Beinn Gaire and Croit Bheinn from Glen Moidart. Cycled from public road end to Forsary then SW ridge.Topographer5701/10/2019
Took track to S & E of river to Glenforsain beside wall then headed for SW ridge Beinn Gàire then Beinn Gàire back to Bealach a' Choire Mhòir & down into the quagmire Glen Moidart. Boots were saturated. 9h 15m.rogreeves08/09/2019
Anti clockwise circuit of Glen Moidart. Hills very dry.daviemore14/05/2019
An easy walk up Glen Moidart to Croit Bheinn over bone dry bogs. Even the bogs on the way to Beinn Gaire were more or less dry. Note: the descent from Beinn Gaire needs some care with the map work, and I ended up checking with a bearing, despite perfect visibility. The plateau is quite complex. Saw a beautiful healthy dog fox coming up the hill when I was coming down. Funnily enough he was disinclined to stop for a chat.Gill08/06/2018
Very Dry conditionsa after Croit Bheinn. 5hrs 30 for the round as pretty fit after Harris LAMM training.dmckeith03/06/2018

From parking space at end of road up Glen Moidart. Took track on East side that leads past small hydro scheme and up to Loch Forslan. Easy up ridge to Beinn Gaire. Oneards over snowy and icy ground oving several small tops to Bealach before Croit Bheinn. Steeply down to Glen Gluitanen and the long haul out. Stay up on East side on way out, can avoid worst if the wet ground. Passing the old village of Ulgary, poignant tales of the clearance from here.nordicstar05/03/2016
A great day out, and fine winter conditions for the higher level walking. I found my spikes useful on the icy ground between the two tops. Interesting social history on long walk back through the glens.jenx05/03/2016

longish day with Croit Bheinn, but good views and fair underfoot.IanHHill21/05/2012
Walk in memory of Peter Still. Parked at the end of the Moidart road in a small car park. In shirt sleeves. Good road for over a mile to a small hydro station. Crossed the stream outlet on a flimsy metal plank to open hillside. Over BWF. Ring Ouzel. Clamber to the left to a ridge up for 1,400' to visible horizon and to the top at 11.45. Neat cairn recently rebuilt like an Inuit cairn (and another on the next hill).arranc02/07/2011
