Parked at Dalnatrat, the walked along new forest road to exit forest at 973505. Up to lochans at 960505 then up enjoyable slightly rocky SW ridve to summit. Continued along ridge nearly to forest then took track (not on os map but visible on google earth) from 973523 to join inbound route at 977526. Lovely route, great walk with beautiful views.

Good access from the B&B road. Right fork, then footpath onto open fell after gate. Great 360 view.jenx05/01/2016
With Jenx, from forest track road parking at start of the hill track at 155m. Took the path to gate at 200m. Then zig zag up more or less above gate through grass and heather to ridge at 380m. Avoid direct line to summit as gets into steep ground. Along pleasant ridge on faint path for 1km to summit trig.nordicstar05/01/2016
From Dalnatrat, up forestry track for about a mile, then turned right up a narrow and very steep vehicle track through a felled and replanted strip as far as and over a gate onto the open hill. Turned left and continued alongside the fence as far as the main ridge.Topographer5708/10/2015
Parked at B&B gate. Straight up to SE. Easier return from CaF (4). Breathtaking views between the lochs, sunny and cloudless.iangalbraith15/03/2015
parked at locked gate after turning right on road to b&b, new path towards bottom of the ridge then to the the top.robertphillips14/02/2015
Started from road end to Bealach B&B. As wanted to try Meall Ban as well walked up forest rd, but patch through forest has been obliterated, due to felling etc. Given the size of the river Meall Ban is best reached by staying in Salachan Glen as long as poss. Simplest way to BS is just to head SW from road end. Excellent view point if it hadn't been so dreich. Then Airds HillThearlaichdubh01/11/2013

Parked near Bealach B and B in Salachan glen. On track, up glen and struck off over swamp and sheep pastures to gap in trees. Up over bracken, heather and sludge, some sheep sections and almost into gorge to climb over crags to first horizon. Slow progress over heather to drop down over stream and up to a second cross ridge. Indications of a path and footprints on final NE/SW ridge and to top at 12.15. Mizzle.arranc04/09/2004
