Solo again!Dangerous Dave01/10/2019
Bagged with Ben More Assynt (998m) from the Inchnadamph car park in the north west highlands. These are two hills that I had planned on getting multiple times, when I lived in Inverness, but there was always an excuse not to, so Iím very chuffed to have finally bagged them. In the wind shelter on Conival I met a very friendly 73 year old called Keith and we paired up for the rest of the day. 09:40hrs in total sunshine and blue skies till 5pm then overcast but dry.chillyman815/07/2019

MMC Durness WE. With Iain Wilson left Ullapool YH 0800 for Ichnadamph. followed WH route. Easy walk along the glen. Stiff pull to bealach. Sensational alpine round of both munros on easy snow. Met about 18 other walkers during the day. Onto Durness YH end of day. 8 hoursalexmaclennan10/05/2019
mist and windy with mike shaw and peter walker, went onto Ben More Assyntlithosyork29/12/2018
Reached from the car park at Inchnadamph on a eleven mile walk to claim the county top of Sutherland Ben More Assynt. Walk took around seven hours in winter conditions (beware of the pink rock as this can be very slippery) and the path can be difficult to pick out at times but a excellent ridge walk none the less.WAYNE ROWLETT24/12/2018
concrete base with rivet and rough triangle within wind shelter on blocky ridge- a continuation from Ben More Assynt in superb clear weather- fantastic ridge traverse- on to Na Tuadhan.Denise 14/10/2018
From Inchnadamph (Loch Assynt) along Traligill to Conival and then along the ridge to Ben More Assynt. Cloudy conditions, improving, but strong cross wind on ridge across to Ben More Assynt.knarf29/08/2018
Weather started cloudy but fine. We hoped that the cloud would lift before we reached the main climb to the summit. It didn't. It was very windy after the small scramble. At a guess, 30-40mph constant wind with gusts over 40mph. Enough wind to make you fall over when it briefly stopped. Decided not to proceed to Ben More Assynt in such wind. A good call because no sooner had we left the summit than the rain hit really hard. All our 'waterproof' gear failed and we returned to the car soaked to the skin through all of our layers. But great fun. My 2nd Munro bagged.NorthernWayfarer04/08/2018

Climbed with Rob, together with Ben More Assynt. Very cold and windy with quite a lot of snow. Ice axe and crampons left in the car because there wasn't much snow yesterday.banksey23/04/2018

Climbed with Maggie in very poor weather. Sam opted to drive home instead. No view. Fairly easy walking.dave neilson29/07/2016
From Inchnadamph Lodge, the path is clear (even after it ends on the map) all the way over Conival and on to Ben More. Given that 5 hours of the 7 were in the fog, that's just as well. The walk along the river at the start and end was lovely. The climbing and descending in the fog was slippy and quite tough! However county top 17 complete.callumorr25/07/2016
Third visit, continuing over Breabag and tops. The drop to the southern col is exceedingly steep, not recommendedColin Crawford14/06/2016
Out and back ascent from Inchnadamph with K. Snow prevented continuing to Ben Moore Assyntsebastiencale06/05/2016
A fantastic few days with the Steven Faloon walking group. Snow packed weather in May. Snow fields and deep snow. But wonderful views and the rain stayed off. Ullapool during the music festival. Fantastic.Eileen O'Neil01/05/2016
A pleasant walk from inchdamph along river...then came the uphill bit...no views.steven ruffles31/08/2015
2nd attempt. Day started sunny, then cloud came down. After Ben More Assynt, I used this as a return route, only for the heaven to open up for a wet and boggy return back to InchD.Jhimmy26/08/2015

Got the bike bus from Inverness to Inchnadamph. After checking in headed up the track on what promised to be a very hot day. Made good time and met a couple on the way down at the Bealach. Did a little scramble at the head wall and picked up the path over the boulders plateau. Met more people all on the way down. The clouds were a. It threatening but came to,nothing. Reached the false summit and thought the heavens we're going to open. Reached the summit at 15.30. Good going for me having started at 11.45. Met a Dutch couple there just leaving. Fabulous all round views and all the way to,the end of Scotlandmunromurph03/07/2015

Inchnadamph - Conival - Ben More Assynt and back, with Andrew. Conditions much better than last September when I abandoned at the top of Conival. Possibly the hottest day of the year so far.killiedaft25/07/2014

An attempt to climb Ben More Assynt cut short by thick cloud and high winds. Nearly abandoned even this on a couple of occasions, but by the time I found reached the top going home was the only sensible option.killiedaft18/09/2013

Inchadamph - Conival - Ben More Assynt - S Top - Corbett Top - Breabag - valley of Allt nan Uamh to car park where met family waiting. Breabag is not up to much to be quite frank! Still good, but not same quality as other hills in this area. Conival and Ben More Assynt are epic. The ridge to Munro Top is quite narrow and exposed. With GW & RW to Ben More & then alone from there.AGWilliamson20/09/2012
A long walk in but a good ridge once there..all sorts of weather this day, hail,rain wind etc. Walked with Aly & MuttsMc Tango21/08/2012
Conival and Ben More Assynt from Inchnadamph. Clouds clear just as we reach the valley on our return.rhalstead04/07/2012
Estimated date. Done solo in late Spring early summer in appalling conditions. Done twice because I retraced my outward journey to Ben Mor Asynt. Rain at sea level but blizzards on top. Little in way of visible path on first fifteen minutes of descent.Aimless Rambler02/06/2012
