From Inverchorran. Significant peat hags if climbing out of glen too early. Descended to S to pick-up stalkers path for descent back into Gleann Chorainn.benalder28415/04/2017

Bac an Eich from Inverchoran. Approached Bac an Eich via Sgurr Toll Lochain(slippery scramble up vegetated rocks, probably not the best line), Creag Coire na Feola, then careful route to Meall Buidhe (would be tricky descent in mist) and descent back into Gleann Chorainn.RobertP04/07/2016
What a great hill. From Inverchoran.Martin R13/05/2015
Lovely day, great views, Glen Chorrain route back was a pleasantly easy walk.oatcake17/04/2015
Wind on top was awful.Rive crossing just as bad !ARM01/03/2015
From Inverchoran. Attempt at Beinn Mheadhoin was ended by polite advice from a stalker, Bac an Eich was the only alternative that did not involve returning to car. An unmarked but decent enough track runs NW of the river, stayed on track then followed north bank as far as Loch Toll Lochain. Many peat hags, a higher route would have been better. Sunny day but cold east wind. Up steep NE face, down easy SE ridge before steep south east descent back into Gleann Chorainn.Topographer5725/08/2014
From Strathconon roadhead. An Sidhean, E Top, Sgurr Coire nan Eun, Meall Innis na Sine, Creag Coire na Foela, Bac an Eich, Meall Buidhe. Hot & sunny.jimbloomer10/07/2013

W Jenx. Parked on road above Inverchoran, thru stalkers lodge and up Gleann Chorainn, off after woods and steep up hill to Mhadaidh-ruaidh. Rough ground to Meall Buidhe. Drop to col before steeps to summit of Bac an Eich. Top of Coire Feola before down to lonely Corriefeol and 6km road walk back.nordicstar05/05/2013

Trig revisit. Quick bag of Mhuilinn then rest of day here. Car park on N shore of loch, good track to Corriefeol (ruins), Meall Buidhe, Bac an Eich, Creag Coire na Feola (where I met an English guy taking a year out volunteering for BTCV and hillwalking!), Meall Innis na Sine then steeply down to the path out (having done the other Corbett years ago). Mostly in cloud but nice lighting on the loch at the finish.RHW14/02/2010

From Inverchoran deer farm. Carried Arran across a deer grid over the river 10' below. On wide access track for 1 1/2 miles to path over river. Uphill on rising traverse over heather and grass hillside. Charming gorge where loch outflow comes downhill. Steeply up by stream to heathery hags and a very steep mossy ascent to the left to bypass crags. Ptarmigan. Into wind for last 3/4 mile. Top at 11.40. Hot water from flask - forgot to put the coffee in!arranc30/05/1994
After orienteering at Aultgowrie. I went up Strath Conon to the car park at the end of Loch Beannacharain. I walked to Corriefeol (ruin) and steeply up almost straight to the summit of Bac an Eich. I descended by going approximately westwards to join the footpath through Coire Mhòraigein. It was done in fast time, significantly less than indicated by Naismith’s formula.pwbellarby27/06/1993
