Moruisg + Sgurr nan Ceannaichean. Usual route, starting from layby on A890. Very wet underfoot. Broken cloud at top so views were not brilliant. Totally clear by the time I got back to car (typical). Nice walk though!tsharp21/04/2017
Cycled round from Craig; had planned to go up the stalkers' path, but didn't see it and instead took an off-piste route further east.Pete R05/08/2016

Lovely long ridge from the Munro to get to this. The route north back to the road is awkward and tiring.Play2End11/10/2014
Easy bag from the Munro Moruisg. Nice stalkers path down. Newly erected deer fences varound to protect new trees.Jhimmy27/06/2014

6th Solo. From Craig, follow the track along the Allt a Chonais, ascend S flank to summit and follow ridge round to Munro, descent down NW flank of Moruisg (as no longer had a map). Completed while it was still classified as a Munro as part of the walk including Moruisg. Snow above 750m, strong winds and light snow showers. The strong winds led to the added excitement of losing my only copy of the map on the summit plateau leading to the most expensive map I have ever bought.RGibbs06/02/2011

Arrived from Moruisg then took the north ridge off and then east to the stalkers path. This was not the best path and so hacked cross country to the car park on the A890.garyhoney15/07/2009

After cycling in from Craig we did this then munro and Martin was so knackered from the cycling he crawled to this peak in the rain. Later it was declared a corbett much to his chagrin. Found it a bit boring not a peak I would return to with any desire. Company: The nearly beaten Martin Stewart.iandesbottes02/11/2007

A hateful mountain, covered with slugs!liz16/06/2006
Pleasant ridge walk from Moruisg. We enjoyed the descent, too- N ridge, fine corrie and a good path by the burn by recovering woodland. The last 300m were messy as the path disappeared into a bog. This may have changed- I'd guess more regeneration with deer fences to protect- get up to date info!pwheeler21/05/2006
