From Sgurr na Coinnich. Pacing and rock-to-rock compass work required but sheltered from wind and nice terrain. Retraced steps over Sgurr na Coinnich and battled downhill against the wind to Bealach Udal. Would probably be a lovely walk in better weather. 2 hours 40 mins. Considered climbing Ben Aslak but decided to save it for a better day and had a superb pizza at Cafesia in Broadford instead.Wycombe Wanderer28/03/2019
With Eilidh and LunaBigNick14/10/2018
From the Kylerhea Wildlife viewing car park. You might see more on the hill, such as the Goldie tucking into a newly dead deer. The start of the walk is not nice, because of steep, deep vegetables (best done in winter?) but it soon improves to dry tundra on Beinn Bhuidhe, then easy grass to Bealach nam Mulachag, from where there's a good, steep path up the scree and grass to the summit. Fabulous views.Gill16/07/2018

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

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 up to this Graham from Kylerhea, just a slog over heather and scree, not helped by low cloud, persistent rain and then snow, all the way to the summit. A cold, wet day, but it was great!jonglew17/05/2012

from Coinnich. Steeply down through boulders to get view of bealach as mist cleared. Skye Bridge and Kyleakin. To the right over scree then a clamber into mist on green steeply rising slopes of grass and heather. Around first prow to top at 11.55. No view - mist. An enormous cairn. Hot chocolate in Beinn na Caillich café, but still had to pay for it!arranc12/05/2007

on rail and walking trip with dad to Kyle and then up to Thurso. This was his first big hike at age 74 and his legs weren't in trim and he stopped about 150m elevation short of the top and sat while I summitted. Strange words spelt out in stones on summit, 42GDORM L.COYCIGS Most odd.vegibagger26/11/1997
