3rd attempt after stopping at Pt 608 in 1973 and 1974 in heavy rain and thick mist. This time I summited but the mist descended, spoiling the view and preventing me going on to Corodale.Topographer5719/09/2017

Parked at memorial lay-by on A.865 South of loch Dobhrain, walked back N along road and up track near house and big greenhouse to access the moorland, glorious warm sunny day. Aimed for v-shaped bealach, found path again up heathery slopes, easier going up bouldery NW ridge. Superb ridge walk to summit, views fantastic! Returned same route. Climbed with wife Nicola and children James and Laura.pdantic09/08/2017
Parked on the Peat Road to the N.W and cut across the moor to the ridge. Very easy ridge walking to the dramatic top.4hrs there and back.Play2End06/04/2017
Definitely one of my favourite ridge walks. It was so still and hot walking up that the midges were a problem. Golden Plover, Long-leaved and Round-leaved Sundew, Butterwort. No eagles, sadly. Wondered if we'd make it when we saw narrow ridge, but the path follows the southern, more gentle slopes, not the precipitous ridge. With Paul.Skerryvore05/06/2016
With G. From end of road @ Loch Aineort > Bealach Crosgard via path at first on edge of loch then across rough moor & then steep to bealach > Beinn Mhor > back to Beinn nan Caorach > Bealach Bolum (easy ground) > NF 793 298 on easy to follow winding 4x4/peat track > then South across moor navigating lochs before picking up paths (NF 794 290). If found whilst crossing the moor, the 4x4 track to Bealach Bolum (NF 818 288) is a good (longer but easier & distinct) alternative to the climb up to Bealach Crosgard.RT197026/05/2016
Parked at 768,346. Constant rain for entire walk and clag down to 1000ft which gave a few navigational problms on descent.Crib Goch17/05/2016
With: hb; Very strong NW wind but clear day. Walked up from bridge by Abhainn Rog. Met David Broom on summit - who had walked up S ridge.Ian Baines13/05/2016

Dropped off at Lasgair, Lochboisdale. Ascended Beinn Ruigh Choinnich, Triuirebheinn, Stulabhal, Airneabhal, crossed east flank of Trinneabhal and descended to be picked up at road end. Dropped off at road end on north side of Loch Aineort. Ascended Beinn Mhor, Beinn Choradail, Hecla and descended to Loch Sgioport. Amazing travesrse - thanks for the lift across Loch Aineort btw. Would be good to use a bike or kayak for this also.raffemeister15/04/2015
Completed alongwith Beinn Choradail and Hecla. Cloud sitting in glen so no views of cliffs, although good views to south. Ascended from Snishival, ascent boggy and tiring, then on ridge much easier.quadbarrel10/04/2015
from track at loch dobhrain to summit and also bc and heclarobertphillips12/09/2014
East from locheynort through short path entrance to wet moor to bealach thence to ridge, same route as Arranc. Probably not the most efficient ascent route, but enjoyable nevertheless.dandaran23/08/2014
Camped outside Howmore hostel, walked up with Roisin, amazing weather. Could see St Kilda. Bit of Hanger at the top before being fixed with oatcakes and peanut butter. saw a corncrake.GravelMonkey26/06/2014

W Jenx, parked at rd junction GR768348, track from loch Dobhrain to end and short moor crossing to Moala Breac ridge. Followed this to Mhor ridge and under impressive views to summit, with pleasant scrambling. Onwards to Beinn Choradailnordicstar14/04/2012

from layby by loch dubhrain, a trudge across open moor, into the cloud at around 400m. so no real views of the ridge..stig_nest21/05/2010
From road. Windy day no midges until jumped into summit cairn where they were all hiding, got out quick.mart079722/08/2009
Walked to the summit and back from the road. Cloudy on top so didn't extend it.mindlessflogger18/08/2008

Off the A865 there is an access track to some works probably water and by these works is a car park.Another plus for this walk is a fence (all but destroyed) which runs in a direct line to the NW ridge from the works. Summit then obtainedgaryhoney08/08/2004
Solo walk. Summit was cloud-capped.mikejacobs09/08/2003
From Loch Aineort. Path for first 1 1/2m, through bracken and heather to cross wire fence and a long mile slog over wet moor. Steeply up to bealach and broad grassy ridge and narrowing prow to tall cairn 400m before top at 12.35.arranc31/07/2001
2nd ascent -on our 2nd Western Isles Challenge -but this time I continued over hills (marilyns)to the north.Chris Pearson09/05/2000
Round of Hecla, Corodale and Beinn Mhor from Howemore hostel.Eddie07/10/1997
A 9km solo run leg for me on day 1 of the hugely complex and never to be forgotten Western Isles Challenge -3 day team relay with Lesley,Rob, Matty, running, cycling and kyacking the length of the W Isles. I cycled in to SW leaving Claire to recover bike and then made a bee line up the steep slopes and down NW to pass on the the harris tweed 'baton' to Rob for a bike leg, before being collected and shuttled onwards,to await Matty kyacking across a narrow sea loch who should have met Lesley having run over the moors, who should have met Rob after his cycle to pass back the tweed back to me, and so on. Startled that our plans which were months in the preparing seemed to be actually working so far.Chris Pearson08/05/1996
with Michelle and a ridiculously huge rucksack, thinking we'd camp down on the east side. Abandoned that idea and even of going on to Hecla. Just did Corradalevegibagger04/06/1994
