Quick(ish) trig revisit to finish the weekend. Parking at W end of Lochay road (locked gate). Lady at Lubchurran gave me a wave; was gone when I got down, maybe a weekend commuter. Track from there crosses NE slopes at 680m, whence steep dampish slopes lead to trig.RHW05/09/2010

Solo, C. McNeish's Glen Lochay route for Sgiath Chuill & Meall Glas. From Kenknock carpark. NB - no foot bridge at Lubchurran! An exhausting day, lots of steep climbing on open slopes & a long 5km walk back from Batavaime. Dry, clear day with great views.AndyBlair197212/07/2009

A Slow cold and dreary solo day taking in Sgiath Chuil and Meall Ghlasas well. There was a blizzard on the Summit, but I recall enjoying the excitement of it all. Film camera in those days..Shutterlag01/12/2003
Day's walk from Portnellan, with Sambarnz4819/07/2003
first ascent, 6 in group, very cold with snow cover on the summits. climbed from auchessan taking in both munros and tops in a circuit, ground frozen hard and sheet ice right from the road.rum doodle 15/02/2003
Solo. From the main road near Auchessan. I went up the track which goes behind the last house at Auchessan. I crossed the moorland, heading straight for Meall Glas. I avoided the snowfields on the steep ground below the summit to reach the summit. It was very misty on the whole of the summit area. Went east down a considerable snowfield and up to the summit of Beinn Cheathaich. From the summit I went steeply down southwards to a high corrie, eventually following a burn, with some difficulty at times, until meeting the end of the track from Auchlyne. I then found a rather boggy path/track a little west of the burn. This keeps to the west of a fence enclosing a new plantation. The lower part is not obvious.pwbellarby12/03/2000
