Loop of the Tarmachan ridge on a beautiful evening.Nicky C24/06/2020
Hot day, great walk. Drove up the Glen Lochay hydro road as far as possible then followed the old drovers road across meadow, railroad sleepers and steel girders to the ghost village of Shielings, then an easy steady ascent along the southern ridge of Beinn nan Oighreag. Took a direct easterly descent to, the probably boggy most of the year, Lairig Bhreislich, which was straightforward in super dry conditions, to enable an assault on the northern ridge of Meall Ton Eich. From there it was onwards to Creag na Caillich, giving a spectacular view of the Tarmachan ridge. But, we headed home via the less dramatic but equally undulating Creag na Caillich west and the two Meall Dhuin Croisg tops. A westwards descent got us back to the drovers track and the eventual mid-summer delights of an ice-cold diet coke and choc-ice in Killin.summitter30/05/2020
A cracking walk today. Very clear views. Meall nan Tarmachan plus 4 other tops (SE top, Meall Garbh, Beinn nan Eachan and Cread na Caillich). Discovered after Meall Garbh that the rocky scramble off there was avoidable by going down the Grassy slope never mind. Just over 5 hours.tsharp17/09/2019

As part of Tarmachan Ridge walk. Has multiple tops but the first is highest. The continuing path traverses dodgily above a scary drop at one point - not recommended on a windy day; thankfully it was lovely weather.milngavie_kenny20/05/2012

With a friend. We drove to Glen Lochay and drove a short way up a track northwards just beyond the power station. We started from there, reaching Meall Dhùim Croisg. We continued to Creag na Caillich and Beinn nan Eachan. My friend left to do Meall Tòn Eich. I continued along the ridge to Meall nan Tarmachan. Descended over the SE top (a newish Munro top) to reach my car which had been positioned at the Ben Lawers Visitor Centre. Weather good.pwbellarby29/06/2003
