Debs & Tali, late start, Rocky Tops of Beinn Sgulaird as per Pocket Mountains, Central Highlands.Mountain Goat19/09/2019
From Druimvuic on estate track then east over NE top and on to Meall Garbh main summit. Returned by similar route but taking in Creag na cathaig which I had missed in cloud on way out. Decent enough weather but tops all in cloud so no views which I think may have been quite good otherwise.dickscroop29/12/2017

Two summit rocks seem of equal height and both higher than the cairned top. Solo.Dangerous Dave09/07/2016
Solo. I had a great night at The Onich Hotel with two tattoo artists, both called Troy and a musician called Jamie. Didn't plan this walk and subsequently thought this summit was Creach Bheinn. Found out it wasn't when I returned to the van at Druimavuic!Dangerous Dave06/07/2016
