G and Aarthurwhittaker19/07/2019
MC O Climbed from Loch Arkaig Straight up hydro track and up beside the small stream. Deep grass and hard going. Round trip in 2h 10. Brilliant views westwards down Loch Arkaig and great autumn colours.Martin6606/10/2018
From the Butterfly reserve. None seen, perhaps because of the cold. Direct to Sgurr Coinnich on an ATV track almost all the way. Lovely walk, on snow towards the top, with splendid views. Down to the col and across the rough stuff to Meall Blair. The snowy summit plateau was splendid, so promenaded along the highest part to a small cairn. Easy back to the Lochan, then a nasty, never ending descent on quagmired ATV track, and a small amount of road bash, very pleasant along Loch Arkaig. Quite a strenuous walk. In answer to the queries, the nail posts are to hang up dead animals or birds.Gill11/11/2017
Same route as ngthack. I think the nails in the posts are to prevent the deer/sheep scratching their backs on the posts and knocking them down. The new track is very helpful but a bit loose on the descent.nicolajane29/10/2017
Left car at foot of butterfly trail, cycled up tom 075920 and returned to car via two Grahams.Topographer5717/07/2017
Up the track from the SE. Rain and gales. With NS and Greg.amswanston26/02/2017
Used new hydro scheme road to loch, then followed nailed posts until they started going downhill. Been puzzling about the nails ever since.ngthack25/05/2016

Actually hot at times until the summit, confirmed as the trig point.alda08/09/2015
With Dave Roeder. Parked just beyond Caonich (13:15) & took a path which joined a new road to a small hydro scheme building by the loch. Followed ridge easily to the summit. Great views of Ben Nevis, Grey Corries. Talked to workmen near dam. Finish 17:10dbb13/05/2015
Lethal looking wooden posts with nails (why?) sticking up out of the snow. Horrid new track lower down. Snow made easy walking higher up.Martin R27/12/2014
Classic scots weather today, views to die for.nordicstar24/08/2014
With M, staying at Achnacarry. Loads of snow, got boot stuck on summit.douglas_easton23/03/2014
round of 2 grahams from butterfly carpark.robertphillips18/01/2014
Straight up from 100m west of Caonich over tussock and fairly dry bog following the easiest gradient. Trig is almost certainly the summit, visited other cairn just in case. This hill was the worst for clegs I have ever encountered!Columba25/07/2013

Meall Blair (NN077950) S/F NN055923 Cool for May, light to moderate wind, sunny spells with broken cloud at >3000' giving good views across loch. Unmarked track can be followed to about 600m height. Summit would require careful navigation in poor visibility but trig point allows clear identification once found.John Young01/05/2011
Ascended from Loch Arkaig in perfect conditions.JohnW20/06/2010
Parked just beyond Caonich. On buggy track up to brow of hill then stakes until upper part of hill came into view. Some stream crossings detours around swamps made by buggies, past Loch Blair to the left, two small rocky prows to the top at 11.45. Column 9704. Views all round. Ciche and the Ben. Watershed hill.arranc10/07/2009
