From Arnisdale, following signed path to Bealach Arnasdail, then up ridge to East top, along to main summit of Beinn Sgritheall, across to Northwest top, descended SW to meet path on west ridge and followed that down to Lochan Bhealaich Rarsaidh, then approx S to coast road along track (which doesn't follow the line marked on the 1:25000), returning to Arnisdale along roadkdbennett21/10/2017

Ascent from Arnisdale with Scott B, mist clearing to allow good views on descentbarnz4828/05/2017
With Penda. From wild camp by Loch Hourn, up and down from the North. Steep and very windy but clear and sunny. Amazing views! 5.5 miles, 5 hours.beorwulf30/04/2017
Quick up and back from Arnisdale in the evening. Sadly no views.tomd406/09/2016
save this for a fine day. park in the village of Arnisdale and follow the sign out of the village. this is relentess in steepness. an easy path to follow to the summit of 906m. the path is very steep and you will use your hands to help on the last part of the climb. the views are the best akin to Norway fijords. the path is off the back and easy to follow to a lochen. tou see a path left and this will go through a forest back to the road. its steep so take care. once on the road you have about an hours walk back to the car.Aristotle Chip20/08/2016
Climbed Beinn Sgitheall solo from Arnisdale, including the East Top and NW Top. Ample parking in village. Lovely path up to Bealach Arnasdail. Bouldery climb to E top. Great though short ridge walk from there to the main summit, which is a stupendous viewpoint overlooking Loch Hourn, Skye and the hills of Knoydart and Kintail. After bagging the NW top, I traversed back to the West Ridge for the descent. The last bit through Coille Mhialairigh woods to the Arnisdale road is awkward as I lost the very faint path and ended up fighting through some steep and very overgrown hillside! Weather was fine - no wind, sunny earlier in the day, but clouding up later (mist settled on the summits, but after I left). Was plagued by midges at times, and a swarm of flying ant-like insects at the summit (one of whom bit me!). Nonetheless, a very fine isolated Munro and much recommended!jamessteel10017/08/2016
Solo from the road opposite Eilean Rarsaidh. Careful route finding needed through the woods but once on the ridge, it is a great climb (even in the drizzle!)mikejacobs06/08/2016
A steep climb in a not so nice day. Pretty wet and limited views. Views we did get were good. Difficult hill to get to.akmilne24/09/2015

Fantastic views. Quick ascent with Christine.Keith9916/10/2014
Bla Bheinn in the morning, Beinn Sgritheall in the afternoon. Day 46 of 59 for all Munros.PGCE24/09/2014
I got drenched cloud base was at 300 metres with wind and heavy rain. Took in the East top. No views and the trig point was in 2 pieces. The west ridge was simple but the final path through the Oak and Birch trees was decidedly dodgy in the conditions.isabelle04/08/2014
Just the summit from the Loch, steepest munro they tell me - on round four of chemo I think I did ok!! Absolutely knackered and no chance of risking the sub top!nickywood101/06/2014
On TGO Challenge 2014. Excellent views from the west ridge until I reached the cloud at 800m.alistairpooler09/05/2014
With Robert. Drive up from Gnock then it's a slog up the hill. Started off warm but soon rain and wind. Reached summit around 2hr45 and sat around waiting for a view. When we got some it was worth it. Path off through forest hard going. 10.7km, 1220m, 6hr.bowzi14/09/2013
Desperate struggle up to west col from road - nearly turned back for a second time but did eventually find the path. The start is now marked with a cairn - which I failed to spot twice. Descent to Mam Arnisdale and Arnisdale was a misery on eroded paths.chriswatson13/08/2013
From Arnisdale, climbed steeply. Lost path and went up rock screes. Cloud and wind spoilt views at top. Found path on way down. Beware of false summit cairn in cloud. The real summit is almost 1km away.Jhimmy30/07/2013
