From Poolewe road. Great views and fine Lichen on boulders west of the Matterhorn!mindlessflogger17/01/2020
Following Tiollie path making easy progress even over swollen rivers. At the high point curved round the shapely NE top on vague path and up onto the rocky summits, both cairns visited. Clearing dayN.Morters11/08/2019
From the CP at the bend south of Poolewe. Very hot day; morning walk. With Sam.ChrisR25/07/2019
A lovely walk up from Tollie via the NE Top then on to Meall an Spardain.NormanW14/06/2019
On the first day of an iffy weather week in Gairloch. Clag over higher summits, so set off with J, Shaky & Smithy from the small parking area on the A832 at 858790 following the good footpath. The mini-Matterhorn ahead (NE top) was too good to resist, so ascended that via the sharp N ridge then descended the gentle S slope & wended up the open slopes to the summit. Decent view despite the clag. Descended NW to mini col & then headed underneath cliff W of pt 357. At this point a path/ATV track was picked up leading all the way back to the main path which was handy. A good short outing.NotReallyABagger19/05/2019
2nd of 4 Marilyns in day car bagging with Jon Glew. Started from footpath to Slattadale on A832 (NG85843 78965)following footpath to lochan north of Meall an Doirein NE Top. From here picked best way through heather and crags to summit. Had feel of a reel mountain with ice and snow covering rocks. Return to footpath over Meall an Doirein NE Top. Total distance walked 5.23 miles with 420m of ascentSteveSmith06/02/2018
Small parking area due N on A832. Good path S to NG 8628 7668 when we veered off into the rubbish. Picked up the NE top on the way back. With Steve Smith.jonglew06/02/2018
Along the Tollie path, from the Poolewe end, surprised to find bridges or massive stepping stones for the river crossings. Up to the lochan near the high point of the path, then off piste into the mist and wind for some excellent navigation practice. Out via the tree- and hole-infested valley heading south from the lochan, past pt 269, and then SW to MaD, via crags and heather. Back via the valley heading NE to the lochan, much better, no trees.Gill22/12/2017
Parked by main road and took good path to waterfall. After deer fence path gradually disappeared and followed burn to loch and across to summit. Back via newly-promoted Sidhean Mor and superb views out west.AndrewFinnimore21/01/2017
self. at Gairloch with I Robertsondavidsbatty18/11/2016
From the small CP on road above Poolewe. Weather settled in morning but forecast to break down again midday. Good track affected by electricity board caterpillar vehicle doing maintenance on masts along route. From high point on track a wet slog up 200m of variable going to large cairn visible from below and smaller cairn set back on highpoint 50m distant. Rain returned on way down.nordicstar03/08/2016
Interestingly craggy area. After the path the new plantings made for rough going in places.jenx03/08/2016
MC, JC, IS, O. Overcast day but with occasional shafts of sun. Very clear visibility. Climbed up NE slopes. Fantastic viewpoint to Flowerdale, Torridon, Loch Maree peaks etc. Descended to N and went over the NE top which appears as a fang from the Slatterdale path. Then on to Creag Mhor Thollaidh. Both fine viewpoints.Martin6602/01/2016
From 2km S of Poolewe, up well maintained Slattadale path to about 200m before highest point, then passed between a lochan and an impressive looking pointed hill. Then south up the course of a stream to a flat area, SW passing under an obvious escarpment, and on S up to summit. A sunny day with excelleny views to Skye and Harris but the wind was near gale force on the rocky summit.Topographer5715/10/2014
Parked in small car park on A832 at NG 859 780 - room for 2-3 cars. Took good maintained path south to first lochan. Then headed SSW over pathless ground over two ridges and climbed steeply but easily up gully on north flank of hill to summit - not the prominent cairn on N end of summit ridge. Descended by the gully, and then NE to lochan west of the fine Meall an Doirein NE Top, joining the main path again east of lower lochan. Sunshine & showers.Man of Kernow128/10/2013

With Viveca on a lovely summer day.traighmhor26/07/2011
Done on 'rest' day after A'Mhaighdean epic (13.5hrs) yesterday. Very hot and combined with Hump to north took a long time. But the views are great and I got some good health news whilst sat on the summit. It doesn't get much better.chriswatson13/07/2011
Parked at the car park to the north and strolled in on the maintained path. Left the path around the lochans and soaked in the views on the way to the top.garyhoney09/06/2010

Climbed from our self-catering outside Poolewe, mid-April on a clear day. Breathtaking views, especially Slioch which from this angle rises across Loch Maree in teirs of rock, steep and impenetrable. Climb this for the views!Kevin2903515/04/2008
From the Poolewe bend by a long run out on the track/path.Eddie03/12/2006
Parked at start of path to Slatadale. On VWDP given NTS treatment - 3' wide for most part, fill in gravel boulders for step ups,etc. Bore right at top of path to find a faint path to S prow of Matterhorn-like lump to west. Around the corner to see RP. 3/4m trudge downhill then up to bealach. Negotiated final crags to top at 14.05. My 1200th Marilyn.arranc02/07/2005
