Hard work after Beinn Bhuidhe in the morning, but closer views of Cuillins.davechaffey07/05/2024
Day trip from Mallaig, like clockwork save the issue booking late with the ferry then being dropped onto a standby for the return journey… plenty time between, was even another ferry meter. Oh for the old days of a single ferry (not every day of the week either). Stunning dry weather flat calm and with a gentle cool breeze no midge.N.Morters29/05/2023
Up track north from Inverie. Shorty after track starts to descend towards Folach Bridge there is a wooden gate in the deer fence that is easy to climb over and then ascend west to Bealach following line of burn. Short climb to top from there. Quite a big cairn.Jossker20/05/2023
From Inverie up track, then round deer fence and up SE ridge to summit. KeithByTheC03/05/2023
From Inverie up track to deer fence, followed RHS of older deer fence to new deer fence, easy to cross in corner. Angled across towards summit, easily up lhs of stream until it was obvious to cross and around to summit. Off South West side across to Roinn na Beinn. Descended NW ridge, then down to deer fence above Sandaig Burn, followed this down to road, then Lagan Bridge snd back yo Inverie. 11 miles.JulieB01/05/2023

From Inverie with Ger and Dangerous Dave. Followed recommended route via burn just after junction at 766028. Steady climb west. Sat out the thunderstorm for about 45 minutes. Clear when we got on top.bolton14/08/2022
Walked in from Inverie with Ger & bolton. Sat out a heavy downpour and thunderstorm as we reached the start of the ridge. The storm moved northeast and the clouds cleared, giving us good views from the summit. Back the same way.Dangerous Dave14/08/2022
From Inverie campsite along road to Lagan Bridge then Roinn na Beinne, Meall Garbh nan Gobhar West top, Meall Garbh nan Gobhar and Druim na Cluain-airighe. Descent into Coire na Craoibhe and deer fence handrail to track S back to Inverie. Weather deteriorated as day progressed with low cloud, wind and rain. Reunion walk with Arthur after about 40 odd years!richard6921/05/2022
From the Old Byre, Inverie. Lovely paths shortcut up through bluebell woods to join the more tedious hill track. Up the N side of the stream, just past Folach Gate. Old style navigation in thick mist is hard, many lumps and bumps, compass needed uphill. Nice summit ridge, despite no views. Down Scotas burn, mist cleared to fine views. Easy descent until the tussocks and other hostile vegetables through the fenced area, but nice going through the trees at the end. Lovely walk in the sun around the bay.Gill15/05/2022
With ProfRob & MKG at Knoydart Shills meet. Clag on top but sunshine on walk. Out and back by obvious route from Inverie. Rounsfell06/09/2019
From Inverie via track and N side of deer fence - reasonable terrain - terrific views of surrounding peaks.Chris Peart10/05/2019
Up from track junction on the way back from Caillich. Stay on north side of fence to avoid screaming. A nice day but a bit too warm and calm. Clegs out and biting.Topographer5703/07/2018

Track from Inverie then pathless slog to the top.AndrewFinnimore23/06/2015
Solo. Cairngorm Club meet based at Knoydart Foundation Bunkhouse at Inverie. Used track that goes towards Inverguseran. Went through gate in high deer fence to west of track, but this was a mistake as I had to climb over the fence later. Got to summit of Druim na Cluain-airighe. The views were really good - to Small Isles and inland to various Knoydart peaks. Went S to Beinn Breac and its SE top. Went S on rough ground and found a path that took me down to the road.pwbellarby05/04/2015

Detour on way back from Beinn na Caillich. Directly up hillside from E where track from Beinn na Caillich emerges from forest. Nice summit and nice cairns on this hill. A 'must-do' Marilyn whilst in this remote area (well, remote if you don't use a boat to get there).Aye Jimmy06/06/2007
