Visited with Iain Brown and Alan Dawson. There are two cairns but neither are at the highest point. The grassy knoll between the two is about 5 metres higher. There is a small pile of stones there which suggests I'm not the first to spot this.chriswatson22/05/2013

Camping with friends about the 350m level on the Barrisdale – Mam Barrisdale path. Circuit of Luinne Bheinn and Meall Buidhe. My prime objective was Luinne Bheinn so I elected a solo walk to do that first. The others preferred to do Meall Buidhe first. I walked up the track to the top of Mam Barridale. I did not follow the path up Luinne Bheinn to begin with. The path avoids minor tops. I went up over minor tops at ~550m and ~650m and the over Bachd Mhic an Tosaich (665m). I then joined the normal path that ascends straight up to the summit of Luinne Bheinn.pwbellarby01/06/2008
