From Inchnadamph, very enjoyable approach over stony north top, returned via Bone Caves and road walk down A837rjf3508/08/2019
Starting from tent well up R. Oykel. Crossed river (no bridge despite what map shows)to Meall a Bhragaid (Gt), on to main top Breabag (C), on n to Breabag N top (Gt), all this by dead reckoning in cloud. Then across the Oykel valley after a tricky descent and up the other side in improving weather to Meall an Aonaich (Gt) and back down to tentdickscroop30/07/2019
On the way to Durness. Standard route from the west. Minor scramble up slabs on the way up, took a slightly more northerly line on descent.Owen B19/04/2019
With K directly from Beinn a Fhuarain to the west. Not a good route - ascent challenging on loose scree, even to North of main scree slope. Got turned around in mist and somehow descended to S instead of N - very chastening. Returned to Bone Caves car park.Ashley25/10/2018
With Sue from the Bone Caves carpark up narrowing glen to strike up hillside on a very faint path then N to summit. Good views all round. Returned to explore caves.Frank02/09/2018

From car park on A837 by salmon hatchery at bottom of the Allt nam Uamh glen. Very interesting valley, with caves and springs. Sunny intervals, but very windy on plateau. With JK, KM and NP.Man of Kernow130/09/2012
Inchadamph - Conival - Ben More Assynt - S Top - Corbett Top - Breabag - valley of Allt nan Uamh to car park where met family waiting. Breabag is not up to much to be quite frank! Still good, but not same quality as other hills in this area. Conival and Ben More Assynt are epic. The ridge to Munro Top is quite narrow and exposed. With GW & RW to Ben More & then alone from there.AGWilliamson20/09/2012
From the bone caves car park on A837 with J. Quick look in the caves & amused ourselves by spotting the where the burn disappears into & reappears from its underground passage. Continued E up to the plateau & then turned S for the summit where an icy wind left J very cold. Back by the same route with great views across to Canisp, Suilven, etc.NotReallyABagger07/09/2012

Solo. In morning I set off along path beside Allt nan Uamh. There is now parking space and a well made path up to the caves and round in a loop. I walked up to the caves bones of brown bear, wolf, artic fox etc had been found there. I ascended to summit of Breabag. Upper slopes of Breabag are a limestone meadow. Did Ben Hee in afternoon.pwbellarby29/06/1997

On path to caves on Inchnadamph estate. Sudden hush as stream disappeared in limestone. Dry stream bed led up to heathery slopes to large scree and a long slog to top. 12.40.arranc24/05/1995
Ben More Assynt round from Inchnadaph: Conival to Breabag with T who came around the corner at the start.Eddie03/09/1993
Did this after two munros north of it. The wind was howling through a gully near the summit while the land around it was in completely still air. 24 years later, I've never forgotten that amazing occurrence.IanHHill28/05/1992
