Park at the Bridge on A82 Followed the track to the last plantation crossed the river and headed up to follow the fence, then followed the stream that has it sources on the ridge. A wet day with OK views.Nozzer22/09/2019
from CP on A82 Clachaig Inn (NN120563 approx.). Track to Glencoe Cottages. With Munro Sgurr na H-Ulaidh and associated tops. Allt na Muidhe no problem to cross after dropping off Meall Lighiche even after two days continuous rain. Crossed at NN 10582 54338carole engel27/05/2019
From the A82. Allt na Muidhe in spate so continued to near Bealach Easan before crossing. Followed fence posts north west, but very lumpy and rocky in places not helped by sudden very strong gusts.Owen B17/02/2019
Cycled up from Achnacon then round of Lighiche and Choise.Topographer5731/08/2018
Easy walk in but hard work up the steep grassy slopes with temperatures in the mid-20s. Return same way. Agree with Gill, the flowers on the north slopes are very good.milimana28/06/2018
3-summit walk. Parked at layby on road (7:20) and took track and path up glen; crossed river easily and ascended N ridge of Meall Lighiche - trackless up steep part. Pleasant ridge walk to summit (9:20). Down NW to col with Sg a'Choise. Up to top of ridge and across deer fence then steepening rocky ridge to summit (10:50). Back down ridge to col with Meall Mor, then up broad easy-angled ridge to summit overlooking Glencoe (12:25). Descended E directly to glen; very steep but feasible on route identified earlier from below. No path. Car 13:20. Weather closing in but dry with high cloud and good views with some drizzle later.dbb13/06/2018

58th Solo. From Glencoe village to YH and trail to Signal Rock, cross A82 and follow track along Allt na Muidhe. Break from track SW to gain ridge and follow round to summit, return same way. Clear, warm, dry day, wind picked up on top.RGibbs02/06/2017

Meall Ligiche and Meall an Aodainn from Glen Coe. Started overcast but clouds high, snowed while on top, but brightened on return. Excellent views to Sgurr na h-Ulaidh.RobertP15/04/2016
The northern ridge looked a bit too steep for my poor tired legs so went up the choire to the west, which was pleasant. Nice views from top. The North ridge did prove it would have been a bit brutal to climb as I descended it.Jhimmy04/10/2015
From 'Signal Rock' car park up the track. Round of four tops - 1 Corbett, 2 Grahams and 1 Graham top. Mainly ran it on a reasonable day for weather - last for a week.dickscroop30/05/2015

From Coe road, up to track head and pnto Creag Bhan ridge - deep snow. Return same way. Buachille Etive Beag repeat following day lot easier!nordicstar29/11/2008
From the A82 near Achnacon & Signal Rock with Shaky. Used the track beside the Allt na Muidhe & then crossed the river by a bridge underneath the N ridge. Fairly brutal ascent over Creag Bhan to the snowy summit. Then continued NW then N to Meall a'Bhuige. Impatient to get to the Clachaig, we ignored Sgorr a'Choise & headed straight for Meall Mor on the grounds that the hill would still be there another day. There again, the same could be said of the Clachaig... Descended the NE slopes of Meall Mor directly to the car. My knees were in good shape before that.NotReallyABagger01/11/2008
