A very pleasant short round from the A822 track entrance to Girron Farm. Along the track to the col, up flowery slopes to Meall nan Caorach, a marshy detour to Findowie West Top, back to the ridge at Creag Ghorm, along to Creag Bhiorach and down to the track at the gate 1 km S of the farm.Nick Down107/07/2019
A much better walk than it looks from the roadside. No problem parking at the end of the track to Girron. Up the track to just before the final steepening before the bealach and cut across to climb the N side of Meall Reamhar on easy grassy sheep tracks. Down along the fence and up to Meall nan Caorach. Easily down the NW spur to the track. Great to be back in Perthshire on these nice grassy hills with so many wild flowers hidden in the grass.Gill03/07/2019
Starting along the farm track then cut diagonally up to top of Meall Reamhar, across to climb steeply to its twin, Meall nan Caereach, along the ridge to Creag Gorm and back to the track.dickscroop03/01/2019
Meall nan Caorach (NN 929339) S/F NN 903356 Hot dry summer day with little cloud. Another little hill chosen for that reason. Felt very tired after what should have been an easy ascent.John Young22/06/2018
Easy round including the neighbouring Graham from Amulree. A cold and overcast Mayday.Roblex01/05/2018

With Dave Roeder. Parked on A822 by entrance to Girron (10:00). Crossed stream before farm (I fell in!), followed track to wall which blocks it and then ridge to top before crossing bealach to Meall nan Caorach. A formidable double electric fence is under construction which will apparently extend over both summits. From Meall nan C followed ridge for abt 1k before descending to track in valley. Finish 13:50. Chilly and windy with some sun.dbb24/04/2018

Solo. Using track that goes past Girron. Much work hereabouts in connection with Beauly - Denny power line. From col between Meall Reamhar and Meall nan Caorach to summit of Meall Reamhar keeping close to fence. Back down to col and on to Meall nan Caorach and Creag Ghorm. There is no feature at highest point of Creag Ghorm with a cairn 100m further N which is lower.pwbellarby24/05/2015
From Meall Reamhar a short climb to the summit. Including Reamhar the whole walk took 2 hours 40 minutes. With GB.bolton22/05/2015
Parked in wide gateway off A822 at NN90355 35588 Along farm road to Girron & then picked up excellent track & headed SE up to col Meall Reamhar & back down to col Meall nan Caorach & then NNW towards Creag Ghorm before dropping back down to track. (PM)gerrybowes22/05/2015
With M. Did these two Grahams on way from Edinburgh to stay near Pitlochry.douglas_easton24/04/2015
The entrance to the track was widened last year by pylon workers, and so there is plenty of car parking space there. There is still lots of wire lying around on the hills.Pete R07/02/2015

Parked at Amulree village hall. No road parking at track due to placed boulders/fence at roadsides. After ridge to Meall Reamhar dropped to col and ascended easy to MnC. Off to bag Findowie hill before return for the GTG and sub5. Drop straight to farm building and out.nordicstar07/12/2013
