Started at Kilfinnan. 2 miles along the forest track and then up to the bealach along the path. Up to Sron a Choire Ghairbh along the zig zaggy stalkers path to Meall na Teanga where the views were 360 degrees and absolutely awesome. Back down to the bealach and up to Meall na Teanga which seemed a harder climb, again the views were good, including Loch Linhe and Loch Ness. Back down the same way. Saw one other person (twice) he was going down from each top as I was going up.tsharp06/05/2019

Up from Gleann Cia-aig to the south and then east along trackless terrain to the bealach. Easy zig-zag path to the summit. Clear but slightly hazy and windy on top.Windy Corner19/05/2018

Very good conditions with great views in all directions. Cornices on summit ridge but path basically snow free.rurquhart30/04/2018
Ascended after Meall na Teanga - loads of snow but unconsolidated - hard going - mega windy from south west on ascent of the south ridge - was planning to escape off to N - but wind died out on summit and uneventful descentwychwood06/04/2018

Climbed first, then climbed Meall na Teanga after it. This hill probably the harder of the two hills, not much in them though. Good day out.FCMark11/06/2015
After Meall na Teanga. Followed the easy going trail to a panoramic 360 degree view of mist. Finally ticked after a failed attempt from Eas Chia-aig waterfall due to the depth of snow. Kilfinnan is the better approach.mindlessflogger26/05/2015

With Maggie and Dave. 2nd Munro of the day. Weather very changeable. Kept having to stop and change clothes, too hot, too cold, wet, dry etc. Great views from the top (except for the big wind farm).Maggie08/06/2014
With 10 others from West Bromwich Mountaineering Club. Warm day with snow about 1,000 ft. Alas we lost the views about 500 feet from the summit so didn't return via the ridge but retraced our steps.signyred19/02/2014

2nd of 2. Dropped down and them ascended via zig-zags. Followed ridge all the way down but screwed up and found myself on the edge of the falls :/ Ended up a hike up to exit, ~26km, ~1700m, 8hr30.bowzi29/04/2012
With family from just west of Clunes at parking. All went up to col. Dad and I did this alone. Then re-joined others and onto Meall na Teanga. Followed the ridge off via Meall Odhar. A fabulous descent - highly recommended.AGWilliamson09/08/2011

DMC climb with Jon, Alison M., Lucy B., Mark G. Excellent day with no wind and fair bit of sun. Very little snow remaining.amcculloch05/03/2011
DMC Day meet. Again, not much snow left. Fantastic forecast promised but ended up getting a fair amount of high level cloud. Still, hill itself was mostly clear and we did get a bit of sunshine early in the day.jonbowyer05/03/2011
