Camped just north of the summit. Very windy night.RichardMurchie26/07/2018
Penultimate of 7 hills today. From Beinn Tarsuinn SW Top. Big drop down into Glen Catacol and up onto this ridge via the precarious edge of one of the erosion areas. Very wet and windy.jonglew09/05/2018
Walked to Coire Fhionn Lochan, then up to the large cairn and over to the south side of Meall nan Damh. Found a few faint paths in parts but a fairly steep and rocky ascent with brilliant views as you go up. Reached the summit, enjoyed the vista then headed down directly for Meall Bhig before finishing with a dip in the Lochan, amazing.Chris Mac07/05/2018

Over Beall Bhig, across west of small lochan and up Meall nan Damh, then heading north west to collect Creagan Fhithich.

7th hill of 9 today on a long and challenging route from Whitefarland point, climbing Ceann Reamhar, Sail Chalmadale, Mullach Buidhe, Casteal na h-lolaire, Beinn Bhreac and then Meall Donn, following ridge down to where it broadens out but then on a bearing to summit.
