Beinn a'Mheadhoin is a lovely summit with a great view.
We parked up near Chisholm Bridge. There was a rain last night. The path from the car park to the hydro-track above the Abhainn Gleann nam Fiadh and the hydro-track were quite dry. The ATV track from hydro-track to the summit was mostly boggy, watery but still walkable.

We left the hydro-track just past the last trees on the right side. A small cairn marks the spot where the atv track starts.

The faint ATV track starts here:

ATV track ends roughly 400m of the summit. From this place to the summit there is a grass or short heather.
