Solo jog/walk directly up from the road to the east. Not much to recommend on that route apart from its relative brevity.amswanston08/01/2017
From North Amulree on a round of 7 tops. From the South Top, then on to the West Top.jonglew14/11/2016

From Glen Fender: the zigzag track on the map now continues to within about 0.5km of the summit. It's shown on Google satellite view. We started at Amulree, although there is parking at the A826/A822 junction which is nearer.Pete R30/04/2016
Solo for change from road ro East. Curcuit of all tops in just over 2hrs. Deep heather and limited track usefulness.nordicstar15/04/2016

After ascending Meall Odhar, Creag Choille, Meall Dearg Far West Top and Creag an Loch. Now very misty so careful navigation down to the outfall of Loch Fender and up to the summit of Meall Dearg. Descended NE to a track I seen from the road which was not on my 1:50,000 map. Track went SE - wrong direction for me. Decided to follow the line of General Wade's Road through the forest back to car. A miserable wet experience, best avoided!pwbellarby14/06/2014

Forestry road from Griffin Forest CP to Loch Hoil is closed to public. Went to see, and was escorted through forest by site manager after discussion on access. This route will be difficult for some time, they are building a wind farm near Loch Hoil.neimcv29/03/2012
