TGOC 2018. Ascended all 3 west Glen Roy hills en route to Luib Chonnal bothyalexmaclennan14/05/2018
An easy path leads from the Glen Roy viewpoint to the summit plateau of Beinn a' Mhonicag. Superb views. Leana Mhor is so close that it's impossible to do anything other than continue on down the NW ridge. This requires a bit of weaving around to dodge steep ground and a turn north near the bottom to hit the bealach. The climb to Leana Mhor is as easy as it looks, on smooth grass, and then lovely short heather towards the top. On return (easy) cut across the lower slopes of Beinn a' Mhonicag to avoid road bashing and take a peek at a parallel road.Gill12/05/2018
Parked at Achavady near spot height 207 up Glen Roy, 2km past the parallel roads view point. Followed the hill track west to spot height 345 then headed due north uphill to take in the Marilyn Leana Mhor at 684m. This was to make more of a walk of the day. On top the wind was cold and strong with large patches of frozen snow. Carried on to take in the trig on Coire Ceirsle Hill, to the SW.BigJ18/03/2018

Solo. From end of public road in Glen Gloy. Road up Glen Gloy is very narrow with passing places, some a long way apart. Walked up track up Glen Fintaig to the end of the track. Here crossed burn and climbed up hillside SE. Came to new fence, not shown on OS 1:25,000 map, coming from col between Meall Breac and Lèana Mhòr. Climbed over fence to continue to summit of Lèana Mhòr. Now very misty. Headed SW and came across fence again. Thought fence might follow border of forestry land marked on map, but it did not and went across the NW slopes of Coire Ceirsle Hill. Reached the trig point at summit of Coire Ceirsle Hill and the nearby highest point. Now out of mist with excellent views. Went N to bridge over burn in Glen Gloy - can squeeze through a high fence there.pwbellarby18/07/2013

From Glen Roy with Shaky on a sunny day.

Back to the final col before dropping E following the Allt a'Bhreac Achaidh to the bridge & then walking back down the glen. Good walk in a peaceful glen.NotReallyABagger01/06/2007
