From Richards; no ice axe or crampons in van. Short day resulting.bertbarnett12319/03/2020
From Loch Affric car park, with Ellie dog.BLACKHILL10/09/2019
Parked at the end of the Glen Affric road (£2). Walked along the track towards Affric Lodge, then took the path almost to the 500m contour, and up over easy angled slopes to the summit. Descended more directly on steeper ground, to the corner of the track. Good viewpoint, but unfortunately the higher hills were in mist.LizH23/05/2019

Solo. From car park at NH215242. After ascending Beinn a' Mheadhoin, descended roughly westward to the fence that surrounds an area where trees are regenerating. Followed the fence round the northern side to join the track constructed for the hydro-electric scheme. Shortly after the end of the track, I waded across Abhainn Gleann nam Fiadh, with a little difficulty. A steep vegetated bank to the south of the burn had to be climbed up as well. Up hillside to summit of Am Meallan where highest point is a pointed rock as little west of the cairn. Went SE and south to the end of the tarmac road - a bit rough low down. Along road to car. Warm, dry and excellent views after a cloudy, drizzly start to the day.pwbellarby03/09/2016
From Forestry car park at W end of public road: £2 for day. Then gained main ridge at Sron Garbh. The day of the 50 mile HighlandCross duathlon which this year was won in 3h19. So in early before road closed; it was open again by the time I got down.RHW20/06/2015
