Pushed and occasionally cycled up CRLS track to tree line then due west over tussocks and occasional deer tracks and over an unstable deer fence. Returned along ridge and back up to the masts, a nicer albeit longer route bar a tussocky and haggy col that also included the deer fence. Note: others have driven up but trailhead is now defended by NUV sign and lockable gate.Topographer5727/05/2019
Cracking ridge around from Meall Mor after ascent of mast track.Chris Peart03/07/2018
From the A83 to the East. Up the track on foot leading to the masts on Meall Mot. Then cross to Odhar where great views to both Arran and Jura. Back via forest edge. Total 15k but could have driven part way to halve walking distance. My final Region 19 MarilynNormanW14/05/2018
From the large parking area on the B8024 just east of Loch Arail. It was awkward navigating in the mist; cloud level 250m. I would not recommend this approach as it was rough and wet.Alan Moore09/04/2018
Late afternoon run, up the mast track from the east. Then over the moorland to a shapely summit ridge. Fine hill, great views to Arran and Jura. Note the woodland is being felled along the track at time of ascent.N.Morters02/02/2018
Parked on CRLS road just before heavy machinery working. Then easy 2 miles walking to masts. Decided to ignore invitation to take hill walk but instead kept to higher ground. Still had the deer fence to get over but then a nice ridge walk to summit in sun shine and heavy rain in equal amounts.garyhoney27/07/2017
Parked halfway up mast road above lochan, thereafter track only suitable for a 4x4. Took direct line to summit at odd signpost saying HILLWALK. Indistinct path across saturated ground.AndrewFinnimore23/06/2017
With Jenx using the CRLS road. Picked up Meall Mor on way plus tops along ridge to summit. Easy enough bag.nordicstar17/04/2016
Up the mast track then across the tops.jenx17/04/2016
Walk 'CRLS' road to tree line then W over rough grass steepening to gain summit ridge. Cold wet dreek and moderate W wind. At the possible risk of a 'telling off' the road is driveable all the way to the summit of Meall Mor.RichardM01/03/2016
along side of meall mor to bealach to the top parked at 839743 rough track.robertphillips06/09/2015
From signs to CRLS at 863740. Plenty of parking. very fine hill but very rough from road onto hill. Fine viewpoint, then I did the HuMP which is swallowed up by a windfarm.Thearlaichdubh31/08/2013
From loch Arail to the north. Tough, trackless tussocks for milespeebs20/05/2009
Up track to Meall Mor. Sunny, hot, early mist in valleys, good views.iangalbraith06/06/2007

Revisit. Grass and rock summit, rainswept, reached from E across wet tussocky ground, then steep grassy climb. Forest road rough but driveable.RHW21/04/2007
Park at side of Loch Fyne. Up into forest on a wide forest road on zig zag over stream, under pylons. Very cold. Almost to top of mast covered Meall Mhor then over dry tussock down to a wide bealach with 3 swampy streams to cross. Over 8' new deer fence with no visible stiles. On a left traverse climbing to ridge with gale force wind in face. To top at 12.05. No cairn. No view.arranc24/04/2006
From road via forest tracks and return over Meall Mor.Eddie25/05/2003
