Parked at loch, up hill at gully beside first house, super deer tracks to @ 500m, then nothing. Warm, sunny, cool wind, good views.iangalbraith09/05/2017
Parked on road by Loch an Loin, followed track then new track line (left hand branch, right is u/s). Some then of rhe old path but a bit of a mess. Left at 250m to angle up to steeper ground using good deer tracks to fillow a great line up to the col area. Top easily gained then down west ridge and direct line to start point.nordicstar17/08/2016

Parked at entrance to Glasnock. On track, through a gate, across a young bracken patch, to cross a stream in a miniature chasm. Made for rocky escarpment on horizon. Clamber through rocky outliers, steeply in places up to top at 11.20. Neat cairn on last heave of rock and grass. Cairnlet 100m further on seemed marginally higher. Shieldaig, Torridon village, Alligin, Damh, Eaglaise, Liathach, Eighe, S Ruadh and F Tholl. Huge range of peaks to SE. Loch Carron in 2 sections. An Sgurr, Cuillin, B Bhan and Trotternish.arranc03/06/2009

With a friend. From the south end of Loch an Lin. We walked along the track to the east side of the loch and then went up the hillside on the NE side of a burn with trees on either side. We then went up the broad W ridge to the summit of Sgurr a Gharaidh. Descended somewhat to the N of our ascent route. Later we joined other friends at Coire Fionnaraich bothy.pwbellarby03/11/2001
