from morvich by Kintail outdoor centre we followed the path and went up the nose to go over the ridge which is a great route to turn Fhada into a circular route. the stalkers path is a great way to returnAristotle Chip24/08/2016

Solo. Had planned on 2 but the legs were gone! Roaster of a day! Plus having the exhaust fall off the van earlier held me back. Good path in pretty much all the way. Met some folks heading for their compleation as I was on the way out. 19.7km, 1270m, 7hr30.bowzi08/07/2013

Solo. My third attempt on this summit. My previous failures were on 27/11/2008, with Ian and on 02/08/2009, with Gavin, Edi, Mary & Marriane. Both failed attempts were due to dangerous river conditions in spate.Dangerous Dave13/06/2010

My second Munro! Climbed after A'Ghlas-bheinn. Climbed directly from the col between the two followed by a traverse of the ridge and descent via the SW ridge. VERY steep and a rude introduction to exposed scrambling!Claire10/04/2009

With two friends. From Morvich outdoor Centre. Over Faradh Nighean Fhearchair, Sgurr a Choire Ghaibh and Meall an Fhuarain Mhòir to Beinn Fhada. We descended NW to reach path as it passes top part of Allt Coire an Sgàirne. The path goes north and becomes a stalkers' path, which turns west to descend to the coire floor. The path then joins the path that has come over Bealach an Sgàirne. We followed the path down Glean Choinneachain. There were large thunder claps near the end of the walk. The rain started to fall just after we reached the cars.pwbellarby09/05/2004
