From West Merkland on well trodden path.rhalstead18/06/2018
With J during a week in Sutherland. Glorious weather & a fine view from the summit. Parked just W of West Merkland & walked 1.5kms NE up track before picking up the old stalkers path on the S side of Allt Coir' a' Chruiteir. As others have noted, the path is rather overgrown & sometimes in the river itself. Took a slanting line up to the col & then a circuitous route on the best ground up to the summit spotting a ptarmigan on the way. Returned to the col & then took a direct line back over Meallan Liath Mor to rejoin the outward track. It being May, it was cuckoo time of course, although this time we actually saw one of the birds rather than just hearing them...NotReallyABagger20/05/2018
The usual way up. From West Merkland, then old stalkers path on S bank of Allt Coir a'Chruteir. After the path ended the terrain was less vegetated and I walked on the easiest terrain, which led to a few cairns up to the SW ridge just above the bealach. Higher up, there were dotterel and ptarmigan. Sunny and clear, views included the Fannichs and Morven. It seemed a shame not to have a ridge walk so I continued to the fine NE Top (qv) and returned via Sail Gharbh.pwheeler16/05/2018

From West Merkland, cycled as far as Allt Coir a'Chruteir. Path up south side of this stream is still there but much of it is succumbing to vegetation and bank erosion. Higher up the terrain is more confortable to walk on although it gets stony at the very top. Good clear views all around.Topographer5720/08/2015
