On the way from Arkle to Meall Horn.Owen B20/04/2019
On way to Arkle. Started from camp site below Bealach Horn.justin99929/06/2018
I decided to descend from Arkle to Lone via Meall Aonghais. Very worthwhile, over quartzite pavements and badlands with good sections on rock ribs or just below them- thus dry underfoot until the last few yards by Bealach an Easain Uaine, where some hags were unavoidable. Down track from there. Glorious sunny day, afternoon light made Lord Reay's Seat look spectacular, the long descent just extended the enjoyment.pwheeler17/05/2018
MMC Tongue trip with Jon Moss. Followed WH route. Initially lovely and sunny to east shoulder then driving rain going over the ridge to summit. 6 hours.alexmaclennan22/10/2017

En-route to Arkle.Aye Jimmy25/04/2000
Camped with friends near Allt Horn at 400m 335454. In the morning it was misty and damp so we stayed late in the tents. We eventually left at 11:00 and navigated with compass to Lochan na Faoileige and Meall Aoghais, to the 757m summit of Arkle and then to the 787m summit. The last part is narrow and rocky although the summit area is flat. It was very windy, but did not rain. We went back to the lowest point of the ridge to point 757m and descended a gully, roughly southwards.pwbellarby18/05/1997
