Walked up the road from the Kenknock car park in Glen Lochay. Walked directly up to the South Top first before reaching the Corbett. Solo.Dangerous Dave19/10/2019

from Pubil - circuit up road then off northerly from hillrdhumble23/09/2018
From car at Dalchoirich Farm to bike on (tarmac) track at west end. Meall na Cnap Laraich; Meall Touraigh; Sron Eanchainne (not easy to find looking down on it); Meall nan Subh; Creag nam Bodach; Meall a Chall and down to bike. A pretty featureless road so it took me 40 minutes to find where I had left the bike! - which made it a longish day.dickscroop25/08/2018
From Kenknock car park. Things are changing on this estate; driving on the hydroboard road is discouraged, and tellingly no one was starting walks from up the road. There is also a big woodland restoration project 'The Forest of Mamlorn'. Be aware of new deer fences, required for this laudable initiative. So we walked along it to the top and wound our way up Meall nan Subh, then back over its S top and returned to the road via Creag Fagiarch. This gave an interesting hour on high ground and a surprisingly pleasant descent to where the deer fence meets the road. The changes in access gave us a much more enjoyable walk than we had anticipated today, having to work out an alternative to simply bagging from the bealach. With Pete. This was my 2000th Tump.pwheeler28/05/2018
Short hill walk whilst up at Loch for Glen Lyon ultralittle al06/05/2018
From Pubil. Having bagged Meall Buidhe and Sron a' Choire Chnapanich, decided to try this Corbett. Some ice fields had to be climbed but nothing hard. Top area covered in snow and under an amazing sun, the place looked sublime as only my foot prints spoilt the view. Only took 2hr 15 min.Jhimmy01/04/2018

From the top of the pass.Lionel Bidwell15/05/2016
A damp and windy day, so this was the perfect short walk. I managed to get the car up to about 480 m on the old road before the pot holes couldn't be dodged. It's an interesting hill, with little knolls all over the plateau, and the going is surprisingly easy.Gill04/05/2016
Used the road all the way up Glen Lyon. Easy climb to summit from it. However rewarded with some great views of Glen Lyon. Company: Jake the Black Lab.iandesbottes20/10/2015

Solo. Glen Lyon Dam to Meall Buidhe, Feith Thulain & Sron a Choire Chnapanich, then Meall nan Subh from bealach to west. Fine with intermittent mist & the roaring of Red Deer in rut.Vin29/10/2003
3.30 am in the dark feeling weary and slowing down behind schedule. Marilyn No.14 of 16 climbed over 18 hours in a solo attempt to climb 24 marilyns. Long never ending dark night of cloud on heathery rough 6km slow leg cutting east across the corrie before rejoining ridge to cloudy Ghaordaidh. Finally packed in at road before Lawers group where Lesley had spent night in the tent awaiting my overdue arrival.Chris Pearson02/06/2002
MC JC. Climbed on a very wet Saturday intended to be spent further north. Strong west wind and driving rain. Some views on top. Up in 40min. Area of extensive wet peat near the top. No-one else mad enough to be on the hill!Martin6630/06/2001
Short ascent from pass to W. Would be confusing in mist - a lot of knolly bumps on summit area.Aye Jimmy06/08/2000

Another candidate for easiest COrbett. Combined with an ascent of Cam Chreag in Glen Lyon.gman09/09/1999
From Hydro lairig in full gear. Steady ascent over heather to false summits, many with cairns. Final top was unmistakeable with loose pile of stones on a crag. Visited 3 or 4 other bumps to confirm the point. 11.20.arranc11/04/1999

I drove via Glen Lochay to the summit of the hydro-electric road over to Glen Lyon. Solo. Went more or less direct to the summit of Meall nan Sùbh, returning by a slightly different route. There are several minor tops. Visibility clear with some light rain. Did Beinn Dearg (Glen Lyon) later in the day.pwbellarby11/09/1993
From high point on private road (still ok condition in 2014). Dry, some sun, patchy views, poly bag sliding in snow gullies.iangalbraith07/02/1993
