Corran circular.Smudge13/05/2019
From Corran, up Glen Arnisdale, over bridge and along to descending zig zags. Then steeply up on grass and rocky outcrops with occasional cairn to summit. Visited both cairns and then along ridge visiting all tops to Sgurr Mor. Delightful walk with outstanding views in all directions. Down rocky and grassy slopes to track which led straight to tearoom! Excellent hill and fine ridge.MichaelF13/07/2018
Druim Fada ridge and Beinn Clachach from Corran. Sgurr Mor Far West Top, West Top, Near West Top and Sgurr Mor, Druim Fada. Descent W then NNW (with care) down to W end of Dubh Lochain. Walked approx. 400m along shore then climbed steeply to join SW ridge of Beinn Clachach, visiting summit and nearby lower knolls. Across to W top then descent N then NW to join track leading back to Glen Arnisdale. Hot day, but clouds developed and dropped to summit level.RobertP01/07/2018

Up Glen Arnisdale to summit. Then West along ridge taking in all summits.NormanW05/04/2017
Ascended on east side of Eigin Allt. Very steep and ended up in rotten rock gully. Not pleasant. No water in burns. Superb summit views. Decided to avoid ridge due to time pressures and water shortage. Descended steeply in Coire na Cosaig and then long walk back to Corran using excellent track.Campbell Singer09/06/2016
4 of 4: From East Top.ChrisR07/06/2016
From the CP at road end in Corran. Up the track to West of hill to high point then steep ground all way to top. After summit cairn along the ridge with tops and trig all the way to far west top, then to end and cut direct down to gate in lower pasture using deer tracks. Day turned wet but still a great outing.nordicstar17/05/2016
Along the track, up, then back along the ridge. I thought I would enjoy this ridge but didn't. Mist and rain probably didn't help. And it's difficult to avoid any of the tops. So lots of steep up and down. Ok if you want to tick tops. Otherwise a load of effort for one Graham.jenx17/05/2016
from Kinloch Hourn. Long walk but interesting.IanHHill17/07/2015
West to East on a warm day with still air in November.jimbloomer17/11/2014

From Corran. Wet. Reversed normal route so that if I was going to drown in the thigh deep 'fords' on the track, it would be after I got the summit bagging tick. Did I mention it was wet? And windy.Martin R21/02/2012

Parked at Corran. Access road to Glen Arnisdale, bridge over river. Track climbs sharply on zig zags before falling to 2 lochans. Followed deer tracks across stream and up green gulley to ridge, passing rocky outcrops. Each step rising about a foot at a time. Open area to check GPS and to top at 13.25. Twin tops 60m apart. Magic views. Loch Hourn full length to Barrisdale.arranc14/08/2005
Walked through Glen Arnisdale to ascend after passing the Dubh Lochan in good weather. Excellent views from this remote hill. Continued along ridge back to Corran.JohnW02/04/2002
