4 of 9 from Kilfinnan.robertphillips01/06/2024
Parked in car park at Kilfinnan, then forestry track and hill path to bealach. A few exposed snow steps to climb onto Meall na Teanga's top ridge. Then up the zig zags to Sron a Choire Ghairbh. Returned via the fine walkable E ridge after Sron a Choire Ghairbh E Top and onto Sean Mheall and Meall nan Dearcag, coming out by a gate near the telecoms mast at Kilfinnan. Some sun and hazy views. First part of the walk busy with weekend Munroists. With Gillianrichard6920/04/2024
Parking at Kilfinnan currently straight forward with new car park for contractors on the dam project. Biked to turn for path up to Munros the followed summit ridge round. Dam construction works visible when the cloud cleared!BaggerGutt23/07/2023

Parked at Kilfinnan and went over Meall na Teanga before returning to Cam Bealach and up on good path to summit with cairn and flattish top. Raining and low cloud. Descended along East ridge over Sean Mheall- better terrain than expected but no views today.Denise 16/06/2022

Solo round of Sròn a' Choire Ghaibh and Meall na Teanga from Kilfinnan. After a rather tense drive up the A82 - covered in a fresh layer of untouched snow - in particular from Crianlarich into to Rannoch Moor, I arrived at Kilfinnan for an early dawn start. Hoofing the 2.2mi walk along the road into the forest, things were going well until about 400m up on the path to the bealach. A low snowline saw a fairly fresh thin layer of powdery snow covering a lot of ice on the path - just enough to require a bit of care, but not really enough to justify crampons. Mostly misty up to around 500m, where the sky opened up. There was a bit of gusty wind but that only started being a nuisance above 700m on each peak, where the gusts would fire a blast of snow every 5-10 mins. Did Sròn a' Choire Ghaibh first, lower zig-zags were icy, but above that it was easy going though my timing was not great, just as i hit the summit, a bank of cloud covered it. Tapped the summit and returned down to themproudfoot28/11/2021

Solo Very deep snow above 300m. Very poor visibility at the top Failed to reach summit of Teanga, 130m short, due to avalanche riskHuwel27/02/2020
Climbed with Alex McBride, Sron a'Choire Ghairbh first then Meall na Teanga. Accessed from Kilfinnan, just over 8hrs all in. Lots of snow above 650m.chillyman814/11/2019
Started at Kilfinnan. 2 miles along the forest track and then up to the bealach along the path. Up to Sron a Choire Ghairbh along the zig zaggy stalkers path to Meall na Teanga where the views were 360 degrees and absolutely awesome. Back down to the bealach and up to Meall na Teanga which seemed a harder climb, again the views were good, including Loch Linhe and Loch Ness. Back down the same way. Saw one other person (twice) he was going down from each top as I was going up.tsharp06/05/2019
From Kilfinnan: The woods sheltered me from the heavy rain but once out in the open up to the col I was soaked. Up and down Teanga, then up and down Sron a Choire Ghairbh.jigglybones20/02/2019

Climbed first, then climbed Meall na Teanga after it. This hill probably the harder of the two hills, not much in them though. Good day out.FCMark11/06/2015
After Meall na Teanga. Followed the easy going trail to a panoramic 360 degree view of mist. Finally ticked after a failed attempt from Eas Chia-aig waterfall due to the depth of snow. Kilfinnan is the better approach.mindlessflogger26/05/2015
