Long day for one hill but great views from the top. The tracks on my map have changed to what is on the ground, SMC book is more accurate.FCL28/06/2019

Cycled from E end of Loch Arkaig up rather stony land rover track to about 100878, then rough track up to long and rather haggy east ridge. Very warm, very strong sun.Topographer5718/07/2017
Good use of bike along Loch Arkaig. However, track up Glen Mallie was lnot. Rey bike friendly. Bone shaking and I came off the bike on loose gravel. Just past a large dead tree, found a good quad track up on to the ridge at 400 ms, then a faint track along the first part of wide ridge. Short cropped heather and grass. Easy walking in bone dry conditions.Campbell Singer12/05/2017
As part of TGO Challenge route. Clear top and good views.oatcake15/05/2016

From Dark Mile CP. Eas Chia Aig. Spoke to Ron Bell in Glen Mallie.ChrisR06/05/2016
A good bike ride on the whole. We went as far as the high point on the track before it drops to the ruin. Walked up to ridge from there and along to the top and further. Cut down to valley to walk back to bikes. A big day for one hill.jenx20/03/2016
Parked at entrance to estate road GR 172887. Cycled 9km into Glen Mallie, leaving bikes before the road drops to the old ruin. struck up the hill aiming for the ridge end of Druim na Giuthsaich. Onwards along general good ground staying on the ridge to avoid worst of the hags. Summit grandly located at a small cairn. Continued on to the West Graham Top at 671m, before angling back down into the valley and track back to bikes.nordicstar20/03/2016
Noted Richard Tibbets comment, but I am on a mission, not maximising photo opportunities.Martin R28/10/2015
Solo. Round of AC, MO and MCnG from Fassfern.amswanston30/08/2014
Save this for a fine day after you've done the surrounding hills. A splendid vantage point. There aren't many places from which you can see the Ben and both sets of Cullin.richtea504022/07/2014

Mullach Coire nan Geur-oirean (NN049892) S/F NN046923. Camp on north shore of Loch Arkaig. Paddle across and climb hill. Low cloud am clearing pm giving views to Gulvain. Light winds and reasonably warm. Poor decision to descend through wood.John Young01/04/2010
On road, through locked gate onto Lochiel estate. Good surfaced road by Loch Arkaig, in trees to cross the river out of Glen Mallie. To high point on road just beyond a grey tree trunk bent double to find buggy track going directly uphill to the flat top of shoulder. To ridge after 650' very long 3m wander over grassy slopes, crags, green hags involving backwards or sideways movements and loss of height and eventually on short decent grass areas to top at 14.15. Very small cairn on a grassy dome. 8 3/4 hrs back to car.arranc08/07/2009
Bike in to Glen Mallie, long ridge walkfasgadh31/01/2009
Lovely day, sore feet on hard dusty track but good going on long hill ridgealda31/05/2008
As I did not fancy the long walk up Glen Mallie on a hot day, I parked in Glen Loy and crossed to the south of Am Mam. Able to ford the river easily in low water and then ascend the hill. An excellent viewpoint. Returned the same way.JohnW28/06/2005
4th marilyn of 6 in 6 hours before pulling out of a solo 24 in 24 attempt as too tough to maintain the required pace.Chris Pearson27/08/2001

Out and back from Invermallie bothy, ending in a blizzard.Eddie19/02/1999
Was told by man working at junction of Glen Mallie track & Loch Arkaig road that we would not be able to get through with bikes because a bridge is being renewed on Glen Mallie track. Friday 13th September 2019. Drat.rogreevesblank
