From P at Ariundle Oakwood NNR. Sgurr Dhomhnuill then Sgurr na h-Ighinn. Quite a day out. With Bolton.ger21/10/2019
From the Ariundle car park. A very pleasant walk up to the old lead mines then over Drum Leac a'Sgiathain and its ups and downs. An easy rake to the north of Sgurr na h- Ighinn goes to the col then a steep climb to the summit with Ger.bolton21/10/2019

Final Corbett.ARM01/09/2017
Great wind shelter on the summit. But could not find the trig. Steep descent to Druim Garbh, but dry conditions underfoot so not too dodgy.summitter06/05/2017
Followed the miners track through the ancient oak woods to the mines. Couldn't cross the river as no footbridge and river was in spate, so walked up the valley to the col south of the summit. It was extremely windy here and thought about turning back, but after a rest behind a rock, went on and discovered the final ridge was very sheltered and enjoyable. Saw two golden eagles on the way back. With Pete and Jillmindlessflogger20/02/2017
With M. Long walk over undulating ridge, with steep drop and climb to finish.douglas_easton23/05/2016
Horseshoe route over Sgurr Dhomhnuill from high point in road to W. Complex route to Meall Loachan Mhic Gille Dhuibh, more easily to Druim Garbh, descent to col then very steep ascent to summit of Sgurr Dhomhnuill. Continued S along ridge to Sgurr Na h-Ighinn and descent W over Druim Leac a'Sgiathain then traverse to start point. Cold breeze but clouds above the tops.RobertP12/04/2016
From Arundle car park (10:20) cycled up track to 855654 (near ruin by river)(10:50). Climbed to upper track & old mine, then up ridge over Sg na h-Iguinn (12:50), down to col and up to Sg Dhomhnuill (13:25). Lovely day, fine views. Returned to col then descended E down steep grassy slope keeping R of burn to cross glen. Then traversed L, then up to col & broad rocky ridge to quartzite cairn on B na h-Uamha (15:45). Retraced steps westward and traversed Sg a Chaorainn (17:05), descending WNW down to col. Down SW to glen and followed river back to bike (18:40) and car (19:10). Fabulous long day in glorious weather with views to outer Hebs & Schiehallion.dbb14/06/2015

Lovely walk up through Ariundle woodlands, over Sgurr na h-Ighinn and working our way up the slopes to the top of Sgurr Dhomhnuill. We were going to descend the NW ridge but tricky ground in the teeth of a gale did not appeal so we went back down S and descended to Ariundle from the col, just an occasional buffeting there.pwheeler22/05/2014
Very pleasant out and back route from Ariundle. The forest at lower level is lovely.bowlesy09/05/2014

Perfect autumn day. Long walk-in from Ariundle car park, past the lead mines. then on upstream and onto a ledge to reach a minor col 400m south of the summit. Up, back to col and on to Sgurr a'Chaorainn.Topographer5711/10/2013
From Ariundle through the very pleasant woodlands with Shaky up to the old lead mine workings. Scaled Drium Leac a' Sgiathain & continued to Sgurr na h-Ighinn before dropping down to the col & ascending Sgurr Dhomhnuill using a variety of minor paths. It seems that cattle had been driven all the way up the ridge given the way in which the ground had been churned up, although we didn't see any all day. Returned the same way except for passing underneath Sgurr na h-Ighinn.NotReallyABagger08/08/2013

From Ariundle nature reserve. Pleasant walk on forest road in shade. Deer fence gate, small bridge to open moor. To old lead mine and struck across the valley around green dunlins onto Druim on broad upward ridge to an obvious green gulley to left of Ighinn and well worn path with many footprints.

With friend. From a camp in Glen Scaddle. We ascended the ENE ridge of Sgùrr Dhomhnuill. The weather was not so good as forecast, with some light rain. I went NW from summit of Sgurr Dhomhnuill to reach Druim Garbh a deleted Corbett. I came down via Gleann na Cloich Soochte. My friend went over Sgurr a Chaorainn and Beinn na h-Uamha. The latter is a Corbett I had previously ascended. We wondered if Sgurr a Chaorainn might be a Corbett too, since the reascent certainly exceeds 500 and there is a 760m contour ring. From the campsite walked out along Glen Scaddle.pwbellarby15/06/1997
