Long circuit from car park at end of road in Glen Affric. Carn Glas Iochdarach - Carn a'Choire Ghairbh - Aonach Shasuinn - Carn nan Coireachan Cruaidh - Cnap na Stri. Bright, snow above 600m (quite deep in places) with occasional spindrift. Dark on final summit so interesting descent, although later the moon was exceptionally bright, caating strong shadows. Outstanding 360 degree views of snow-covered mountains. Nearly 11h in total.RobertP05/11/2017

With Mora from Glen Affric car park.BLACKHILL14/05/2017
A great walk from Cougie (parking by the bridge). Easy track through beautiful pines and then cleared forestry, through the gate, then up an ATV track and easy boggy stuff to Druim a'Choilich. After that, it's a glorious easy stroll mainly on tundra and grass, over the bumpy ridge to Carn nan Coireachan Cruaidh, then slightly down and up to Aonach Shasuinn. The views are fabulous and the going easy, so it's no hardship to go back the same way. Possibly the best side of this hill, judging by the tedious appearance of the Allt Garbh route?Gill30/10/2016
Long drizzling and blustery ridgewalk from the Glen Affric carpark. Tops clear of cloud.alexmaclennan21/06/2016
Round of AS and CCG from Glen Affric.Topographer5712/05/2016
Glorious walk on a perfect day from road end in Affric with J. Along the glen then on track S following Allt Garbh leaving it to climb curving NW ridge of Aonach Shasuinn. Then over An Elric trending NW to col at Cadha Riabhach - a very atmospheric spot surrounded by high snow capped Munros. Up over Carn a' Choire Ghairbh, along to col dropping diagonally to rejoin outward path. Recommended!NotReallyABagger14/05/2015

carn a choire ghairbh and aonach shasuinn from end of public road.robertphillips30/03/2013
Round of Shasuinn and Coire Ghairbh from Affric. Route in SMC book now incorrect, and outward too! Follow path to Cougie from bridge at Alt Garbh (no crossing!) and high track - use to cut into S face of Shasuinn. Steep to top and hill circuit to Coire Ghairbh in stormy wet weather w Jenx and Briain K.nordicstar28/08/2012

From Carn a'Choire Ghairbh. On a Corbetts day surrounded by Munros, Tigh Mor na Seilge, a Munros top was the best summit. Over An Elric to this Corbett was all enjoyable. With the cloud base at best ca. 3100 ft today,Corbetts were a good choice,but I think the Munros are a better bet in this area, given clear weather.pwheeler29/05/2010

Circuit of this and Carn a'choire Ghairbh, two Corbetts. Quite a long walk.Aye Jimmy30/05/2001
Solo. Left road end in Glen Affric and walked on forest track WSW. After crossing Allt Garbh and a short distance beyond took footpath signed by a Scottish Rights of Way signpost. Kept to the west of Allt Garbh on deer tracks and open ground quite icy. Where the track from Cougie crosses the burn, I joined that track. The track is wide enough for vehicles, and there was evidence of recent use. Followed the track to its end where there is a small hut. Snow was now lying quite extensively. I went to the outfall of Loch an Sgùid, going a short distance downstream on Allt Garbh, before finding a place to cross. Joined the ridge falling N (then NE) off the W top of Aonach Shasuinn, kicking steps. Reached main top and then both tops of Cairn nan Coireachan Cruaidh. Followed the glen of Allt Fraoch-choire to lochan (bigger than shown on map!) Descended through forest in the dark.pwbellarby07/12/1996
