Another late one, left summit at 10:30pm. Pretty good path down steep ridge to the River Lair and enough light to walk through the trees at midnight.alda21/06/2019

With DW and SL. Intending to do the Munro pair, but strong winds (some of the strongest we'd walked in, despite not being forecast) prevented us doing Sgorr Ruadh. Descended back to Achnashellach through Coire Lair.AGWilliamson29/12/2016

a first walk up Munros with Phil Dant after meeting him and wife Nicola on CRMC meet at Lochcarron. He's about 90 Munro's ahead of me but his first child is due in three months and his Munro bagging is likely to slow down!! very high winds going north along the ridge made us abandon any plans to include Sgorr Ruadh.vegibagger08/04/1996

Alone. From Achnashellach Station up the path NW from the station. Took the RH of 3 branches as shown on map. Shortly afterwards a cairn on the left marks the start of a vague track (not shown on map) which ascends the E side of Beinn Liath Mhór. To Far East Top, East Top and main top. Descended WSW where there is a way down crags. I ascended a moderately angled snow field – quite hard – to gain the ridge to Sgorr Ruadh. From summit descended SE. I tried to short-cut the path but had to climb down into the gorge of River Lair and then climb out again. It is better to join the path high up and keep to it. Snow above 500m, patchy at first. There was a lot of snow on Sgorr Ruadh – firm but soft on top. Clear, but overcast all day.pwbellarby05/04/1984
