Debs & Talisker. 5 Sgurr a' Gharg Gharaidh ridge tops in SE direction. Up from the lochan and headed down off the last one, picking up an old path, well made in places.Mountain Goat10/05/2019
A morning traverse of the 5 tops of Sgurr a'gharg Gharaith from Shiel Bridge. An easy walk in on the good path, a very pleasant traverse in better weather than we expected then dropped off East to valley and mainly pathless until reached inward main path. A very odd section of badly churned up ATV track starting and finishing in the middle of nowhere - how did it get in without leaving a track!dickscroop30/09/2017

Summit 8 of 21 from Bealach Ratagan en route to Saddle.RHW14/06/2015
Clockwise circuit first of five Graham SIMS. Tricky little top in that it has clifs in north and west side necessitating retreat back ascent route till a bit of steep ground allows a way down and on to the next col.vegibagger14/06/2015
long clockwise circuit with dad on his re confirming his Munro status on the right summit of the Saddle. From Shiel Bridge up Graham Biod an Fhithich Forcan ridge of the Saddle and all along Murdo and Graham top SIMS, leaving last one at 9.57pm just before sunset.trigpillocksson14/06/2015
Steep rocky summit, fifth classic cairn-free rocky summit in a row, somehow missed path for a while in the rain on way downalda18/05/2015
