From Drumore Loch, NO171610 - S, up forest road to fence then L up initial grass ATV track, which soon deteriorates to rough grass and heather steeply up edge of trees. Many hazards along summit ridge - rusty old wire and countless ankle breaker holes hidden in the heather.Isbjorn08/06/2019
Up forest track,then left at first junction and along to rough open skirting some fallen trees then directly up to summit cairn. Beautiful views here and on the descent. 42 minutesCoinneach31/03/2019

Cloud low just skipping the summit and very light rain. Traversed round the side of the forest to the north, easy going but track does exit the forest which didn't show on the map. Large carn and wallN.Morters12/03/2016
Up the forest track for five minutes then turn left up the fire break to the summit ridge. Quite unremarkable.Play2End30/10/2015

Solo run. Up steep heather in first forest break to summit ridge. Down through blown-down trees to track.amswanston31/10/2014
From minor road to the N, up edge of forest to summit. Easy enough.AndrewFinnimore25/09/2014
W Ajenx. Main forest track. Gate open but can't drive standard car up due to large drainage humps. Walk to near top of the track, then newer track leading up hill. When levels off stay with it, lots of wind throw block access. At end of track it turns up hill as a path. Some trees to negotiate but soon leads to cairned top.nordicstar29/06/2014
Solo. From start of path near Auchinleish. Used path going west and then left path to ascend NW to summit of Meall Beag. Continued to NE ridge of Meall Mòr where there is a wall which I followed to summit.pwbellarby15/04/2014

The rain got heavier. Started at Blacklulans on a track that sort of leads you behind the plantations. Struck left uphill through heather when I got bored with the track. Nice cows and black sheep. I bet there is a shorter way up.Martin R20/11/2012

From small quarry on minor road. Over wire fence, down and over stream and up on deep heather to animal track by forest to a gate in a corner. More trudge to horizon and a crushed track through heather to a second gate. Away up hillside to an old stone wall, crossed over a fallen section and to top half mile further. 16.10.
