Out from Conival and then back same way. Didn't bother with the South Top this time. Solo.Dangerous Dave01/10/2019
Solo - done with Conival mproudfoot01/09/2019
Bagged with Conival (987m) from the Inchnadamph car park in the north west highlands. These are two hills that I had planned on getting multiple times, when I lived in Inverness, but there was always an excuse not to, so Iím very chuffed to have finally bagged them. In the wind shelter on Conival I met a very friendly 73 year old called Keith and we paired up for the rest of the day. 09:40hrs in total sunshine and blue skies till 5pm then overcast but dry.chillyman815/07/2019
With Jonathan. Glorious day.Chris Blake07/06/2019
MMC Durness WE. With Iain Wilson left Ulapool YH 0800 for Ichnadamph. followed WH route. Stiff pull to bealach. Sensational alpine round on easy snow. Met about 18 people during the day. 8 hoursalexmaclennan10/05/2019

mist and windy with mike shaw and peter walkerlithosyork29/12/2018
Reached from the car park at Inchnadamph on an eleven mile walk first summiting Conival. Walk took around seven hours in wintery conditions (beware of the pink rock as this can be very slippery) and the path can be difficult to pick out at times, still a brilliant walk along the ridge in between the two tops.WAYNE ROWLETT24/12/2018
What a mountain and what a day!- the whole ridge and surrounding wilderness in sharp sunlight- a joy to be up here. Huge spectacular and unusual quartzite towers on ridge. HP was a central outcrop. Lingered over lunch before continuing to Conival.Denise 14/10/2018
Warm and sunny day - good visibility for much of the day. Nice walk from Inchnadamph - clear, dry and reasonably sunny. Good paths except the rough climb to the ridge.Capt Malbec14/10/2018
From Inchnadamph (Loch Assynt) along Traligill to Conival and then along the ridge to Ben More Assynt. Cloudy conditions, improving, but strong cross wind on ridge across to Ben More Assynt.knarf29/08/2018
Climbed with Rob, together with Conival. Very cold and windy with quite a lot of snow. Ice axe and crampons left in the car because there wasn't much snow yesterday.banksey23/04/2018

2nd munro of day.Weather really atrocious - strong cold wind and heavy rain becoming hail after we summitted. Bridge near Inchnadamph which we crossed on way up now overwhelmed by strong current and unsafe to use.dave neilson29/07/2016
From Inchnadamph Lodge, the path is clear (even after it ends on the map) all the way over Conival and on to Ben More. Given that 5 hours of the 7 were in the fog, that's just as well. The walk along the river at the start and end was lovely. The climbing and descending in the fog was slippy and quite tough! However county top 17 complete.callumorr25/07/2016
Third visit, in order to clear up outlying tops. Very windyColin Crawford14/06/2016
Walked with the Steven Faloon group. Good weather. Deep snow.Eileen O'Neil01/05/2016
with Nick and Quicke also Conival againDunlawyering30/09/2015
Continued along ridge in the mist from conival...2 munros in one day is getting a bit much for an old fella like me.steven ruffles31/08/2015
From Conival, the ridge was in thick cloud. No problems. Decided to return to Conival rather then the planned other route down. Don't forget to check both cairns - which are 100m apart- just in case.Jhimmy26/08/2015
Climbed with Conival, very clear day.tomd422/08/2015
Same day as Conival, views to West North and East coasts from the top.thedayman9222/08/2015

Descended from Conival at 16.00 and set off for Ben Mor Assynt. Steep descent down the eroded loose scree path and then the undulating bouldery ridge. Reminded me of the Grey Corries and a bit of Cuillin. Long way out to summit and very steep pull up to summit. Bit precarious and very cautious descent on the return trip got a bit windy a this point. But was a long weary walk out to fish and chips that hotel kept aside for me cos I knew I would not be back befor the kitchen closed. Great day. Happy woman 😎munromurph03/07/2015
Walked up from Inchnadamph via Conival. Cloudy and windy on top today. Last ridge was snowy and windy but ice axe not needed as snow was quite soft. Summit was very very windy. Back again same way.tsharp09/06/2015

From Inchnadamph vis Conival. Some snow patches on ridge.SteveG16/04/2015
Inchnadamph - Conival - Ben More Assynt and back, with Andrew. Conditions much better than last September when I abandoned at the top of Conival. Possibly the hottest day of the year so far.killiedaft25/07/2014
Onwards from Conival. Possible point of equal height about 100m east of usual summit. Return by outward route over Conival.Man of Kernow106/06/2014
2nd of 2. Winds strong enough to blow you sideways and minimal visibility meant it was an interesting jaunt along the ridge. Was more than happy to be descending, even in driving rain. 18.7km, 1255m, 7hr20.bowzi18/01/2014

Inchadamph - Conival - Ben More Assynt - S Top - Corbett Top - Breabag - valley of Allt nan Uamh to car park where met family waiting. Breabag is not up to much to be quite frank! Still good, but not same quality as other hills in this area. Conival and Ben More Assynt are epic. The ridge to Munro Top is quite narrow and exposed. With GW & RW to Ben More & then alone from there.AGWilliamson20/09/2012
A long walk in but a good ridge once there..all sorts of weather this day, hail,rain wind etc. Walked with Aly & MuttsMc Tango21/08/2012
Conival and Ben More Assynt from Inchnadamph. Clouds clear just as we reach the valley on our return.rhalstead04/07/2012
Estimated date. Done solo in late Spring early summer. Weather appalling. Heavy rain and wind at sea level was a blizzard on the summits. I was physically blown over on returning to Conival.Aimless Rambler02/06/2012
