Used the west side of the burn which seemed to work well before crossing the Allt Mheuran. The diversion around the cottage is horribly boggy even in June.Rob Rees25/06/2019

Parked 250 yards SW of the Coleitir track on the Glen Etive road. Walked up Glen Ceitlin, by the rocks slabs to the col between Meall Tarsuinn and Stob Coir' an Albannaich (a mistake - too much black ice for comfort!), over SCaA, MT amd Meall nan Eun, returning by the Glen Ceitlin path.Nick Down128/10/2018

Great day with Ron Dorn. Sunny, high cloud and little wind. Usual route from Coileitir but had to drop to 650m on east ridge of Albanaich to get free of snow cornice. 8 1/2 hours.alexmaclennan27/04/2014
Still some snow on the north face descent between the two hills climbed, an ice axe would have been handy! Steady pace for most of the day, first climb of the year!FCMark25/04/2014

Parked in cut at NN137469. Giant fern made the start feel like the Burma jungle. Eventually found revine path and a boggy slog up. I didn't like this route up one bit. Top has great views.Jhimmy20/07/2012

From camp at col 141419. Walked ridges to Meall nan Eun before descending Glen Ceitlein.mindlessflogger19/07/2008
From Meall nan Eun. Cloud gathering, it felt a bit like a race against the weather. Going this way I did have a good view of the rotten gullies and rakes on the N side of S C an'A so could pick out a good route to its summit ridge. Got there just before the cloud. Went down SE slopes and over Sron na h'-Iolaire. By heading over a 250+m knoll S of Lochan na h-uirache I avoided too wet ground and wading, to join a good path. Dave Hewitt discusses going on 'the wrong side of the hill' in Walking the Watershed, and the descent to the path felt just like that- an excellent and satisfying route with no sign of boot-prints anywherepwheeler16/06/2008
Solo. After ascending Meall Tarsuinn. From summit of Meall Tarsuinn I descended to the col with Stob Coir an Albannaich and then went steeply up a grassy rake to the east ridge of Stob Coir an Albannaich. The top of the rake is marked by a small cairn. The rake would seem to be the only easy way up a line of cliffs. I reached the summit of Stob Coir an Albannaich. I felt a pain in my left ankle which gradually got worse so that by the end of the walk back, I was going very slowly. I descended towards the col with Glas Bheinn Mhor and then down the path on the east side of Allt Mheuran. The path keeps to the east of the burn and is not very good low down. I walked back to the car on the track via Coileitir. There was heavy rain on the road journey home to Stonehaven although on the walk there had been only one very light shower.pwbellarby15/06/2008
