The bridge at Badintagairt is now mangled, submerged and unusable. River too deep to cross at this point but managed to wade (knee to thigh deep) 3 km down the glen, from a small parking spot just below Glencassley castle. Trickier on return as the ground thawed; certainly wouldn't be possible in spate.AndyS19/11/2018
From Badintagairt. Swing footbridge rocks but it's Ok. Animal paths on north side of Croick Burn. Annoying deer fence at 300m. A half hour dose of fog and rain passed through on the summit plateau, otherwise ok.Topographer5717/07/2018
A straight line from An Stuc to the west. The cliffs shown on the west side of the hill do not exist. Then went north-west to Meall a'Bhuirich. Quite a few deers and I got quite close to some that were in the peat hags before they saw me.Alan Moore01/06/2018
Parked at Badintagairt. Through deer enclosure and over good swing bridge and up Croick burn, over deer fence and on to summit helped by frozen ground underfoot. Good views. Back same way.Coinneach18/03/2018
2 of 3: From Badintagairt Farm.ChrisR17/08/2017
Parked at derelict farmhouse. Badintagairt. Footbridge a bit wobbly but should last a while yet, hopefully, since the river is too deep to wade across and the nearest alternative bridge is a long way away. A boggy slog to the summit, initially by Croik Burn, rewarded by great views west to Suilven, etc.AndrewFinnimore07/01/2017
Parked by the old deserted farm of Badintagairt. Fun on the dodgy suspensiin bridge then a squelch to the top. Best take the subsidiary summit head on as the walking off that line is poor.nordicstar24/07/2016
A bit squelchy.jenx24/07/2016
From Badintagairt - the going not too bad along the Croich Burn.Chris Peart17/06/2016
A mighty squelch with terrific views all round Coigach and Assynt. Worth the struggle. Nice swinging bridge over river.Martin R30/05/2014
Parked at Badintagairt in Glen Cassley (NC 428103). Walked over to the footbridge, round the ox-bow lake and then headed on a compass bearing straight for the top. The only minor obstacle was an easily-climbed deer fence below the steep slope up to point 521. Glorious snow-covered views of the mountains of the north, in bright sunshine. Then back to the car to go up Beinn Sgeireach.martin_hall30/03/2013
Parked at Badintagairt. Through yard, gate and home paddock, over the suspension bridge, detour around a detached oxbow and over swampy ground to a crude stile over deer fence. Steady plod uphill through new mixed plantings over a second deer fence at 1,000'. More rough heathery plod to gain respite on tundra patches with stones on flat top of first bump. A drop to the foot of the final rise, encountering a quaker and to top at 12.15.arranc23/07/2008
Trig revisit. Grass & rock summit, partly formed low stone shelter. Fine view, especially W to Cul Mor & Suilven. From ENE, Badintagart, wobbly suspension bridge over river, round N end of oxbow lake, stile then endless spongy ascent.RHW04/05/2008
Out and back from Glencassley castle.Eddie08/07/2006
dullish boggy climb, exceptional views to Hope, Morvern, Wyvis, Teallach, Coigach - all the North. Badintagart, FB 428099, direct route over NE top to summit RHW07/05/2001
