A night hike up Beinn a' Chliabhain to the summit then down the other side for a summit camp. Sunrise was brilliant, what a place to awake to and the ridge outlines along with the Moon at night were amazing. Returned to the car at Glen Rosa in the morning after little sleep.Chris Mac14/07/2019

3rd hill of 10 on epic day of walking and scrambling from Brodick to Corrie. I took the Glen Rosa track and then the footpath upto Benn Nuiss continuing onto Beinn Tarsuinn and then at the Consolation Tor i found a narrow path under the huge buttress rhat links the ridge to Beinn Chliabain where i climbed up to climb all potential rocky summits. Re-traced steps and then had my packed lunch under a boulder at the start of the A' Chir ridge.Dazingdale13/05/2016
