From beach CP across the sand of beautiful Kiloran Bay, over a fence and grass to the concrete track. A zigzag pathlet up Carnan Eoin, passing primroses. Down to the telegraph gully and steeply up Beinn Bheag. Through heather down the far side to the track, leaving it to ascend Meall na Monadh. More or less in a straight line to Dun Crom - the electric fences were switched off. Round the obligatory tour des summits in the two highest rocky eminences. Too close to call: if anything the highest point on the scramble western top might edge out the phogrsphed summit in the eastern top. Back along the track and across the beach.Nick Down119/04/2019

Descent North to meet track heading towards Meall na Monadh...Dazingdale09/05/2018
Taxi from Scalasaig to end of B8086 at start of Balnahard track. On this track, then concreted section, to gully between Beinn Bheag and Càrnan Eoin, up gully past electricity poles to bealach, then steeply left to top. Goat at summit saw me approaching and scarpered. Cloud, wind, a nd rain, so no view. Back down to bealach, down path northwards, then round hill to rejoin Balnahard track, making for Meall na Monadh.mainnirnamfiadh28/09/2016
