pathless route down southwest ridge of Meall Fuar-mhonaidh, then past outflows of Loch nam Breac Dearga and smaller lochan to northwest KeithByTheC05/08/2019
A very pleasant walk up from Alltsigh (excellent refurbed hostel) through forestry above the river gorge. Over the bridge, though a gate and an older track continues to join the water board road. All very pleasant with regenerating woodland, roches moutonees and fine views. Followed an ATV track up the hill for a while, then up to the top on deer tracks. Fine views and several small bumps to bag in case of tamperers. More direct line down.Gill07/06/2019

Solo. From Alltsigh along tracks through forest and then open ground to dam at NH434213. Up hillside to summit of Glas-bheinn Mhòr. Much snow above 400m not continuous but mostly firm and good walking. Excellent views of snow-covered hills on a fine sunny day. Back down same way.pwbellarby24/02/2018

From Grotaig parking. Track and path normale to the summit of Meall Fuar-mhonaidh, thereafter the back fells to 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
