Done with GHC in lovely warm weather. Great views, great hill.Play2End02/06/2017
With Rob Wight on an enjoyable clear Garbh Bhein and Belig traverse. Some easy scrambling on both ascents.6 hours.alexmaclennan23/05/2017
Last Graham, Corbett and Munro: ascended Belig via SE ridge; Garbh Bheinn via Bealach na Beiste and Bla Bheinn via Clach Glas. Fantastic day in the Cuillin Hills with Alasdair Raffe and Ewan Lyons (thanks to Ewan for leading the tricky sections)raffemeister07/05/2017
On a Garbh-bheinn, Belig, Glas Bheinn Mhor day from the Loch Ainort side. From Garbh-bheinn on the way down to Bealach na Beiste I decided against the obvious gully as a way up and made a way up through bluffs and boulders on the breast SE of the gully. Never any problem, but it was a relief to finish up on a nice SW arete (easy, grassy) high up. I decided on the N ridge for descent, a delight and easy underfoot, though it had to be turned at a steep rough (rock?) section by going into upper Coire Choinnich. This led nicely to the foot of Glas Bheinn Mhor S ridge. More marvelous views; lots of good arctic moths on Belig and Garbh-bheinn, too, in the sunshine.pwheeler14/06/2016

Parking off main road at minor rd 542268. Nice view of pod of Minke whale. Use small burn opposite to make way onto hill, aiming for col between Belig and Glas Bheinn Mhor. Rough going to 200m then eases up. Took the NE ridge of Belig to gain summit with superb views in great weather. Down the NNW ridge to 500m then cut back into corrie and along wall to summit of second Marilyn. Grand half day trip.nordicstar11/06/2015
