A 33.5km, 3 Munro epic at Glenuig, climbing Sgurr Choinnich, Sgurr a' Chaorachain & Maoile Lunndaidh. Tricky with 45mph gusts but a cracking day out.Chris Mac13/04/2019
From Craig to Glenuaig Lodge, then an ATV track leads from the lodge to the river, but there is no crossing point, so went back W until could splash across. Crossed An Crom-allt at NH 11255 46748 where a path climbs out, up the E bank, then peters out. Zig-zag'd up NW flank on heather, slime and greasy rocks, to Carn nam Fiaclan (no signs of other humans having used this often recommended route in texts) and on to summit. Because of the challenging river crossings, returned to Carn nam Fiaclan and descended over greasy rocks and then a fair path down W ridge to Drochaid Mhuillich, then down E flank of Sron na Frianich until could cross over and head for the plantation and back down to Craig.Isbjorn Winter Round21/02/2019
From Craig, walk/cycle to Pollan Buidhe, then walk to near Glenuaig Lodge, then across valley and up N ridge of Carn nam Fiaclan to summit, continuing to Creag Toll a'Choin and Maoile Lunndaidh, returning to Carn nam Fiaclan, descent of Fuar-tholl Beag to Drochaid Mhuilich, bivvyed by stream from corrie loch, then to summit of Sgurr a' Chaorachain via Sron na Frianich, return trip out to Bidean an Eoin Deirg, then across to Sgurr Choinnich, descending to Bealach Bhearnais and along path in valley back to Pollan Buidhe and thence to Craig.kdbennett18/05/2018

Solo. Single shot. No cam or GPS that I can find. Very windy day! :/ The cycle in is more of a push and even after pushing the track is hard going. V/ boggy start!

3 of 8: From Creag Toll a Choin.ChrisR13/06/2012
This peak eluded me on a previous excursion and appears to be permanently encased whenever I am near it in thick cloud and rain. I cycled up from Craig 50 mins to a forest site just before the bothy place then slogged up in the rain. Not pleasant and navigating around to summit was interesting. I found it and promptly descended afater a quick pic. Company: Soloiandesbottes11/05/2012
