14 miles, 2568ft walk.stephenbuda16/09/2019
With: hb; From Ballachulish, we walked past the primary school up Gleann an Fhiodh on a very good path to the prominent cairn. We crossed the River Laroch with some difficulty after all the recent rain, then gained the lovely south west ridge of Sgorr a'Choise which we followed to top. This ridge has losts of quartzite outcrops. Good views from the summit to the south. We descended over Meall a'Bhuige to the bealach then straight up the south west ridge of Meall Mor. There were more good views into Glencoe. We followed the ridge roud to the north west then descended to the new gate in the deer fence before picking a muddy route up to Am Meall. The descent north west back to the quarries through late flowering bluebells was delightful.Ian Baines03/06/2019

On my own. Heavy showers. From TIC in Ballachulish. Up side of plantation. On way to Meall Mor.alwaysinshorts03/03/2019
From Ballachulish. Free parking at the Co-op. I thought the hill by the mast was the summit and came up here on the way up to Meall Mor. As I looked back, the other top of felled forest looked higher. I bagged it on the way back down!Dangerous Dave26/08/2018

Train to Tyndrum Lower, bus to Glencoe visitor centre. Up newish forestry road towards bealach between Am Meall and Meall Mòr long and tortuous, but smooth and easily graded, ideal for the elderly walker (or this one at least). Rightwards just before col on to rougher track up to communications mast, then back and across a hundred metres of forestry débris to summit. Cloudy with some sunny intervals and one or two showers. Views up Glencoe and down Loch Leven, hills including Beinn a Bheithir and glimpses of the Mamores. Back down to visitor centre, then road to Ballachulish for bus to Oban.mainnirnamfiadh08/08/2018

Enjoyable plod up from the quarry paths. Excellent viewpointColin Crawford03/03/2017
Overcast, warm for time of year. Took track on right at entrance to quarry which leads to a gate. Took path up grassy hillside before gate. Steep but straightforward to summit.Wycombe Wanderer02/01/2017
After the sublime Sgorr a'Choise and Sgorr a'Choise. Second ascent after Iain Brown's 1500th 2 years previously, weather a complete contrast, gorgeous sunny weather today! Completed loop to Ballachulish via Am Meall. Trees all cleared now and reasonable tracks. Easy descent back to Ballachulish.nordicstar26/08/2014
Great little hill with fantastic views. Got completely drenched. Took route through quarry and ended up bush bashing through forest.outdoorgirl29/07/2013
