From Glen Brittle Memorial Hut, good track leads up into Coir' a' Ghrunnda, gets a bit scrambly but nothing difficult. Fourth hill on a linear route to Gars-bheinn. On to Sgurr a' Choire Bhig.jonglew01/10/2019
From Glenbrittle camp site, via moorland paths to foot of SW flank - not a route I wish to repeat. An initial slabs 'barrier' at the start of the SW flank was passed approximately centrally, then 2,000 feet of snow covered unstable boulders and scree, interspersed with slabs coated with water-ice. Lots of 'dead' ground above, meaning some route choices had to be reversed once what was in the dead ground was revealed. If there is an 'obvious' zig-zag scree path, I saw no signs of it. Route finding was not half so difficult coming back down, but care had to be taken to locate the passage back through the slabs barrier.Isbjorn Winter Round18/01/2019

First summit on traverse to Sgurr Alasdair. Walk round to Coir' a' Ghrunnda from Glen Brittle easy, ascent to Loch more difficult as was ascent onto ridge. Great views across to Bla Bheinn. Walked out to Gars-bheinn and returned over summit again.quadbarrel15/10/2014

2nd of 2. After having lunch I then started the trek over to nan Eag...ended up on the wrong side of the ridge and had a hairy moment to get back on the right side. Ran into troubles descending too...very different to mainland Munros! 16.6km, 1685m, 11hr30.bowzi16/06/2014
Climbed from Glenbrittle Campsite with my dad (his and my first Cuillin Munro) in beautiful clear conditions. Relatively straightforward approach from Loch a Ghrunnda. Seemed to be one of the very few people on the hill without a Guide.andy04/06/2014
