From the NTS car-park, along the boardwalk and along the track running alongside Loch Shiel to Guesachan. Up the North ridge of Meall a Choire Chruinn (great views over the loch as you rise), then onto Sgurr Ghiubhsachain and along the ridge to Meall nan Creag Leac. Returned down the north flank back to the lochside track. Around 5 hrs in total. Superb walk.summitter11/05/2019

#9 of 9 from Callop, steep grassy descent from Goosachan, fine ridge down to eponymous (fish) farm with a few rock steps to avoid. Track back to Callop. 19mi 12h30 3800mRHW06/05/2018
Meall a'Choire Chruinn, Sgurr Ghiubhsachain, Sgorr Craobh a'Chaorainn, Meall Na Cuartaige from N. Spectacular spring day with bright sunshine and very little breeze.RobertP10/04/2016
A short day up and down from Glen Finnan and Glen Shiel track. Initially up stream but then cut up to ridge too early on awkward tussocky ground. Much better descent line. On way up stick with old track near stream until about 150 metres beyond a distinctive wooden post for much better line up.dickscroop02/03/2016
