The usual ascent past Whale Cottage. Hot; cool breeze helped keep flies at bay. Many wild flowers of the commoner sort.Jon F11/08/2020
Solo. Parked at start of track to Whale Cottage at NH503927. After ascending Meall nan Eun I went NW to the col with Meall Dheirgigh and up the east ridge of Meall Dheirgigh. There is a newish, high deer fence that goes up the ridge. It passes not far from the summit on the south side. However, it is possible to wriggle under the fence. The highest point is 8m N of the deer fence and 15m E of the cairn. I had thought of including Breac-Bheinn but there was more hail and it started snowing so I thought better of it and just went down to Whale Cottage and the road.pwbellarby03/05/2019
From Whale Cottage via Breac-Bheinn. Showers of hail and sleet and serious snow on descent back to car.NormanW26/10/2018
Round of Dheirgidh and Breac from road below ruins of Whale Cottage.Topographer5725/07/2018
From Breac-Bheinn and then on to Meall Buidhe. A fine day.Alan Moore29/05/2018
Followed the track past Whale Cottage, then headed over the south shoulder of Meall nan Eun, past the east side of the loch, and up the ridge to the top. Ran out of time to visit Breac-Bheinn so returned along the burn to the N of Meall nan Eun, making a nice circular walk.martin_hall20/04/2018
Roadside verge parking at NH 5042 9280. Breac-Bheinn first via derelict Whale Cottage. On to Meall nan Eun before returning. Met Gill Stevens on a reverse route. With Carole Engel.jonglew02/04/2018
Two little Marilyns were more than enough for a snuffling, sniffing, coughing, germ-ridden, sick bagger. From the Whale cottage track, then up to the col behind Meall nan Eun and deer tracks and hard snow to the top of Meall Dheirgidh. It is possible to wriggle under the deer fence to get to the summit, a better option than climbing the fence, which is unstable and falling over. The place is marked by bits of wood threaded through the wire. Panoramic views of every mountain to the north, from coast to coast. Down the fence, across the bogs and up to Breac-Bheinn summit and trig. Down snow and steep heather and across the river to the track.Gill02/04/2018
From Breac-Bheinn over the moorland. Prolongued dry weather made it easy going. Sunny, fine views to Suilven et alN.Morters04/05/2017
2 of 5: From Meall nan Eun.ChrisR05/04/2017
Used the surprisingly good Whale cottage track to ascend up the burn line to 200m. The track continues to near 300m but somewhat wetter. Then cut along then up Dheirgidh to its ridge and deer fence to summit on its north side! Retraced the fence, moor and then fence line again to climb the multi top Breac-Bheinn. Direct down fell to regain the earlier track @220m. Surprisingly decent circuit considering how wet it's been.nordicstar26/07/2016
A good track up to 300m then deer trails helped to make this one quite easy.jenx26/07/2016
Solo jog. Up track past Whale Cottage to Breac-Bheinn then across to Meall Dheirigh. Great views to north and west.amswanston20/05/2016

From Breac Bheinn, hard ground and deer tracks made it easy going.AndrewFinnimore04/01/2014
Ascended from Strath Carron, having first climbed Breac Bheinn.JohnW14/06/2008
Parked on grass opposite track to Whale Cottage. Through deer gate on track past a ruined cottage and up on buggy tracks with river on the right. Turned left uphill on faint track which gave out, then a long flat section directly to RP and final clamber by new deer fence to top at 11.05. to B Bheinn.arranc11/06/2007
Round of Meall Dheirgidh and Breac-Bheinn from Whale Cottage. Freezing conditions made for good going over the bogs.Eddie24/03/2007
