|Up the stalkers path, needs more traffic, then slithered down the hill to continue to BDAI, in a gale and somewhat damp.||Gill||28/10/2017|
|5 of 6: From Meallan Odhar.||ChrisR||08/04/2017|
|From power station with Jenx on a right dreich day, unlike other logs! Worst Marilyn so far of 2016; low cloud, headwind and wetting drizzle. Ground everywhere waterlogged. Followed track, then path before finding the old stalkers path up to 500m which was the only bright spot! Rebuilt cairn on boulder, which in my opinion isn't the top (It'll roll away one day), that is 10m to NW. Carried on through the murk to lower tops, col and the second Marilyn.||nordicstar||21/03/2016|

Then cont E via the col to Meall Odhar.Doire nan Gillean, traversing both tops. Then back down to path, road & car (18:00).
