Up from P145, on B845, as parking space at P157 already taken, steeply up then a moorland plod but some good all round views.Chris Peart17/11/2019

After an aborted attempt of a nearby Graham we went for this. Having not any walk descriptions we tried to determine the actual top out the 4 350m+ peaks on the OS 1:25K. Using 2 older phones and brand new Sony with all positioning systems we found that the North East top was the highest by one metre. It wasn't until we returned home that I found the south east top is now generally considered to be highest. Either way it's in the bag (trig as well)kiltedbiggles30/05/2018
Evening run, weather too good to miss after Beinn Lora earlier. From Gleann Salach high point small space to pull off near small waterfall. Steep up then over a rather lumpy summit area then over to summit trig, glad it was clear and sunny. Great viewpoint, better at trigpoint.N.Morters04/04/2018

Ran it. Not the world's most exciting hill.Colinmac200506/04/2017
From hairpin near high point on road. Followed track to west, goes close to trig point and then onto high point, (seems polite to visit both). Hot, sunny, calm, and good views.iangalbraith09/06/2016
Gavin Theobald03/12/2015
Nearly fouled up here. Only logged on to hill bagging at the trig pillar to find that highest point was 2.9m higher way off 460m to the north east. Phew!!vegibagger16/10/2015
From B845 gateway, up and down steep slopes.rhalstead25/09/2015
Start point was from the road b845 grid ref:NM985 365 Sunny day good walk with the familydougalbug525/07/2015
Climbed with MT and Chris Bienkowski from near the high point of the B845. There was much up and downhill work involved, the terrain was much more undulating than the map indicated.Sprog05/06/2015
Parked in a lay-by on the minor road through Gleann Saladh at NM 98499 36851 - room for one car parked carefully. Followed ATV track for a little way up south-east flank of the hill, then over some minor bumps to a lochan. Skirted its northern shore, then steeply up to new summit, as surveyed by AD. Did not visit trig point. Returned much the same way. With AT and CB.Man of Kernow105/06/2015
As per Sprogchrisbien05/06/2015
First logged ascent after relocation of summit, in order to photograph new top. Walked up the B845 from junction near Inveresragan, followed track from NM 985368 to NM 978366, headed north to top SW of highest point, then crossed NE to summit. Descent southwards past west side of lochan for portrait view and to pick up track back to B845, then south and along lochside road to Ardchattan.mainnirnamfiadh22/04/2015

from the high point on minor road, to the 4 high points.robertphillips14/02/2015
Parked on B845. Track to begin with then moorland. Nice weather, good view.Play2End03/03/2014
Up from Beallach (150m) on B845 w Jenx. Direct line to top, ignore traversing track - wet and off line. Summit trig splendid location. Other tops clearly lower, to SW; those to NE visited but appeared lower too. Direct back to start over tussocky wet ground.nordicstar02/01/2014
From the eastAndrewFinnimore28/12/2013
From road junction at Inveresragan. Despite all the hot weather the hill was very wet and boggy. I am 98% certain the summit is not the trig on this one although I visited it just in case, true summit north east of trig.Columba17/07/2013
From top of B845 after a rather tedious drive around. Hand held GPS readings suggest the flat rock top is the HP, about 2m higher than the trig point, but it's too close for me to call.Topographer5727/03/2013
Solo. Round of Beinn Bhreac, Beinn Molurgainn, Beinn Mheadhonach, and Na Maoilean. Constant heavy snow from road level made these hills quite an interesting challenge.amswanston13/01/2013
