Ascended on fairly good paths from Kinlochleven to Meall na Cruaidhe, then easy going up the ridge to the summit. Returned to Meall na Cruaidhe then south to dam and down the scenic riverside path.davidpettit8429/12/2019

Sections of Loch Eilde path neither in good condition nor well drained, but there is now a new bridge at the outflow and the pipe obstructions mentioned by Gill have been addressed.Topographer5704/09/2018

Solo from Kinlochleven. First mountaineering trip in campervanJohn Lee22/08/2017
A nice easy stroll on paths, providing that you can figure out a way to get through the hydro construction site at the outflow of Loch Eilde Mor. It’s no problem that the bridge has been removed; the difficulty is getting over or below the massive plastic pipe. Over requires an ankle breaking jump; below requires a delicate traverse of huge, unstable boulders close to the dam. The path onwards is pleasant, and the stroll up the hill is easy and fairly dry. To avoid the hydro, I walked back towards the Blackwater. Off piste wandering when the path petered out meant that I missed the descent to the Ciaran path, so I followed a good path by a concrete pipe, then a steep, rough, traversing descent to the main path. Very scenic through woods by the river, except at the end where the hydro scheme has left a massive trail of destruction, more like a landslide than a construction site. Angry.Gill07/04/2017
Mist, nice lot of snow to make it challenging. Please to find summit without compass which was back at base by simply keeping going up hilldavechaffey09/11/2016
Work going on today at the dam at the W end of Loch Eilde Mor so I wasn't allowed to cross it(H&S). There's another (temporary?) crossing at 21476/62941. Also went to Beinn na Cloiche.duchally16/09/2016
A dull hill, enlivened by the golden eagle which erupted from the steep slope just twenty feet below meColin Crawford17/05/2016
From Kinlochleven. Scottish 6 day bike trials also there so glad to get away from the noise. Decided on longer route to Blackwater, then north. Good choice as route was interesting in the gorge. Weather turned poor 45 minutes before the summit, thick cloud and heavy drizzle. Soaking wet by the time I got back.Jhimmy04/05/2016

28th – Solo. Snow level down to 400m. Visibility very good except in short snow showers. From Kinlochleven, round Meall na Duibhe, along ridge, return along Loch Elide Mor.RGibbs17/02/2016
A diversion on the walk in to Loch Chiarain bothy. A drizzly wet day but not too bad. Bothy OK except for three dead and rather smelly deer outside door (been there for at least 2 months according to bothy lodge) and no fuel for fire due to a complete absence of trees.dickscroop04/06/2015
Started at the Grey Mares waterfall car park in Kinlochleven and headed up a good track through woods to Loch Eilde Mor. I continued on towards Glas Bheinn up easy slopes to the summit. I decided to visit its North East point of Carn Dearg and then went down grassy slopes in an Easterly direction to ascend the Graham Beinn na Cloiche. From there I descended down easy angled slopes in a Southwesterly direction to pick up my footpath back. Took about nine hours but glorious weather with superb views.Peterb23/04/2015

From Loch Charain bothy with DCMartin6628/03/2010
Done from Loch Chiarain bothy walking in the previous day with Martin66 & Calum. Calum was using this as training for a planned 100 Munros in 100 days jaunt, although his feet seemed to have other ideas as he went through a whole packet of Compeed - my Compeed - on the walk in to the bothy. Left Kinlochleven & followed the path through the woods alongside the River Leven to the reservoir dam & continued over rougher ground to the bothy. A cold night not helped by Calum insisting we light the fire & burn all our fuel way too early. He then bailed out the following morning while Martin66 & I headed N up to Beinn na Cloiche. We then traversed W over very rough stuff to the N ridge of Glas Bheinn which we followed to the summit as occasional snow showers swept in. Descending the broad SW slopes was easy enough to rejoin the outward path to Kinlochleven - and a hobbling Calum - for tea & cakes at the Ice Factor. Not sure if Calum ever managed 1 Munro in 100 days afterwards never mind 100.NotReallyABagger28/03/2010

From Kinlochleven to Loch Eilde Mor, up to summit then back by Blackwater ReservoirGallovidian18/05/1998
Solo. From Kinlochleven I walked up the path to Loch Eilde Mòr. I followed the path which goes over Meall na Cruaidhe. At 550m I struck a line for the summit of Glas Bheinn, finding a somewhat ill-defined path. I descended ~ S – low down finding a path besides an unnamed burn which drains the SW slopes of Glas Bheinn. I followed the path on the north side of River Leven. Very good weather – clear with very good views – Crowberry Tower on Buachaille Etive Mòr showed up well, for example. The paths were very icy, due to the low temperature – colder than the day before.pwbellarby25/01/1998
