Wet bag many years ago.gman09/09/1999
I parked near the road end in Glen Etive. Shortly after I arrived somebody else arrived. He asked if he could go up Beinn Trillachan with me, and I agreed. We walked up a rough path slightly west of the boundary of Glenetive Forest until the broad NE ridge of Meall nan Gobhar. We followed that ridge to reach the summit of point 767m, above the Trilleachan Slabs. We descended (slabs and grass in between) and then over a minor top to reach the summit of Beinn Trilleachan. We retraced out steps until at the col before the minor top; we went down the long gully away SE. The gully was mostly rocky boulders, with a few minor steps. We joined a new forest track, and then the original path to reach the cars. There had been some rain, and it was misty on top, so there were no views.pwbellarby05/07/1998

Up and down Meall nan Gobhar gulley from Glen Etive.Eddie29/07/1995
On Loch Creran- Druim a'Vuic- Meall Garbh- Beinn Sgulaird- Stob Gaibhre- Beinn Trilleachan- Trilleachan Slabs- Gen Ure- Loch Creran walk, starting from Drumnavuic. I headed for the watersmeet NNW of the summit, a delightful place with water gliding over slabs. Higher up, it was possible to walk on easy-angled slabs of granite making a 90 degree angle with the slabs above Glen Etive. Rather broad ridge at the summit and difficult to see much of the rock climbing slabs, but still fine views especially of the Etive mountains. This delightful route could be challenging in bad visibility, I think.pwheeler26/05/1995
