Clear, cloudy, dead still and very warm. Was breathing midges and clegs active. Took ages because my feet felt like they were in saunas and the rest of me wasn't much better. Carrying tent and full camping gear didn't help.oatcake30/06/2014

MC JC. Climbed from Strathan on route to Glen Kingie. Fine viewpoint. Sunshine with hail and snow showers on top. Dropped steeply down from Bealach and into Glen Kingie. Ground very wet. Camped beside the river and climbed Sgurr an Fhuaran the next morning before exiting to Strathan.Martin6625/05/2007
West up Glen Kingie into the wind and wet to the Bealach below An Eag - steep, then south east up very steep slopes of Sgurr Cos na Breachd-laoidh. Not technical but took me a long time, then nice ridge to Druim a ChuirnWhithaugh09/10/2006

AR Uisdean2523/05/1998
With friend. After ascending Fraoch Bheinn and its N top descended NW ridge and then across to climb Druim a' Chuirn by its E face, finding a somewhat grassy, steep ascent with a small burn, just to S of direct summit line. We reached the summits of Druim a' Chuirn and Sgùrr Còs na Breachd-laoidh. Was warm low down, but a breeze on top made it seem a little cold. The weather looked a little uncertain with cloud and mist coming in. We decided it was worth continuing though to Sgùrr Mòr.pwbellarby20/07/1996
Made the most of a showery day- from Srathan this Marilyn and Druim a Chuirn are connected by a nice ridge and both SE ridges we used, though broad, had rocky areas. Views between the two tops. No butterflies for 'pwheeler' to mention today! With brother, who drove (you have to park at the road end a mile before Strathan), so it was a relaxing road for me this time along Loch Arkaig.pwheeler21/05/1996
