Excellent E to W traverse from Kinlochleven to Callert House over the three tops - Beinn na Caillich, 755m top and Mam na Gualainn. Excellent steep snow to first top - quite challenging, then bouncing along on good snow all along the ridge. Only downside was the descent path which was as wet and boggy as ever.

Wanted a long walk rather then a quick bag. Started at kinlochleven, followed the WHW path to obvious path leading to Beinn na Caillich. Then a 45 min walk to Mam na Gualainn, which looked a million miles away. Returned the same way. Good views.Jhimmy13/10/2016

Two excellent summits with fine views, linked by a very enjoyable high-level ridge. I went up beautifully constructed zigzags up the W slopes of Beinn na Caillich and down to NN107624 where the path shown on the map does not exist- better to have gone to the col. Though there are a few places when the paths are a mess or obscure, one is spoilt by having them nearly all the way,unusual for the Highlands. From Mamore Lodge road end (NN165623- gate with padlock),a 13 mile circuit over the tops and back via Lairigmor. Scallops and Tradewinds IPA afterwards at the MacDonald Hotel. It wasn't like that in Kinlochleven in the 1980s!pwheeler21/05/2014
a hard climb from Kinlochleven via west highland wayAristotle Chip16/08/2013
On the way back from a week in Ardgour with Shaky. A very wet morning had us in the Clachaig for lunch but with better weather forecast for the afternoon, decided to chance our arms on Mam na Gualainn. Parked at the edge of the woods at 095603, E of the Callert House entrance & followed good path N then NE over Callert Lump to summit. On upper slopes, mist started clearing & a glorious sunny view appeared. Returned to col & Shaky went down to the car while I wandered over to Tom Meadhoin & then to its W top where there was a spectacular view.NotReallyABagger09/08/2013
