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 Oban bothy on a breezy but beautiful day with marvellous visibility.NormanW04/05/2017
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 Druim a'Chuirn) Cramp in left leg and then in the right, but luckily this wore off quite soon. Seeing a grassy rake leading up to the higher parts of the hill made my way along this below the serrated ridge above. Wind now behind me. A further 950' of ascent. Moved to the left to avoid a deep chasm falling into the glen and up to the top at 14.10. Vanessa column 9788 with its now famous inscription in concrete - OS P J MCNICOL B BARLOW May 1965. The re-triangulation finished in 1962 so this was a rebuild - perhaps their last? Slowly down on grass slopes revealing themselves as height was lost between rocky prows. To the side of a stream and crossed it at a narrow (but deep) part getting both feet soaking wet - to the upward path and through the settlement to the pier at 16.45 - 15 mins after the end of the boatman's estimated 7 hours for the walk. Mrs B took 11 1/2 hours for this walk from the road in 1997.arranc10/05/2012

Trig revisit. Fine complex hill, fine summit & view. Revisited during TGO Challenge.RHW14/05/2008
Walked in from Arieniskill to the River Meoble in good clear weather but very wet underfoot, making for slow progress. Ascended by west ridge. Very remote and impressive hill. Not time unfortunately to include Druim a'Chuirn, but able to return over Creag Bhan.JohnW27/04/2004
