To and from the Bealach. Bagging the trig.BigJ24/04/2019
With Malky C and Jackie, from Drochaid Mhor to south. Up long main ridge, down NE coire. Warm, sunny day with little wind. Good views with a little haze. Rounsfell09/04/2019
From Bealach na Ba parking. Up the track, then south. This section was unpleasant, large boulders at awkward angles with ankle breaking crevices. Contoured round to Bealach nan Arr. Then after an initially rocky ascent straightforward to the summit trig, on an ENE bearing in the mist. On the return cut the corner SSW from Bealach nan Arr back to the parking, a bit better but still managed to collect a large bruise on my shin. Rained all the way back from the summit. No time to bag the other nearby Corbett.Owen B10/07/2018

65th – With Allan. From minor road part way up pass to Applecross (by bend at 220m), easy scramble up SE face to summit (Sgurr a Chaorachain), follow the highest line around to Beinn Bhan (quite rocky ground), descend SE ridge of Beinn Bhan to minor road. Mostly dry, broken cloud occasionally lowering below tops building throughout afternoon.RGibbs25/09/2017
Up SE ridge from bridge at Tornapress. Low cloud, rain, wind but intermittent views of A'Chioch and other ridges which looked unappealing in the wet.MichaelF12/09/2017

What a great hill. Didn't fancy the A Chioch route up though. The ridge up to Sron Coire na Fhamair was exciting enough.ngthack14/04/2016
With Aleciansm02/05/2015
On a sunny day using the path from the Applecross road with J & Shaky during a Strathcarron stay. Followed it until it peters out & then on to the Bealach nan Arr over very rough ground. Over pt. 676m where the ground was teemming with frogs! The mist temporarily settled over the summit of Beinn Bhan, but cleared to give a great view. Back by the same route.NotReallyABagger24/06/2014

Trig revisit. Fantastic hill despite flattish summit - was in cloud on my previous visit. From S, bagged 2 GTs and 2 CTs but the Chioch and Phoit tops will have to wait - they are a long way down. Very windy morning - the day when the 3 day Liathach fire started.RHW30/04/2011

Watch out for dodgy compass bearings - magnetic rocks.Gill01/01/2000
With two friends. We parked beside the bridge where the Applecross road crosses the Russel Burn. We walked NE to join the ridge coming down from Beinn Bhàn. We ascended this ridge easily, going over a couple of minor tops with impressive views of A’ Chioch. We reached the summit of Beinn Bhàn where we had lunch. We went SW over a minor top and found a stalkers’ path going down to Bealach nan Arr. We followed the path which continued beyond the bealach under Carn Dearg. We left the path to go S to reach point 776m, and over two minor tops to reach the summit of Sgùrr a’ Chaorachain. We descended the steep slopes to the SE. They were easier than expected with small rocky steps, where difficulties could be easily got round. The weather held good all day in spite of the forecast not being all that promising.pwbellarby08/11/1997
From Bealach na BaBLACKHILL07/07/1997
From Loch Kishorn. Stalkers' path due north under E corries uphill aiming for central prow of hill over heather, stones, grass and bog. to loch in corrie. 3/4m making for grassy band on N side of corrie. Narrow green cleft steeply up between next 3 or 4 sandstone bands. Steep clamber out of wet gully to crags. 2 arm push ups astride a sliver of rock is not the mildest of scrambling in my book! To summit plateau and to top at 14.30. to S top.arranc17/07/1996
