Up and down from Glen Morriston on a very cold crisp day. This hill is now effectively an industrial site with wind farms, run of river hydro and pylons and all that goes with these - tracks, outbuildings etc. Great views from the top if you can ignore the mess.benalder28405/11/2016
Clockwise route from the parking area on the A887 directly opposite the gate giving access to the hill. On own.MorecambeMonkey30/10/2016
A thorough exploration of the hill from Invergarry. My route followed the Aldernaig burn up through the woods, round the very lovely Loch Lundie, up an old path to the Allt Lundie (uncrossable in spate), and up the E side of the river (with great waterfalls) to the wind farm. Good sheep tracks make the going easy. Along the wind farm track over Mam a Chroisg in heavy rain and sleet, and then along an old fence and over some bumps to the lovely summit plateau, with fine views. Down the wind farm track towards Meall nan Calman, then rough stuff for a short while, followed by good sheep tracks contouring around the head of the little streams. I picked up the old path near the top and then found an argocat track back to the Loch. This is a hill to bag now before it disappears under a tide of encroaching renewables schemes. There is a second wind farm under construction to the W and a hydro scheme at Loch a'Bhainne.Gill01/07/2016

Evening Corbett bag from Glen Garry road.Eddie06/06/1995
Cairngorm Club “Easter” meet – actually held 1 week before Easter. It was based at Spean Bridge Hotel. The weather was not good so spent the morning chatting and drinking coffee. With a fellow member I ascended Meall Dubh, starting near the dam of Loch Loyne. The outward route was via minor tops of Clach Criche, Carn Dearg and Carn Tarsuinn. We then followed fence posts (on boundary). The fence does not go to the summit of Meall Dubh as the boundary does so we found ourselves in the mist having gone too far east. We retraced our steps and reached the summit. We descended a more direct route.pwbellarby09/04/1995
