After Garbh-choireachan and the Speicein. 2nd or maybe 3rd time here: these are great hills. Spent a good while poking about the summit area in search of the OS surface block (trig) but no joy. On to Fhidhleir.RHW30/05/2014

Rockhoppers trip. Circular from Culnacraig. Ben Mor Coigach ridge (738m and 743m peaks) onto Sgurr an Fhidhleir (705m). Poor visibility lifted pm. Decent weather. Snow above 650m on NW of ridge.tobywharne30/12/2013
Solo. From car park a little short of the end of the road at Culnacraig. From Culnacraig followed a path, not shown on OS 1:50,000 map, that ascended ENE. Path petered out. Ascended NW flank of Speicein nan Garbh-choireachan up a mostly grassy rake through scree and crags. Along ridge ENE to summit of Ben More Coigach, keeping to creast most of time. Bits of scrambling on the ridge of no great difficulty. On to Speicein Coinnich over one or two minor tops on the way. Continued to Sgrr an Fhidhleir and its tops.pwbellarby31/07/2013

a straightforward ascent of the two graham tops of b.m.c. and s.a.f. from small layby by loch lurggainn, followed an at times sketchy path to under the fiddlers nose and up a fairly steep gulley to another world of a view!!!stig_nest03/06/2009
Parked at Blughasary, followed track before Coigach and then Fhidhleir, before back to infamous posties path to car - too forever it seemed!nordicstar13/04/2009
Beware of returning via Postman's Path, it's poorly marked and dangerous, with unbridged streams wich may be in spate.Topographer5708/05/2008

Solo, pre-dawn ascent on geology field trip/amswanston01/05/1997
with Michelle starting much earlier than yesterdays abandoned walk. Good weather but BMC in cloud initially. Michelle with no crampons finds ice on the moorland bogs a problem. Higher up with just snow underfoot it's easier. Summit plateau cleared of cloud by time we get there and it's glorious. Panorama across sea to south is stunningvegibagger30/12/1996

Second Scottish Mountain walking holiday to Coigach. I couldn't resist the lure of this landscape and it was clear from a fine day on this mountain it was nothing like I'd seen before. From Strathkinard via Loch Lurgan, back via coastal path. Very hot and sunnypwheeler18/05/1980
