From Strollamus. Beinn Dearg Mhor,Beinn na Caillich & Creag Strollamus.duchally21/06/2019
Parked at Old Corry road end, and followed will-othe-wisp paths to the start of the boulder field and more or less straight up. Orange-tipped fritillaries for company, and many spring flowers and orchids. Outstanding panoramic views from the summit. Onwards to BDM....Nick Down129/05/2019
Anti-clockwise circuit from the road end at Old Corry. On own.MorecambeMonkey24/05/2019

From Beinn Dearg Mhor via enjoyable ridge, wind dropped a bit. Ascent easier than the last one. Tedious descent through asteroid field but had plenty of time to take it easy. As expected, a fine walk - reminiscent of the Paps of Jura. 3.75 hours.Wycombe Wanderer24/03/2019
Beinn na Caillich and Beinn Dearg Mhor and finish over Beinn Dearg Bheag. A fine day with the promised thunder storms not materialising. Straightforward walk from road to Blabhendickscroop01/06/2018

With Matt, Russel & LunaBigNick29/01/2017
Parked at Coire-chat-achan for the horseshoe walk. A path led to a spring where Scotch Argus butterflies were flying. Then boulders and bits inbetween, sometimes trodden in a desperate attempt to avoid boulders. In a way, skipping from one boulder to the next, finding the best way up, was quite absorbing, but it was a relief when the slope relented and gravel and turf was encountered on this featureless (no sense of any corrie, gully or ridge) slope. Marvelous view of 2 eagles circling up the corrie when I went over to look at the NE ridge. Enormous distance views on a very sunny day.pwheeler18/06/2016
High point of what turned out to be the best walk I've done in quite some time. 3 HuMPs on a circular route from Broadford with snow and sunshine at its best.Alex C29/04/2016
1 of 3: From B8083 at bend in road.ChrisR18/08/2015
Solo. From Old Corry; near enough direct line taken to summit. Wind very strong, had to abandon ideas of Beinn Dearg Mhor & Bheag. Returned down scree slope on south flank after starting the traverse to Mhor.jonglew15/05/2015
Parked at Coire-chat-achan for the horse shoe walk. Headed direct up the boulders to the top. This was tough going and Dave's underpants were split asunder!. Saw a stoat too. The weather was perfect, no wind, no cloud and snow down to 400m. Met Blaze the abseiling boarder colley on the top (and owner).mindlessflogger25/12/2014

From the East by chambered cairn w Jenx. Crossed to nr Old Corry and up Alt a'Choire (not the direct line) and flanked up the NE slopes to gain height before tackling boulder field, great scrambling. Finished Scottish P600's, completed circuit of the hills. Superb day all round, views immense. Save this one for good weather!nordicstar31/05/2014

A two separate walk day. am. midgy wet rough slog up the other hill with the same name above Bealach Udal (from a hideous midgey camp)then after booking into Broadford YH & eating & shower a fast romp around the horseshoe with Darren in mercifully now dry improving weather although windy afternoon.Nice and steep.Chris Pearson19/07/2012
Solo. Walked from Broadford along Elgol road and then path to Coire-chat-achan. Path starts just before sharp bend in road (not according to map). Then steeply up to summit of Beinn na Caillich. Descended down NE ridge with no difficulties. Bit of a tedious walk past Lochain Beinn na Callich to the road due to underfoot conditions.pwbellarby16/07/2012

Trig revisit. Great hill, wonderful view at sunrise - quick bag before the Pabay boat. From E (tarmac road s/p Old Corry), grass at first, keeping R of massive gabbro outcrop, then slopes mostly covered with granite boulders - careful footwork on descent.RHW30/09/2007
Parked a mile before tarred lane to Coire-chat-achan. To end of road on heather runs between boulders made of gabbro. To boulder field, clambering up, with stops every 20 minutes to check height. Path higher up Clear views of nearest hills. Slope eased to grass slopes and to top at 10.30. Massive pile of stones - biggest I've seen since Tinto. to B D Mhor.arranc13/05/2007

Date is first visit. RHW26/05/1998
rail and walking trip with dad to Kyle, then up to Thurso. First big hike at age 74 on 26th and his legs weren't in trim and he stopped about 150m elevation short of the top of the Kyleakin Beinn na Caillich. Today two days later this time his legs were in trim. early shuttle bus across the bridge for 7.50 post bus from Kyleakin. Walking from Broadford by 8.15, glorious day anticlockwise circuit over Beinn na Caillich and Beinn Dearg Mhor and Beinn Dearg Beag, in sunshine while the whole of England and southern Scotland were under a blanket of cloud and rain. Right place at right time!!vegibagger28/11/1997
