WIth Jenx, Martin and Brian K. From A889 parking at a very snowy quarry entrance. Followed track past lodge and on for another 1km to thin plantation. Cut up hill through drifted snow to bealach and gain the east ridge of hill. Good line through bluffs and crags to summit. Great all around views. Back same way as in making use of tracks.nordicstar18/01/2015

with renee parked at quarry entrance tracks to lodge to summit.robertphillips22/11/2013
From A889 opposite quarry. Parking is deliberately obstructed by boulders and may be a problem if the quarry is busy. Beyond the lodge the track becomes rough and fords the stream; I stayed on north side as the stream was in spate. Nice all round views from summit.Topographer5727/04/2013
With friend. Parked at quarry entrance at NN635862. Along track to Allt-an-t-Sluic. Sign at start says it's an old drove road but it is not obvious what exactly is the line of this old road. Kept on north side of burn and went up ridge that comes down roughly eastwards from the summit of Meall nan Eagan. Cairn on summit. back approximately same way. Some lying snow and a cold wind.pwbellarby17/02/2013

Afternoon round of The Fara and Meall nan Eagan from Dalwhinnie.Eddie04/11/1995
Meall nan Eagan (NN 596874) S/F NN 635909. Sunny and very warm but with easterly breeze making fly fishing very difficult. Overcast next morning but dry throughout. Overnight camp at 617897 by lochside. Lot of heather to walk through to base of hill and gate with deer fencing across it - dopes - making it useless, had to go under fence. Good views from top with clear sky, very little cloud.John Youngblank
