Today I bagged my first Munro in four months exactly (when I bagged Beinn Mhanach on 06/03/20) and 111th so far. Today I went to Killin then west along Glen Lochay, to the informal car park for 07:10. Then cycling further west up the glen, to the foot of Sron nan Eun. The way up this involves navigating around two sets of crags, to get up onto the should, then the final push up tot eh summit of Creag Mhor (1047m) for 11:10. I had planned to Beinn Sheasgarnaich as well, but I ate most of my food on the way up and didnít want to push it too far. Dry most of the day, with a brief light drizzle, in the morning and sunshine in the afternoon, back to the car for 14:20, 7hrs after starting. Seen two wee green frogs, I managed to get a photo of one on the descent.chillyman806/07/2020

Parked in the public car park in Glen Lochay and then Creag Mhor and Beann Heasgarnich. Saw one other walker all day who was doing the same walk as me but in the opposite direction. Cloud level was low so lots of navigation through the swamps. A hard day; 10 hours.tsharp18/09/2019

Beinn Heasgarnich and Creag Mhor from Glen LochayHuwel28/03/2019
From the CP before Kenknock, I walked up the hydro road to the top track, leaving it at the Allt Batavaim. I passed the cargs to the left, then too the first grassy gully, weaving upwards on ramps to the ridge below Sron nan Eun, which made a scenic lunch spot. On to Creag Mhor's summit, an out-and-back to the gloriously remote viewpoint of Meall Tionail above Loch Lyon, and back to the horseshoe route and Sron nan Clach, before a long walk out, descending SW, and limboing under the deer fence where it crosses the Allt Cheathaich.Nick Down106/10/2018

From Beinn Sheasgarnaich; from col kept near broken crags to enliven a long ascent. Flowers, insects added interest. Nice top, then good ridge as far as Sron nan Eun. Long walk out along tracks/ hill road. These two give a big day with some very long slopes. Fine today, lots of high cloud by end.pwheeler21/06/2008
