9 degrees at Bealach Udal, cloud base approx. 1200', ferocious SSW wind. Headed almost due north, picked up a faint ATV track most of way to ridge in thick mist. Nice tail wind became a vicious side wind to lochan and on to summit. Easier ascent than expected. On to Beinn Na Caillich.Wycombe Wanderer28/03/2019

A walk over the two Grahams on a wet afternoon after a morning drive up from Bridge of Orchy. Mainly out of the cloud though. Beinn na caillich rather more interesting than Sgurr na Coinich.dickscroop22/09/2017

With Martin66, Otis & J on a very windy & wet afternoon from the highpoint on the road over Bealach Udal. Picked our way over rough ground on a compass bearing & just about got blown off the summit. Martin66 & Otis tried descending to the bealach below Beinn na Caillich but Otis got lifted off his feet, so it was a retreat back to the car. An hour later, sitting in the cafe in Kyle, the cloud & rain blew off the peaks & the sun came out...NotReallyABagger31/12/2013

Ascended from road to Kylerhea over rough but not challenging ground. Top in some snow. Great views to Skye Bridge, Cuillin and Knoydart.quadbarrel12/04/2013
W Jenx from road col. Steep up Coinnich and via frozen tarn. Snow and sun to trig/cairn. Down far side to col and scramble easy up Caillich. Down same then Western traverse inc minor 610m tops and to road. Easier it seemed than Fempsters suggestion of Easyern traverse, boulders and scree.nordicstar01/01/2013
Hideous midgey roadside camp with Darren at Bealach Udal road top hoping for some breeze -to no avail. Then a drizzly very rough, bog & heather ascent and linked to Beinn na Caillich. Return contoured across east flank of Coinnich -all rough and damp. To Broadford youth hostel to dry out and refuel.Then a lovely dry circuit around Beinn na Caillich.Chris Pearson19/07/2012
With Mrs G. No paths for this mountain so a slog over heather and scree. Not helped on this visit by persistent rain, snow and low cloud. We made the ascent from Kylerhea to Beinn na Caillich and then cut acros to Sgurr na Coinnich, not too easy in low visibility. Descent was to the Bealach Udal and return on the road.jonglew17/05/2012
