Parked near Achnacon then south on LR track past last house then straight up steep heathery slope to Aonach Dubh a'Ghlinne, along ridge to Stob an Fhuarain then Sgurr na h-Ulaidh. Then north down steep slope and tricky down scramble and along stream back to LR track.Ellie's Hills30/12/2019

Did as Martin Beetham's last munro party. Weather very wet. Didn't see much at all from the ridge.JulieB26/05/2019
Having been defeated by a massive cornice on the N 'nose' in 2016, went via Bealach Easan and up Corr na Beinne, but difficult to pre-determine a complete route up the NW flank as the bealach is too close to the hill - went up ascending TR R, then an ascending TR back L, generally steep with one short very steep bit of hard neve.Isbjorn Winter Round11/02/2019
Beautiful walk in along the banks of a stream in spate then a tiring pathless ascent on steep grass to a wonderful ridge. Up and over a rocky top down and up again steeply to summit. Back the same way. Clear, sunny, wonderful views. Amazing.Langbank 10/10/2018
Up Gleann-leac-na-muidhe and then over Stob na Fhuarain before ascending to the summit. Clear, sunny day but windy on the tops. Back the same way.Windy Corner27/05/2018

Solo from Invercharnan in Glen Etive Snow from 500m - getting firm enough to walk on in many places made going easier Ascent via East Ridge - surprised this isn't Winter G1 - exposed and a bit sketchy in placeswychwood07/01/2018

Along track from Achnacon on A82, following tracks by Allt na Muidhe to the last woodland, then diagonally up slopes of Aonach Dubh a' Ghlinne to the bealach N of Stob an Fhuarain, then along ridge over Stob an Fhuarain to Sgurr na h-Ulaidh, left summit westwards, turning N with fence line towards Bealach Easain (difficult descent over steep wet rocks), then down to Allt na Muidhe and track on east bank back to A82kdbennett23/09/2017

From Glen Coe, path not very good after track finishes. Took a fairly direct line into Coire Dubh and then winding up between the crags to the Stob an Fhuarain col. This was steep but straightforward, a walk not a scramble, mostly grassy slopes with a little scree.alda10/10/2016
With Andrew McCluskey, Lily and Hibbert following the WH route. Steep grass and bouldery slopes. Occasional cloud and rain and then great clear views of Glencoe and Etive hills and to Mull. 6 hoursalexmaclennan12/07/2016
2nd day of our Glencoe trip (with Paul & Adam). Adams idea as it was a Munro he needed to bag. Good walk with some really good views from the top. Fairly long walk in/out via landrover track then following the stream up, before breaking off to the left and hitting the ridge line. Good weather as well. Descent on the other side of the Munro was ok with a bit of a hairy bit half way down. I believe its known as the bad step - was ok but can see how it would be dangerous in the wet.scholesy04/06/2016
Trad route, over intermediary, but final 50m to top was heavily corniced - not passable and ground to either side was steeper and exposed.Isbjorn Winter Round24/02/2016

An easy ascent from Invercharnan, Glen Etive. In partial cloud at the summit. The tree felling on the approach now blights this approach.Roblex18/09/2014
Group of 4 turned back on steep snow slopes just a few minutes away from the summit but I kicked my way vertically up using ice axes but not crampons as snow was deep and sugary. Lots of rime on top.signyred18/02/2014

With Jim on a pretty decent day. Up via road with it's dodgy signs about 'gardens not being a right of way' >:/ East off the path up hillside, over Fhurain and a lunch break prior to steep ascent to Ulaidh. Off NW between crags (dodgy in snow w/o crampons) before heading back to path and out. 15.2km, 1180m, 7hr55.bowzi31/03/2013
