Outstanding long route from Arieniskill. Meith Bheinn West Top, Meith Bheinn, An Stac, An Stac North Top, camped low down return along ridge. Continued to climb Druim a' Chuirn, descent to Slaite Coire, down to River Meoble before rough ascent to pass and return to car. Excellent 2 day weather window between days of rain.RobertP28/05/2019
From Glen Pean bothy. Early start. Very useful stalkersí path from rock fall and then a pleasant walk following burn. Stunning views along Loch Morar and beyond. Final Graham celebrated with Alan Whatley. Fabulous morning. Then on to north summit.Campbell Singer02/05/2019

Viv's Morarboat to Oban bothy. Direct up hill between a V line between two burns, aiming for a large rectangular boulder at nearly 500m. A steep pull rewarded by easy line thereafter to summit. Day turned dreek as we went on to Meith Bheinn and Druim a' Chuirn before returning to the bothy via stalkers path in Glen Taodhail, crossed high up as now in spate!nordicstar10/08/2016
A great round of hills. Just a shame that the promised fine day did not materialise. So wet on the way out! Everything running water.jenx10/08/2016
From Strathan. Went S of large lochan (John Barnard reports N side is diabolical). Past rockfall, took stalker's path N then ridge to Cnoc Gorm. Bypassed small lochan and rockfall on higher ground to S on return - this would be a better ascent route.Galltywenallt15/04/2016
Second visit and all to claim the north top. Tough round from Oban bothyColin Crawford12/04/2016
From the bothy. And then over Drum aChuirn and Meith Bheinn to the road.Martin R09/09/2015

An excellent mountain; well worth the effort of reaching it.richtea504015/04/2014

An obliging boatman meant that I could get to the Oban bothy at the east end of Loch Morar to climb this hill in only 5 3/4 hours. The excellent stalkers path to the east of the hill goes right around the hill and back to the bothy.arranc14/06/2013

Ascended after a long walk along Glen Pean from Strathan. Picked up the path from Oban, which surprisingly had old railings in steep places to help the ascent. A remote hill, which is best climbed as on this occasion in good weather.JohnW19/05/2004
