Enroute up A straight forward Munro (Sgurr a Mhaoraich), done on a bright and breezy day. met up with a chap called Nigel Simpson and we did the route together . A fine end to a week away.Shutterlag01/05/2017
Path all the way to the top. Met couple who abandoned due to high winds, but it wasn't bad and only breezy on ridge. Just before I got to top, cloud came in. Wanted to descend by south ridge but compass pointed wrong direction, a puzzler (magnetic rock?) later pointed in correct direction, but too late as I just returned by same route.Jhimmy14/10/2016
Cold, windy and clag. Glad to get off !!Moorponder13/10/2016
Not a bad day in between the showers. Steep at the top. I had started on stalkers track past the baby forrest where they actually build a new road up the hill. It finishes where the stalkers track nearly runs out. Good way in the near term. It might be locked in future.tallblond02/07/2016

After the two previous munros this one sucked the joy juice from me. I am sure it is a great peak but vowed never again to ascend its slopes munro number 118 nearly made me give up. Thankfully not. Company: Martin Stewart.iandesbottes26/06/2004

...cont from Spidean M. From Altbeithe crossed river with difficulty, then over Am-Bethaich to Sgurr a'Mhaoraich via N ridge. No time for W top; descended E then S to loch. Car 21:10 dbb22/04/2004
Parked at the roadside to NW of Loch Coire Shubh. I climbed up to Sgùrr a Mhaoraich Beag, surprised to find there was a path for most of the way. Continued to the summit of Sgùrr a Mhaoraich. I went northwards over quite complex terrain. It was a bit misty. Reached the Corbett top of Sgùrr Thionail. Returned southwards for a bit and then crossed a corrie floor and climbed up to the 892m top of Am-Bàthaich. This top, which is the only top of Am-Bàthaich to have a height marked on the OS 1:50,000 map, is not the highest point of Am-Bàthaich. This is further along the summit ridge in a direction WSW. I followed the ridge to the highest point. I could see clearly that this was the highest point. I continued to the col between Sgùrr a Mhaoraich and Sgùrr a Mhaoraich Beag and eventually found my ascent route and followed it back to the car.pwbellarby09/08/2003

my first ascent, solo, overcast, climbed on the goc from a wild camp in gleann dubh lochan, followed the ally ban up, then broke out right to better ground and the summit of the minor top, 607 m. not a recommended route. continued up easier slopes to point 948 then onto the summit of sgurr mhaoraich, were there was a small snow flurry, picked up a rough path along the ridge over minor bumps to sgurr coire nan eiricheallach and the path down to loch quoich and my next camp.rum doodle 09/05/1998

circuit from about a mile from Kinlochourn up west ridge of the still alight, smouldering and smoking slopes of Sgurr a' Mhaorich 1027m. It was burning downhill. Head north to Am Bathaich 899m and regret having not brought my crampons and axe as northern slopes have patches of steep and hard snow. Great views across to Buidhe Bheinn which I'd hoped to include in a horseshoe. Up to Thionail and heading steeply down realise I've neither the time nor the energy for Buidhe Bheinn today. Little did I know it's ascent would be 17 years away.vegibagger06/04/1996

A very enjoyable day, easy by Munros standards. Good, stalkers' path from the road up S slopes and then easily up a rocky ridge to the summit. Next, we decided to go onto the the W- Beag- top: wonderful view of Loch Hourn and a glimpse of a Golden Eagle. Then, over Am Bathaich to descend its E ridge and join another superbly engineered path all the way down.pwheeler23/05/1993
