|A long trudge along the ridge from Craig of Monievreckie. A deer track follows the fence line for some of it but there's lots of high heather and bracken to negotiate. Nice easy return route to Braeval CP on the footpath in the glen to the S.||sclater||29/07/2020|
|From just before East Lodge, at the end of the public road on the S shore of Loch Venachar. A very pleasant circuit along the Rob Roy Way, continuing along the track at the lochan, SW along the ridge to the heathery summit, then cutting SW down a steep grassy gully immediately beyond to meet the Rob Roy Way again in a few hundred yards||Nick Down1||13/04/2020|
|From the Braeval carpark, up through the forest tracks, then via a wee path running alongside the burn up to the two tops of Craig of Monievreckie, then along the Monteith Hills ridge to Creag a' Bhacain. Then down to the Rob Roy Way and back to the car. A pleasant 3hr round on a cloudy afternoon.||summitter||16/02/2019|

|From car park on the A81 following green markers and to Dugswell helpful mention of faint path of left 50 metres before sharp left hand bend in track as it crosses the steam. Up this little path through trees and up on to the SW ridge. ThenSW-NE walk along all 4 Summits inc the Marilyn.
