Round of Liathach and Beinn Eighe from Torridon hostel descending, with collapsed shufflee, to Loch Bharranch.Eddie27/05/1994
From Sgurr nan Fhir Duibhe over the Black Carls. Sensational situations reached by Grade 1 scrambling. We topped the highest of 'the Black Regiment'. A good antidote to any tiredness as we had traversed all the Beinn Eighe tops today when we reached Creag Dubh N Top. Got a lift back to my car from Cromasaig, squeezing into a space between climbing gear so I could pick up my brother. Met him still walking- down the main road- to meet me!pwheeler23/05/1992

Cairngorm Club Torridon meet with club members from the roadside at NH025611. We went along the footpath above Allt a’ Chuirn. The footpath continues up a band between two streams although not shown on the map. We climbed a few rocks to the left of the path and reached Creag Dhubh*. We continued to Spidean Coire nan Clach, Ruadh-stac Mór and other tops. *Note added later: This is the top as listed in Munro’s Tables 1974 Edition as a Munro Top. Its height is given as 929m. The 1980 Edition indicates that this top had been deleted as a Munro Top. The DBIH (in 2020) gives this top the name Creag Dhubh (North Top) with height 907m. Also listed in this database is Creag Dhubh with height 929m, situated further south. We went over this top too.pwbellarby26/09/1982
