Ran all Seven lawyers Munros with JanGrimpeur123413/06/2020
Climbed with Meall Greigh (1001m) accessed from the Ben Lawers Hotel. I tend to avoid hiking on my own in snow, so this was a good confidence builder, the snow has been through for at least two week, but there obviously been a lot of fresh stuff yesterday / last night as it was mainly still soft which the gaiters made easy work of. Dry with great views all day, with some high level cloud, 06:50hrs all in.chillyman810/11/2019
Beautiful day on the hills. Nice little round of 5 starting at meal greigh and finishing with beinn ghlas. Definitely ones to return toNicky C28/09/2019
Meall Greigh, Meall Garbh and An Stuc. Parked at The Ben Lawers Hotel (£5 unless you buy a meal). Fantastic clear views at Meall Greigh but by the time I'd got to Meall Garbh it was cloudy and drizzly. Bit of a scramble up to An Stuc. It was still wet and cloudy by the time I got to Bealach Dubh so decided not to carry on to Ben Lawers. By the time I got down to Lochan nan Cat (down a very steep path) it was all clear up the top. 8 hours in total.tsharp16/09/2019

SMHC sunday walk with Alan & Lyndsay Munro & Emma Watson. Just over 11 miles for the circuit. The summits were mostly in cloud when we got to them but we did have views of every summit at some point during the day. Nice easy walk to the summit plateau of Meall Garbh, but locating the actual summit proved a bit more difficult. If in doubt take a photo at every cairn.LizzieG18/09/2016
