Parked near the start of the excellent path on the A838. Straight up the path, then up the hill from 355320.Owen B24/04/2019
Finally climbed this hill. Up the easy stalkers path, which has been bizarrely resurfaced with granite chippings, which form a pseudo scree slope in descent. Then easy strolling up grassy slopes to the fine summit plateau, with grand views.Gill20/04/2019
Half way with Bob and Janice. Then a bog trot to the top. Greta views all round. Easy back tot eh track.Play2End23/09/2018
First wait for two months of dry weather. Ascent is from nearby road via an excellent track. Easy to cut across from this across the bog and an excellent view in all directions awaits on the level top. To be highly recommended as a fine day out for less keen hill walkersOh no I forgot...19/07/2018
With M. Very easy ascent of Graham missed on previous ascent of Beinn Leoid. Later visited cafe in Tarbet.douglas_easton19/06/2018
Using the astonishingly good hill path from 356333. then over easy terrain to summit. wonder what the sotry is with that path, someone has done a lot of work there....hils21/05/2018
Rd of MFL, Chuail and Leoid from A837. Marked path is a well maintained stalkers' path on which I was overtaken by two stalkers with horses. I told them where I was going and they said stay on the ridges on the way in otherwise it was OK. Low morning cloud dispersed but ground remained wet after overnight rain.Topographer5728/09/2017
Ascended and descended via fantastic path from A838 (marked on OS). This hill would make a nice circuit with Meallan a Chuail and Beinn Leoid.raffemeister23/08/2016

With Martin66, J, JC, Otis & the Harts. J's first Graham. Used the stalkers path from the road for a cracking view from the summit. Then leaving the others headed down SW for the col. Otis galloped after me trying to herd me up with the others! Up to Meallan a'Chuail where the mist had drifted in. Dropped W to the col & then followed the path N for about 1km before following a fainter path across the moor to rejoin the earlier stalkers path. The others were already well settled in the pub!NotReallyABagger02/09/2012
