|Hot day, great walk. Drove up the Glen Lochay hydro road as far as possible then followed the old drovers road across meadow, railroad sleepers and steel girders to the ghost village of Shielings, then an easy steady ascent along the southern ridge of Beinn nan Oighreag. Took a direct easterly descent to, the probably boggy most of the year, Lairig Bhreislich, which was straightforward in super dry conditions, to enable an assault on the northern ridge of Meall Ton Eich. From there it was onwards to Creag na Caillich, giving a spectacular view of the Tarmachan ridge. But, we headed home via the less dramatic but equally undulating Creag na Caillich west and the two Meall Dhuin Croisg tops. A westwards descent got us back to the drovers track and the eventual mid-summer delights of an ice-cold diet coke and choc-ice in Killin.||summitter||30/05/2020|
|Drove up tarmac track to end S of first summit: Meall Dhuin Croisg; Meall Ton Eich; Beinn nan Oighreag; Creag an Talabhein; Cam Creag. Return stalkers path looks good on map but barely exists on ground which resulted in a lot of deep heather and bracken when I lost the line.||dickscroop||20/08/2018|
