With Ian, from Moruisg.Dangerous Dave24/09/2018
From Beinn Tharsuinn, via Bealach Bhearnais. Across the Pollan Buidhe, then up the ziggiest-zaggiest path I know, much better than going straight up. Last 200m of ascent no path. West from the summit until easier going north then west around Creag an Ardaich back to the track, then back to Craig.Owen B08/07/2018
Meall an Fhliuchaird and Sgurr nan Ceannaichean from Craig. Simple walk to summit of Meallan Fhliuchaird, descent to col, then ascent of Sgurr nan Ceannaichean NW ridge (quite nice route), descent using stalkers path to Pollan Buidhe. Good views to Coulin Forest.RobertP03/07/2017
Moruisg + Sgurr nan Ceannaichean. Usual route, starting from layby on A890. Very wet underfoot. Broken cloud at top so views were not brilliant. Totally clear by the time I got back to car (typical). Nice walk though!tsharp21/04/2017
Cycled round from Craig; had planned to go up the stalkers' path, but didn't see it and instead took an off-piste route further east.Pete R05/08/2016

Lovely long ridge from the Munro to get to this. The route north back to the road is awkward and tiring.Play2End11/10/2014

6th – Solo. From Craig, follow the track along the Allt a Chonais, ascend S flank to summit and follow ridge round to Munro, descent down NW flank of Moruisg (as no longer had a map). Completed while it was still classified as a Munro as part of the walk including Moruisg. Snow above 750m, strong winds and light snow showers. The strong winds led to the added excitement of losing my only copy of the map on the summit plateau – leading to the most expensive map I have ever bought.RGibbs06/02/2011

Arrived from Moruisg then took the north ridge off and then east to the stalkers path. This was not the best path and so hacked cross country to the car park on the A890.garyhoney15/07/2009
2 of 2: From Moruisg.ChrisR20/03/2009
Walked in 9km from Craig and set up camp at Bealach. Following day completed Beinn Dearg, Cona Mheall, Meal nan Ceapraichean, Eididh nan Clach Geala, Am Faochagach + 1 Top, returning to camp, 26.3kn 2320m in 12.5hr.

After cycling in from Craig we did this then munro and Martin was so knackered from the cycling he crawled to this peak in the rain. Later it was declared a corbett much to his chagrin. Found it a bit boring not a peak I would return to with any desire. Company: The nearly beaten Martin Stewart.iandesbottes02/11/2007

Pleasant ridge walk from Moruisg. We enjoyed the descent, too- N ridge, fine corrie and a good path by the burn by recovering woodland. The last 300m were messy as the path disappeared into a bog. This may have changed- I'd guess more regeneration with deer fences to protect- get up to date info!pwheeler21/05/2006

Climbed in hot sunshine after Moruisg.Man of Kernow106/05/2002
Wandered up some years before it got measured to the last nanometre & demoted to Corbett status. Had crawled on to the summit of Moruisg on Hogmanay 1998 to avoid being blown off by the wind & had intended to continue here - no chance. So, with Shaky & Smithy, back on a much more benign day during a week at Gairloch. Started at Craig & walked round the back of the hill ascending by the rather vague stalkers path on S slopes.NotReallyABagger05/05/2002

Traverse to this Munro (well it was a Munro then) from Moruisg was very arduous in snow with nil viz at times. Descended south from here until we picked up track down the valley. A serious outing under the conditions.Aye Jimmy19/04/1995
self.Did when a Munro. Then later on TMS heighting.davidsbatty12/09/1993
With a friend. We went to where a non-existent car park is marked on map on road below Moruisg. Started at NH081521 and crossed the river and railway originally to reach Sgùrr nan Ceannaichean first. However, we were a little imprecise in navigation and took some compass bearings to establish our location. We were near the cliff which is marked on the map WNW of the summit of Moruisg so we climbed that first taking in some steep ground as practice. We proceeded to Sgùrr nan Ceannaichean before continuing to Maoile Lunndaidh.pwbellarby26/06/1993
