With the Winter vehicular access arrangement defunct, had to cycle up to NH226390 and camped near the ford - very cold night. Standard route up to Loch Toll a'Mhuic, but all exits had debris from avalanches or cornice collapse, so went E via Gob a' Chairn, then to Sgurr Fhuar-thuill, Craig Ghorm a'Bhealaich, Sgurr a'Choire Ghlais, down S ridge to col at NH261416, then W over shoulder of Gob a'Chairn to join uptrack. De-camped and cycled back to Inchmore.Isbjorn Winter Round07/03/2022
From the car park at the Glen Strathfarre Sgurr na Ruaidhe, Carn nan Gobhar, Sgurr a Choire Ghlais, Creag Ghorm a Bhealaich, Sgurr Fhuar-thuill and Sgurr na Fearstaig. 15.5 miles, in cloud the whole time and very windy. Exhausting walk, especially having to run the last 4 miles to get out of the park on time.Lazylizzie25/09/2021

A long day in the wilds of Strathfarrar - after clambering out of a frost-covered tent in Roy Bridge at 5am, followed by a 1.5hr drive up to the entrance gate into Glen Strathfarrar, I parked up and cycled the 8miles through the glen to the end point of the (clockwise) munro circuit. Then a 15.5 mile walk with nearly 1700m/ 5500ft of ascent over the four munros, I had a decent dose of the jelly legs by the time I got back to the bike. Another 8 mile ride back out of the glen, and the car was a welcome sight. Great day up on the ridge though - one to remember!mproudfoot27/09/2020

En route to RBS HWC Kintail weekend. I stayed overnight at Inverness YH. I changed in car whilst waiting for gate to glen to open at 0900. Midges at car parking space again. Cloud cover on tops but cleared occasionally, especially once I was on way down. Good stalkers path up onto ridge. I visited tops in relatively short time. No view from most westerly top. Up and down in good time and reached Kintail early. No ill effects from back, hip, knee except a little pain in knee whilst driving.langskill24/08/2012
