I once dropped into the coire on Beinn Tarsuinn and camped by the lochan, which was a nice spot about half way round.

You can go in from Lochivroan bothy although its a bit awkward to include Beinn a'chlaidheimh. No serious river crossings though but you do get to go up the wee scramble on Sgur Dubh and descend the Sgurr Ban slabs.

Possibly from Poolewe or Heights of Kinlochewe, set up camp somewhere around A'Mhaighdean, maybe do this hill and Ruadh-stac Mor the same day, (less daylight now though, assuming you are planning to do this soon) and next day do the other 4. Just thinking of ways to avoid lugging camping gear around all day whilst actually doing the hills, obviously depends how lightweight you are going.

Another option is to start from Kinlochewe and stay at Shenavall, doing the three easternmost on day one. Then walk out back to Kinlochewe  over the westernmost three on day two.

I camped near Larachantivore when I went there, the thing I remember best (cloud stayed down for 2 days) was beautiful alpenglow views of An Teallach.

Yep, that's where we stopped when we did the round - nice place for a night out, if the weather's alright.

We even had a skinny dip before breakfast!

I’ve just been in there the other day. The rives are very low at the moment, although the ground is as saturated as ever!

After walking in from Dundonell, I spent the night by the river upstream from Sheneval, and after some minor bog bashing, ended up following a really nice stalkers path up to the beallach between Ruadh Stac Mòr and A’Mheaghdean, which was a very fine way of approaching them. The path talkes a great route up through the coire.

A really nice route, recommended. I managed to get back to Glasgow before 11pm too which was a bonus.

We did them over 2 days, including the Tops, camping at Carnmore. It's a long way over the col to the first hill (almost all the way to Shenavall) but you're then heading roughly towards the finish for the rest of the day.

Don't know when you're planning this trip for but Shenavall is not available until 20th Oct. Stalking season.
