Great winter day from Glen Lochay with M and DRodge01/12/2019
Me and Issy walked this out and back route. quite an easy walk but a bit boggy.Kevthecat08/11/2019
Limited roadside parking just west of the river by Duncroisk. Simple walk up grassy slopes to the summit shelter cairn. Icy and windy on top. Walked east down the ridge to Cam Chreag and Creag an Tulabhainn, then up to Beinn nan Oighreag. Solo.Dangerous Dave20/10/2019
Set off 7AM from Glen Lochay to try and avoid the worst of the weather. Still pretty wet and windy though. Back down by 11.tsharp14/09/2019
Debs & Tali, from parking at NN507370. Followed quad track up into Coire Ghaordaidh then NW up easy ground onto the ridge with 500m north to the Meall na Cnap Laraich. Then direct to Meall Ghaordaidh to Cam-Chreag. Followed faint track to the nose path then down the fell side to the Sheilings meeting the quad track. 3hrs 20Mountain Goat18/06/2019
Standard route up and down in 3 hours 15 mins from Glen Lochay on another Webteam walk for charity. Drizzly with views coming and going, summit in the clouds so had lunch in the shelter then headed back down. An enjoyable walk and easy Munro.Chris Mac26/05/2019
Round from Glen Lyon - climbing the Corbett first gave good perspective of Meall Ghaordaidh, which is characterful from this side. A good day in fine weather.nix_snilloc22/04/2019

Meall Ghaordaidh (1039m) west of Killin, accessed from Glen Lochay. This was first hike through snow, >6 inches on the top 200m, which was certainly an experience. Sadly no views on top, due to the mist, but a nice sight of Ben More to the west on the descent. Five hours 20 minutes all in.chillyman823/12/2018
Straightforward up and down from DuncroiskGeoff Briggs19/12/2018
Parking on grass verge west of bridge over Allt Dhuin Croisg (NN 52683 36272). Relentless plod all the way to the summit! Path mostly clear throughout, occasionally boggy, rockier near the summit. Out and back by the same route.david23020128/10/2018

Apparently an easy wee hill. Not in blizzard conditions with ice from about half way up. Double ice axe job and lost all power in the legs. Hanging on to the hill due to high winds and shifting snow. Nut as it was a sunny and warm day below the cloud.Eileen O'Neil11/04/2015

Munro No7. Straight forward up and down 5 mile walk from car parked near bridge over Allt Dhuin Croisg. Made interesting by cloud cover above 650m and heavy rain from 900m. Breezy on top. Cloud made it difficult to follow sketchy path to summit, but basically heade uphill on a NNW bearing.SteveSmith12/09/2013
Straight forward up and down from Duncroisk.rhalstead11/09/2013
Solo ascent, from Duncroisk waymarked track, with Holy and Jenny of Meall Ghaordaigh onto Cam Creag and then across the bealach onto Beinn nan Oigreag. Initially sunny then overcast but dry, light wind and a dry moor. 5 hours.alexmaclennan16/06/2013

Really enjoyed this peak, told it was boring not so. Company: Martin Stewart.iandesbottes25/06/2010
Stumbled across the sign then parked up just after. Not a great day, drizzle and mist, lots of it higher up. Managed to lose the 'path' and ended up on the E face with lil visibility and trudging thru snow. At top in 2h15, back at car within 5hrs. Solo.bowzi25/04/2010
