Via Coire an Laoigh and pt 977Isbjorn Winter Round03/01/2019
From the road to SSE, following good path up into Coire an Laoigh. At NG 9693 5937 left the path to take the fine rocky ridge Stuc Coire an Laoigh. Trig pillar first then almost walked past the scrappy little cairn that marks the summit. Continued E along the ridge for a couple of very fine hills - Sgurr Ban and the Sgurr nan Fhir Duibhe and some deleted Munro tops - dropping off the end and back to Kinlochewe.

Beinn Alligin, Beinn Eighe and Liathach in a day. Day 57 of 59 for all Munros. 28km, +/- 3400m, 13 hours 30.PGCE22/04/2016
Started near plantation on road from Kinlochewe at NG97703 57804. Cloud from about 800m nearly broke through in to temperature inversion at trig point, but not quite. Beautiful thick ice formations on rocks on ridge to summit. Felt really safe with crampons. Day 4 of Wintermountaineering and Skills course led by Kevin O'Neale and with Al Simpson.SteveSmith06/02/2015
A quick jaunt up from the road. No detours, no ridges. Clear and sunny. Three and a half hours.Play2End13/10/2014
After looking down the gully I am pleased I went the scrambly boulder way. Skirted around Coinneach Mhor to save the boulder lump then proceeded carefully along the first ridge. Starting to feel a bit better about the airishness until the final summit push after the trig pillar took all my nerve. I am saying never again, but maybe with a group I would find it easier.LizzieG16/09/2014
Nice sunny hot day. Lovely rocky top to climb. Superb views - almost breath-taking.Jhimmy25/06/2014

With Jim, 2nd of 2. Easy enough traverse over from Ruadh stac Mhor and would've liked to have continued onto the Black Carls but it was too late in the day. Wind started to pick up, decent route off then 3km back along road. 8hr55, 20km, 1585m.bowzi01/09/2011
Great day with fantastic views. Just made the top of this one before the weather closed in.akmilne17/05/2011
Revisit. Followed obvious path from SSE, which reaches the S spur 200m S of the trig. Made the short traverse to revisit the airy Munro summit. Alligin-Liathach-Eighe trigs on a perfect spring day :-)RHW01/05/2011
