|Solo on a glorious autumn day. Parked at the burial ground car park just off the A87. A gate opposite gives access to a sometimes boggy track leading up to the older stalkers path marked on the map. Continued all the way to the col where the end of the path is marked with a cairn. A path leads across the boggy col & then all the way to the summit. Light snow covering on top & a superb panoramic view. Wandered over to the W top & then returned by the same route for a quick descent. A fine hill||NotReallyABagger||30/10/2019|

|Parked at Falls of Glomach car park. Up private road for 100 yds, through gate and headed up to find path which leads to excellent stalkers path further west. Warmest place in UK on this day within Shiel Bridge area. About 4 hour return with CM with clear views and blue skies.||bolton||28/06/2019|

|From cemetery car park up track and excellent stalkers path to col then followed good path to trig (split by lightning). Wandered around all the possible high points. Back by same route. Mist but still hot and sticky.||SS||04/06/2018|
|Climbed with Jim and Ian on DMC New year trip. Great new years day starting with sunshine. On top visibility was poor and wind picked up.||amcculloch||01/01/2018|
|Start at burial car park NOT on the A87 as per SMC book. This 200 m off the A87. Zigzag path also starts directly opposite, not further down also stated in my SMC Corbett guide. Path leading all the way to top in a somewhat complicated mountain top from my grayed out view. Cylindrical trig point now split on top.||Jhimmy||17/10/2016|
|From burial ground, path all the way. Marked wind speed increase and temperature drop at high altitude. Path crosses no water sources above 100m, and there is no safe access to the ravine to the north.||Topographer57||08/10/2016|
|Good path and excellent views. Summit rock is about 25 East of Trig Point. A herd of about 50 goats seen west of summit on Sgurr na Seamraig.||duchally||24/08/2016|
|In a break between wet weather, started from the cemetery/memorial cp at Ruarth and took the new track starting at the gate opposite. This joined the old track shown on the OS map which gives a nice walk twisting between knolls and joining ridges higher up. I spent an hour on the summit area and visited a W top that gave better views seaward as well as a flock of goats, a Ring Ouzel and Golden Plovers plus many arctic moths- Phiaris obsoletana. Very heavy shower on the descent (same way), there was some thunder so just as well I overlooked the Hump.||pwheeler||24/06/2016|
|From the cemetery car park, following the good path all the way. Route and write-up at: http://gayleybird.blogspot.co.uk/2016/05/carn-nan-iomairean-and-sgurr-airgid.html||Gayle||13/05/2016|
|33rd – Solo. Cloud base lowering at times to 600m, but often above 1000m. Occasional snow showers, otherwise excellent visibility and some sunshine. Bus to Shiel Bridge, walked round to Morvich. Start up hillside not obvious, found a better route on way down coming out at cemetery just off main road. A lot of snow from the bealach, 'alpine feel'.||RGibbs||24/02/2016|
|Walked with Nicola. Good well graded ascent up stalkers path, starting at burial ground car park. Still less wind on this hill than anticipated - go visit whilst it lasts.
Shattered concrete trig column at highest point. Excellent views.||andrew larkins||25/06/2015|
