Fine Munro round with Peter on a perfect still September day.nix_snilloc07/09/2019
From lay-by on A86 west of Loch Laggan (NN 43294 83043). South across River Spean bridge then followed excellent Land-Rover track as far as Lochan na h-Earba then good path up to Bealach Leamhain. Short but easy rocky scramble up onto the summit plateau. Small cairn at Beinn a' Chlachair East Top then difficult navigation to the Munro summit through hill fog and across a mass of shattered rock and boulders.david23020120/08/2019
Circuit of Beinn a'Chlachair, its East Top, Geal Charn, Sron Garbh and Creag Pitridh from Moy Bridge . Outstanding views in all directions. Got so absorbed in watching two roe deer at quite close quarters that I fell into a hole between tussocks on the descent from Pitridh. Then, while resting on the sandy beach of Lochan na h-Earba, the wind switched direction and sand-blasted me with stinging quartzite granules...Nick Down123/06/2019
From layby at Luiblea, biked in to stalkers track, track to high point, up rhs of cliffs, faint path, over to summit.iangalbraith23/06/2019
With Linda Sim & Lorraine Cooper Day started out promising but a couple heavy showers, low cloud on the summit & no sign of it lifting the decision was made to only do the one munro. Was taking ages to navigate our way from the summit, checking the compass bearing every 20 paces. Not much wildlife, heard a ptarmigan that eventually showed itself flying away from us.LizzieG09/06/2019
From Moy - long walk in and ascended/descended via the west ridge - wet and windy. Snow on approach to summit only. Wind switched to northerly on descent with snow ++wychwood26/01/2019

Direct to summit from north. Down the east side of the coire to the path on the Allt Coire Pitridh. Lost Mrs Mindlessflogger on the descent after stopping to take a photo but she was sitting at the bottom waiting for me. Just managed to complete the walk before the rain came.mindlessflogger01/06/2017
