Overnight at Arisaig and early morning ferry to Inverie. Walked to Mam Meadhail and then back along the ridge to the summit. Chose a poor line of descent at the western edge of the ridge by a hydro scheme pipeline: not recommended. Warm and very hot. Stunning views in all directions.benalder28425/05/2017
Meall Bhasiter, Beinn Bhuidhe, Sgurr Coire nan Gabhar, A'Chruach. Ferry from Mallaig to Inverie, walk to Mam Meadail (good views to Sgurr na Ciche) and then along fine ridge. From Sgurr Coire nan Gabhar descended S to follow curving ridge eventually heading W, past some old workings, then NW to A'Chruach (two knolls, the NW one appearing higher). Camped overnight just below summit (fine spot overlooking Inverie) before descending NE to the village.RobertP21/05/2017
Along ridge from Bheinn Bhuidhe. Gentle in comparison to rest of ridge. Staggering views of the Western Isles as the sun went down. Complicated descent down north ridge. Awful final descent back to Glen Meadail. Deep tussocks.Campbell Singer23/10/2016
