Meall cala and creagan nan sgiath from cp above brig o turk cycled as far as NN 492118robertphillips28/03/2017
Parked at the Woodland Trust car park and ascended from the south east. Descended to north-west over rough boggy ground to pick up track in the upper glen. Limited visibility all day.benalder28418/12/2016
From Brig o'Turk (the higher car park at NN530073 would have been better). Followed the good road to NN486125 then NW to the ridge just S of Cnoc Odhar. Along to the summit, ESE to Meall Cala then SE to the gate by Cladh nan Casan and return. 14.7 miles, 3500' of ascent, 7 hrs 45 mins. A faster route would have been to bike to the col for out and backs.Jim.Fothergill20/09/2016
Not a bad day for weather after an unpromising start with overnight snow in Callander. Tops in cloud though. From Brig o'Turk and then SE ridge in soft snow and cloud. Numerous false tops, at least one of which might have convinced me I was at true top but as I was continuing on to Creagan nan Sgiath from the summit I persevered and got there in the end.dickscroop18/02/2016
