Sgurr a'Choire-bheithe ridge with tops from road by Loch Quoich. No problems with river crossings on this excellent day in dry spell. Descended into Gleann Cosaidh on return but unclear whether this saves any time. Just over 10h. Impressive ridge and excellent views to Knoydart, Ben Aden, Sgurr na Ciche.RobertP27/05/2016

Via stalkers' path from Coireshubh, then onto Meall nan Eun, Slat Bheinn, Sgurr a'Choire-bheithe and Ben Aden. A long day - probably better to split over two days with a wild camp.mae24/05/2010

Disappointing day meant that this was a bit of a wet slog, instead of a nice ascent. Never mind at least I managed something on a dismal daygman28/07/2007

From N shore Loch Quoich at NG 977.037. Stayed close to shore to Abhainn Chosaidh. No problem crossing this, then seemingly endless knolly ridge, in heatwave, over many tops to summit itself. Cairn and pool nearby. Returned via Slat Bheinn and Gleann Chosaidh. A tough day.Aye Jimmy16/07/2006
From Barrisdale bothy. Mist lifted as I climbed on good paths over 2 bridges up a narrow glen. Left path and steady plod steeply over lank grass to ridge, which I followed all the way to top at 10.15. No view - mist.arranc30/07/2004

With friend. From point where road to Kinloch Hourn leaves Loch Quoich. Walked round Loch Quaich on something of a path, at one stage being on an old road. At the Abhainn Chòsaidh we joined the stalker’s path going up the glen. We left the path where it leaves the main glen to go up a subsidiary glen towards Glen Barrisdale. Further up the main glen we climbed up the mountainside between rocky buffs to reach the second subsidiary top to the east of Sgurr a’ Choire-bheithe. We reached the summit of Sgurr a’ Choire-bheithe. It was a very warm day. My friend went on over Slat Bheinn and joined the path from Glen Barrisdale for the return. I returned by traversing the complete ridge of Druim Chòsaidh including Sgurr Airigh na Beinne before rejoining the outward route.pwbellarby20/06/1998
