Glen Torridon - Stuc a Choire Dhuibh Bhig - Stob a Choire Liath Mhor - Spidean a Choire Leith - Am Fasarinen - Mullach an Rathain - Glen Torridon and back to eastern car park.Mark Jackson29/05/2019
Hiked as a guided walk with Steven Fallon Guides, John King and Christine Menhennet. Planned to do both summits on Liathach, both I had a low blood sugar early on and really struggled up to Mullach an Rathain. But with Christine's encouragement I got this Munro then returned by the same route, 4:50hrs all in. Horrible clag, wind and rain above 600m, no views on top.chillyman823/05/2019
Complete traverse of Liathach including Am Fasarinen from Glen Torridon. Highest UK temp of 26 centigrade for today recorded at Kinlochewe.knarf15/05/2019

2nd munro of the day. Avoided pinnacles but enjoyed the views within Liatach as well as extensive views 360 degree.No problem reaching summit but descent tricky because of severely eroded path. Great day.Met no one but saw 3 others ahead of us.dave neilson06/07/2018

East west traverse with Barbara Jones and her mountain guide Jim Sutherland on utterly glorious conditions. Full traverse including along the crest of the An Fasarinen pinnacles and coming of east after Mullach an Rathain but not Meall Dearg to the north, which I'd done previously in 2012.vegibagger13/10/2015

Third day of five-day trip with DW & SL. Classic Liathach traverse. The scrambling was easier than I expected - principally because it is is essentially ALL avoidable if you want it to be. We had an awesome day - clear weather, no wind across ridge/summits, but it was hazy.AGWilliamson21/09/2014
Traverse of Liathach on a bright clear with view in all directions.rhalstead26/06/2014
2nd of 2. Thankfully Tom earned a reprieve and we could just focus on walking the ridge before a honking descent path...extremely eroded and tough on the knees! 14km, 1530m, 8hr20.bowzi07/06/2014

Climbed from the south directly up the path, day after dog Ben-ji lost off the the northern crags, blown by helicopter downdraught from rescue! Planned to go down into northern corrie to look for body but too cold once there on western rim and decided not to.vegibagger14/04/2012

Revisit. Whole of SW slope above village was on fire almost to ridge level but an ascent to Mullach an Rathain was possible. Made a spur-of-the-moment traverse to the Northern Pinnacles - scarier than I remember from my previous visit! I headed down gaining exciting close-up views of the fire which was encroaching on the path (partly paved, starts at NG913554, copse). Alligin-Liathach-Eighe trigs on a perfect spring day :-)RHW01/05/2011

225th - Solo - Dry, clear and sunny day. From Torridon YH east to west traverse. The Pinnacles were good, but the best bit was the delicate scramble to the top Meall Dearg.RGibbs25/04/2011

Direct and first ascent from Fasag. Down tourist route into Glen Torridon from the summit. A purposeful ascent with little aesthetic value. Fun however! Cloud on top.Messiaen24/05/2010
