Was supposed to be an easy bonus after an early finish on the Rois-Bheinn round of three Corbetts. Parked at the large layby on the A830 above Loch Dubh. Hadn't read the reports so followed the path to 733830. Then up a fairly steep broad gully, this was hard work. Then SE to the summit. Took a much more direct line NE off to the railway bridge, a certain amount of fiddling about avoiding steep sections and clumps of trees, but preferable to the ascent.Owen B21/06/2018

From the large layby on A830 followed path over railway. Continued to where path starts to descend and then up to Loch Camas Radigh. Slimy under foot. From Summit continued west to pick up path and on to Peanmeanach Bothy. Very pleasant day out.mindlessflogger20/12/2017
parked large layby 743836 path over railway then straight up after the 2 plank bridge.robertphillips02/12/2017
From the top of the Peanmeanach path - found traces of a path up to the ridge.Chris Peart22/11/2017
Wholly impractical diversion on the way into Peanmeanach for the night over difficult ground and through severe downpours for the last hour, but we got the hill bagged and that is all that counts in the end.Alex C15/06/2017
Marked path to Peanmeanach over the railway footbridge, then SW.Topographer5702/05/2017
From lay-by parking on A830, then the marked track. After Loch Dubh took the riding line to first high point then left that bearing direct up hill. Around a number of rocky turfy knolls to summit with cairn.nordicstar13/03/2016
Interesting terrain for such a small hill. A lot of frogs about.jenx13/03/2016
From layby at Polnish and then to open gtound once over railway and loch outlet. Very windy and squally hail showers so this was a lower level alternative to big hills. Could hardly stand at the top or face into the hail to take in the views which must be good. Enjoyable nonetheless.benalder28415/11/2015
Parked in the layby at Polnish and took the path to Peanmeanach. At 731830 headed up easier ground in a south easterly direction to the summit. Solo.bolton30/09/2015
From layby on A830, S of Polnish. Took a longer way up (not leaving the path until I was NW of summit) and a more direct way down - route and write-up are at: http://gayleybird.blogspot.co.uk/2015/05/cruach-doiran-raoigh-and-meall-bhainne.htmlGayle08/05/2015
from Layby at Polnish in mist and drizzle. Shame because it must have fine views.Thearlaichdubh03/04/2015
Solo, from Polnish. Up via path to west then cut back to summit. Down more directly to railway bridge.amswanston29/08/2014
Took a line E of Loch Camas an Raoigh and watched the Jacobite steam post below. This route may become a fight but in 2014 the vegetation was only just starting to recover from a fire. Descended using the path to Penmeanach at its highest point. It would have been worth going right down to the coast at Penmeanach and making a day of it. Lovely peninsula, sweet spot for the weather on day.pwheeler22/05/2014
Always have difficulty locating start of path to Peanmeanach but eventually find it. Along path and up to summit.AndrewFinnimore25/08/2013
Parked in big layby on south side of A830, from which the track starts from. The track is obvious and easy to follow all the way round the side of the hill, once clear of all the trees I picked a route up onto the top and cut back across to the summit.Columba07/08/2013
Used track to headland, typically mist came in and obscured the view and back along ridge over the summit. Recall seeing this hill widespread with fire a year ago. Lots of evidence still. Hard to believe it was so dry when the path seems to consist of endMartin R12/03/2012

Took the path from the A830 to get up through the trees. Note the path takes a left turn not long after it enters the trees. If you miss that a smaller path takes you down to loch Beag, I found out :(. Otherwise a good hill which my 4 year old loved.garyhoney18/06/2010
nice little hill.. dodgy comming of the north face, charlie fell down a cravase!tom smith23/03/2010
Parked in lane by lay by on A 830 where road works had been finished. Lost way from signed path into swampy area past a shack, over a deer fence, railway and deep stream bed to regain path through 3' bracken. Uphill over tussock, small rocks and bracken using deer footprints to next cross ridge. More assured clamber to skyline and to top at 10.45. Loch nan Uamh in wild display. Cloud over everything at a distance.arranc23/05/2008
With two friends. From Polnish walked on footpath towards Peanmeanach Bothy. Climbed Cruach Doir’ an Raoigh on way to bothy. Others walked directly to the bothy. Much snow on the high hills. Elite Bothy Club AGM with much hilarity. It rained a lot, starting as we arrived at the bothy.pwbellarby21/12/2004
