round of meall mor, creag grianain, geal charn, meall reamhar, from tracks near lynemore, parked 200 m west of track entrance at large shed entrance.robertphillips29/12/2016
After Meall Mor, followed twin electric fences (turned off) over intervening dip. Summit is a lovely mossy perch overlooking Lochan a'Mhuilinn.Lindsay M06/07/2016
After Gainimh dropped down to col and fence line to top, onwards to Meall Mhor. Electric fences interesting but possible to step on longer spans to cross easily.nordicstar15/02/2015
Solo. Wanted to ascend from Loch Freuchie side of these hills but found no where to park as well as wind farm activity. Started from the car park at Newton Bridge instead. Walked west and then north on track before ascending hillside to Sròn Bealaidh and Beinn na Gainimh. Summit of latter on my side of double electrified fence. Continued to Creag Grianain where I found I did have to cross the fence; it was not powered up. This fence goes for a considerable distance and I crossed it a few times thereafter. Came to summit of Meall Mòr. The name Meall Mòr appears on OS maps someway to the NE of the summit, suggesting that the name is not really intended to apply to the summit. Went over the summit of Geal Charn and then Meall Reamhar. Maps showed crags to S so descended SW.pwbellarby11/04/2014
Parked just before the houses on the longish straight. Partly sunny, high cloud, few showers, cool wind, good views.iangalbraith04/08/2013

Great view of loch - not a 'lake'. Great place to sit on edge and eat lunch, however not a place to have a post-prandial sleep. Marked absence of any marker at the very summit.Martin R26/10/2011
Nice top.ARM14/08/2011
