A morning round of the three tops SE of Rob Roy Way in Glen Lochan before heading home. Overcast but cloud lifted from summit ahead of me as I headed up track to a short way before the bealach when I saw a relatively heather free line. Beinn na gainimh (G);Creag Grianain(Gt) and Meall Mor(Gt). managed to puck out a grassy rake between the badly eroding slopes of second top. Other than this the day was enlivened by crossing a live electric fence three times - once before each top.dickscroop28/08/2019
From the north, circular route including crossing of electric fence. Don't think it was turned on but I avoided touching it anyway. Lots of lapwings and curlews.Grinner07/04/2019
Parked at Newton Bridge (11:45). Bike up glen to track junction at 851318 (12:10). Walked up track to castle (12:45) and on to Beinn na Gainimh. Overcast and hazy. Crawled under electric fence to 725 point; steeply down W to track & glen. Up river, crossed bridge, then up track to summit of Auchnafree Hill, just in cloud. Some drizzle on descent E then NE past Eagle's Rock to bridge and back to bike (18:10) and car (18:25).dbb23/07/2018
A lovely stroll along Glen Almond, then up the hill on a land rover track towards Conichan Castle, in excellent condition despite its steepness. From the highest point of the track, up through the rocks and small crags was gruesome, in shaggy heather, but there’s a good path along the top of the hill, with various cairns, and then, on the plateau, a series of marker posts through the hags and bogs, helpful in the rain and mist. Found an electric fence on Sron Bealaidh, which seems unlikely to be functional given that it’s earthed in numerous places, which made a neat navigational handrail over the first top, down, and then up towards the summit. Thick mist had me sticking to the fence to its highest point, and then a sort of half arsed box search (not needing a compass) to find the cairn and my 1000th Marilyn. Navigation down was dead easy; back along the fence to Sron Bealaidh and then one bearing does the job nicely.Gill03/05/2018
From Newton Bridge plenty of parking. Took track beside river. Nice friendly locals. One checked if we knew a f’in howler was forecast for the afternoon. We did & made haste 4 hours 24 in snow following track as far as we could up hill.rogreeves02/04/2018

Short break in Crief. Climbed up from the Lochan on Rob Roy Way and it is a steep old hill. Back the same way.nickywood116/07/2017

Parked opposite the entrance to Glenquaich Lodge on the verge. Sign says no parking but legally room for one car. Followed track past recent pipeline workings up past frozen Lochan Mhuilinn then to flats around Lochan Uiane. Steeply up the ridge to col beteween Graham and top Grianain. Steep hard old snow provided a staircase to flat heathery sunnit.nordicstar15/02/2015

Solo. Wanted to ascend from Loch Freuchie side of these hills but found no where to park as well as wind farm activity. Started from the car park at Newton Bridge instead. Walked west and then north on track before ascending hillside to Sròn Bealaidh and Beinn na Gainimh. Summit of latter on my side of double electrified fence. Continued to Creag Grianain where I found I did have to cross the fence; it was not powered up. This fence goes for a considerable distance and I crossed it a few times thereafter. Came to summit of Meall Mòr. The name Meall Mòr appears on OS maps someway to the NE of the summit, suggesting that the name is not really intended to apply to the summit. Went over the summit of Geal Charn and then Meall Reamhar. Maps showed crags to S so descended SW.pwbellarby11/04/2014

The sun actually shone for a while, however normality returned with rain later. From Croftmill. Love the way the electric fence adds to the visual experience.Martin R26/10/2011
From Croftmill to the NE along Rob Roy Way. Then steep ascent to the R of the cliffs aiming for a square cairn on skyline on Creag Grianain (not at the summit). Good viewpoint over cliffs and lake. Continued to Beinn na Gainimh.Aye Jimmy02/05/2011
