Meall na Leitreach and The Sow of Atholl from Dalnaspidal Lodge.rhalstead21/06/2019
Beautiful day with GFE and DTL (starting with Perth parkrun). From the parking spots just before the railway line: Sron na h-Eiteich, Meall na Leitreach, Sgairneach Mhor (all three tops). Saw mountain hares and a beautiful amount of wildlife but sadly lots of traps too.Fionalevey04/05/2019

50th With Allan. From Dalnaspidal, follow track to base of hill then pick way up first South then South West to summit. Clear, warm and dry day. Easy 3hr walk.RGibbs26/05/2017
With a great effort of will, I put my faith in the Met office, and set off up Meall na Leitreach, despite continuing rain, after bagging the Sow in sleet, rain and a gale. I spent most of the climb damply muttering under my breath about the accuracy of the Met Office book of lies. I was made to eat my words when the clouds parted and the sun came out exactly as predicted, just as I reached the summit cairn. Glorious 360 degree views and a lovely walk down. You could almost imagine that the A9 and the super pylons had been magicked away. Well done, Met office.Gill31/03/2017

Hitched from Dalwhinnie so made it a short day due to possible problems of getting a lift back. From Dalnaspidal to bridge then ignored track and headed straight up hillside which proved much quicker that those who took the very circuitous track. From summit then headed east over boggy ground to Meall breac made more difficult by the few inches of snow that had fallen. Returned by similar route but contouring north of Meall na Leitreach summit. Final descent made much easier by a good snow run. There was a good track just after the col west of Meall Breac heading NE which may proviode a viable return on easy goingdickscroop28/03/2016

Round of the Sow, Sgairneach Mhor (first munro/murdo), Meallan Buidhe, Meall na Leitreach. Struggled a bit on this last hill with my legs feeling it (rough heathery ascent from western end of loch) but still enjoyed the views up top.Columba13/07/2013

solo - bit of a squelch with sowjohnm20/11/2011
With Smithy & Shaky from Dalnaspidal. Intended to do the Sow Of Atholl first & then Leitreach, but just as we were setting off, the local ghillies drew up in their Land Rover. They politely asked if we would mind climbing Leitreach first while they were 'busy' on the Sow, so off we went. Followed the track across the railway & then just over the first bridge over a gate into a field of sheep. Following a bank led to a small dam which was crossed to reach another track. Took a slanting line up the hillside roughly following the line of Allt nam Plaidean. Soggy underfoot with occasional signs of ATV tracks to follow. Mist was down on the summit & after returning by the same route we decided to leave the Sow for another day.NotReallyABagger14/10/2011
