up good path from Grotaig through birch woods, then along northeast ridge KeithByTheC05/08/2019

5.7 mile there and back walk up tourist path from car park, in sun/high cloud. The trail is very easy to follow and very nice through proper woodland at bottom then climbs up onto the hill itself, some areas that would usually be boggy are completely dry at the minute so made for easy walking, up to the summit, one of the best views we have had in the Highlands and the mountain is only 699m!DanTrig12/06/2018

Solo. From car park at Grotaig along signposted hill path to Meall Fuar-mhonaidh. Rather muddy in parts. There are three tops, all with cairns on them. Highest one is the one furthest west. Returned same way. Nice day with just a few drops of rain and excellent visibility.pwbellarby21/10/2017
Walked up with Suzie. Very boggy for majority of the way up. Snow on summit.Ben Lowery10/01/2017
Muddy tourist path up, then on to Glas-bheinn Mhor.Topographer5723/09/2016
From Grotaig parking. Track and path normale to the summit, thereafter the back fells to second Marilyn Glas Bhein Mhor. Cut round over rough ground to eventually regain upwards track.nordicstar15/10/2015
With J from the car park at Grotaig following the path up to the motorway which leads all the way to the summit of Meall Fuar-mhonaidh for a fine view. Continued SW to the point where the ground above the loch becomes shallower in gradient & then down & straight across to Glas-bheinn Mhor. Headed E round the N tip of Loch nam Breac Dearga over roughish ground & then a slanting ascent back up the slope to rejoin the outward route. I was tired enough but J had done a morning of horse riding beforehand!NotReallyABagger12/05/2015
First of year. Tourist path. However icy and very windy. Large party in front of ms turned back. Foolhardy me kept going. Nice top and then carried on to t'other Marilyn.Martin R02/01/2015

Solo. With GBM, from Alltsigh. Bike to 438216 - steep climb up, good fun descent.amswanston27/09/2013
From the car park next to the pottery. Very easy route up a good path. In the clag so no views.bowlesy30/08/2013
From the car park at the road head. Beautiful clear day with fantastic views down the Great Glen. Jets flying down the glen below up added to the day. Also say a rare fog bow as we emerged out of the valley fog (like a rain bow but white).mindlessflogger24/12/2012

Nice walkmfel5708/10/2010
Easy walk from (and parking at) Balbeg. Stayed at a B&B in 2014 where they'd never done a proper hillwalk and asked for advice. I suggested this hill- easy but yes a hillwalk for sure and iconic (I think this is acceptable usage!) views of the Highlands. This hill stands out in the view from Chanonry Point- that says a lot in its favour.pwheeler28/05/2010
From A82 by Lochness Hostel (Alltsigh), along forest road until able to go straight to top. Then southwest till past tarn and then northwest to Glas-bheinn Mhor.Alan Moore29/08/2008
