Here for the trig point. TP:UK log: Decided to go for this one on it's own rather than combining it with Carn Na H-Easgainn. Starting from the road end at Wester Lairgs N57° 23.349' W4° 10.518' (you could have driven up the road and easily parked just before the quarry entrance but it only saves you 500m N57° 23.286' W4° 09.929'). Decided to get as high as I could on tracks, so walked as far as the deer fence which has a gate N57° 22.481' W4° 09.761'. Climbed the gate and then the fun begins. I knew I had to cross the burn so went further north than I needed to to try and (a) avoid the bog (b) cross it high up. Burn was no problem but impossible to miss the bog. You then had the longest kilometre of holey heather and bog to climb up which seemed to take an age. Eventually we reached the trigpoint and sheltered behind the big rock with the hole in the middle. I don't think it's a cairn but no idea how the hole appeared? Not sure of the best way down we headed in the general directiothejackrustles27/12/2019

Probably a deer watcher's shelter at summit albeit an unusual one .chalky195311/04/2017
Unusual summit cairn near trig; Two striking upright boulders together at summit with cairn on top + stonework forming a tiny shelter. 5 mins at summit. Heather hill, nice view. Trig name is Meall Na Fuar Ghlaic. Via h-Easgainn, descending NE to join forest road at 731346. RHW15/02/2010
From Beinn Bhreac. This involved crossing the River Uisge Dubh (NH 72092 31566). This was the most scary river crossing I've ever had; water up to my waist and nearly too scared to move in case I was swept away. Then to Wester Lairgs and B851.Alan Moore17/02/2009
