A day of changeable weather, nice morning with great views of autumn colours in Glen Lochay, then low cloud moved in, rain at times, completed the circuit over Meall Glas with long walk out, almost dry and within sight of the car, in time for another soaking.Cumbrianexile24/10/2022
Started at Auchessan on the A85 and then along the Allt Riobain and all its lovely waterfalls up to the dam. Then Sgiath Chrom, Sgiath Chuil. Out of the clouds down the steep slopes to Lairig a Churain and then up to Beinn Cheathaich and into the clouds again, along the gentle ridge to Meall Glas and back down to the start. No view on the tops at all today. Started raining on the descent but otherwise weather was fine.tsharp11/09/2022
Solo anti-clockwise round of Sgiath Chuil & Meall Glas from Glen Dochart. Parked down by Auchessan in thick fog - car was showing -1.5c a quick walking pace soon warmed me up. Wasn't long before I was above the fog with nothing but blue skies and a rising sun - was down to base-layer on top by the time I reached the first summit (Sgiath Chuil) 2.5hrs after setting off. ~350m re-ascent up Meall Glas felt more tiring than expected - had to skirt some slushy snow patches but no difficulties. Descent route off Meall Glas through boggy terrain was not pleasant, but as soon as the path appeared, it was a nice warm walk back down.. total time from car back to car - 5h 55minmproudfoot27/03/2022

With Rob. Weather good In conjunciton with Sgiath Chuill and Meal Glas. Started at Auchessan walked thru farm to track to featureless grassy slopes to rocky col and up to Meall Glas (960m) Traversed Beinn Cheathaich down to bealach at head of two burns running away north and south before climbing track to Meall a Churain and Sgriath Chuil. We descended over Sgiath Chrom. There was a discussion on whether the trip would have been shorter from Kenknock which was never resolved but reviewed when we rode up the glen later in year as part of An Turas Mor trip.david.walker4029/06/2021
