From Strathan, via the forest road to A’Chuil. Climbed west side of burn using a ATV track. Then over E top and summit ridge to a fine rocky top. Stunning views to Loch Morar, Skye and the Small Isles. Descent via Meall nan Spardan and returned via forest road.benalder28409/11/2019

From Strathan, via the forest road to A’Chuil. Towards coire then climb to Meall nan Spardan and ridge to summit of Carn Mor. Returned along ridge to E top and Monadh Gorm (felt like a long way) and descent E to forest track.RobertP23/05/2017
A great hill, but a tough walk, and very glad to be wearing boots for once. Via the forest road to A’Chuil. The ridges either side of Coire an Eich looked a bit gruesome in the rain, but the coire is OK once you get into the blighter. Hint: follow the ATV track, even though it looks silly. I didn’t, which made the climb into the coire harder than it needed to be. Deer tracks lead along the river, and up onto the ridge, a gem, with very fine views of all your favourite Munros and Corbetts. There’s a steep, rocky pointy bit at the end, looking a bit daunting, but there’s an interesting and easy climb rightwards along a broad grassy ramp, which gets you onto the plateau. The smaller, highest cairn gives an incredible view along Loch Morar. Despite rain, hail, snow, and wind, there were good views all day. I walked out via Upper Glendessary, which is shorter. The old bridge has been replaced, but the support timbers are rotting already. It won’t be there long.Gill10/04/2017

MC JC. Day 3 of 4. Spent previous night in A' Chuil bothy with DC. Sweated up on to the ridge from the bothy all the time being plagued with huge swarms of midges and a fine drizzle.. No breeze. Complex and rough ridge. Lots of fissures and 'faults' in the ground near the top. No views. Nearly took the wrong route off the summit to the S but corrected. Descended by the Allt Coire an Eich - beautiful in its lower eaches with swathes of bluebells amongst new bracken growth. Lots of flowers and different birds. Back to A'Chuil and out to Strathan.

Up and down from Glen Pean bothy through melted ice.Eddie15/11/1998
With a friend. We drove to the west end of Loch Arkaig. We walked on the forest track on the south side of Glen Dessary to past A’ Chùil bothy. We followed a vague path to join Meall nan Spardan ridge, with a short lunch break a little below the summit of Meall nan Spardan. We followed the ridge to the summit of Carn Mòr. There were good views to the west and east. It was becoming rather cloudy and we debated whether to descend to the glen bottom or to stay high. We decided to stay high and followed the long ridge over the 616m top to Monadh Gorm. We had it clear as mist descended on other hills. We descended steeply to join the forest track, the last bit following a burn through the forest. There was a slight drizzle.pwbellarby18/07/1998
