Circuit of Beinn na Feusaige, Carn Beag, Meallan Mhic Iamhair, Carn Breac (including the new summit location, probably also visited previously), Aonach Dubh. Spell of rain then clearing and excellent views to Torridon.RobertP11/07/2019
Loan circular. Approached via head of Coire Crubaidh before heading E along the main ridge.Smudge10/05/2019
Re-ascended from the next to the ruined hut at NH 0625 5096 up and over to the new GR because it was not mentioned in the diary entry for 10/11/2000. On sight: probably done it. Slightly shorter but definitely better route descended down the neighbouring spurr to S to the road at NH 0581 5058. Spent the night at Gerry's for the first time. Weird. SOTA guy doing the same, thank the Fates.Eddie28/02/2019
Return visit to get relocated summit.PGCE28/02/2019
Standard clockwise circuit of the two Grahams. Straightforward, good going after the dry spell. Good views, though cloud base about 900m over Torridon, breezy, but forecast showers stayed away.Owen B14/07/2018
Checked my log to confirm went over new high point.ngthack20/05/2018

Double Marilyn day with Jon Glew and Steve Lewis. Parked at gated entrance to old road off A890 walking towards 166m spot height and marked milestone that we could not find. Followed good track north of Allt Coire Crubaidh almost to the new dam. track becomes a muddy ATV track running slightly to south of mapped track disappearing completely, maybe easier to find if no snow on ground or heavy snow shower making visibility difficult. Took an easterly route to gain height before heading SW aiming to avoid joining main ridge until about NH 04800 53264. Continued to the SW to find frozen trig pillar enclosed on 3 sides by equally frozen shelter. Cold wind but beaytiful views all round of may fin Torridon Munros to the north and Monar Forest Munros to the south.SteveSmith09/02/2018
From Glen Carron, parking at old loop in road near 166m spot height. With Steves Smith and Lewis. Good vehicle track to the dam; rough heathery ground thereafter. Lovely winter conditions. On to the neighbouring Graham with the almost Highland 5 in between.jonglew09/02/2018
A nice hill, climbed after Beinn na Feusaige. Very easy going compared with the connecting ridge/bog. Found the descent path from the bealach, it's good at first, but soon disappears, then reappears along the valley, improving the lower you get. Got a lift back from the hydro dam from a fellow MarHoFer. [Note, I definitely went over the high point even when it wasn't official].Gill21/12/2017
From Feusaige, descend to ruined stone cottage beside river, track runs past it, bit indistinct at first. Warm, sunny, cold unrelenting wind, good views. Summit location changed 16/1/19. Checked my log, gone over it on the way back.iangalbraith08/05/2017
Via Aonach Dubh, then on to Beinn na Feusage.NormanW16/04/2017
Along high line from Feusaige. Gale and spots of rain on summit. Tracks down to Glen Carron shown on map indistinct and near impossible to follow, descent mainly on deer tracks.Topographer5719/08/2016
Track up the valley then deer tracks to bealach and along ridge to the top.jenx19/08/2016
Climbed Carn Breac and BnF together from roadside parking. Can access old road but have to drive through a lockable gate. Hydro scheme ongoing, good track a short way up glen, then old path poor at first then improves. Branch up into coire can be followed further than maps show. Drag out to the Breac, then back over tump to skirt Lochan to north on tiring ground. Steep up to top where pleasantly met Jonathan de Ferranti. Circuit in about 4hrs.nordicstar19/08/2016
(cont fr B na Feusaige) Avoided intermediate top on S (better to go over). Followed long broad ridge to summit (14:35); trig pt in shelter. Continued S and then E along Coille ridge back to car (16:45). Good day with good views, esp to S.dbb19/05/2015
After Feusaige. Nice top, great views. Carried on round the horseshoe.Martin R01/10/2014

Parked on A890 in wide entrance gateway to S. Over a deer gate, good track between 2 forests to its end then peaty path for a mile, climbing steadily. Over dry grass between heather and boulders to 1500' ridge. Light drizzle. Long 1 1/4 mile on wide ridge on short dry heather. Many cairns and to top at 11.10. Moss covered column with FB removed Stout stone wall around 3 sides - ideal for today's strong cold NW wind. to Iamhair.arranc12/06/2008
