Kintail Brothers and Sisters ridge from Ault a' Chruinn to Cluanie Innhummusg19/07/2023
Last hill summited on Five Sisters Ridge before descending ridge NW on good path, then picking up excellent path down east side of Glen Croe to second car at Ault a Chruinn. NB Glen Croe path goes up to col N of Bhuidhe so, in hindsight, would have been easy to have continued to the Hump Sgurr na Moraich....Denise 26/04/2023

on traverse of 5 sistersThearlaichdubh13/05/2009
Partly with a friend. Frustrating day. Wanted to traverse some of Five Sisters of Kintail by starting SE end of Loch Shiel and going as far as Bealach an Làpain. At SE end of Loch Shiel there was a bridge marked on the map across the river, but when we got to it we realised it was too dilapidated and dangerous to use. We then went to Shiel Bridge. We agreed to go separately to Sgùrr Fhuaran. I thought I would climb over Sgùrr an t-Searraich. However, I met thick bracken and brambles and so retreated, wasting 50 minutes. I went SE for a little way and then climbed up towards Sgùrr an t-Searraich, contoured below its summit to reach the col with Beinn Bhuidhe. I went up the WNW ridge of Beinn Bhuidhe, passing over a minor top. I reached the summit of Beinn Bhuidhe, continuing to Sgùrr nan Saighead and Sgùrr Fhuaran.pwbellarby17/08/2007
