Early morning boat from Mallaig. From Inverie up Gleann Guiserein, then good path up Abhainn Bheag towards Mam Li. Up via Carn Dubh ridge. Descent south halfway along summit ridge before heading E/SE to rejoin route of ascent.benalder28418/11/2019

Cycled from Inverie up Gleann Guiserein, then good path up Abhainn Bheag towards Mam Li then back over summit.Topographer5703/07/2018
From Sgurr Coire Choinnichean. Descended SCC from the NE end of the ridge to the west of the north spur. Entertaining but surprisingly straightforward descent north dodging various outcrops to the river, through the planted area. Across the bridge, then up Abhainn Bheag past the waterfall, then got wet feet crossing the large stream and improvised a route up to the broad plateau area, steep and heathery in places. Then a straightforward plod to the top.Owen B22/06/2018

With M, staying in Inverie, above Post Office. Long walk, a bit damp. Wild.douglas_easton16/05/2015
A good round of this and four related tops from Inverie. A longish day but going mainly good except a slightly awkward descent on poor snow to get to the North top and then a very problematic traverse around the north.west side of the main top to regain the ridge for the remaining tops. Involving a very steep descent in a very loose gulley. There must be a better way but I did not fancy re-ascending the main summit though in hindsight this may well have been quicker and certainly safer.dickscroop01/05/2015
