A rough and very wet approach but worth it for the views from the ridge.Peterb20/09/2019
From road at SE end of Loch Lurgainn, circuit then included Sgorr Tuath.IanHHill15/07/2019
Path from road better than expected (but would be boggy if it had been wet). Straightforward access / ascent.willyross22/04/2019
A late start to miss the worst of the wind in the forecast. Found room to get off the road and the passing place by the bridge. no problems except picked a far too steep line up Cioch Beinn an Eoin. came down by a much better line further west. in poor weather and with a late start just did the main top.dickscroop05/04/2019
With: hb; From roadside CP, used access gate & crossed to Feur Loch then up Allt Claonaidh for 0.5km before slanting to bealach SW of the Cioch. Followed ridge to Beinn an Eoin over Sgorr Deas & down to lochans.Ian Baines02/06/2018
Fantastic circuit of the Coigach peaks from parking area near Culnacraig in bright sunny conditions, breezy. Speicein nan Garbh-choireachan, Ben More Coigach, Speicein Coinnich, Beinn Tarsuinn, steep descent then climb and traverse to Sgorr Tuath, Beinn an Eoin, Sgurr an Fhidhleir, Beinn nan Caorach North Top (camped overnight), Beinn nan Caorach, Conmheall.RobertP26/05/2018
From Ben More Coigach. The gully down to Lochan Tuath below Sgurr an Fhidleir was straightforward with great views to the cliffs and around the valley. No problems getting across the loch outlet or over the deer fence (there is a pseudo stile about 200 metres from the Lochan Tuath outlet). Slog up and down Beinn an Eoin was tough. The ravine below (west of) point 525 looked impassable, so it was up through steep heather and shuffling over and around large rock outcrops. Slow going.Owen B28/09/2017
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
With Peter Cottam, taking in Sgorr Tuath. Allt Claonaidh in spate. Followed S side until just after the fork at 220m, then N to ridge. Galltywenallt23/08/2017
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

round of 3 grahams bae, saf,bmcrobertphillips24/05/2014
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

Park near grit stone dump. Around swampy lake to climb deer fence blocking the way across nasty area of replanting with square holes, soil piles, rocks, hidden boulders streamlets, the lot.
