After spending the night at the YHA at torridon i decided to go for this as opposed to Liatach due to the snow ontop. This looked like a good decision. Climbed the horns first which were a lot of up and down. The first horn was the hardest to get off. Themattwilde6625/10/2010

Did it the wrong way round. Great walk but the descent is a bit of a slog.green flash19/10/2009
Climbed my favourite mountain again - after 25 years. Wonderful views, fantastic walk. Clear blue skies, stags roaring - perfect October walking. Beware - the bridge over the lower burn is no longer there. Either walk up the north side of the burn toNorman Reid19/10/2009

From Tom na Gruagaich ascended in good time but weather deteriorated. Thought about the horns but they would tot have been much fun in heavy rain and cloud. So decided to come off at the col and walk anti clockwise round the base back to the car park.garyhoney17/07/2009
