Bagging the 2 Donald Tops from Church carpark clockwise. Mostly surprisingly easy ground despite all the peathags, just a couple awkward bits.AndrewFinnimore06/10/2018

Followed SMC Grahams and Donald circuit: Am Beannan - Meall Clachach - Uamh Bheag W and E tops - Beinn Odhar - Beinn nan Eun. Rime on the ground helped with the peatier sections. Otherwise Spring-like, with a skein of geese flying North, bright sun and a cloud inversion.Nick Down121/01/2017

Solo; P at Glen Artney church, walked SW along road and through gate before bridge; continued on rough terrain beside the Water of Ruchill and across an old partial bridge over Allt Ollach, past a croft ruin and steeply up Am Beannan then on broad ridge to Meall Clachach and onward to Uamh Bheag, heading later to Beinn Odhar.
