From Knoydart bunkhouse, up An t-Uiriollach, then Meall Buidhe, followed by its East Top, returned the same way. Horrible day with cloud above 400m driving rain showers and strong winds, with Alex McBride, had planned to do the other munro as well, but conditions not suitable.chillyman825/05/2022
Sourlies bothy to Inverie over Meall Buidhe & Top, Luinne Bheinn & Top and Ladhar Bheinn and Top. Very hot day. Camp at Inverie, feryy back to Mallaig next dayHuwel07/05/2022
Solo round of Luinne Bheinn & Meall Buidhe from Long Beach campsite - decided to do the route clockwise to make it a longer walk-in than walk-out, not sure if that was the best choice as the descent off Druim Righeanaich was not fun on tired legs. Fairly warm (ended up with some tasty sunburn) and very little wind meant a lot of fluids needed. I had hoped to get around in under 9h, but it ended up being 9h 15min - tougher day than expected.mproudfoot07/05/2022

Camping with friends about the 350m level on the Barrisdale – Mam Barrisdale path. Circuit of Luinne Bheinn and Meall Buidhe. From Sgurr Sgeithe I went back up the ridge to the South-east Top of Meall Buidhe and on to the main top of Meall Buidhe. From Meall Buidhe I went down westward and stopped for a bite to eat. I continued up to the summit of An t-Uiriollach I returned to the col with Meall Buidhe and went down the glen to the north, keeping well east of the burn. I reached the Mam Barrisdale track and walked on it back to the camp site. Very good walking conditions - dry with a breeze.pwbellarby01/06/2008
