Ascended after Meall nan Gabhar in good weather. Headed for Beinn Bhalgairean.JohnW22/06/2007
On verge near Glen Falloch Farm. On road to cross padlocked gate partially tarmacked rough access road steeply uphill. Over railway to junction and turned right. Under power lines twice and up to a flat 2m section passing 25 access ducts over every side stream trapping water into a pipe so that the glen was silent. Steep drop to cross the glen by the pipe and a further 1 1/2m on track ending at foot of wide tussock covered valley. One stream to cross and steep clamber on grass to top. No cairn. to Gabhararranc11/04/2007
