With Sunny, Maol Chean-dearg, Sgorr Ruadh & Beinn Liath Mhor. Couldn't cross the river, had to go round the loch.Huwel06/06/2020
With: hb; From Achnashellach Stn, up the Coire Lair path to the bealach then steeply west and the south east to the narrow summit of Sgorr Ruadh. We dropped south east to cross the wide and complex Bealach Mor in order to gain the path up Creag Mainnricheean, then over Mainreachan Buttress to the summit of Fuar Tholl. The River Lair was in spate so we dropped south west to Carn Eididh then southeast to the railway level crossing before walking back along the road to the start.Ian Baines27/05/2019

2nd munro of day. Much easier than 1st. Reaching summit easy but path down took a bit of finding and descent took longer than it looked. Slept on island in Loch Maree with wonderful views of Slioch. Indebted to Norman and Elspeth for all the paddling.dave neilson05/07/2018

From the car park on the A 890 at Achnashellach at NH 00523 88360. Took the good path up Coire Earba, and branch path up to Bhealach Mhoir.

2nd of 2. Got lost a bit in the mist and had a convoluted journey off the first Munro. Eventually sorted myself out at the belach before ascending to summit. Not great off this either until you get to the stalker path near the Corbett, then it's a doddle. 19.4km, 1530m, 8hr.bowzi13/10/2013
