Allt Claonaidh difficult to cross after a lot of rain in the last month! Quite a tricky walk in but an interesting hill.twg2708/09/2017
From the small car park at 113, across tussocks ground and then on to rough path on s side of Allt Claonaidh. Easy to cross after dry month and took rising traverse onto main east ridge. Great summit views.Campbell Singer16/05/2017
Did not choose a good day for this one. Clag!NormanW13/05/2017
At last a chance to climb this hill on a good day. Parking not easy as previously reported but squeezed in by the bridge. The river was low, stepping stones and path up the burn to high point then up to ridge. Full circuit of all tops on a sparkling day.nordicstar20/08/2016

From bridge at SE end of Loch Lurgainn. Path starts about 100m E of bridge leads to swing gate through a deer fence. Continued across river and east side of the fence then up through thick vegatation to Cioch. Thereafter much easier. Rain set in on the way back.Topographer5708/08/2013
Solo. From about the 113m point on the road to Achiltibuie. I thought this would be a good place to start as there might be difficulty crossing the burn flowing into Loch Lurgainn. Found a faint path with some indication of use so followed this. It went SW before swinging NW. It was rather wet. I wanted to go up beside Allt Claonaidh and was surprised to find a path there. This was not marked on my map and had much more evidence of use. Crossing of Allt Claonaidh looked difficult, but I found it possible to cross both branches above the point where two branches of the burn join. Went up to col between Cioch Beinn an Eoin & Beinn an Eoin and so to the summit. Retraced my steps but continued on path beside Allt Claonaidh to reach road. Where the path crossed the burn flowing into Loch Lurgainn boulders had been placed in the bed of the burn so there was no difficulty in crossing the burn. The path met the road at a passing place although start of the path is not very obvious.pwbellarby30/07/2013
