Event Description

Saturday 10 th February Map 51, NN453276 Glen Dochart Meall Glas (959m, Munro) — grey-green hill Sgiath Chuil (920m, Munro) — back wing, so sheltering spot Park on the S side of the road at a forestry road entrance about 500m E of Auchessan. Take the private road across the River Dochart to Auchessan and follow the track on the E side of the burn. For Meall Glas, head slightly W of N, while for Sgiath Chuil, go east of north to cross the Allt Riobain. Meall Glas can be reached by heading for the col just to the east of the summit. Sgiath Chuil is approached on its broad SW ridge. To do both, leave Meall Glas on the eastern ridge, passing a prominent cairn at point 908m, then go NE to Beinn Cheathaich. The direct descent ESE from this top is very steep for a short distance, but if you turn north then ESE, this minor difficulty can be avoided. Steep grassy slopes take you to Meall a’ Churain, from where you turn south along the almost level ridge to the summit of Sgiath Chuil. Go SW to regain the upward route back to the start. (16km, 1300m ascent)
