A fine day on Beinn Eighe around Ruadh-Stac Mor, out and back to Sail Mhor over Coinneach Mhor finishing on Spedean Coire nan Clach.rhalstead23/06/2014
Solo, via Morrison's Gully. After Beinn a'Chearcaill. Completely verglassed rocks prevented further progress to Coinneach Mhor.amswanston04/01/2014
with Jamie and dog Ben-Ji. NW through valley to the S and steeply up the western end of Sail Mhor. Snowy higher up as we get to the gash into it's northern side. great view of tripple buttress. A very spectacular viewpoint altogether and absolutely ought to be a Munro summit. Along and past the bad step on to Coinneach Mhor and then eventually rather steeply down to early into the valley. We should've gone further east first.vegibagger09/04/2012

First hill on a big day doing all the summits of Ben Eighe. Horrific midges in car-park meant a hurried departure from Glen Torridon for the hill. Hard work reaching this first summit, more pleasant after that.Aye Jimmy24/07/1996
Round of Liathach and Beinn Eighe from Torridon hostel descending, with collapsed shufflee, to Loch Bharranch.Eddie27/05/1994

Started our Ben Eighe traverse by going up Coire Dubh Mor to Loch Coire Mhic Fhearchair. We watched climbers on the Triple Buttress, then ascended Sail Mhor by a nice crescent ridge. With Pete. A sunny day with an E wind- later, we learned it had been wet in Inverness.pwheeler23/05/1992

Beinn Eighe climbed on many occasions, but this the only ascent of Sail Mhor. Still snow on the ground from the hard winter.JohnW28/05/1986
Winter climb up stunning Morrison's Gully to summit - a steep snowy plough up an easy grade I deep gully cutting through the cliffs to the summit. Its been skied down. With Mark H then around to do the Munro at dusk then long sweeping slide down snow on the south face back to the road. good photo of route at http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/c.php?i=453#photosChris Pearson31/12/1985
Last peak of an east to west traverse with YHS gang -not the off ridge Munro- which the gang went for whilst Mark and me went for this top for completeness but then had no time to back track for the Munro, so descended south slope -rock dislodged by M hit me on the elbow-ouch. Had been dry all day -with snow and ice on ridge-but rain came on at glen before road.Chris Pearson30/12/1984
