Solo. Very windy. Staying in Ullapool.iansm16/09/2019
Off at one, back at four... The best day of an iffy weather week in Gairloch. With J, Shaky & Smithy from the bridge over the Abhainn an Torrain Duibh on the A835. SE over the bridge along the road to the track leading into the now sparse woodland. At the end of the woodland, a broken gate gave access to the slopes leading relentlessly to the summit for a brilliant view. Two hares kept a close eye on us at the top clearly on the scrounge for titbits. They may have found half a BBQ flavour Hula Hoop after we left... Back by the same route. The track now goes well beyond the mapped extent dropping to cross the river via a newish bridge & continues towards (& is signposted for) Beinn Liath Mhor Fannaich.NotReallyABagger21/05/2019

From the weather station at the west end of Loch Glascarnoch. Followed the track through the forest, where there is a broken gate at the end which gives access to the hill. Thereafter headed straight up. Was bagging the bolt in the summit cairn.BigJ17/04/2019
From Layby at 289738 where a deer fence can be climbed over at the eastern end of the new forest. Easy slopes over Meall Daimh to misty summit but fine views on the way.mindlessflogger20/12/2018

Solo. Late decision as still recovering from illness and didn’t know how I’d feel after yesterday’s Munro. But a glorious day so couldn’t resist. Chose this local(ish) short walk. Weather was so good and views so great that I extended on both ascent and descent by doing extra loops. Actually wondered about coming back down early it was SO HOT!! Glad I didn’t. The climb itself may not be terribly interesting but the views from the top were out of this world. Very happy to be able to climb hills again.Maggie27/05/2018
Meall Diamh & Beinn Liath Mhor a'Ghiubhais Li from A835 at Loch Glascarnoch. On own.MorecambeMonkey06/05/2018
Icy cold. Snow and hail blizzards made this easy hill into a full-on winter expedition. I was grateful to see a shelter cairn on top! Solo.Dangerous Dave23/03/2018
61st – Solo. From Aultguish Inn, follow Allt Giubhais Beag S, then W between two woods on map, ascend hill taking in tops Meallan Caoruinn, Beinn Liath Bheag, Meall na Speireig, and finally the Corbett. Return retrace then head NE to Meallan a Gharuidhe and back to Aultguish Inn. Lower down very boggy, there are probably better starting points for this hill. Cloudy, but above the lower tops, light rain for a few hours.RGibbs21/09/2017

Great viewpoint.clashcityrocker23/05/2016
A valentine's day walk to prove I love the mountains. Skiting along the frozen bogs on west side of the Abhainn an Torrain Dubh in heavy snow showers, I was trying to work out how to cross it, with all the boulders both above and below the water encased in ice. But there's a bridge above the forest, which isn't on the map, yay! I followed the landrover track back a way (also not on the map), and found the atv track going up a fire break up the hill. The final climb to the top was surprisingly awkward, over a mixture of hard ice, soft snow and boulders, but I got spectacular views from the top before the next snow storm blew in. An easy walk down the track to the road; the fresh snow made it miles easier to walk on the sheets of ice.Gill14/02/2016
Circuit of 4 eastern Fannaich Munros and this Corbett from Lochdrumdavidpettit8419/10/2015
From S, after Dearg, as an afterthought, revisit for trig bolt in shelter cairn. Then SE for Speireig. Dreich 19mi 11-top circuit of Sims and HuMPs from A832 just E of Grudie Power Sta.RHW19/06/2015
Standard route - track through forest and then SW over open rough ground.benalder28425/05/2015
Climbed with someone Imet at Aultguish Inn who kindly gave me a lift back to Inverness. Beautiful weather. Started at Fannich track then followed a land rover track up hill. Reached summit in 1hour 45. Nice walkmunromurph19/04/2015
Quick up and down along with Meall na Speireig to beat the forecast snow and wind. just made it. Awkward boggy/heathery ground I places especially on descent form latter top, could perhaps have found a better line with a bit more care.dickscroop29/03/2015
Solifluction boulder ramparts or a pile of old rocks - discuss.Someone has eaten the trig. Have lanced a boil (or is it boiled a lance) as this is my second attempt. Last time the forest track was impassable because of deep soft snow. Nice walk.Martin R20/10/2013

A misty ascent from Loch Glascarnoch. See my blog post for more details:
MMC bus meet. Good clear day.brangie16/12/2012
Quick afternoon ascent (2h total) with Dad. Did circular. Easy walk, but this mountain is not up to much to be quite frank.AGWilliamson18/09/2012
Best for the views rather than the hill itself. Short climb just to shake out the legs the day after Wilderness Challenge; that and a swim in the river afterwards worked out fine.Colinmac200519/08/2012

From the N, took path along the Abhainn an Torrain burn. Found that in spate it couldn't be crossed - had to walk 2km further upstream, even then touch and go. Still, we could then tick off minor bump Drochaid a'Ghiubhais Li.Aye Jimmy31/05/2001

South Africa rejoined Commonwealth today. From road at W end of Loch Glascarnoch. Across trackless spongy grass, moss - like walking on a mattress. Followed dry drainage channels straight uphill. Over a second deer fence to less hag like surface and to tundra and rings of boulders into mist and to top at 12.10.arranc01/06/1994
