With Harrison - anticlockwise route covering the horns and both munro summits. Started cloudy but warm with almost no wind (midge-fest) - claggy on the horns but cleared to blue skies by the time we reached Sgurr Mhor summit. Easy scrambling but somewhat exposed in a few places.mproudfoot24/07/2020
Most beautiful day on the hills so far. So lucky to have perfect conditions with virtually no wind, a powdering of snow and no cloud. a great day to be on the ridge.Nicky C30/10/2019
Walked from Torridon along the road until you come to first car park, then up to first Munro Tom na Gruagaich, then along to second Munro Sgurr Mhor and down via the Horns of Alligin. Weather, some heavy rain at first with fairly strong wind, before clearing on Sgurr Mhor and though some cloud still around, weather got better and better. Excellent walk.Fell_wanderer12/09/2019
Route: Parking near Torridon Hotel – Coire MhicNobaill – Na Rathanan Far East Top – Na Rathanan East Top – Na Rathanan – Sgurr Mhor – Sgurr Mhor West Top – Tom na Gruagaich – Tom na Gruagaich West Top – Coire nan Laogh – parking. Stats: 5hrs55, 11.2km, 1,297m ascent. Weather: hot & sunny. Notes: glorious scrambling along ‘the horns’ of Na Rathanan ridge; excellent views from Munros.millionmts07/09/2019
Trade circuit inc horns. P&N turned back after 1st Munro. Misty on all summits, clear on gaps between horns. Rounsfell30/05/2019
With: hb; From the car park, walked up Coire MhicNobaill, crossed the two bridges then scrambled up the south east ridge to the Horns (Na Rathanan). Supern scrambling over the horns in glorious sunshine, being followed by the beast od Alligin (a Collie which chose the stay with us rather than return to its owners who were half an hour behind us!). We descended to the bealach then walked up to Sgurr Mhor where we had lunch. We looked down impressive Eag Dhubh (Black cleft) on the path across to Tom nan Gruagaich. The descent path down Coire nan Laogh was tedious but gave good views back to start. This was a superb walk after so much rain. The paths have changed out of all recognition since my first visit in 1978.Ian Baines29/05/2019
With: ib; Walked up Coire MhicNobaill, crossed the bridge & up SE ridge to Horns (Na Rathanan). Descend to col then up Sgurr Mhor. Looked down impressive Eag Dubh then to Tom nan Gruagaich. Descent down path to start. Superb walk after so much rain. Helen Baines29/05/2019
