With Sue, on another cold and cloudy summer day. Cycled from A 832 car park along all of the North shore of Loch A'Bhraoin to cottage at Lochivaron then up hillside to bag Meal Dubh then summit of Creag Rainich and W top. Return same way. Bikes made a good use of the track.Frank12/06/2019
From A832, along lochside track and straight up from Lochivraon.davidpettit8431/05/2019
On the last day of an iffy weather week at Gairloch. Shaky & Smithy were off Munro-bagging on the western Fannaichs, so with J along the shore of Loch a Bhraoin as far as Lochivraon past docile cattle watching the pied wagtails skimming the water. Then slogged our way up the slopes behind the house & bothy to Meall Dubh. There are traces of a path lower down to make it easier. On to the summit for a decent view with cloud coming & going from the higher tops. Very good walk back along the broad ridge picking up a path just W of Bristeadh a' Mhill Dhuibh almost to the end before dropping back to the loch. Spotted dunlin, curlews, a golden plover & lots of deer on the ridge. Much better than a simple descent to the loch.NotReallyABagger24/05/2019
From NE, up Allt na Feine then onto NE ridge. Back over three tumps.Topographer5712/05/2019
With Sim after sleeping in Shenavall. Walked out to bike at Lochivraon. Light rain at times, summit clear, grey, views. Dusting of snow on top. Rounsfell02/12/2018

This walk was a lot easier than expected: last time I walked along Loch a'Bhraoin, the path was somewhat trying, to say the least. It was quite a surprise to find a bulldozed track. Not pretty, but a lot easier than the previous bogfest. The walk up the hill from the bothy was also easy, on relatively dry ground. The views from the top were as gob-smackingly wonderful as I expected. The walk back along the ridge was really good too!Gill01/08/2016
Misty. Will be back for view hopefully. Enjoyed run in along loch and ridge clearing to sun on way back.davechaffey30/05/2016

Parked on A832 at bend to NE of Loch a'Bhraoin. Long walk along shores of loch past bothy, up hill about 2km beyond this. Trig on top, patches of rock, and magnificent views to snowy An Teallach and Fisherfield hills. The lesser hill Meallan an Laoigh to the SW displays an amazing amount of completely bare slabby rocks on its flanks.Aye Jimmy30/04/2006

Walked in from the A832 to Loch a'Bhraoin and ascended from the bothy. Cloudy, damp day but the cloud was above the summit, probably due to higher ground to the west.JohnW08/08/1991
