionn Loch the previous day to climb the other two Corbetts, due to torrential rain, river impassable and bridge broken. Camped and climbed BAC on way back, on clear dry day.douglas_easton27/05/2019
During an iffy weather week in Gairloch. Forecast for cloudbase to rise to 900m by lunchtime, so set off with J, Shaky & Smithy from the car park at Poolewe following the usual route described in the SMC guide including the shortcut path cutting out Kernsary. The cloud stubbornly refused to lift beyond 500m, so wasted a fine summit on an inaccurate weather forecast. Walked back by the same route - very fine views once out of the mist & the walk back along Loch Maree & the River Ewe was a delight with rhododendrons in full bloom & all sorts of birds to spot.NotReallyABagger20/05/2019
Cycled from Poolewe past Kernsary to trackside cairn near top of track above Loch Maree, then path up to 570m.Topographer5729/04/2019

With Rod and Grant from Poolewe - misty day but got views to Fionn Loch, Loch Maree and coast from summit. Fisherfield was well shrouded. Cracking hill - well worth the walk on decent paths most of the way.SS20/06/2014

This may be one of my best Corbett's, lovely views all round, bike in did the round in 5hrs,Nozzer15/06/2014
Trig revisit: remains of a stonebuilt and a vanessa. Late pm/evening circuit from Poolewe, included the 2 Graham Tops, also 3 smaller P30m summits on the way down, which were good fun ... and boggy. At end of track I met a German couple who'd cycled in and were just starting up. Never saw them again - hope they made it out OK.RHW12/06/2014

Climbed on an incredibly sunny day in April. The walk in took an hour either way, and the ascent was enjoyable with Spidean nan Clach above. This is a hill with such character, and incredible views.Kevin2903517/04/2008
Quite a walk from Poolewe, via Kernsary and Altt na Creige. Struck off up the hill, over Spidean nan Clach, then Airigh Charr. Broken off vanessa type trig and cairn at top. Magnificent views of remote hills in the hinterland.Aye Jimmy10/06/2006

Two day expedition from Poolewe to Incheril. With Rhona Fraser and George Gilpin. We left Poolewe at 17:00 on the path starting at Srondubh. This runs along the north side of Loch Kernsary to Kernsary, an occupied house. We took the track going east and south east from Kernsary, through forest. Shortly after leaving the forest we bore right, making our way across the open hillside to the base of the north west ridge of Spidean nan Clach. The weather was quite cloudy, but there was no rain. We climbed the ridge to the summit of Spidean nan Clach passing some goats. We continued to the summit of Beinn Airigh Charr. There is a cairn a few metres from the trig point and marginally higher. From the summit of Beinn Airigh Charr we descended somewhat east of south, over the top of Meall aí Choire Ghlas and to the east of the small top ~510m. We bivvied near the path coming south from Srathan Buidhe. There had been mist on the summits, so we didnít get a view from the summit.pwbellarby06/08/1994
