Weather was fantastic today. Meall Corranaich and Meall a'Choire Leith. Didn't see a single walker today. Had both mountains all to myself. It was a bit swampy but nowhere near as bad as Beinn Heasgarnich yesterday. Views were incredible.tsharp19/09/2019 Seriously boggy first hour and lastCrib Goch18/09/2019

Out and back from Meall Corranaich, then down main path through Coire Odhar. Clear, mostly sunny, sweltering when the breeze dropped occasionally.Jon F25/05/2018
From Ben Lawers Car Park (NN 60865 37694). Long but easy approach to the col at NN 62083 40775. Steepish ascent to summit of Meall Corranaich, narrow but clear path, very windy on top. Clear path along the north ridge to Meall a' Choire Leith. Didn't fancy the boggy descent to the Lochan na Lairige road so returned via the same route back over Meall Corranaich.david23020107/05/2018

Meall Corranaich and Meall a'Choire Leith from Lochan na Lairige.rhalstead08/09/2013
Completed alongwith rest of Ben Lawers ridge. Featureless rounded summit so cairn took a while to reach. Descent to Lochan na Lairige steep initially then boggy.quadbarrel25/08/2013
From the north end of Lochan na Lairige with Bill and Andy. Crossed Allt Glean Da-Eig near ruined Shielings despite and argument with my colleagues who wished to descend to the intake thus losing height only to have to re climb it. Advised I would meet them on the top. We did eventually kiss and make up later in the walk. A thin path goes straight to the top on the south flank by Coire Gorm.mick28/07/2013

Second of the day. Glorious weather, sunny and calm.Play2End18/02/2013
From cairn at road highpoint just north of Lochan na Lairige, with Meall nan Maigheach - good walk, & arguably a better combo than the traditional one with Meall Corranaich. Remarkably little snow for early January.milngavie_kenny05/01/2013
