With family during our holiday. Up the 'standard' route (out to the Top alone) and then descended by south ridge. No views from summit unfortunately, but had some good ones otherwise. A great mountain.AGWilliamson12/08/2011

Parked at the roadside to NW of Loch Coire Shubh. I climbed up to Sgùrr a Mhaoraich Beag, surprised to find there was a path for most of the way. Continued to the summit of Sgùrr a Mhaoraich. I went northwards over quite complex terrain. It was a bit misty. Reached the Corbett top of Sgùrr Thionail. Returned southwards for a bit and then crossed a corrie floor and climbed up to the 892m top of Am-Bàthaich. This top, which is the only top of Am-Bàthaich to have a height marked on the OS 1:50,000 map, is not the highest point of Am-Bàthaich. This is further along the summit ridge in a direction WSW. I followed the ridge to the highest point. I could see clearly that this was the highest point. I continued to the col between Sgùrr a Mhaoraich and Sgùrr a Mhaoraich Beag and eventually found my ascent route and followed it back to the car.pwbellarby09/08/2003

my first ascent, solo, overcast, climbed on the goc from a wild camp in gleann dubh lochan, followed the ally ban up, then broke out right to better ground and the summit of the minor top, 607 m. not a recommended route. continued up easier slopes to point 948 then onto the summit of sgurr mhaoraich, were there was a small snow flurry, picked up a rough path along the ridge over minor bumps to sgurr coire nan eiricheallach and the path down to loch quoich and my next camp.rum doodle 09/05/1998
