Day 2 of 3. Beinn a'Chaisgein Mor & Beinn a'Chaisgein Beag from campspot at Lochan Feith Mhic'-Illean. On own.MorecambeMonkey17/05/2018
Cycle in from Poolewe, left bike near Kernsary and walked, passing Carnmore to lochan at top of bealach and then NWish up ridge to summit. Wonderful views especially back into Fishfield but also out to Clisham - the next on the list! Return same way to savour the views. 29miles in all.MichaelF21/07/2017
5 of 10: From Frith-mheallan.ChrisR14/06/2017
A perfect day for a big walk. Walked in to Carnmore and left some gear. Up to the summit for 7pm then back down to the bothy.Alan08/05/2017

Walked in from Poolewe in morning, dumped some kit at Carnmore before climbing hill. Superb day, sunny and enough breeze to keep down the midges.Grinner20/08/2016
This is a great walk. Biked in along the ever lovely Gruinard river. The only nasty bit was walking up the S bank of Allt Loch a'Ghiubhsachain, which was atrociously rough. The going gets easier higher up towards the very easy path below Creag na Sgoinne, and then the walking is really good, with splendid views. I met Nordicstar and Jenx on their way to BaC Beag, and they had guessed who I was from yesterday's bothy book - the power of the interweb. The walk over Frith Meallan to BaC Mor is a nice easy stroll, and the views are rather hard to beat. But the view from the summit has to be seen to be believed. Awesome. On the way down, I left the path near the lochans below Creag na Sgoinne, and made a bee-line towards the bike, using the crags on the N side of the Gruinard river as a land mark, and following the stream below Cnoc na h-Earra. This is miles easier than following the Allt Loch a'Ghiubhsachain, although a bit boggy, the ground is nice and smooth.Gill02/08/2016
Third Corbett of the day. Spent a calm warm clear night on the summit and photographed sunrise.oatcake04/06/2016

From Poolewe. Bike to forest gate above Kernsary.ChrisR06/05/2012
Quick up-and-back from the east. A flat topped hill but great views all around.davidpettit8404/06/2011
Revisit. Original plan was just B a'c Beag, after the ferry from Stornoway but a combination of boat and weather problems saw me back on the mainland early. With an 0630 start from Inverianvie River Bridge (ex G1818 FB) I was at the trig in 3 hours and on Creag-mheall Mor by 1130. With a lot of day left I unfolded the map and realised that the impressive-looking Ruadh Stac Mor was probably doable so I headed there over a string of Sims / Graham Tops then back via 2 more Graham Tops and Beinn Chaisgein Mor - a superb 15 hour, 14 summit, 27 mile day.RHW02/06/2011
MC JC. See description for Beinn Lair.Martin6615/08/2010
