|With Kevin P after Carna. Nice clear evening.||Topographer57||12/06/2018|
|With Topographer57 from Loch Uisge (Loch of the water?)Car park.
Fabulous views in perfect evening sunshine.||KevPalmer||12/06/2018|
|Up the ridiculous SMC route, only to find, when driving past afterwards, that the main track goes to a mast and would take you much more easily to Sgurr Shalachain. Over SS and on to Beinn Mheadhoin in strength sapping heat, forcing a funereal pace in order to avoid one. No-one in their right mind would continue to Meall an Doire Dhuibh as per the SMC, past the noise and dust of the hideous quarry. Instead, the direct descent from BM is excellent, a little easy scrambling, a nice ridge and a sportingly steep descent at the end. Drought made it all very easy.||Gill||01/06/2018|
|Was planning to carry on round the horseshoe, past the superquarry, but weather was rubbish, so came off the east ridge. That was interesting. You can't tell from the map, but just off the summit, it becomes a knife edge & drops very steeply for 50 metres. North side was banked out with snow, so had to use the ridge as a handrail & kick steps.||ngthack||09/04/2018|
|Parked by shore of Loch a'Choire (parking spot just beyond restaurant). Sgurr Shalachain, Meall na Greine (both tops), Beinn Mheadhoin, Beul Choire nan Each, Sgurr a' Bhuic, Sgurr a' Bhuic NE Top. Bright day with snow on tops.||RobertP||05/04/2018|
|Great day doing the circuit round Sgurr Shalachain, Beinn Mheadhoin and down the Meall an Doire Dhuibh. When you find the stalker's path, stay on it, otherwise it gets to be really hard descending!||IanHHill||26/05/2017|
|Up the noth east ridge and round the horseshoe.||ARM||16/08/2016|
|Started and finished at NM834537; room for parking behind large rocks placed on edge of road without blocking access. With Mike. Crossed stile and smashed through felled forestry for 150m to reach open hillside of Sgurr Shalachain. Followed ridge to summit. Descended past Glen Sanda quarry and Meall an Doire Dhuibh. If I were to repeat this walk I would descend via Sgurr a Bhuic which looks like a nicer ridge.||raffemeister||14/04/2016|

|Ascended from the car park at Loch Uisge and over Meall na Greine. A much better hill than I expected with good views over Loch Linnhe and little evidence of the quarry from the summit.||JohnW||26/04/2012|
