From Beinn Dearg, via Loch Toll nam Biast. Generally easy terrain, occasionally bouldery, currently very dry underfoot. Nice to see the far side of Beinn Alligin close up. Picked a line through the confusing geography towards Sithean Mor. Then quite a long but beautiful plod along the road back to the parking near Torridon House.Owen B09/07/2018
Late in the day after drive from Fife. A rough walk in, then an easy climb. A nice sunny evening but clouds were down on higher Torridon summits.Topographer5722/05/2018
A great walk via the usual route from the summit of the Diabaig road. There is a trace of a path to guide you round the knolls and lochans, taking you almost to the base of the summit climb. Sunrise views over Loch Torridon were spectacular.Gill20/12/2017
From small parking area at the top of Bealach Gaoithe.Lionel Bidwell19/09/2017
Parked at 827586 and walked in a Northerly direction over gnarly but easy ground past the lochans and then straight up the hill to a rocky summit area. Stunning views of the whole Torridon range with crystal clear skies. Saw two sea eagles too. Can't remember such a good day.Peterb10/02/2017

Pretty easy from the high point on the road. Quite cloudy all around today so some of the views obscured. But atmospheric.jenx06/08/2016

With Dave Roeder. Parked at top of pass (15:55) and walked across confused trackless rising ground to sandstone ramparts then steeply up to summit, just in cloud. Windy; rain threatened but never came. Finished 18:40dbb17/05/2015

Parked in small space 800' up on narrow Diabaig road. Onto trackless deer hillside with wet swamp patches and 4 downs as well as ups, past a lochan with 3 islands before I could see a clear 3/4m line to foot of the conical peak. Into an area of red sandstone boulders with green moss/grass between and to top at 12.45. Very strong SW wind.arranc11/07/2006
