Smallest summit areas

Since then, I've always wondered how many other Scottish mountains have similarly small summit-areas. Doesn't have to be a Munro. Can anyone name some?

Not in the same league, but others are:
Binnein Mor (Mamores)
Stob a Choin (Loch Voil)
Sgurr Ruadh (Achnashellach)
Sgurr a Bhealaich Dheirg (Glen Shiel)
Beinn na h-Eaglaise (Arnisdale)
Sgurr an Fhidhleir (Coigach)
Loads more I can't think of right now.

Stob Diamh, further along the ridge, and its subsidiary tops aren't particularly large...similar in size if not smaller than Stuch'd an Lochain if I recall correctly

A few names in there that I recognize straight away. Obviously, plenty to come in the future then
To answer my original question, the top that follows from the Munro summit of Meall nan Tarmachan was pretty small, if I remember right.

I wouldn't plan on making a speech atop Sgurr nan Gillean then....you may find your mouth is full.
