Two-day backpack: Strathan - Fraoch Bheinn - NW ridge to Glen Kingie - bealach at NM975976 - Sgurr Mor - Sgurr Beag - camp near NM947953 - Sgurr Cos na Breachd-laoidh - An Eag - Sgurr nan Coireachan - Garbh Chioch Mhor - Sgurr na Ciche - descent via Glen Dessarrydavidpettit8428/05/2014
Afternoon walk 20 degC +. From Strathan-Dearg Allt then joined the NNE ridge halfway up. The SMC guide said it was good and indeed it gave a great way up a fine mountain. Hazy views, then down SSW ridge- the usual way, quite gentle for the area. Had a lovely morning at the butterfly reserve though only 2 Chequered Skippers; abundant Green Hairstreaks nectaring on bluebells on the way back to Strathan were just as enjoyable. Great summer day.pwheeler20/05/2014

Gorgeous, crisp, v cold morning. On way out from Kinbreck, Ken and I decided to climb Fraoch Bheinn from the pass. Brilliant views. V icy in placesniallp18/02/2007
After Sgurr Mhurlagain dropped pack on north side of bealach then straight up west side of Fraoch Bheinn, very steep with easy scramble and good fun & top reached suddenly. Went north along summit ridge then at about 989 948 swung south east down steep grass back to my pack.Whithaugh07/10/2006
MC JC. Combined with Sgurr Mhurlagain. Clouds well above summits and deep snow above 300 m made for hard going. Climbed Fraoch Bheinn first and made two abortive attempts due to steep ice sheets to descend towards Mhurlagain before finding a route off SE from the summit. Mhurlagain thigh deep in snow. Descended easily. Hundreds of deer at car eating beetroot!Martin6627/02/2005

With friend. Went to west end of Loch Arkaig before deciding on Corbetts plus Sgùrr Mòr. The weather situation was not clear- different forecasts were different. Walked up track towards Glendessary. Struck up the hillside to gain the SSW ridge of Fraoch Bheinn and reached the summit. We went on to the N top and continued to Sgùrr Còs na Breachd-laoidh and Sgùrr Mòr.pwbellarby20/07/1996
