With GHC up the track then solo to the top. Light showers but good views. Steep ascent.Play2End13/08/2017
Climbed in hot, sunny but windy conditions with John Mcd. Approach from south of Lochearnhead was complicated, requiring statutory responsible access through Edinchip estate.barnz4817/07/2017
From Lochearnhead (8:10) took tiresome winding route to old railway and track up glen. Followed this to col, then steeply up trackless slope to summit plateau and top of Creag Rainaich. Back to col down even steeper slope. Up grassy slopes from col to top of Meall an t'Seallaidh. Good views. Back down direct to nearest pt of track and thence back to car (15:05). Light showers but mostly dry and some sun; clear but windy on both tops.dbb25/06/2017
Straightforward from previous hill. A little snow still around.davechaffey11/03/2017
A very windy, wet and cloudy day from head of Glen Ogle.Initially up a poor track near fortest edge then compass bearing to main summit. Summit cairn did not match description in book so spent some time hunting around in the cloud before I was sure (and it did match the photo here. Slight error in descent befoer ascet to Meall Sgallachd - went down too far north and too low. After that straightforward following the fence over the 620m top to Meall Reamhar. Took poor line down to near disused railway viaduct which lead to some difficult ground - should have stayed more on the ridge.dickscroop30/12/2016

From Lochearnhead via Glen Kendrum as described in SMC Corbetts book.davidpettit8406/11/2016
Windy and cloudy. Start of walk is from the A84 and look for bike route sign. Long walk in, use a bike. You can park at the church for a donation (but not when a service is on. Steep climb up and a false cairn before the true top.Jhimmy11/10/2016
Climbed with Sue , very wet underfoot.Frank26/09/2016
I rather fancied a circuit of Glen Kendrum so started via Meall Ramhear. Lovely stroll in the sunshine, but degenerates into peat hags and pillowy vegetables after the summit. A right old thrash until Meall Sgallachd, and then it's lovely walk to the summit. No wonder normal people climb this hill via the landrover track. Like an idiot I followed the SMC route off the top instead of the blindingly obvious path, and regretted it when I saw the easy descent to the bealach. That was enough for one day, with the long drive back to Derbyshire ahead of me. Macaroni cheese in the Golden Larches provided strength for the drive.Gill15/08/2016
Walk from Glen Kendrum with Richard Jones, track between the two Corbetts tackling Creag MacRanaich first. Cool cloudy start breaking into warm sunshine.N.Morters08/05/2016
