A 33.5km, 3 Munro epic at Glenuig, climbing Sgurr Choinnich, Sgurr a' Chaorachain & Maoile Lunndaidh. Tricky with 45mph gusts but a cracking day out.Chris Mac13/04/2019
From Craig to Glenuaig Lodge, then an ATV track leads from the lodge to the river, but there is no crossing point, so went back W until could splash across. Crossed An Crom-allt at NH 11255 46748 where a path climbs out, up the E bank, then peters out. Zig-zag'd up NW flank on heather, slime and greasy rocks, to Carn nam Fiaclan (no signs of other humans having used this often recommended route in texts) and on to summit. Because of the challenging river crossings, returned to Carn nam Fiaclan and descended over greasy rocks and then a fair path down W ridge to Drochaid Mhuillich, then down E flank of Sron na Frianich until could cross over and head for the plantation and back down to Craig.Isbjorn Winter Round21/02/2019

Munro round, Maoile Lunndaidh to the Corbett Beinn Tharsuinn, from Glen Carron.Eddie28/05/1994
After climbing Moruisg and Sgùrr nan Ceannaichean. From summit of latter descended SE. Crossed the track to Glenuaig Lodge and the An Crom-allt to ascend steeply to the end of the flat topped west ridge of Carn nam Fiaclan. We ascended to the top of Carn nam Fiaclan, over the deleted top (once the Munro*) and so to Maoile Lunndaidh. By now it was extremely windy. We descended by the NW ridge to reach Glenuaig Lodge, walked along track westwards and northwards and then via Coire an t-Seilich to the car at NH081521. *Note added 2015: Now the Marilyn but not yet declared to be Munro again.pwbellarby26/06/1993

Gate at rail crossing locked. With bike uphill pushing most of way to last gate. Off at 11.25. Negotiated small gorge in An Crom-allt. Slog uphill on moss, short heather and crags. Still uphill at last to tundra like flats. Dotterel only feet away, I was the intruder. To top at 14.20. Views obscured by mist. To Toll a'Choin.arranc06/06/1989
With John from Pollan Buidhe but cannot remember which direction. I have a memory of ascending the 'ridge'. Another to ask John. SS28/05/1988
Alone. I set off very early from a bivvy near the track beside Allt a' Chonais, going to Glenuaig Lodge. I crossed the shoulder of Sron na Frianich and across An Crom-allt to go steeply up to end of flat W ridge of Carn nam Fiaclan. I reached Creag Toll a Choin at 05:20 and Maoile Lunndaidh at 05:30. The descent was by the broad NW ridge to Glenuaig Lodge and back to Craig. There was a lot of rain on the descent.pwbellarby09/05/1987
