Followed a track from Dalnaspidal Lodge, which went pretty much all the way to Sgairneach Mhor East Top, the last section running parallel to a row of shooting butts. Crossed a beallach to its South East then a short pull up to the Sow. A muddy track goes half way up The Sow's SE flank, so got on to this (little more than muddy ruts) until it rejoined the main stone track. Nice wee jaunt - 2.5hrs total.summitter16/11/2019
Beautiful day with GFE and DTL (starting with Perth parkrun). From the parking spots just before the railway line: Sron na h-Eiteich, Meall na Leitreach, Sgairneach Mhor (all three tops). Saw mountain hares and a beautiful amount of wildlife but sadly lots of traps too.Fionalevey04/05/2019
