From bridge over the Grudie at 20M. Up to lochan and on to summit. Again great views. Tried more westerly route back but just as rough. From Grudie bridge took route over north side of Sithean Mor. Back at car after 340 mins for Ghlas and Akie.Coinneach25/06/2024
Ferry, then short bus ride to the bridge at the 66m spot height. From there an atv track, muddy but useful, to bealaich between Beinn an Amair and the 241m spot height. Over a series of false summits to the top. Back in time to walk down to the ferry.iangalbraith30/08/2023
From parking at the telephone box close to the bridge with D. Dave and CM. Headed to the bridge at 350628 which is in a very pleasant area with great views. Quite good underfoot as I expected it to be far more difficult. Did the Tump on return.bolton29/03/2023
Parked by the phone box on the A838. Over bridge and through gate on to open boggy moorland. Super spot by the footbridge before the pull up easy-angled slopes. Great views from summit. With Chris & Phil.Dangerous Dave29/03/2023
9.15 Ferry got dropped off at the highpoint of the road. Up to the summit in 30 minutes in the direction of where the fence meets the road. Then off to Fashven past the pink tank and up the middle gully, then down the ridge to the col and up Ben Akie, then out over Sithean Mor via a track and various gates to the road by the footbridge 363617 where we had a 2nd car parked. 10.9 miles, 2500ft of climbing out about 7.5hrs from leaving the bus.JulieB21/06/2022
First of five on a very long walk, starting at the telephone box/ bridge having left bike at Gaulin House. Dry underfoot to footbridge the up the slopes, unremarkable except the fine views. Onto Fashven.N.Morters03/06/2022
The ferry starts at 9.15 and finishes at 3.30 which would make too short a day. Therefore, I started from Lochan na Glamhaichd, just space to squeeze the car off the road next to a little bridge without blocking track or passing place. Up the easy ATV track to Am Bealach, though gate and down track less easily to Bun nan Tri-allt (no bridge), then track continues easily towards Maovally Beag. Off piste through gap between M Beag and Mor, then contour to Fashven bealach and up to top. Lovely sandstone hill, gorgeous views. Down SE ridge, cross river and join ATV track which expires part way up Ben Akie but easy to top. Down rough stuff, contour Maovally Mor low down, then along river to rejoin ATV track.Gill02/06/2022
Check for stalking pls. From main road, tuck in carů.follow river towards sea. Dont cross open land as this will disturb stags. Look for a wee bridge across deep and fast stream.VerySlowPlodder17/10/2021
Dropped at HP on return from CW tour. Easy ascent through bomb craters and spent ordnance to top of Sgribhis-bheinn. Returned to car at head of Kyle of Durness via Maovally, Fashven, Ben Akie and Sithean Mor. A long clear and warm day without the worry of catching last ferry.lordtonult06/06/2021
Final Marilyn of section 16 for me. Been meaning to do this one for ages. Parked by the phone box at NC 360 605, then went south over bridge then headed fairly directly for the bridge at NC 349 628 then up to the summit. Ground relatively dry (still boggy) and managed to stay below the cloud all day. Had nice views of the Cape Wrath hills and I could see the red warning flags flying for Operation Joint Warrier to the north of the summit. This route was longer than if I'd used the wee ferry over the Kyle but it meant that I could avoid people and stay COVID secure :-) Didn't see a sole on the hill all day but apparently Norman Wares was on the hills to my west in the clag today.assynt_bob16/05/2021
As the ferry was not running due to Covid 19 I approached via the two bridges to the South. Then on to the nearby Tump, and Beinn an Amair.NormanW09/07/2020
With GN. From bridge at Northern end of A838, around coast. Then direct line to top.trimarc207/05/2019
4 of 6: From Fashven.ChrisR08/06/2018
Arrived at bridge near 66m spot height 2 hrs before last ferry. Decided to set out but turn back if I did not reach summit in 1 hr. Made it with 5 mins to spare. Haze mostly descended into glens leaving a fine evening. Only passenger on last ferry.Topographer5731/05/2018
From the ferry walked along the road to NC 363 665 and then headed west below Beinn an Amair and to the north of point 241 on to the summit. Then on to Fashven ...martin_hall18/05/2018
Did it the same way as Squiz. A great day, great views. Going good. Up and down in 3 hours.grumpy21/05/2017
A good walk around the 5 more northerly Marilyns. This one finished the round then back to the road and paid a load of cash to be picked up a bit late (7.00pm) by the ferryman.jenx18/06/2016
Last of our circuit of Wrath Marilyns from ferry. Really easy descent to bridge on good ATV track. Good way up too.nordicstar18/06/2016

With Ghlas-Bheinn. Crossed bridge to cottage W of A838. Ground was Ok for most part. Bridge over burn on way back no longer there but managed to cross it. Be a problem if in spate.AndrewFinnimore25/08/2014
Climbed on exit from Kearvaig Bothy to head of Kyle - cross country from Inshore.Chris Peart25/11/2013
from Amair. Many rocky crags along a wet ridge. To a second top to the south, lower than the first. Drop down over wet moor grass and watery flat rice fields to pass around a 241m spot height and up again onto half mile broken ridge with hags separating sandstone outcrops. To top at 13.15. 5 stones in a small pile on top of a sandstone outcrop. Cloud base at 1200'arranc27/05/2009
