With: hb; From Ballachulish, we walked past the primary school up Gleann an Fhiodh on a very good path to the prominent cairn. We crossed the River Laroch with some difficulty after all the recent rain, then gained the lovely south west ridge of Sgorr a'Choise which we followed to top. This ridge has losts of quartzite outcrops. Good views from the summit to the south. We descended over Meall a'Bhuige to the bealach then straight up the south west ridge of Meall Mor. There were more good views into Glencoe. We followed the ridge roud to the north west then descended to the new gate in the deer fence before picking a muddy route up to Am Meall. The descent north west back to the quarries through late flowering bluebells was delightful.Ian Baines03/06/2019

From Meall Lighiche.Descent much easier than expected. Contoured below Meall a'Bhuige then straightforward plod in improving mild, snowless conditions. Descended to a point on the track due east of the summit. Steep but no real difficulties.Owen B17/02/2019

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

From Sgorr a'Choise on a walk from Ballachulish. Before the col, we had a wonderful view of a cloud wreathed Aonach Eagach. Though we had about 4h rain today it was showery with dramatic breaks. Huge slog to Meall Mor then easy back onto forest roads down to a - by the time we got there- deserted visitor centre.pwheeler27/05/2015

Combined with Meall Lighiche from the A82 near Achnacon & Signal Rock with Shaky. A good round & a bit more interesting than just slogging up the steep NE slopes. Used the track beside the Allt na Muidhe & then crossed the river by a bridge underneath the N ridge of the Corbett. Fairly brutal ascent over Creag Bhan to the snowy summit & then continued NW then N to Meall a'Bhuige. Impatient to get to the Clachaig, we ignored Sgorr a'Choise & headed straight for Meall Mor on the grounds that the hill would still be there another day. There again, the same could be said of the Clachaig... Descended the NE slopes of Meall Mor directly to the car. My knees were in good shape before that.NotReallyABagger01/11/2008

Parked on bend by Signal Rock. On access track then steeply up on grassy slopes soon becoming murderous - each step was a foot straight up. 2,250' in less than a mile. To sheep fence to a second fence and the grassy top. 11.45.arranc02/08/2004
Solo. Parked at the layby on the west side of the A82 road at NN116570. I started walking and went more or less straight to the summit of Meall Mòr. I returned more or less the same way. There was much long grass. The weather was dry, but it had been raining earlier in the day.pwbellarby03/08/2003
