Rivers/streams in spate. Approached from south NH 0406 6235. Good deer trod helps with initial climb from NH 04141 62477. Unable to cross Allt Chnaimhean until lochan at NH 0459 6502 - good pinch point between rock - very easy stride.carole engel05/09/2019
From Incheril, tried to cycle up Slioch path but gave up and walked after first km. Up via a steep narrow gully on SE side of waterfall, where I used and recommend katoohlas. Back over Ghobhar and NW side of Chnaimhean. Crossed paths with two small herds of feral goats.Topographer5717/05/2019

From Incheril to the waterfall then up over steep rough ground before continuing over easy gnarly rocks and grass to the summit. Amazing views of Slioch from just beyond the summit. Returned via Meallan Gobhar.Peterb14/02/2017
Incheril cp. very midgy! Along the Slioch path and steeply up the burn line to falls. Hard at first but improves. Above fall steep through reasonable ground to good viewpoint. Line back to Alt Chnaimhean which gives a complex but good descent. Deer tracks lead almost to cemetery.nordicstar18/08/2016
Impressive route up by the falls then any easy walk back across plateau and a deer path down to CP.jenx18/08/2016
Followed fence line from Incheril car park. Up S side of waterfall cos less crags that side - steep. Lots of feral goats. Through six foot + bracken on way back.rogreeves06/07/2016

From Incheril car park with 1056Jim.Fothergill19/04/2016
From the track leading to the Heights of Kinlochewe. There is a rough track leaving the main track at NH 06436 63170 which is somewhat circuitous but is of help when trying to get down in the almost dark as I did. Should have started earlier.nicolajane13/12/2015
From Incheril. Apparently the name means Mountain of Pissing. Probably because of the waterfall that you pass on the way up.ngthack05/07/2015
From Incheril. Got involved in a bit of scrambling and hoped would not have to reverse any oc my steps. Grand views all the way, despite (or maybe because of) frequent showers.Martin R19/05/2015

During a May week in Badachro on a sunny & warm day with J, Martin66, JC & the Harts starting at Incheril. Followed the track towards the Kinlochewe River & just before reaching it, climbed up alongside the first major sidestream. On reaching flatter ground, headed across to Meallan Ghobhar & then skirted the two lochs to the W over roughish ground to the summit of Binn a'Mhuinidh. Grand views of Torridon & Slioch. Back by the same route.NotReallyABagger09/05/2013

Parked at Incheril. 1/2 mile on track before striking directly up to a gap in crags on visible horizon. Long tramp over lush wet deer grass for 1/2 mile and struck a route to hills on horizon 1 1/2 miles away. Onto firmer grass slopes through boulders over large summit area to top at 13.45. Large lichen covered stones made up a substantial 4' cairn.arranc12/07/2006
