Logged Descriptions  (logged by 225 users)ByDate of Ascent
This hill was really enjoyable as we did the walk via the lead mines and Sron nan Colan(qv). The slopes up by the Perths./Argylls. boundary after Drochaid an Droma had all the dips filled with hard snow. We descended the slope to Cononish for descent. As we started down a ESE ridge, we were able to contour above the forest and find what the SMC describe as an obvious break in the forest. It was obvious- a relief. In ascent, this would have been tedious. Fabulous sunny afternoon with alpine-like snowy conditions on the Munros above us. With brother, Pete.pwheeler22/03/2020
Cycled from Dalrigh to 0.5km before Cononish then through gate into grazing field towards firebreak in forest, then 30 minutes uphill to summit.willyross23/05/2019
With Dave Roeder. From startion car park (12:40) took path steeply up through mine workings to ridge and along it to top of Meall Odhar (13:40). Descent following fence line through woodland to col, then up a long steep slope to Beinn Chuirn (15:30). Down SW then SSE to track and thence back to station (17:50). Weather dry, good views of Ben Lui etc.dbb05/05/2019
After Drochaid an Droma. Up along line of prominent ridge, with occasional footpath, then short grass to summit. Sunny periods, windier. Beinn Laoigh now almost clear. View extensive but hazy, including Beinn Dòrain, Mamlorn Forest, and Crianlarich hills, with hints of Ben Cruachan and Black Mount. Back past Drochaid an Droma, then along north face of Sròn nan Colan on gradually descending sunken path (perhaps a one-time leat conveying water for use in lead extraction?) to reach glen level near foot of miners’ track. To Tyndrum Lower railway station to await train for Oban.mainnirnamfiadh25/07/2018
Solo, anti-clockwise circuit from Tyndrum lower.amswanston22/07/2018
Straightforward climb from the NE on a very hot day on super dry ground.summitter29/06/2018
Took a similar route to Robert, but without the two Beinn Churn tops. The cairn on Sron currently spots a small Saltire. Drochaid an Droma's high point is either the northern or southern rocky top; the flat rock in between is lower. The descent from Meall Odhar to the Cononish track is seriously hard going over unremitting tussocks.Nick Down124/06/2018

From Tyndrum, followed zigzags up and a curving left to the top. Weather stared poor but eventually got better.Slightly harder then expected. This was a safety mountain due to bad weather, but the afternoon became sunny so wasted a full day.Jhimmy05/06/2017
From Tyndrum via the 2 Dodds following watershed.jimbloomer02/05/2017
Solo. From Tyndrum. After ascending Sron nan Colan and Drochaid an Droma went on up easy slopes to Meall Odhar. Rock outcrop close to cairn looks to be highest point, but who knows what is under the cairn. Descent SE was rather rough. Through obvious gap in trees. There is a high deer fence not far above the track to Cononish but there is a gate at NN306286 - does open. Back on tracks to Tyndrum.pwbellarby16/09/2016
from Tyndrum back via Summits and gold mine back to Tyndrumcjo14/05/2016
Alone to summit. Another superb day. Hazel walked into foot of Ben Lui. Together to 2nd of forest free areas before Connonish where I headed NW to fire break, enjoying easy ascent to summit. Ben Lui and adjacent corbett looking awesome. Continued round ridge on snow to descend via path above lead mines.SpudGunn10/03/2016

Solo followed track to old lead mines and turned left up the scree at the Keep Out sign. Stayed more to the right of the scree as there was less of it. There is an old fence line up the left side but this looked steeper and on scree. It is a very steep pull up but reached the Sron top. From there the route was very obvious to Meall Odhar. The trees are on the left and the route round them is clearly visible. I followed a definite line of white boulders although the summit is more right of this Descended to the right side of the trees and a firebreak came into view as I got a bit lower down. This was very rough walking with long grass and hidden holes and boggy. The sting in the tale is there is a deer fence before you reach the Cononish track. I just climbed this. You could follow it left and come out at the South Glen Lochy track which leads back to Tyndrum. Not the scorcher we were promised. Overcast but dry and a bit of wind and sunny spellsmunromurph15/08/2014

From Tyndrum after Sron nan Colan. Opted to do this as the weather was to foul to contemplate Ben Lui, but even here it was hideous wind and rain. I then dropped down to the Cononish track for an easier return.Jake99414/07/2008
