With Graham from Inchnadamph. Mostly dry, just an hour of rain.iansm18/08/2019
From Sail Rac. Then headed west back to parking north of Achfary. Hard going around the 650m contour, after that found a slightly easier line avoiding the worst of the boulders. From the first 490m contour north and then west. Was fortunate that it was early in the season and there had been a good dry spell, the going was good. South of Lochan a Chreobair, across the stream, then over the shoulder of Ben Screavie and south of Loch nam Breac Buidhe.Owen B23/04/2019
Cycled up to Aultanrynie up via Reinidh back via Meallan Liath Beag. Excellent views.Topographer5719/07/2018
Started from Bealach na Feaithe to the north. Excursion whilst walking the Sutherland Trail.justin99923/06/2018
Did this on a superb sunny day out. Parked in the car park at NC 298 402, then walked to Lone and took the good track up to Bealach na Fèithe. Then over Meal Garbh to Pt 761 and on to Meallan Liath Coire Mhic Dhughaill. Back over point 761 and along the ridge to Tàtha nam Beann, dropping down the grassy slopes before the crags at the end of the ridge to regain the track for a long walk out.martin_hall28/05/2018
Sixth and last summit of the day walk over tops from Aultanrynie to Meallan Liath Coire Mhic Dhughaill- essentially the walk in the SMC Corbetts guide including Carn Dearg and adding Sail Rac. Satisfying to have such a good high ridge section to this walk. Sunny, warm off the ridges, great visibility and the mountain to myself. The descent went well until the last half mile before rejoining the stalkers track.pwheeler24/05/2018
Anti-clockwise circuit of Meallan Liath Coire Mhic Dhughaill & surrounding tops from Kinloch on a very windy day. On own.MorecambeMonkey11/05/2018
Alone, staying at Sleeperzzz in Rogart.Grinner24/03/2018
With MVW. Short cycle and direct line to summit on a rather wet and cloudy day with some glimpses of what could be.Frank16/06/2017
With M. Tough day, mostly in mist on ridge, then storm near summit. Fell on stones injuring ribs and wrist. Great hill though.douglas_easton19/05/2017
Log this hill with Big JNozzer17/05/2017
Bagging the trig. Parked at Kinloch and followed the track along to Aultanrynie. Picked up the zig zag stalkers path and followed it up and round to spot height 513. Wandered over the Meallan Liath Beag and made the steep ascent onto the ridge. Light rain showers kept drifting by and it was quite cold. Turned left on the ridge and ascended over slabby stones to the summit trig which is protected by a low wall. Very extensive views. The cold drove us off the summit and we descended directly south to eventually pick up the stalkers path again. Very dry underfoot as there hasn't been much rain. With Nozzer.BigJ17/05/2017
Started from car park at NC297402. The track into Strath Luib na Seilich makes for very easy walking/running/cycling. Ascended via Sail Rac and Tatha nam Beann. Descended over Meall Garbh to Bealach na Feithe and onwards to Sabhal Beag.raffemeister23/08/2016
Carn Dearg and Meallan Liath Coire Mhic Dhughaill from Kinloch. Rain and clouds over the tops for much of the time.RobertP05/07/2016

Track to Lone, then over Meall Horn, Sabhal Mor, Sabhal Beag, Bealach na Feithe and Meall Garbh to summit. Descent via Tatha nam Beann then NW to pick-up path back to Lone. Long day in the heat and this is one complex mountain.benalder28401/07/2013

2nd ascent. Before grahams of SB, Cat and BD.amswanston15/04/2012
Trig revisit. Aultanrynie track. It soon started raining and was a cold wet windy afternoon. Straight up to Meallan Liath Beag ridge, out to Carn Dearg (CT) then bagged the three GTs. The NW top was desparately cold reached by an awkward descent on wet boulders. Fortunately the higher Meall Garbh was less exposed as was the Corbett. Unsure whether the in-spate Allt an Reinidh was bridged, I returned to E col and kept the burn on my R, but neednt have worried: good bridge by Aultanrynie. The Goretex earned its keep again today.RHW27/05/2011
From Kinloch at NC348343, track around loch shore and up track to pt. 513m. Angled across to Loch Ulbaich, and climb Carn an Tionail (Graham) - across top Carn Dearg to summit. Descended direct line to track at NC355363 and back to road.nordicstar29/04/2011
From road to Aultanrynie. Stalkers track to 480m up shoulder and ridge west of Carn Dearg then east to summit. Back same way. Thunder, lightning and heavy rain on way down.chrisbien04/06/2010
3 of 8: From Sail Rac.ChrisR30/07/2009
With Kenny SummersSpudGunn13/06/2009
MCJC. First reasonable day on a week spent at Kylesku. Light wind with occasional sun. Really good hill with complex ridges. Summit area covered by flat slabs. Continued to Carn Dearg. Interesting views of Arkle (end on)and Ben Stack. Covered in frogs. Meallan Liath Beag ridge very undulating. Great hill and well worth a return trip.Martin6631/05/2006
From West MerklandBLACKHILL31/05/2001
Foot & Mouth restrictions meant we had to do this Corbett (after dipping boots in disinfectant) via the longer more strenuous approach from Lone. However, we could bag some outliers on this route.Aye Jimmy16/04/2001
I preferred this using both of the stalkers paths rather than the route down the coire.Gill01/01/2000
Bagged the same day as Arklegman09/09/1999
Solo Uisdean2525/07/1999
Solo. I drove to Kinloch just south of Loch More. I walked along a track to Aultanrynie. I went diagonally NW up the hillside and then NE and then E to reach the summit of Meallan Liath Coire Mhic Dhughaill. I descended approximately S and then went down to Aultanrynie, keeping a little way N of Allt an Reinidh. It was somewhat misty on top.pwbellarby26/04/1998
