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

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 Cḥinneachain to Bealach an Sgàirne and then climbed to the summit of A’ Ghlas-bheine. Walked N to Bealach na Sṛine 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
