From parking area at top of Cairnwell Pass (NO 14187 77422) - Meall Odhar - Creag Leacach - Glas Maol, over Meall Odhar again and back to the starting point. Navigation not too difficult, a mixture of good tracks and grassy paths throughout. Wet and very windy on the summits.david23020130/06/2019

Carn an Tuirc (1019m), Cairn of Claise (1064m), Glas Maol (1068m) and Creag Leacach (987m), started just before dawn and was back at my car before sunset, 7.25 hours all in. Two tricky bits, on the ascent to Carn an Tuirc and the return leg on the west slope of Glas Maol where I had to use by cheap, but practical crampons. Also I saw several Ptarmigans and Mountain Hares.chillyman830/12/2018

A four mile county top walk from Glen Shee ski centre taking two hours in low visibility and rain, not a nice place to be in those conditions. I only went up as it was a short walk having turned down Ben Macdui because of the same conditions.WAYNE ROWLETT28/07/2018

Parked in the ski car park opposite The Cairnwell and made my way through the ski runs to the Munro Top of Meall Odhar. Then it was onto Glas Maol before dropping Southeast to the Munro Top of Little Glas Maol. The view into Caenlochan Glen was superb and was enjoyed as I skirted back round it to reach Druim Mor on the opposite side of it. Finally it was a quick ascent to Cairn of Claise and then back over Glas Maol and Meall Odhar to return to the car. A first for me was seeing a young hare being pursued by a stoat on the summit of Cairn of Claise, fortunately for the hare the stoat must have seen me and retreated.Peterb06/08/2017
