R Superb trip v long but clagged windy wet! Richard Tait30/04/2023
Beinn an Eoin & Baosbheinn from by the green building on the A832, with Jon & John. A day of blue skies and a cool breeze made for a perfect outing of these two - following the track up to around 400m, then striking off up Baosbheinn via An Reidh-choire, then over to the summit. Headed SE across Ceann Beag and descended SE to the head of Loch na h-Oidhche and had lunch in front of the (closed) bothy. Headed slightly NW to avoid any crags whilst ascending the steep Beinn an Eoin. Stopped at summit for photos and then followed the ridge NW to the end and descended back down to the path back out to the A832. Tiring but rewarding day - total time 7h 56min.mproudfoot22/04/2023
Round of Baosbheinn, ascending to main summit from north end of Loch na h-Oidhche and then following ridge northward to Creag an Fhithichrjf3531/07/2022
From tent at stepping stones. Stayed north of the artificial cut, crossing of main stream easy then easily straight up to ridge just south of Creag an Fhithich, Up to tis top, good photos then south along the ridge over Baosbheinn N top, main top, south top and on to Ceann Deag. Returned by heading just east of north to cross streak at loch out let and down track to tent. Boots dry at akll stream xcriossings with any difficulty.dickscroop28/04/2022
From parking at Am Feur-Loch. Up the track. Stepping stones over the stream 1km from Loch na h-Oidhche were clear of the water, an improvement on my previous visit. Crossed the river not far from the loch outflow, couldn't avoid getting slightly wet feet. Generally good terrain past An Reidh-choire, then aimed for the notch in the ridge at height 805m. Then a lovely albeit misty path to the summit through the superb easy, grippy sandstone, no scrambling. Sadly limited views at the summit, it cleared on the way down of course. Returned via a similar route but taking in a visit to the very unusual oddity where the river bifurcates at 884676. Last Marilyn in 13A.Owen B20/06/2021

Superb mountain ridge with several tops. Cycled from Red Barn to deer fence but this didn't save much time to help me add extra Marilyns to the day. However, Baosbheinn was much too good to hurry and has some of the best wild views of Torridonian mts.pwheeler26/05/2009

With Rhona Fraser. From car park at Victoria Falls. Walked up the track through forest and then open slopes to spillway on Loch Garbhaig (latter part of track not shown on map). Contoured to the west of the loch and ~SW to meet a track (surprisingly wide) which comes up from An Feur Loch. Followed the track for a short distance, crossing the burn branch which descends to Loch Garbhaig. The burn splits a short distance higher up. Climbed up the NNE ridge of Baosbheinn to reach the summit. There were some pleasant bits of scrambling on the way up. Continued to Beinn an Eoin.pwbellarby11/05/1996
