|Continued from Beinn Mheadhoin across the dam and then up the knobbly ridge to the summit. A real feeling of remoteness despite being only 15 miles from Inverness.
|From Beinn Mheadhoin, over the dam and then a direct route up the NE ridge. Return the same way. Estate workers wanted to chat.... politics, wind farm, where you from etc. Great day! Solo.||bolton||14/02/2019|

|Frollowing Beinn Mheadhoin, from Dam up to obvious ridge. Much new planting of native woodland to within half km from summit, deer fence crossed by well positioned gate...nice estate. Down by rough soggy track to lodge and back to road. Fine southern aspect.||N.Morters||01/01/2017|
|Circuit of Creag a'Chliabhain and Beinn Mheadhoin from telephone box at road junction to N. Route and write-up at: http://gayleybird.blogspot.co.uk/2016/05/meall-tarsaid-creag-and-beinn-mheadhoin.html||Gayle||16/05/2016|
|From the road head by telephone box. Followed the estate road then becomes the wind farm road, lovely. Deep in snow though so the hill destroying equipment is silent and we walk all the way in across the burn to GR 506217, up the wood edge and straight to summit of Beinn Mheadhoin. Back down same way and across the plain and dam to gain NE ridge of Creag a' Chliabhain. Some ATV tracks available but otherwise a smowy heathery plod. Walked back out past estate lodge and the shooters inside enjoying the fruits of the days shooting. 17km round trip, 4.5 hours.||nordicstar||15/01/2016|

|after Beinn Dubhchreadaidh. Aim for a gap in the cliffs beside the burn, then straight up the side of the deer fence. Descent to NE straightforward, though will soon be massive windfarm||Thearlaichdubh||02/05/2015|

|Solo run over Creag a'Chliabhain and Beinn Mheadhoin from the north. A good scramble up to Creag a'Chliabhain from Conagleann (with careful route choice). Lots of windfarm traffic at present.||amswanston||12/09/2014|
|From the N. Lots of windfarm building activity. Up Mheadhoin then down across dam and up to summit of Chliabhain.||AndrewFinnimore||16/05/2014|
|Part of circuit bagging 'Beinn Mheadhoin' as well, nice days walking with some intersting terrain. Did this hill first using farm track from Farraline up most of height, easy stretch to the summit and then off the back towards Easter Aberchalder on fairly steep gradient and rocky heather. Gorge walk back towards Mheadhoin is well worth doing!||Columba||05/07/2013|
