From Kinloch Hourn via stalkers' path on W ridge - this goes higher than maps show to roughly 600m contour. On the way up Sgurr a' Mhaoraich.quadbarrel28/06/2021
Second day of a caravan trip to Corpach, near Fort William and I settled on a hike on the north side of Loch Quoich (called Cuaich on some maps). There is a surprisingly well-built path up and over Sgurr Coire nan Eiricheallach (891m) and to the large cairn on top of Sgurr A Mhaoraich (1027m), a Munro. There was cloud above 850m to start with, but this was lifting and by the time I made it to the summit, there were great views down Loch Hourn. I bagged the Munro Top of Sgurr A Mhaoraoch Beag (948m), then contoured across the southern slope of the Munro and down to Leac nan Gaidhseich, returning to the road at the newish turbine building and walked the roughly 4km back to the car. Dry all day, even in the cloud, 6hrs all in.chillyman829/05/2021

Drove round from Glen Shiel after a long day (Cluanie Ridge) previously. Started in the rain which didn't stop. Climbed from the dam via Sgurr Eiricheallach. Geaded too far west when descending meaning a long walk back along the road.jigglybones30/05/2019

Parked at the roadside to NW of Loch Coire Shubh. I climbed up to Sgùrr a Mhaoraich Beag, surprised to find there was a path for most of the way. Continued to the summit of Sgùrr a Mhaoraich. I went northwards over quite complex terrain. It was a bit misty. Reached the Corbett top of Sgùrr Thionail. Returned southwards for a bit and then crossed a corrie floor and climbed up to the 892m top of Am-Bàthaich. This top, which is the only top of Am-Bàthaich to have a height marked on the OS 1:50,000 map, is not the highest point of Am-Bàthaich. This is further along the summit ridge in a direction WSW. I followed the ridge to the highest point. I could see clearly that this was the highest point. I continued to the col between Sgùrr a Mhaoraich and Sgùrr a Mhaoraich Beag and eventually found my ascent route and followed it back to the car.pwbellarby09/08/2003
My 4th to last Munro with Smithy on a showery day with mist on the summit. Straightfoward ascent from Loch Quoich over the tops to the summit of Sgurr a'Mhaoriach. Went on to do its W top where a view briefly appeared & then for variety went N to the bealach & dropped E to follow Allt Coire a'Chaorain to join the track in Glen Quoich. This is a worthwhile diversion with a wild feel to it.NotReallyABagger02/05/2003

my first ascent, solo, overcast, climbed on the goc from a wild camp in gleann dubh lochan, followed the ally ban up, then broke out right to better ground and the summit of the minor top, 607 m. not a recommended route. continued up easier slopes to point 948 then onto the summit of sgurr mhaoraich, were there was a small snow flurry, picked up a rough path along the ridge over minor bumps to sgurr coire nan eiricheallach and the path down to loch quoich and my next camp.rum doodle 09/05/1998

On the way to Cairngorm Club meet at Barrisdale Bothy. With a club member from Loch Coire nan Cnàmh. We went along the path to the waterfall on Allt Coire nan Cnàmh, then up the western slopes of the valley and on to Sgurr a Mhaoraich Beag and Sgurr a Mhaoraich. We descended southwards and slightly west to join an unmarked path back to the starting point. There were good views to Skye etc on the ascent. There was mist on the highest part.pwbellarby10/07/1981
