Cycled up from Achnacon then round of Lighiche and ChoiseTopographer5731/08/2018
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

Sgorr a' Choise, Meall a'Bhuige, Meall Mor, Am Meall and return via quarry to Ballachulish. Cold and windy on tops.RobertP02/04/2018
From A82 east. Burn difficult to cross after overnight rain. Galltywenallt28/09/2017
From Ballachulish, up the good path along the River Laroch, easily crossed. The Mam Uchdaich path seems to have gone, so it's a thrash to the ridge, but pleasant walking thereafter, with very fine views.Gill25/09/2017
From Glen Coe. Bad knee problem meant I abandoned Anoach Eagach and needed an easier option, with Meall Mor.Jhimmy18/09/2017

Lovely hill with stupendous views. Glorious weather on bank holiday weekend & didn't see a soul all day. Glencoe was absolutely heaving on the drive home afterwards. Did Meall Mor as well.ngthack28/05/2016

First Marilyn of 2 from Ballachulish on a wild walk on lesser, but rarely visited hills. Finding the ford over the R.Laroch took time- though it was cairned- necessary today. The blocky quartzite ridge high up is very fine (though an easy walk).pwheeler28/05/2015
Clockwise circuit from A82. Meall a'Bhuige-Sgorr a'Choise-Meall Mor. With Nathan.MorecambeMonkey17/03/2015

Walked in with Jenx from the school at Ballachulish. Followed the rising track alongside Sgorr Dearg, and at GR 074553 dropped to the burn for a wet crossing and rise to the splendid quartzite ridge on Sgorr a'Choise at 073545 using helpful deer tracks through the heather. Well worth seeking out, a great amble up then direct to summit with views to die for! Onwards to Meall Mhor.nordicstar26/08/2014
