Sligachan to Sconser, taking in Being Dearg Mheadhonach, BD Mhor, Sgurr Mhairi + An Coileach. Windy but warmclashcityrocker26/07/2019
Early solo start in good conditions. Wet underfoot then a gruesome climb up the western side. Best to avoid the scree as much as possible - the grass is much easier. Great views. Headed to Dearg Mhor.bolton05/10/2018
Best day of the week in Shiel Bridge. Did a circuit and walked back on the road.iansm14/09/2018
With Sue from carpark on bend nr Slig. Very wet and windy worst day od trip to Islands. Followed river round to Coire na Sgai'rde and up from belach. difficult day to stand up on scree. Horizontal rain.Frank09/09/2018

Very sunny, very hot, very steep scree - almost torture and brutality. Hazy views despite sun.Jhimmy02/06/2018
Glamaig (Sgurr Mhairi) and An Coileach from A87 near Loch Sligachan. Cloudy, but bright day with some blue sky.knarf25/04/2018
CK SheilaS07/04/2018
From the road to the north and a very steep climb to the summit of An Coilleach then a pleasant walk along the ridge to the main summit, Sgurr Mhairi. Windy again so dropped back to bealach between the two, down easily to the west and worked our way to join the road at our start point. A good route back.dickscroop28/09/2017
anticlockwise circuit from Sligachan south for 2.5 km up Allt na Measarroch, up north on to Ciche na Beinne Deirge, over Beinn Dearg Mheadhonach, BD Mhor, out to An Coileach and finally back along the beautifull grassy ridge to Glamaig summit, Sgurr Mhairivegibagger04/06/2017
Done with GHC from the Slig, very steep ascent form the bealach (1hr), but only 20mins back down the scree!Play2End03/06/2017
On a round from Slig with Steve Smith. Nice scree run down to the col from BD Mhor and ascent not as step as perceived from the previous summit. On to the other end of Glamaig - An Coileach - before an interesting descent down Corie na h Airighe.jonglew07/05/2017
On a very clear day ascended from west managing to avoid most of the scree. Carried on to then do Beinn Dearg Mhor & Beinn Dearg Mheadhonachduchally18/06/2016

Final summit of Glamaig horseshoe from Sligachan. Steep, tiring ascent on scree from bealach, although fun on way down. In and out of cloud at summit, good views of Black Cuillin when out of cloud.quadbarrel17/10/2013
MMC Skye weekend at Carbost Old Inn. Solo walk from Glamaig to Marsco.DK and Kevin did the reverse of my walk. Sunny and dry. Much of Black Cullin in whispy mist. 7 1/2 hours.alexmaclennan14/09/2013
Week in Skye with Mum. Cloudy and wet all day so did the Beinn Deargs and Glamaig - fairly big walk! Lovely ascent up Druim na Ruaige, horrible scree coming off NW end of BD Mhor, Glamaig from the bealach only slightly better, then back down Allt Daraich for miserable bogtrot back to hotel.Mark Jackson15/07/2013

BD Mheadhonach, BD Mhor and Glamaig from the Slig. From Mhor the ascent looked intimidating and only got worse after the knee-knackering descent to the bwlch. Worth the slog up though, phenomenal views over the coast.Jake99424/07/2008

Parked below hill on Sligachan end. Quite a flog up. Descended via a subsidiary peak An Coileach and down scree. Nice day once the clag had lifted.Aye Jimmy27/07/2001
Transcuillin attempt: Coruisk to Broadford. Peak #63. Bailed after An Coileach #64 when the storm hit, finished at A87 layby between 2 bridges (NG536265), 37.5mi, 28,500ft ascent. Beinn na Caillich #70 was the plan.RHW18/07/2001
On Sconser-A'Coileach-Sgurr Mhairi-Beinn Dearg Mhor-Beinn Dearg Mheadhonach-Sligachan walk, with brother Pete. After a steep slog, this route of ascent gave a nice walk on the summit ridge of Glamaig to teach the highest point. Clear here, cloud on Black Cuillin.pwheeler20/05/2001
MC JC. Scorchio! Hottest day yet of a hot week. Climbed steep west ridhe from Sligachan. Ran the scree down to the Beallach na Sgairde. My 50th Corbett. Celebratory pepperami on top!Martin6610/05/2001

Glamaig to conclude a fortnight in the Hebrides RHW12/06/1993
From Sligachan. Seemingly vertical grass, moss and scree to top at 15.00. That Gurkha who ran up in 37 minutes either didn't have a watch, couldn't tell the time or didn't get to the top! I took 4 hours up and back.arranc31/05/1992
Ascended from the Sligachan via Beinn Dearg Mheadhonach and Beinn Dearg Mhor. Descended west to return.JohnW27/03/1989
Beinn Dearg Mheadhonach - Beinn Dearg Mhor - Glamaig round from The Slig.Eddie29/07/1987
Camping at a busy 'new' campsite again at Slig.rainy start slowly cleared so with Colin & Dave went up Mheadhonach. The next climb up Beinn Dherh Mhor looked loose and nasty so stupidly we contoured across the loose shifting angular screes on west side of the hill to reach the Glamaig bealach with relief. I alone then attacked the 1100 feet of scree climb with relish up Glamaig. I tried to match the famous story of a Ghurka's rapid descent in 1889 to Slig bar (18 mins from summit after 37 mins up.) I went tumbling and sliding down scree reaching the road in 20 mins from the top. but then still had the hotel.Chris Pearson20/07/1986
