From parking area at top of Cairnwell Pass (NO 14187 77422) - Meall Odhar - Creag Leacach - Glas Maol, over Meall Odhar again and back to the starting point. Navigation not too difficult, a mixture of good tracks and grassy paths throughout. Wet and very windy on the summits.david23020130/06/2019

Carn an Tuirc (1019m), Cairn of Claise (1064m), Glas Maol (1068m) and Creag Leacach (987m), started just before dawn and was back at my car before sunset, 7.25 hours all in. Two tricky bits, on the ascent to Carn an Tuirc and the return leg on the west slope of Glas Maol where I had to use by cheap, but practical crampons. Also I saw several Ptarmigans and Mountain Hares.chillyman830/12/2018

A four mile county top walk from Glen Shee ski centre taking two hours in low visibility and rain, not a nice place to be in those conditions. I only went up as it was a short walk having turned down Ben Macdui because of the same conditions.WAYNE ROWLETT28/07/2018
