Sgiath Chuil (921m) and Meall Glas (959m), accessed from Auchessan Farm between Killin and Crianlarich. It was overcast for most the day, until around 3pm when the sun poked through, but the initial mist cleared on both summits, which was ace. No paths to speak of so a real bogfeast all day, 8:20hrs all in.chillyman828/04/2019

From Auchlyne in Glen Dochart. The ascent from the Hydro track is grim. Not a hill you would want to visit in a hurry. However, given the previous abortive attempt from Glen Lochay it was good to complete the 'mission.'Roblex05/09/2012

From Kenknock. Rotten weather with rain and high winds. Dropped down too far down col between Meal Glas and Sgiath Chuil and was a bugger reclimbing back up. Hard route. Descent was hellish for a July day. There are bridge crossings if you look.Jhimmy15/07/2012
