11am, light cloud, 9 degrees, calm at Sligachan. Good ridge walking, mountains left and right. On to Ciche na Beinn Deirge.Wycombe Wanderer25/03/2019
From Beinn Dearg Mhor. Good underfoot. Headed back to Sligachan down the good path on the Drum na Ruaige ridge. Great, clear conditions. Took just over 5 hours including Glamaig and Beinn Dearg Mhor.bolton05/10/2018
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.dickscroop03/06/2018

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

From Sligachan with Dearg Mhor and Glamaig. Pleasant summit ridge.Jake99424/07/2008
Good path to Elgol for 3/4m then uphill over wet moor to foot of WDP at start of ridge. Peaty but good path up on ridge for a mile. Tundra like easy going underfoot. Final clamber over small scree on zig zags for 300'. To top at 13.00. Highest point was a smaller cairn 100m to S. to Dearg Mhor.arranc08/10/2007

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
