Solo, no views, rain.Chris Blake26/10/2017
good weather - intermittent cloud/sun, no rain, no wind! route straight up. there's a stalkers 'path' all the way - much the best route. very wet underfoot all the way and quite slide-y especially on way down. very steep mid section. poles essential if coming down same way.highlandchief04/07/2017
Moruisg + Sgurr nan Ceannaichean. Usual route, starting from layby on A890. Very wet underfoot. Broken cloud at top so views were not brilliant. Totally clear by the time I got back to car (typical). Nice walk though!tsharp21/04/2017
With Tony from Glen Carron. Traverse of Moruisg and Sgurr nan Ceannaichean. Managed to reach summits before it clouded over so good views of Torridon peaks and Skye.zoob03/06/2016
park on A890 and an easy path across the river under the railway and up. eventually you go over the crest and the path disappears but follow the hill up and meet a cairn on the east and cairn on the westAristotle Chip20/05/2016

A bit foggy on top, but I made sure I was at the correct cairn by visiting both!Play2End11/10/2014
Long steep ascent with little relief until the top is reached. Thin path if you can find it. Beware of new deer fences to protect the newly planted trees. Only a few gates I could see.Jhimmy27/06/2014

Solo. 1 Munro+Corbett. Cracker of a day, clear skies and very little wind. Set off early and had to do all the hard work in the snow for everyone else! :D 2hr20 to summit. 2hrs to Corbett (inc lunch). Off via N ridge and back via stalker path. 12.5km, 1070m 7hr.bowzi10/11/2013
Done with declassified hill next to it. Very mixed day with stunning views one minute then hail and nil visbility.akmilne31/08/2013

From layby below. Blowing a gale was glad for a quick up and down.rhalstead30/06/2013
Ascent by north ridge and continued over the tops to Carn Gorm. Light covering of snow and very fine weather. As for "no redeeming features", try the corries to the east and that view!fasgadh03/11/2012

Abandoned this hill in a blizzard two days earlier. Climbed direct from railway underpass in high winds and wet, misty conditions. Far too windy for Ceannaichean ridge so dropped straight back down for the nearby Hump.chriswatson20/03/2011

Easy hill, but not exciting climb. Great views from top.green flash22/10/2009
Unexciting hill. Easily climbed, though, and well worth it for the fantastic views all round, especially of the Torridon hills.Norman Reid22/10/2009

The previous day we had cycled up in torrential rain and managed to locate a suitable camp site and climbed Sgurr nan Ceannaichean. Martin suffered greatly as his legs not used to cycling and walking. he crawled and suffered to get this munro and now hilariously it is now not a munro. Ha ha. We found the bothy and dried out. Today we did Moruisg, what a boring peak. Found the graves of Lady Cobbold interesting life she had and Toby Sladen. Great place to rest. Descent back to Craig on bike superb.
