Walked up from Drumguish, up Glen Tromie to Bhran Cottage, then up via Allt an Tulaich making for an obvious ATV track, then the W ridge by a cairn. A good walk- I'd never been up this lovely (except the lodge) glen, nor enjoyed the fascinating views to the Minigaig and Gaick, while climbing Munros. Very dry condtions. Bright with a few showers around but cloud base 3000 ft +.pwheeler17/07/2018
Climbed alone. Parked car at Drumguish, walked up road through Glen Tromie, then overgrown path from Bhran Cottage. Dreich, no view from summit.187lenny11/07/2018

A glorious sunny day with a cool breeze. By bike to just past Bhran Cottage. Up Meallach Mhor starting up the Allt an Tulaich on a short ATV track, then easy going to the top. Over Meall an Dubh-cadha on a faint path, and then an ATV track to the bealach. Up rough stuff to Sgor Dearg, and easy short heather over Carn Dearg (there's an ATV track too). Ghastly track to Carn Dearg Mor, but nothing can spoil the view from the top. Down the track, then to the Allt Bhran. The path shown on the map is an OS fantasy, but it's a lovely walk down all the same. More pleasant to cross the river to the landrover track for the last part.Gill05/05/2017
