From parking area at Glen Shiel,up to Bealach na Lapain turning East along the ridge taking in Saileag/Sgurr a Bhealaich Dheirg/Aonach Meadhoin. Descended over Sgurr an Fhuarail & the 843m top before aiming for the edge of the forestry to the SW & the A87. Then a 3 & a half mile tab along the road back to the car. On own.MorecambeMonkey26/06/2014
Done solo. Mostly bright. Some low cloud. Started at the same layby for those doing the Five. sisters. Ignore the path as it goes too far west. Go straight up or even slightly right . There is no path.Aimless Rambler28/05/2014
Parked at approx NH 055 115 at the edge of the plantation and used path up Coire Tholl Bhruach. Needed to double back but far better to start here then a long boring walk on a road.Jhimmy16/05/2014
Last of the 3 munros on the ridge. Straight-forward ascent from the col to the East. The descent south to the road is steep, wet and generally unpleasant. The path down is further East than you expectwychwood26/03/2014

I did this as a round by climbing Meall a' Charra then traversing the hillside to get onto Saileag, not very pleasant. If you have two cars it's much better to climb to Bealach an Lapain and do a simple ridge walk ending at Cluanie.steveroberts13/07/2013

Solo. From A87 road at 035119 I walked up beside forest and on to Meall a' Charra. I continued over point 806m to reach the summit of Sgùrr a' Bhealaich Dheirg. Went along the ridge to the summit of Sàileag and down to Bealach an Làpain. I followed a sort of path down to the main road but it is very muddy. I walked back along the road to the car.pwbellarby30/06/2004
