From Cnoc a' Bhaid-rallaich. Aimed for point 381 but ended up a bit to the left. After four days of heavy rain finding a non-quagmire route through the peat hags took a little time. Hit clag and a sharp shower on the ascent and ended up too far north, but once on the horseshoe sandstone summit ridge/plateau the going was much better. Carried on west a little way off the summit then dropped to the south through steep grass and heather aiming for the gap between the two lochs. Unfortunately the tiny stream between the lochs had burst its banks and was a fast flowing torrent, necessitating a detour around the back of the loch. Then over the shoulder and steeply south to the track and back to the road end. 779th Marilyn = half way point.... will never do them all sadly.Owen B31/08/2019
From Badralloch, via coast path and Loch na h-Uidhe. Then to Cnoc a' Bhad-raillaich.IanHHill16/07/2019

Very shapely hill when seen across Little Loch Broom from the W. From Badrallach took track W for a while then struck off up hillside past lochans to col between two Marilyns. Beinn Ghobhlach done first. Windshelter and cairns on summit.Aye Jimmy22/10/2007
With a friend. From short of Badrallach near standing stone. We struck up the hillside to reach the summit of Cnoc a Bhaid-rallaich. It was cold in a strong wind. Descended to the east end of Loch a' Bhealaich and climbed up to the summit of Beinn Ghobhlach. Descended, crossing the burn below Loch a' Bhealaich and across and up cliffs above Loch na Coireig. We passed a small lochan and then descended to Badrallach.pwbellarby22/05/2007
Parked at Badrallach. Very good path led along coast at about 200' asl. Sea an incredible post card Mediterranean blue. Uphill on dryish moor in one foot steps to visible horizon and down to big loch. Passed round W side, over outlet and over wet moor to prow of hill. Occasional bits of path made by deer onto true ridge just before last sandstone summit cone. 12.55. SMC special hill for obvious reasons. to Rallaich.arranc29/06/2005
With Shaky from Badrallach. On a cloudy day, climbed more or less straight up the slope to the summit of Cnoc a'Bhaid-rallaich for a good view. Then made our way over to Beinn Ghobhlach by Loch a'Bhealaich for an even better view. Descended W for a short way & then aimed for the gap between Loch na h-Uidhe & Loch na Coireig over rough heathery ground. Up to the cairn at pt. 338m & then down to join the track above Little Loch Broom back to the start.NotReallyABagger01/05/2005
From Badralloch. Paths wind their way round natural routes. The summit is great as is the spur N of the corrie. With my brother, who- perhaps to be provocative or just unpredictable- put this as his favourite Ma in Scotland. The view is everything you could hope for from a west coast hill.pwheeler31/05/2004
