MMC Durness WE. Solo leaving YH at 0500 took 90 mins to get to parking. Early morning frozen ascent with a snow plod to top. Glad I took my ice axe and microspikes tho could have managed with just poles. Occasional low cloud and hail. Mostly sunny and perfect viz. Excellent views from summit. 5 hoursalexmaclennan11/05/2019
From Vagastie NC535283. IMPORTANT NOTE: the bridge here is due to be removed. The bridge at 537289 will remain. Nb the building at 538288 has been completely removed. Met farmer who is restoring the plot to a more natural state. KeithByTheC23/04/2019
Beautiful sunny day, mist clearing from top so great views. Chilly but great day.Capt Malbec12/04/2019
Go past the Crask inn for 2 miles to a humpback bridge. The path starts here and goes up the nose to a 544m spot height. Follow path up and at 650m you see a path cut under the hill and will traverse the hill for 2km. From thus bealach it's about 1.4km and 250m of ascent with a steep pull. Return the same wayAristotle Chip21/02/2019

Quick dry ascent with Scott B, thunder at summit, very wet on descent.barnz4829/05/2016
Nice sunny, cool day. EXCEPT 3 minutes before the top it rained heavy. I sheltered next to the broken trig point until the sun came out again a few minutes later. Horrible wet, slippery ascent up A'Chioch west grass slope and rock band. Descended much further south. Only found out later there was a bridge further south - Doh.Jhimmy28/08/2015
Walked with Stewart. Left one car at Vagastie (GR 534282), drove up to The Crask Inn and walked from there. Fantastic views today. Descended to GR 534282 but the bridge was fenced off so had to wade across the stream.tsharp08/06/2015
Solo - a lot of snowTopsaswell30/03/2015
GLSS hillwalk and Michael's last Munro. Andrew came too. Started from Vagastie Bridge. Conditions ok on the way up but massive thunderstorm on the way back down which even managed to set the hillside on fire, so we arrived back at the cars just in time to see the fire engine leaving.killiedaft26/07/2014
