Along the new path and bridge (the Hebridean Way) near Loch na Moracha, then up Mula, and on to Bleabhal. Somewhat windy at the top; the trig makes a useful handhold whilst being blown around to the true summit. The gale and an incipient lurgy forced a retreat from the Meabhal bealach.Gill23/09/2017
After Bolabhal Sgarista. Big rising traverse. Good viewpoint, then down the ridge and diagonally back to car parked under Bolabhal Sgarista. Much easier direct from golf club. With David Baird.Thearlaichdubh21/09/2017
Roadside parking from Scarasta, up and over Meabhal first. On to Mula and Bolabhal Sgarasta for pleasant 12k jaunt with Andrew P.jonglew20/09/2017
From the old post office. Gradual ascent on mostly easy ground.AndrewFinnimore08/10/2016
Started from NG036885 via Druim nan Caorach. With Francis. Continued onto Meabhal, Bolabhal Sgarasta and Greabhal returning across boggy ground to road. Noted presence of a newly constructed path/track leaving the road at approx NG027884 in a northerly direction with footbridge over inflow to Loch na Moracha. We crossed the same 'path' at around NG003908 and NG020894 although at both points it was an informal path (slightly boggier than the surrounding bog)raffemeister03/04/2016
