From Fassfern - nice track by river then over to Br nan Uamhachan which I now see I did before in 1999! Still nice warm sunny day for 27Km!davechaffey28/05/2017
From Fassfern. The first part of the walk is very pleasant through woods along the river, but then there’s the obligatory turbine house and a new hydro road after a couple of km. This leads to a metal bridge about 300 m downstream of Glensuilaig bothy (which is a gem), and a bulldozed track up the hill. The way up to Meall a’Phubuill looks fearsomely steep, but it’s an imposter. The ground is dry and grassy, and the going is very easy. The angle eases at some solifluction terraces, and a lochan, and you’re soon at the cairn.Gill09/04/2017

From Fassfern, up trach from just before bothy ,then cut up to summit and on to the two Graham tops and dropping down to valley. Poor valley path back to bothy where I missed the bridge so had to wade. In cloud all the way along the top but rpoute not a problem.dickscroop31/12/2014

MC JC. A much better hill than anticipated. Started off from home on a very misty, dank and cold morning. Day improved to give clear skies and weak sunshine all day. Glen Loy in shade all the time with streaks of water ice on the path. Hard going up on to Druim Gleann Laoigh but very good walking along the top. Long distance views masked by a purple haze. Glorious sunset. No wind and very cold on return. Strange but beautiful smell in Glen Loy - like a very mild pipe tobacco!? Returned in the dark.Martin6608/01/2006
