Climbed with Ian G and Richard on a blue sky day, low wind. Nice scramble although a little soggy. Returned to NTS Moll Mor Hut at Torridon for New Year celebration .amcculloch31/12/2019

Usual route from Beinn Eighe visitor centre. Carried on beyond the high point of the trail in the vain hope of finding a path up the valley east of the hill. Ended up on the hill side of the stream on poor ground. Quite enjoyed the bouldery scramble from the south of the hill. Sadly no views, the promised brightening up of the weather was about 3 hours late. Picked a better, higher line east of the stream on return, rejoined the trail at about the 380m contour.Owen B28/08/2019
Out & back from the Beinn Eighe visitor centre. On own.MorecambeMonkey26/06/2019
From the Beinn Eighe visitors' centre. Cracking scramble up the NE face, technical, and difficult in places, with several false trails and backtracking until bottom of a grassy ramp we had spotted earlier (starting at NG 9749 6160) was gained. Wet and windy for most of the walk although sheltered from the wind on the E side of the hill. Clouds cleared at the top for extensives views. Descended the NW side over steep scree and boulder fields. On to Meall a'Ghiubhais. With Steve Lewis.jonglew10/09/2018

From visitor centre on track with Shaky & Smithy on a hot, sunny day. Weather didn't exacty make a tough, rocky ascent any easier, but what a hill! Followed track more or less to its end & then turned S to follow E bank of Allt Toll a'Ghiubhais under the E flank of the hill. Just before Loch Uaine turned to ascend steep, rocky & loose S ridge to flat summit. Returned by same route except took much higher line from col above burn heading NE over reasonable ground to meet outward track near fence line - a good option at least in descent which saved a good half hour.NotReallyABagger18/09/2015

A fantastic calm sunny evening at the end of a great day having climbed Ordinary Route on the Triple Buttress with Mick Guest. I led the whole way -6 or 7 pitches of mountaineering Diff which the guidebook describes rather vaguely as ' continue up an interesting and varied series of pitches to the top' Once up I went off to squeeze the most from this beautiful summer's evening to bag this remote Corbett by dropping down from Beinn Eighe summit (left sack at col) then after up and down the Corbett back up Beinn Eighe to be on top at 9.30pm -before a fast decent despite climbing gear to the road. Caught up Mick then back to hostel for 11pm - meal and bed.Chris Pearson26/05/1987
