From SW, nice ascent with outstanding views after a period of sustained dry weather.RobertP29/04/2019
From Torosay via road to the masts and Dun da Ghaoithe. The 6m rock step near the summit is in a small gulley and the ascent was straightforward in dry conditions. Descended to Torness via Beinn Bhearnach and Coire man Each.Winterfloodian29/05/2018

A traverse including Sgurr Dearg, Meinnir nam Fiadh, Dun da Ghaoithe, Beinn Thunacaraidh and Beinn Mheadhain and diagonal traverse NE to road.Detoured south around bad step coming off Beinn Dearg, could not see a line from above, might have been more obvious from below. Final descent line had much poor ground, tussocks etc, would not really recommend it, there must be a better way. This apart, a good day.dickscroop14/04/2017
Bus from ferry and climb from south, easy if steep grassy climb, route off to north has bad decent if clag and lack of route knowledge. Scree to right a safer route.TheWicken17/01/2017
Did Dun da Ghaoithe via the track then followed the ridge across to Sgurr Dearg. Rock step just below the summit was fairly easily negotiated. Descended the same way.davidpettit8428/12/2016
Easy climb up towards waterfall then Beinn Bhearnach and finally Sgurr Dearg in damp and windy conditions.Dugswell202/06/2015

During a New Year week in Tobermory, with Martin66, JC, Shaky & the Hunts. Parked just inside the forestry on A849 at NM663316, walked to edge of forestry & then slogged up the SW slopes of Beinn Bhearnach & then N to Sgurr Dearg. Descended the long E/SE ridge (Beinn Bheag) to vary the descent & then across back underneath Beinn Bhearnach to rejoin the outward route. Like most Mull Grahams, a good hill once the initial rough slogging is out of the way.NotReallyABagger30/12/2010

dull lower slopes, decent summit, fine spacious view. Torness 648327, direct line RHW29/04/2000
Solo trip. My father died this morning, though I didn't find out till next day.Invicta1413/10/1999
After staying night in Oban. Solo. I took the 10:00 ferry to Craignure. There was no service bus, but I persuaded the driver of a tour coach to take me to Torness. Near bend of road there is a new track through forest, neither of which was marked on my map. I followed the track, hoping it would take me through the forest, but it ended in the middle. The forest was young, but it had rained heavily in the night, so all drainage ditches and burns were full and overflowing. This made progress difficult and slow. I left the bus at 11:25 and only got to the edge of the forest not very far at 12:35. I climbed beside a prominent burn which provided spectacular waterfalls. I reached the summit of Sgurr Dearg. It was very misty, with drizzle.pwbellarby26/07/1998
