From W top on circuit from Kinloch Hourn; main objective of day. Continued to N top.Aye Jimmy05/07/2017
Awesome sunny morning. Started at 06.30 after sleeping in car. Really warm at 8!davechaffey27/05/2017
Circuit of Bhuidhe Bheinn and Sgurr a' Bhac Chaolais from just N of Coireshubh. Set off along good path running high above Kinloch Hourn on a day with forecast heavy rain and thunderstorms (it turned out just a couple of showers and drizzle). Climbed roughly NNW (very steep) to reach Buidhe Bheinn West Top, then nice traverse to the Corbett, a couple of tops then Sgurr a' Bhac Chaolais, descent to Bealach Duibh Leac via Sgurr a'Bhac Chaolais East Top. Traverse to join path running back to start, camping close to a knoll in still midgy conditions.RobertP27/05/2017

Glen Shiel - Bealach Dubh Leac - Sgurr a'Bhac Chaloais - Buidhe Bheinn and return. Significant snow cover and mist together with significant ascent and re-ascents made this a challenging mid-winter route.benalder28411/02/2017
Ascended from Arnisdale via Beinn Clachach and Gleann Dubh Lochain. Traversed entire ridge round to Sgurr a' Bhac Chaolais. Returned to Bealach Duibh Leac and down Stalker's path to Malagan.raffemeister23/10/2016

With Max Inwood. Ascent to Bealach Dubh Leac then onto Sgurr a Bhac Chaolais. Bumbled around the top and finally got onto ridge an then Beinn Buidhe. Snow underfoot and occasional driving snow. Good views when cleared. 7 hour round.alexmaclennan15/05/2013
two days after my final Munro and the exciting day of finally surveying Sa'BCh and Buidhe Bheinn, having been championing BB since various letters to OS in 95/96 about its height and eventually getting out of them that new Metric data was available but not yet on the map and that it was 885m. also included going over all the various tops including the SW top. The result was a great triumph to have BB reinstated as the Corbett and Marilynvegibagger05/09/2012

MC JC DC. Climbed from Scottas in Inverie on the last day of a hot holiday week. Climbed directly on to Sgurr Coirenan Gobhar through deep undergrowth trees and sporadic cliffs. tough going. Great views from the summit to the Rough Bounds peaks and to the Ben which was still holding a lot of snow. Thought we could see Schiehallion?Martin6613/05/2001
