from CP on A82 Clachaig Inn (NN120563 approx.). Track to Glencoe Cottages. With Munro Sgurr na H-Ulaidh and associated tops. Allt na Muidhe no problem to cross after dropping off Meall Lighiche even after two days continuous rain. Crossed at NN 10582 54338carole engel27/05/2019

From the A82. Allt na Muidhe in spate so continued to near Bealach Easan before crossing. Followed fence posts north west, but very lumpy and rocky in places not helped by sudden very strong gusts.Owen B17/02/2019

Easy walk in but hard work up the steep grassy slopes with temperatures in the mid-20s. Return same way. Agree with Gill, the flowers on the north slopes are very good.milimana28/06/2018
3-summit walk. Parked at layby on road (7:20) and took track and path up glen; crossed river easily and ascended N ridge of Meall Lighiche - trackless up steep part. Pleasant ridge walk to summit (9:20). Down NW to col with Sg a'Choise. Up to top of ridge and across deer fence then steepening rocky ridge to summit (10:50). Back down ridge to col with Meall Mor, then up broad easy-angled ridge to summit overlooking Glencoe (12:25). Descended E directly to glen; very steep but feasible on route identified earlier from below. No path. Car 13:20. Weather closing in but dry with high cloud and good views with some drizzle later.dbb13/06/2018

Meall Ligiche and Meall an Aodainn from Glen Coe. Started overcast but clouds high, snowed while on top, but brightened on return. Excellent views to Sgurr na h-Ulaidh.RobertP15/04/2016

The northern ridge looked a bit too steep for my poor tired legs so went up the choire to the west, which was pleasant. Nice views from top. The North ridge did prove it would have been a bit brutal to climb as I descended it.Jhimmy04/10/2015
