Solo for my final 4 Munros. After night sleeping in hire car after visit to Gordonstoun. In from Corrie Hallie -set up my laserlight tent in glen then hammered up east slope at a good pace , wearing my trusty Walsh fells shoes. After bite stop - enjoyed a spot of level running along the high ridge linking the various tops - an amazing place to be running solo - until with a sense of mixed feelings arrived at the summit of Beinn Tarsuin -my last Munro-sat for a long time enjoying the views and sense of peace all around. Then doubled back and out for tops before down and a tough big rough energy sapping ascent to add Corbett of Creag Rainich to make a good proper long day of it and down in the evening to tent, and food and deep sleep- until awoke feeling strangely cold to find snow covering the tent(in May)Chris Pearson02/05/2009

From Sgurr Ban descended to Loch a Bhrisidh where I saw a dipper. Ascended south ridge to the top. As I needed to walk out via Loch a Bhraoin I traversed the slabby eastern flanks of Chlaidheimh and Sgurr Ban back to Meallan an Laoigh where you can descend to the valley floor. Lots of juniper on these slabby flanks.mindlessflogger24/12/2004

On Shenavall- Achneigie- Beinn a'Chlaidheimh- Sgurr Ban- Mullach Coire Mhic Fhearchair- Beinn Tarsuinn- Shenavall circuit, with brother Pete. Going via Achneige added 2 miles but gave us time to assess the showery weather, then we had a nice ridge, Creag Ghlas, to ascend and didn't have to cross that larachantivorous bog on the way up.pwheeler24/05/2000

After camping at Loch Glascarnoch. With three friends. My car was positioned where A832 road crosses Dundonnell River. We left the road near Loch a Bhraoin at 06:35. We walked along path beside Loch a Braoin, passing Lochivraon bothy. Then to Bealch na Croise and col between Beinn Tarsuinn and Meall Garbh. Left rucksacks at the col and ascended to Beinn Tarsuinn and back. Skirted Meall Garbh on NW side and on to Mullach Coire Mhic Fhearchair. Continued to Sgrr Bn and Beinn a Chlaidheimh. Some argument about the best line to avoid cliffs. The lower slopes were very wet. Crossed Abhainn Loch an Nid to track. We followed the track to somewhere near Lochain Dubh where we struck cross-country to reach my car. The weather was good.pwbellarby15/08/1993
