Debs & Tali. Sgurr an Airgid to Carnan Cruithneachd with a few tops along the way.Mountain Goat05/05/2019
From Camas-luinie. Along path on S side of Glen Elchaig then crossing bridge to track on N side. Crossed a very low River Elchaig to take stalkers' path running up W of Carnan Cruithneachd then near high point headed up to top of Carnan Cruithneachd (fine summit). Crossed to Suie Dhu, down to top of falls of Glomach, across stream then steeply up to Meall Sguman. Return to Falls of Glomach and down impressive path to cross bridge to the Glen Elchaig track. Hot sunny day.RobertP02/07/2018
Cycled up Glen Elchaig. No sign of any path or river crossing west of the hill so continued to Falls of Glomach and ascended by east ridge. A rather round about route but not without interest.Topographer5727/05/2018
From Morvich NTS Car Park through forest onto open ground. Superb peak on a wintry day with snow and mist which cleared while on top to give a Brocken Spectre, inversion and eventually fine views.benalder28411/03/2018
1 of 4: From Killilan. Bike to Falls FP.ChrisR21/08/2016
Cycled up Glen Elchaig to Glomach falls path. This was spectacular on a sunny day. Then round to the pass and across the Simm to the top. A great Graham.jenx15/08/2016
From Killilan CP for second day. This time only as far as the river bridge for the Falls of Glomach. The that path, interesting in places. Branched off for the Graham and then a steady crossing if the burn to climb Meall Sguman.nordicstar15/08/2016
From Glomach car park near Morvich. Up steep path through forest onto open hillside. Ascended from SW up grassy rakes between rocky outcrops. Superb summit views along Glen Elchaig. Descended steeply on grass and heather to neighbouring Tump.Campbell Singer08/06/2016

Off path trundle up over deer grass into boulder area. Mist now cleared. GPS on final stretch and to top at 11.50. Hare and ptarmigan. 16 feral goats.

With a friend. We climbed A Ghlas-bheinn and Carnan Cruithneachd. We left Morvich Outdoor Centre and walked on path up Strath Croe and Gleann Chòinneachain to Bealach an Sgàirne and then climbed to the summit of A Ghlas-bheine. Walked N to Bealach na Sròine and to the summit of Carnan Cruithneachd. We descended SW in a thunderstorm to meet the path coming in from the north. We followed the path ~S and then forest tracks to Dorusduain. We crossed the river to join the path used on the outward journey.pwbellarby12/05/2001
