Solo. From Mamore Lodge. To Sgurr Eilde Mòr, Binnein Beag and Binnein Mòr. From Sgòr Eilde Beag I walked to the col with Na Gruagaichean up to the summit of Na Gruagaichean and the North West Top. Went down to the col at 783m and descended on a stalkers' path. This was not a good path and I probably deviated from it. I passed some sheep pens to reach the track used on the outward route and so returned to Mamore Lodge. The weather was dry and clear with some cloud. There was a light breeze so it was good walking weather - not too hot.pwbellarby04/08/2003

something like a 2.30am start on SW side of Sgurr Eilde Mor with Andy Elphinstone as part of a support group for John Fleetwood's attempt at a 24 hour Ramsays round. was so relatively slow that I was left behind very quickly. It was still going to be a big Munro day for me. SEM was second time after going up it on first week on honeymoon with Bridget. On to valley and round to Binnein Beag, up north ridge to Binnein Mor, Na Gruagaichean, NW top, Sob Coire a'Chairn, out and back to An Gearanach, Am Bodach and back SE to Kinlochleven. A seven Munro, eight Murdo day, with regrets that I didn't traverse out to Sgor Eilde Beag, which is now my only remaining unclimbed Mamores Murdo. Munro nos. 158-163vegibagger16/07/2000
