Really just the Walk Highlands route in reverse. However we failed to go through the gate at the bottom of the Allt na Feola so we went over a ladder stile and followed fence until it met the path at 350m. Probably harder this way. No views, cold for July. Just Sgurr nan Ceannaichean and Moruisg.Lynnebe01/07/2024

SLOP, SLOP, SLOP, from the layby on the A890 (NH081520). FP start after rly br is very indistinct - look for small cairn up and R, then it is unrelentingly direct upIsbjorn 3rd Round30/05/2024
Rain and mist all through the ascent, from A890 nr Craig, though light winds. Ground extremely soggy. Good path petered out about 800m. Dropped below mist on descent, so some greyish views of Glen Carron. 3h round trip.NorfolkPT2129/05/2024
From Stag Lodge with Rob, Pete, Mike we walked along the road to cross river by bridge and go under railway before commencing a 2.5 hour steep ascent up grassy heather slopes. The long ridge was in mist we climbed to summit plateau with its 3 cairns the most impressive being a subsidiary and least impressive being the main one. We went in to traverse the ridge top visiting Sgurr nan Ceachain before finding the link to the stalkerís path. The tops were continuously shrouded in mist. Careful map reading found the descent to the stalkerís path and the long descent through warming and drying conditions to road. A clash of head to girder of rail bridge caused disproportionate damage to my head but did not slow us on our 3 k road walk to stag lodge.david.walker4026/05/2024

Bike and hike via Glenuaig Lodge. Up and down a stalker's path. From the bottom of the path, the beginning is indistinct but the higher zigzags can clearly be seen. Then out as far as the Far East top for good views down the northern cliffs.Pete R16/04/2023

with Elizabeth. Steep up a path through grass and heather, onto summit and along grassy slopes to Sgurr nan Ceannaichean, down spur to path beside river. Very nice walk.Cumbrianexile15/04/2022

From Bearnaes bothy - log walk out E to bealach then descended to wire bridge. Headed up to Glenuaig Lodge then steep ascent up good path. Gradient eases towards summit. Min snow left. Weather still fab - was hot in the sun. Descended north then west hoping to cross country to track back to Craig but hampered by a new looking deer fence and ended back at the road some 5k to the E. Not an ideal end.wychwood21/03/2022
Hot day but straightforward Sherpa shuffle up the hill. Recognised by SW on way up. Late start but plenty of light. With Gmac xelizyanne24/07/2021

Solo clockwise route also taking in the corbett Sgurr nan Ceannaichean. Stayed dry, but was claggy above 600m all morning. 4h 43m total walking.mproudfoot02/11/2020
Waited in the bunkhouse at Ledgowan for it to stop raining - it didn't! Set off from Glencarron, up a very wet slope and then on to Sgurr nan Ceannaichan, before descending to the sound of rutting deer to Glencarron.jigglybones27/10/2020
Cimbed directly from the layby on the A890, once on the summit, I just returned to the car, as I didn't fancy including the adjacent corbett. 04:35hrs all in, overcast with a very cold wind and light drizzle on the summit ridge.chillyman825/09/2020

good weather - intermittent cloud/sun, no rain, no wind! route straight up. there's a stalkers 'path' all the way - much the best route. very wet underfoot all the way and quite slide-y especially on way down. very steep mid section. poles essential if coming down same way.highlandchief04/07/2017
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
With Tony from Glen Carron. Traverse of Moruisg and Sgurr nan Ceannaichean. Managed to reach summits before it clouded over so good views of Torridon peaks and Skye.zoob03/06/2016
park on A890 and an easy path across the river under the railway and up. eventually you go over the crest and the path disappears but follow the hill up and meet a cairn on the east and cairn on the westAristotle Chip20/05/2016

A bit foggy on top, but I made sure I was at the correct cairn by visiting both!Play2End11/10/2014
Long steep ascent with little relief until the top is reached. Thin path if you can find it. Beware of new deer fences to protect the newly planted trees. Only a few gates I could see.Jhimmy27/06/2014
