Meall nan Eun has a wide and long summit plateau, grass covered and delightful to wander across. However as this crest rests above crags and slabs, some intricate route planning will be required to find a way up.

Meall nan Eun can be approached from Glen Etive through Glen Ceitlein, most likely combining the mountain with its neighbouring Munro, Stob Coir' an Albannaich.

Another approach heads in from Victoria Bridge by Loch Tulla, cycling along the estate tracks following the Abhainn Shira and aims to Meall nan Eun's summit from the south-west, the easiest route up the hill.
