Solo during a week in Ardgour & Sunart. From Resipole campsite up the east bank of the river. Clear path all the way up the hill & a grand view from the summit. Worth waiting for a clear day.NotReallyABagger03/10/2019
Respect to Resipol campsite who offer free parking by their reception. Followed track to east of Allt Mhic Chiarain which then evolves into a foot path. This has really developed since my first ascent over 20 years ago!BaggerGutt18/07/2019
From Ariundle, along the miners track to Beinn Resipol (fab views to the Islands), down the crags to Beinn an Albannaich, then picked our way over to its South Top and Creag an Eighich, before descending down to the Allt Camas a Choirce, then the slog up to Beinn a Chaorainn via its south top - which gives easy access back to the Miners track. Pretty easy going in dry, sunny conditions, would be tough in rain and mist - 5.5hrs in total.summitter12/05/2019
Cycling trip to Ardnamurchaniansm09/05/2019
From Beinn Mhor hotel up the very good trackn then pretty pathless across to east ridge of Resipol where we disappeared into the cloud and stayed there. No problem to summit but in thick cloud and rain lost line on way down on what appears(in cloud at Least) to be a fairly complicated ridge. Finished up abandoning trying to find the line and cut down south to join the road at Ranachan - a lot of bracken made it hard going.dickscroop31/10/2018

I walked up from Resipole camp site. It was a good path all the way to the top. There were a few fell runners that overtook me. I met 2 couples one from County Durham I had a good chat to on the way down probably a good 20 minutes. When I started the walk it was clear blue skies but a bank of cloud came in just before I reached the summit. Luckily it cleared to give stunning views to the east with all the main summits on the western side of Scotland visible from Ben Cruachan to Ben Nevis and northwards. Wildlife was sparse just Meadow Pipits and Ravens on the hill. I did see Stonechats lower down. Time taken including stops 4hours 22 minutes. Was pleased to get down as my Achilles started to hurt following a tear at the start of June.isabelle01/07/2018

Early start up the miners track from Ariundle as rain forecast at 2pm. Fresh snow made the eastern slopes hard work, but the top ridge was enjoyable. View from the summit but sky was very dark. Made it back just as rain was starting well pleased with ourselves.mindlessflogger24/02/2017
With four other XXL club members from the friendly campsite at Resipol. Very straightforward.Phreerunner31/07/2016
A warm and sunny ascent today. Good views from the top. Only saw two other people all day and had the top to myself.Walker Dan31/05/2016
With M. Staying in Strontian (supposedly pine marten but didn't see it). Fairly straightforward walk from caravan park, a bit misty.douglas_easton22/05/2016
After snow the previous day and overnight we decide to ascend. Clear blue and cold - we start from Loch Sunart (Beinn Resipol Caravan Site) Wood to rear then follow Allt Mhic Chiara to open country and the valley below the main summit. Paths not visible in the snowy landscape. Having been caught up by the walkers behind we map a route to the summit and continue up together. Treated to 360 degree view of snowy peaks all around breath-taking and sublime. Butties consumed we head back slowly.briandavies29/04/2016
From Resipole caravan site (9;15) followed path and track which wound up the glen through 2 gates and to a third at 741652. From here a path, mostly good but finally faint followed S bank of stream to top of E ridge. Cloud down but dry. Finish 14:00dbb16/06/2015

Straightforward ascent in the mist up the boggy path from Resipole Holiday Park. Shame to not catch any views. Will have to return!bowlesy26/08/2013
Misty on top. Stump of trig pillar seemed a lot closer than 8m from the cairnKevPalmer15/07/2013
Resipole to Strontian over Beinn Resipol, great walk: beautiful way up, less attractive down but still satisfying, giving the entire summit ridge. My brother cycled back to recover the car while I prepared dinner (we rented a bungalow next to the Ben View hotel, great for exploring this area)pwheeler19/05/2013
