Wet and tiring walk in rain and low cloud from Scallastle to Dun Da Ghaithe, Mainnir nam Fiadh trig, then there and back bealach and Sgur Dearg. Walked out along the three masts road back to Craignure. also had to walk back to Scallastle as left other car key in the Scallastle car. 6 hours.alexmaclennan20/05/2017
A traverse including Sgurr Dearg, Meinnir nam Fiadh, Dun da Ghaoithe, Beinn Thunacaraidh and Beinn Mheadhain and diagonal traverse NE to road.Detoured south around bad step coming off Beinn Dearg, could not see a line from above, might have been more obvious from below. Final descent line had much poor ground, tussocks etc, would not really recommend it, there must be a better way. This apart, a good day.dickscroop14/04/2017

Final descent to Scallaste through scrub tricky (NM 694 377) & no obvious route - apparently N via Cnoc a' Bhacain is the way to go.RT197018/09/2015

On the Monster Mull Fell Race.Eddie29/06/2002
Solo. After climbing Sgurr Dearg. The descent of the NE ridge presented a surprise. Shortly after leaving the summit, I met vertical cliffs. I found a way down, and up the other side of the cleft. By the time I reached the col with Mainnir nam Fiadh, I was out of the mist which shrouded the summits and had good views south. I reached the summit of Mainnir nam Fiadh. There is a circular trig point there, to one side of a very large cairn I imagine of great antiquity. The mist to the south had gone, so there were excellent views S. The rain stopped.pwbellarby26/07/1998
