Climbed from Elleric, up the ugly landrover track beside Glen Ure. The east ridge of Sgulaird, many ups and downs. 3.5 hours from car park. Stunning views. Rreturned to track for cross country to Beinn Fhionnlaidh.Rob Rees23/06/2019
From Druimavuic - ascent and descent via ENE Ridge. Lots snow above 500m. Little shelter from strong E wind - progress difficult in places. Descent and re-ascent over subsidiary summits easy enough in snow, but couldn’t descend to Taraphocain as holding too much snow, so reversed route outwychwood10/03/2018

With Tash😀, stupidly hot at start at 9am.pigerg24/07/2017
Up the visible-for-miles track from the layby just north of Druimavuic: it's on the 1:25000 but not yet the 1:50000. At the 550m col, we left the track and headed north up the steep slope to the 863m top. Returning, took the path west of 863m towards 488m; hard to say which route is preferable.Pete R22/07/2017

A very warm. clear day. Quite a long way along the ridge with plenty of ups and downs. Cutting directly back to the glen proved to be quite a slog. Alex saw what may have been a wildcat as we began the descent.darradog29/05/2013
second ascent of beinn sgulaird, with a first ascent of the 2 south tops, 2 in party, clear for most of the day, then a prolonged snow shower as we start our descent, climbed from druimavuic, pt 488 and up the ridge to pt 863, cut steps in the descent, pt 848, again cut steps down from this top and the final summit ridge in crampons, only taking them off after descending a few hundred metres from the summit.rum doodle 07/02/2013
Climbed this on a thoroughly miserable day, cloud from ground level to the tops. I'm sure it's lovely, but in that weather it was just grim :-)Cap_Thunderbolt08/09/2012
