An afternoon walk after Beinn Dearg Mhor in the morning where the cloud had lifted but still down here and my compass broken! Started on path from radio mast Ok. When it ran out used wind direction to get me onto summit ridge and followed it along to what looked like the summit cairn. Photo here shows that it was though there were a couple of other cairns about. Rather less good 'wind' navigating on way back and hit road a good mile north of where I should have been - perhaps wind direction moved or I misjudged the 180 degree turn! But I made it.dickscroop03/06/2018
Final peak of the day. Good views, sun just breaking through clouds. Descended along the long ridge NE ish to coast and just sat on the beach enjoying the sunshine and views. Perfect. Company: Soloiandesbottes10/05/2018

After driving up track with Jon Glew & Iain Gallagher summiting Beinn na Seamraig, approached from Bealach na Cruinn-leum. After main summit cairn went to cairn 400 ENE as it looked about same height or higher. Aparently it is not. Then went on to Beinn Beag.SteveSmith30/04/2017
From Beinn na Seamraig over rough heathery ground. Small cairn close to summit rock. Wandered across to a cairn c400m ENE, most likely lower but not much in it.jonglew30/04/2017

From the road to Beinn Bheag and then to summit via a grassy gulley. Very windy from the NW, but the summit was below the cloud base so we enjoyed views from the top. The precambrian Torridonian sandstone gives this hill a rugged mini mountain feel with large areas of glaciated slabs on its north side, but is different to the mountains of the mainland Torridonian area. The circuit including Sgurr na Coinich from Kylerhea looks good value, but there is so much to do in the area.mindlessflogger17/02/2015
