Navigated in low cloud from Meall Odhar. Steep descent to the Rob Roy Way then walked back to Killin for drinks at The Falls of Dochart Inn. Nice chat to William Hill, who caught the biggest salmon in Loch Tay!Dangerous Dave22/10/2019
Pleasant walk up through forest. Open track from the aerial up to the dam. Above the dam cut up the hill. Good views of the Loch Tay with Kenmore at one end and Killin at the other.elizyanne15/10/2019
Parked about 2 km or so shy of the reservoir (just next to a large, but unlocked, gate) then a clockwise circuit of Creag Gharbh, Meall Odhar & Ceann Creagach. Water level low, fly count high.summitter03/08/2019
Solo jog, from near Auchmore.amswanston19/05/2019
Up from Auchmore, was able to drive 2km though could have gone further through unlocked gates. Easy stroll from near mast.willyross27/03/2019
Large area at start of track suitable for parking (585323) is now fenced off. Limited parking still possible - also further East at (590328)49pp18/03/2019
From minor road near Killin, via Rob Roy Way.Grinner24/11/2018
Drove up track for 2km towards reservoir (tarmac) to camp. A Graham and 5 Graham tops: Creag garbh; Meall Odhar; Ruadh MNeall; Meall daimh; Cul na Creag Am bacon (not named on map) plus the 609m top on way back.dickscroop19/08/2018
We had 2 cars so decided to walk from Ardreonaig to Achmore Burn (1 mile E of Killin) via the Rob Roy Way, diverting off to go up Meall Odhar and Creag Gharbh. Between the two tops, a matter of walking over the easiest ground- joining the E ridge below steep rough ground, N of the tiny lochan shown on the map. We descended S across heather and grass/runnels, the latter ground OK as it was so dry. A satisfying walk, as point-to points are, great views over the Tay valley.pwheeler29/05/2018
Here for the trigpoint. TP:UK log: We can see this trig from our lodge at Morenish, so decided it would be great to bag it. Longish walk (probably about 8km round trip) but only the last 500m was heather bashing, wee Hamish had lots of carries but didn't want to stay in the carrier! We were rewarded with great views from the top.thejackrustles22/05/2018

Road to mast and dam. Steep pull up over heather, swamp and tussock past shielings to top at 11.10.arranc20/04/2000
After staying at Killin YH. With friend. Took advantage of two cars to leave one near Achmore. Continued in other to Braentrian and walked from there. Walked up a track and path past some shielings to meet a pipeline. We followed a track initially SW. Near Creag Gharbh we went north to the summit and back to the track a slightly different way. Continued on the track W past the dammed Lochan Breaclaich and so reached the road on the south side of Loch Tay. It did not rain!pwbellarby19/09/1999
