Beinn a'Chuallaich the hard way! From Kinloch Rannoch, via Craig Varr (nice views) and Meall Breac, and a circuit via Carn Fiaclach. There are bits of path in places, but also a lot of rough stuff. Splendid views all day.Gill06/05/2016

Parked at the road junction near Dunalastair Water and headed north following the marked track and ridge to summit. There's a huge cairn with the trig nearby. The views were stupendous from the Gorms in the north to Ben Cruachan in the south. Absolutely magic day.BigJ09/07/2015

2nd ascent, with M.douglas_easton07/05/2013
From a forest gate on B847 road to Trinafour at NN702602 where Anne painted a picture of Schiehallion Solo walk. I walked up the road towards Trinafour before heading up a track shown on my map as going through the forest almost to the NW edge. Climbing over a fallen trees and a fence to get out of the forest. Then SW before joining the SSE ridge of Beinn a Chuallaich, which was ascended to the summit, where there is a large cairn situated 20m SSE of the trig point. OS 1:50,000 map gives height as 891 (892) so the first figure must relate to the trig point and the second to the cairn. My approach route to the SSE was not the best of routes! I continued to Meall nan Eun and Meall na Moine.pwbellarby20/04/2013

Descended S ridge to pick up the mapped path (which is excellent) to Druimglas. Found some dwarf birch on slopes of Meall na Eun - first Ive seen for a while.RHW04/09/2010
Short climb initially through bracken, from the B847. Climbed Meall nan Eun first, then found the big cairn in the mist to the south.Windy Corner31/07/2010
I found this corbett a bit of a slog to climb. Enjoying the occasional corbett as they are quieter and less tracks. Enjoyed the scenery from its peak. Company: Jake the Black Lab.iandesbottes16/10/2008

Wintry ascent solo through snow drifts wearing trainers and woolly socks for speedy ascent / descent -cold feet but great fun. Then added from car Drumcroy Hill. Rob's cottage for New Year at Pitlochry.Chris Pearson30/12/1994
Solo. Day trip from Stonehaven. I left the car at 706616 on the B847 road. I started on a track going west and past a bothy after a short distance. Through a gate the track turns northwards but I struck up the hillside and reached the summit of Beinn a Chuallaich. There was a little fresh snow lying on the summit area. There is a large cairn a few metres from the trig point. I returned by a somewhat more northerly route. It was a dry day, and clear during the walk, although earlier there had been mists on the summits. There was fresh snow lying quite extensively on the Carn Mairg range.pwbellarby16/10/1994
