Took bus Strontian to Sallachan 978627 (9:55). Walked up road & path up glen, then struck up NE ridge to trig point and then summit of B Leamhain (11:15). Down NW ridge for abt 1 km till crags eased then down to tussocky col (12:00). Overcast but dry. Long ascent to Sgorr Mhic Eacharna (13:10), then via deep col to Beinn Bheag (14:10). Fine undulating rocky ridge with great views of Garbh Bheinn. Finally down to col en route to Sg nan Cnamh; long slabby then rocky ridge led to summit (15:50). Continued ENE, following the long watercourse down to Ceann a Chreagain (ruin). Weather had been overcast but dry; drizzle began on descent. River low so fordable but rocks v slippery. Walked through woods back to Ariundle car park (18:10) and cycled back to car at Strontian.dbb15/06/2015

Did the wonderful round of Coire an Iubhair, over the Grahams to the E first. Followed the path up the glen for a short way & then forced a way up on to Druim an Iubhair. This was tedious but worth it once we were up. Followed the broad ridge along to Sgorr Mhic Eacharna (Graham #50) & then round the increasingly rough ground to Beinn Bheag. From here, continued along to the minor tops at 692m & 682m & then dropped straight down to the bealach. Ascended a wet gully which looked easier from the bottom than it actually was: steep, slippery & loose at its narrowest point but then easier after that. Wound our way round the rough stuff to the summit & a terrific view before following the long SE ridge down to the starting point. This round didn't do my knees much good but it was worth it!NotReallyABagger10/09/2014

Parked at mouth of Coire an-Iubhair. Track for 400m, followed electric fence steeply uphill to bear right over rough tussock. Clambering up through boulder outcrops and on roof angle stuff to the wide grass ridge, bear left to a continuing increase in height, a long mile onto more stony ground and to top at 11.00.
