From layby 184079. Cloud down so no visibility. Very wet underfoot. Didnt really enjoy this one.NormanW23/07/2020
From Knockan Crag car park. Up path to south then round Meall Odhar and up north ridge. Back furher south. Superb panoramic views from summit. Very rough terrain, particularily as this was first hill for almost 9 months, just 5 days after 5 mile lockdown lifted.Coinneach08/07/2020
From the geological car park. Up the path to get above the crags then over complex hillocky terrain to pick up the ridge path to the west. Return similar way. Autumnal low cloud/fog banks occasionally hiding the view, but in equal measure making stunning vistas as they billowed over peaks to the west.N.Morters24/11/2019
2 and 6 of 7: Out from Meall nan Dearcag. Return from Meallan Odhar.ChrisR26/05/2018
skirted north of Meall Odhar to Loch Odhar then north shoulder to summit. Returned to south of Loch a' Phris and Meall Odhar.davidsbatty05/05/2018
From grass verge of A835 at 181070, via minor cols NE of 402m tump. Both the terrain and ground underfoot are rough and locally wet and made for slow progress. Nice views of Inverpolly hills to the west. Returned via the tump summit.Topographer5702/09/2017
As Nordicstar says don't be tempted by track to mast. Parked off road by lochan and contoured/switchbacked eastwards and up to summit which had surprisingly big cairn. Bit heathery/tussocky/haggy but not too bad.AndrewFinnimore29/01/2017
Not sure this is the best route really, but as others went up the muddy track to transmitter, then across tops and bottoms.jenx23/07/2016
From the road point by access to the mast. Went to top of this and over the tump top but a mistake as this leads into a rough hag strewn hollow below the summit. Better to cut up off the antenna path at 300m shoulder and seek a rightward contouring line atound the hills at about 350m until the SW ridge of the Marilyn can be gained. Much quicker this way on return.nordicstar23/07/2016

From campsite on northwest slope of Meall an Fhuarain. Then south to Beinn Chroisg.Alan Moore03/06/2011
Park before Knockan centre. Over first rise on GPS to left under Meall Odhar sporadic line of old fence posts over 6 or 7 ridges to final cross ridge and pleasant grass gully for last 1/2 mile to top ridge. 11.55. No view - mist.arranc18/06/2007
