From Strawberry Cottage with a friend. Having ascended Stob Coire na Cloiche we followed the ridge to Sgùrr nan Ceathreamhnan. We continued to the W Top. I used a compass to navigate off over point 910m, Beinn-an t-Socaich. Lower down we were near Allt Beithe Garbh. We followed a path and track to again reach Alltbeithe. Here we had more tea to drink and invited the warden, Jill, to come to Strawberry Cottage that night, which she did.pwbellarby25/10/2006

Solo from the outdoor centre near Morvich on a sunny & hot day. Over Bealach an Sgairne, rounded end of Loch a'Bhealaich & then stupidly traversed under summit of Sgurr Gaorsaic which meant another trip some years later. Up S spur to Sgurr nan Ceathreamhnan W top & then the main summit. Then the out & back to Mullach na Dheiragain which did provide some fine views. Turned E along the ridge as far as An Socach. Then dropped down to the youth hostel & the very pleasant walk back out to Morvich.NotReallyABagger30/08/2001
