Early morning round with Rob Wight, from Old Corrie as forecast rain later. Superb clear round, in high wind, with extensive views. 4 hours.alexmaclennan22/05/2017
On horseshoe walk from Coire-chat-achan. Though the ascent of Beinn na Caillich was often tedious, the ridge walk from there was delightful, enlivened by many species of arctic and high moorland moths flying in the warm sunshine. To the bealch was bare and gravelly, on the climb there was more vegetation and moss, so there were plenty of midges too- above 2000 ft. Grand views from summit. Surprisingly rough descent to next bealach, proved to be very slow going.pwheeler18/06/2016
On a round of the Red Cuillin. The view over to the snowy Black Cuillin was pretty unbelievable.Alex C29/04/2016
From Beinn na Caillich and then on to Beinn Dearg Bheag and back to Coire-chat-achen. Perfect weather and stunning views all around.mindlessflogger25/12/2014

From the East by chambered cairn w Jenx. Crossed to nr Old Corry and up Alt a'Choire to gain top of Beinn na Caillich. On down easy steeps to col and the steady up to Beinn Dearg Mhor summit. Even better views of Cuillin. Unpleasant descent of eroded screes to col - don't try and come up this way!nordicstar31/05/2014

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 southjern Scotland were under a blanket of cloud and rain. Right place at right time!!vegibagger28/11/1997
