With Penda. From wild camp by Loch Hourn, up and down from the North. Steep and very windy but clear and sunny. Amazing views! 5.5 miles, 5 hours.beorwulf30/04/2017

Quick up and back from Arnisdale in the evening. Sadly no views.tomd406/09/2016
save this for a fine day. park in the village of Arnisdale and follow the sign out of the village. this is relentess in steepness. an easy path to follow to the summit of 906m. the path is very steep and you will use your hands to help on the last part of the climb. the views are the best akin to Norway fijords. the path is off the back and easy to follow to a lochen. tou see a path left and this will go through a forest back to the road. its steep so take care. once on the road you have about an hours walk back to the car.Aristotle Chip20/08/2016
Climbed Beinn Sgitheall solo from Arnisdale, including the East Top and NW Top. Ample parking in village. Lovely path up to Bealach Arnasdail. Bouldery climb to E top. Great though short ridge walk from there to the main summit, which is a stupendous viewpoint overlooking Loch Hourn, Skye and the hills of Knoydart and Kintail. After bagging the NW top, I traversed back to the West Ridge for the descent. The last bit through Coille Mhialairigh woods to the Arnisdale road is awkward as I lost the very faint path and ended up fighting through some steep and very overgrown hillside! Weather was fine - no wind, sunny earlier in the day, but clouding up later (mist settled on the summits, but after I left). Was plagued by midges at times, and a swarm of flying ant-like insects at the summit (one of whom bit me!). Nonetheless, a very fine isolated Munro and much recommended!jamessteel10017/08/2016
Solo from the road opposite Eilean Rarsaidh. Careful route finding needed through the woods but once on the ridge, it is a great climb (even in the drizzle!)mikejacobs06/08/2016
