Walked with Kev in very wet and boggy lower levels even though it was snow and ice covered for a lot of it, better up top with good views all around. Was very windy on top so we didn't hang around long.supermario07/02/2020

Straightforward out and back from the parking area below the dam.Geoff Briggs10/02/2019
From small parking area near Loch an Daimh dam (NN 51191 46376). Followed the stony track then onto a faint path marked with a cairn. Very boggy in places, best to head to the right of the peat hags, the path directly through them is awful as I discovered on descent! Once at the SE Top easy ridge walking to the Munro summit cairn.david23020101/11/2018
Climbed Stuc an Lochain (960m) and Meall Buidhe (932m) today, starting at 06:35 just below the Giorra Dam returning to the car at 13:15. Climbing Stuc an Lochain first, returned to the car then up Meall Buidhe, 6:40 hours all in, just before the rain started.chillyman831/07/2018

Meall Buidhe and tops from dam.rhalstead08/09/2013
Started from Giorra dam in mid afternoon. Luckily did this one in a spell of dry weather (no rain for previous two weeks), otherwise would have been a real bog. Even so, a few wet spots on the walk. Route was the standard trade route, up the left side of Coire Beithe, then over the moor and up to the col between Meall a' Phuill and Meall Buidhe. Ascended to the ridge, and over to the summit. Easy ascent, there and back within three hours.oriolefan10113/07/2013
