Climbed solo. Exceptionally fine, warm, weather and dry underfoot. From Lundie (Loch Cluanie) to Old Military Road to stalkers path (excellent) all the way up Carn Ghluasaid. To Craig a Chaorainn, to Sgurr nan Conbhairean, to Sail Chaorainn. Return to Sgurr nan Conbhairean (skirted summit at 1050m contour). SW ridge to Drochaid an Tuill Easaich. S ridge to Meall Breac. Descend steep east slopes to Allt Coire nan Clach. Return to Lundie via stalkers path and old military road. Fine walk with extensive views of Kintail, Knoydart, Affric and south to Ben Nevis on a clear day. Fairly easy too in good conditions. Grassy/stony ridges with dramatic corries to the north and east (hidden from road).jamessteel10025/07/2018

With GGWC, recovering from foot op and illness so my first hill for a long time. Glorious hot sunny Highland day with not a cloud in the sky and fantastic views in every direction. Cloud inversion towards Great Glen. Ptarmigan near top. Fantastic day. Makes you feel glad to be alive and blessed to live in this part of the country.Maggie26/05/2018
First Munro of 3 Munros & 4 Munro Top group. Followed path up from A87 west of bridge over Coire nan Clach. Went to SE cairn first and cairn to NW on edge of corrie looked higher, also large fixed rock between cairns looked to be a candidate. From NW cairn SE cairn looked lower. Visited all three so bagged for sure. On now to Creag a'Chaorainn.SteveSmith30/10/2017

Done as a part of a 3 munro day with Hazel and Gordon. Turned into a bit of an epic when wind tripled in strength, visibility vanished and planned descent route turned out a lot tougher than planned thanks to the full winter conditions.jonbowyer03/01/2015
