Not recommended to approach from Sutherland's Grove / Gleann Dubh. The deer fence around Barcaldine Forest has been recently replaced and there are no obvious points to cross it.dickiewren21/04/2019

From Druimvuic on estate track then east over NE top and on to Meall Garbh main summit. Returned by similar route but taking in Creag na cathaig which I had missed in cloud on way out. Decent enough weather but tops all in cloud so no views which I think may have been quite good otherrwise.dickscroop29/12/2017

The standard route from Druimavuic. The bulldozed track is ugly but gets you up and down the hill quickly. The climb to pt 804 m was rather snowy, being on the lee side of storm Conor, and seemed surprisingly steep and rocky compared with the contours on the map. Somewhat awkward in bendy boots with no ice axe, or did I just choose a daft line?Gill27/12/2016

Trig revisit. Great view, wonderful Autumn afternoon, crisp and clear. From WNW, forest track, past 1st hairpin a path heads straight up then stops. Brief fight thru young spruce to tussocky ground which improves with height. Fine hill: followed ridge NE over various Corbett- and Graham Tops, Sgulaird, Stob Gaibhre then descended to Glen Ure and followed farm track back to start.RHW17/10/2010

MC birthday outing with various inc JC and DC. Rain and mist. No viewMartin6628/10/2006
Celebrating Martin66's birthday with a wet, drizzly ascent & viewless summit with lots of others. Using the standard route along the Allt Buidhe from Druimavuic, we went all the way to the top col & then over Creag na Cathaig & pt. 804 to the summit. As is often the case with my brother, impatience then took over & a direct line of descent over Meall Garbh (the clue is in the name) was attempted. The slopes under this top were either too steep or wet & slippery for all of the party to get down, so we ended up going over Meall nan Caorach to the NW & then, realising that the Allt Buidhe was far too full to get over further down, traversed back E underneath Meall Garbh until walkers of all abilities could get safely over the burn. It added interest, I suppose, not to mention an extra hour of unnecessary soaking.NotReallyABagger28/10/2006
