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
