Climbed solo. From A832 to north. Via Loch a Bhraoin, Allt Breabaig, 550m bealach, SE ridge of Sgurr Breac, Sgurr Breac, Toman Coinnich, A' Chailleach, Sron na Goibhre, Toll an Lochain, Allt an Goibhre, Leitir Fhearna, return to road via footbridge at end of Loch a Bhraoin. Misty over 700m and very windy, drizzle. Straightforward ridge walk. Nice easy path to 550m bealach. Rough ground on Leitir Fhearna with a deer fence (unmarked on map) to negotiate ... there are stiles in the SW and NE though if you can find them! Odd trench on A' Chaillleach summit.jamessteel10022/07/2018

Solo. with Sgurr Breac. McNeish route. His return route awful. Strongly recommend coming back same ridge as ascent (Druim Reidh) despite having to go back up a bit early on.highlandchief01/09/2017
