Sgurr Mhurlagain (NM 013946) S/F NM981914 Cold, windy, snow from 1500', overcast, cloudbase 2000'.John Young01/04/2006
With a friend. We drove to the end of the public road at the end of Loch Arkaig. The road is deteriorating. We walked up the path near Dearg Allt. Walked up the broad SW ridge of Sgùrr Mhurlagain to reach the summit. It was misty on top with rain and somewhat cold. We went down Druim Coire an Stangain Mhòir, now out of the mist and the rain stopped. We went off north before the end to reach the River Kingie. We had intended to cross the river and climb Gairich but the river was too deep. We walked upstream to near Kinbeck bothy before finding a place where it might have been possible to cross. The walk by the river had been slow due to peat hags etc so by now it was quite late. We decided to continue upstream and eventually made a bivvy a short distance below the col between An Eag and Sgùrr Còs na Breachd-laoidh.pwbellarby23/06/2005
