Took bus Strontian to Sallachan 978627 (9:55). Walked up road & path up glen, then struck up NE ridge to trig point and then summit of B Leamhain (11:15). Down NW ridge for abt 1 km till crags eased then down to tussocky col (12:00). Overcast but dry. Long ascent to Sgorr Mhic Eacharna (13:10), then via deep col to Beinn Bheag (14:10). Fine undulating rocky ridge with great views of Garbh Bheinn. Finally down to col en route to Sg nan Cnamh; long slabby then rocky ridge led to summit (15:50). Continued ENE, following the long watercourse down to Ceann a Chreagain (ruin). Weather had been overcast but dry; drizzle began on descent. River low so fordable but rocks v slippery. Walked through woods back to Ariundle car park (18:10) and cycled back to car at Strontian.dbb15/06/2015

Did the wonderful round of Coire an Iubhair, over the Grahams to the E first. Followed the path up the glen for a short way & then forced a way up on to Druim an Iubhair. This was tedious but worth it once we were up. Followed the broad ridge along to Sgorr Mhic Eacharna & then round the increasingly rough ground to Beinn Bheag. From here, continued along to the minor tops at 692m & 682m & then dropped straight down to the bealach. Ascended a wet gully which looked easier from the bottom than it actually was: steep, slippery & loose at its narrowest point but then easier after that. Wound our way round the rough stuff to the summit & a terrific view before following the long SE ridge down to the starting point. This round didn't do my knees much good but it was worth it!NotReallyABagger10/09/2014

from Eacharna. Down gingerly following occasional bits of path to a grassy col a long way below. 13.30.
