|From Glamaig and much easier up to this one than I thought it would be after a rapid descent from the former. Headed south to the Sim. Solo.||bolton||05/10/2018|
|A morning round from the road to the north: Beinn Dearg Mhor, Beinn Dearg Mheadhonach and down by scree from near the col between them, quite step but OK. Started out with cloud down to road level, found I had cracked my compass and lost the fluid so not working. Guessed I would be Ok for a straightforward route so ploughed up through the cloud only to come out into glorious sun at about 550 metres, a sea of cloud below me with 7 'island' peaks sticking up througnh it, a classic temperature inversion - brilliant and solved my compass problem.||dickscroop||03/06/2018|
|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 Mhairi||vegibagger||04/06/2017|

|Did after Glamaig. Superb day on the hills.||duchally||18/06/2016|
|M on very hot and breezy day from A87 car park. J and O accompanied up SE side of the cone, but too hot for O the dog.
Calm on top. Great views to Glamaig. Continued round to Beinn Dearg Mheadhonach. Much easier walking. Proceeded E from top for 100m and descended N down compacted scree gulley. Base covered in large stoned embedded in heather, but interesting return route to car.||Martin66||11/05/2016|
|Solo jog, with BDM. Rainbow and broken spectre on the summit.||amswanston||01/05/2016|
|Sligachan, Sròn a' Bhealain, Beinn Dearg Mhór, Beinn Dearg Mheadhonach, drop down scree before Cìche na Beinne Deirge into Coire Dubh Measarroch, return via Glen Sligachan. Slow day, with Fellwanderers.||Edgemaster||29/03/2015|
|Completed whilst doing Glamaig horseshoe. Good views all round, with substantial amounts of cloud inversion. Great view to Black Cuillin. Descent towards Glamaig tricky to find path.||quadbarrel||17/10/2013|
|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.||alexmaclennan||14/09/2013|
|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 Jackson||15/07/2013|
