Cycled up to Loch Sealga then intermittent tracks along loch and up past Loch Toll to col, then BDM and BDB. Steep sections higher up require care. Cycling did save time thanks to recent pothole filling.Topographer5713/05/2019
From Carnmore via Lochan na Bearta after hills around Beinn a' Chaisgein Mor, as on first ascent.mae211/05/2019
With: hb; From Shenevall, across two very low rivers & very dry bog (!) to Larachantivore. Slanted and zig-zagged to gain S corrie then up to the E top. Along ridge to main summit and airy top. Descended to bealach then up Beinn Dearg Bheag and N top. Descended back to bealach then down to Loch Toll an Lochain down to path by Loch na Sealga for return to Shenevall.Ian Baines05/06/2018

From Gruinard. No bike hire in Ullapool, so had to walk. Tough slog up up Loh Toll an Lochain, veered slightly too far west and had to contour under crags. Also missed the faint path from the Mor/Beag col to the summit, it's on the north side. Stunning views of An Teallach, quite hazy south. Summit area is fantastic.Owen B26/09/2017
From BD Bheag.MichaelF18/07/2017
Via Shenavall, the 2 river crossings were easy without need to wade, the bog in between the 2 rivers got me though. Up to the SE ridge scramble on the left of the approach coire, mentioned in passing in the Corbetts book. This was much better than expected, probably grade 3, with absorbing route finding. Felt quite adventurous. Descent from the Mor Beag col. A fine hill.David Bell29/05/2017

Beinn Dearg Bheag and Beinn Dearg Mor from Gruinard on overnight backpack. Long walk in and along Loch na Sealga, ascent to Loch Toll an Lochain then beallach between the two tops. Beinn Dearg Bheag then Beinn Dearg Mor, straightforward but no views. Rivers high on walk in and rain for much of route. Also visited spectacular summit c70m away from summit cairn.RobertP08/07/2016

MC JC. With Beinn Dearg Bheag. Wandered in from Coirrie Hallie on evening of 29 MAy where at the car it was readin 29 degrees at 7 pm. Camped beyond Shenavall over the river beside a large patch of flowering gorse. Met people coming out from Fisherfield who were staggering with dehydration! Ascended straight up SE ridge. Steep and hot. Great setting. Great cliffs and ridges. Steep descent and up the Bheag. Direct descent to tiny lochan between the two peaks. Had a paddle. 2.5h out to car in 30 deg heat.Martin6630/05/2009

With Dave Roeder. Fr Shenavall (16:00) forded 2 rivers and up to summit. Continued to Beinn Dearg Bheag. Weather OK. River crossing seemed shallower on way back - perhaps below confluence. Back to bothy 21:30. Weather improving with good views laterdbb04/07/2002

Beautiful pair with the Beag. Bagged on a through walk from Poolewe.gman09/09/1999
From Shenaval bothy. Off at 7.30. In boots with one sock to cross both rivers - water up to calf height. Off on rising traverse over trackless tussock, swamp, heather and boulders. Over 2 or 3 red rock runs and clamber straight up on all fours to a rocky outcrop. Entered corrie on W side. Small descent past a snow patch and uphill on sandstone slab covered grass slope to top. 11.05. Magnificent spot. Eagle hovered with 8' wings then stooped down the rock face out of sight by tucking its wings back. Stupendous. to B D B.arranc25/05/1995
Corbett bagging: Beinn Dearg Mor and Beinn Dearg Bheag RHW08/04/1994
Party of 5. Spent the night in survival bags at the col between Beinn Dearg Bheag and Beinn Dearg Mòr. Set off at 05:30 and reached the summit of Beinn Dearg Mòr at 06:15. We had thought of possibly descending the east ridge but because of the conditions we decided to go back to the col. We had thought of crossing over An Teallach to reach Dundonnell, but because of the low cloud and generally damp conditions we decided to walk out to our starting point near Carn na h-Aire. Also didnít fancy crossing the Abhainn Srath na Sealga which is notorious for causing problems. Descended to Loch Toll an Lochain and down to the path beside Loch na Sealga. Retraced our steps of the day before. Saw a black throated diver.pwbellarby20/06/1993
