Traversed Carn Eige, cloud lifted to tease me and put me in disparaging mood at the ascent/descent and distance needed to bag this Munro and back to Carn Eige. Actually it wasnt too bad.Jhimmy22/06/2014

MY LAST MUNRO!!! From bivi just to south on summit where I ended a very long day yesterday (see Carn Eige)so I was on top in time to see the sunrise which managed to beat the slowly increasing cloud. Celebrated with a pork pie brought especially for the occasion and a whisky miniature. Also completed yesterday all Munro tops and I thought at the time all deleted tops though I subsequently found another 6 of these do. No phone signal so I could not phone my wife to get myself congratulated but I did pass two people on the way down and told them so that they could be the first to congratulate me - which they did. Due to very early start got down in fine weather with the strong wind and cloud which was to dominate later in the day just coming in. Finished in winter room of Glen SAffric SYHA before walking out to road.dickscroop30/09/2013

2nd of 5 w/Jim. Dropped down from Sodhail and followed the bypass path to skip Eighe...although this was soon lost in the poor visibility. A couple of ups and downs before you're out on Findlay but with zero views you don't see how much height you have to regain.bowzi24/08/2013

After Cairn Eige, dumped the sacks at the col and strolled up. Lunched at Coire Lochan and walked out along the shore of Loch Mullardoch. As this was waist deep heather and rough terrain we were grateful that the water level was low so we could boulder hop along the shore, but in places we were forced back into the waist deep heather. Being very tired Mrs Mindlessflogger slipped whilst crossing a stream and got a soaking so we camped and finish the walk the next day. Ever since then no walk has been as rough as Loch Mullardoch.mindlessflogger09/06/2013

Back in the 1980s, Pete my brother teased me about this- you're the bagger I'll relax here on Carn Eige. I was dismissive,but by 2010 it had to be bagged,just a few Munros to do.Easy enough but it seemed to take a long time; back, a contour route to Mam Sodhail went well and was surpisingly quick. An 11h day from the Glen Affric RE, but idyllic. Every minute a delight.pwheeler26/05/2010

staying at Albeithe YH, anticlockwise traverse over An Socach Man Sodhail, Carn Eige, sub Murdo Munro top, up Beinn Fhionlaidh, then back down into valley and north to south along Mullach na Dhearagain, skirting SE across the corrie rim back to beallach east of An Socach and though tired, forcing myself to hoof it up to Murdo Stob Coire na Cloiche, because I knew I'd kick myself forever in the future if I didn't.vegibagger26/07/2007
Continued north on to the end of the ridge from the minor 'bump' in front of it. yorkie25/07/2007
