A week of new experiences with Jon Glew. Earlier in the week on Maol Chean-dearg we learned what could be achieved in what was described as full on winter conditions. Today we learned what we could not achieve and more importantly recognising our limits 1.4km from summit of Fionn Bheinn. Visibilty down to 2m for lead person (5m behind) 30 - 40 mph wind, snow and spindrift straight in our faces and unable to determine what was up or down. Unable to navigate safely or reliably we jointly more or less at the same time decided to turn round and head back. Another great day on the hill but mixed feelings about ending a day without any ticks.SteveSmith15/02/2018

With D Roeder. Chaorainn & Fionn Bheinn on cold v windy day, snow showers. Fr Achnasheen (10:30) used new track to reach plateau near waterfall. Used v steep E face to avoid wind and snowfields, but v slippery. Sun briefly on top. Desc vis S ridge then on to Fionn Bheinn ascending from col to SE ridge, then to top in teeth of blizzard. Cloud cleared a bit on top. More blizzard on descent, quite difficult; dry for the final grassy walk down. Finish 15:30dbb16/05/2015

With Andy. Up and down from Achnasheen, 4.5 hours return. Used new dam access road in descent. Claggy day, no views.Crib Goch23/09/2014
Left Torridon in the sunshine arrived Achnasheen in the cloud. Even in the cloud it is still hot no jacket needed. Above the cloud the views were stunning with mountain tops poking thru the cloud. Easy hill day after 2 harder ones 5 munros in 3 days. Windy on top didnt hang around just a photo then descend. 5 hour round trip. Used the access road to the new hydro dam to ease descent thigh muscles still screaming at me for the punishment in Torridon the last 2 days.LizzieG17/09/2014
Start is not as my guide book mentions. Its left (west) at the phone box, over a small bridge and immediately right up a track. A bit boggy up there. A 4x4 track now up to half way point.Jhimmy24/06/2014

Walk with G/F from Achnasheen. Went too far up the burn into the bogs (tiring). Cloud clung to the top until we were 50 yards below the summit then cleared to a beautiful blue sky. Views are terrific,especially NW and north.thesweetcheat15/10/2013

Solo on a cold, wet windy day. Parked in Railway car park then across road and followed path before losing it in the bog. Terrible tramp over marshy ground, at summit in 2hr5, back at the car for 3hr20. 9.9km, 830m.bowzi02/09/2011
What a foul up, it's only a couple of miles in sunshine, but no map...ended up on Meall a Chorainn by mustake...added at least an hour but bonus was managed to refill with water from springsgeoffreybbb27/07/2011
Had the genius idea of adding this munro to Sgorr Ruadh and Beinn Liath Mhor as it looked as slam dunk walk up. Yeah, I never learned. Both Jake and I were exhausted as we approached its summit and what I thought would be a boring anodyne munro turned into a thoroughly rewarding viewpoint. I was wrong to write it off. Company: A tired Black Lab called Jake. Well I could have called him anything and he would not have cared.iandesbottes14/06/2011
From Achnasheen via Meall a' Chaorainndavidpettit8402/06/2011
