Your pics make it look very appealing indeed, though I must say that lots of loose rock dampens the appeal somewhat - the (unroped) scrambler's nightmare! Not so enthusiastic about the green stuff either, especially if it's soggy. That's part of the reason I love the Cuillins.
Still, hope I get a chance to check it out. Thanks for reporting on these.
BTW, I've heard of stick insects, but not rock insects, particularly not one the size of that beast on the trig point on Sgurr a' Chaorachain - pretty impressive

I dug up a couple of photos of our route up An Carn - definitely easier, less steep, but there is plenty of easy scrambling to enjoy, so maybe for those not so brave this would be a more "friendly" option. Still offers lots of fun and fantastic views. Hope you don't mind me adding my snaps here.
The tower from below - we went up the middle section, straight to the top of the cliffs:
The final part of the ascent, some good easy scrambling, but it can be avoided on grassy slopes:
You can make it as easy or as hard as you wish
I remember when we reached the top of the cliffs, we met some other walkers who went up the easy route (via Coire an Fhamair) and they gazed at us as if we were totally bonkers... Obviously this route looks much worse from below than it really is

Beinn Bhan and its corries are just amazing.
Visited it last year via the WH route and this year I am planning to have a closer look to Coire na Poite and A´Chioch.
You are referring to a book in your report, which gave you information about the route up A´Chioch. Could you tell me which book this was?
