Climbed alone from car park just of A93 at foot of ski track leading to Meall Odhar. A rough path leads from there to the rounded top of Glas Maol with trig station and large cairn. Met a couple of sisters with their Jack Russell terrier who kindly took my photo. Descended to cairn at bealach along broad ridge and eventually climbed to the slabby summit of Creag Leacach with its dry stone dyke and small cairn. Weather good with very good views from top. Returned to bealach and cairn walking around Glas Maol before descending to Meall Odhar and from there down track to Car Park.

Two great hills, nice and accessible from the road. Cheers Cameron. Bit different to my day on these two in December - one of my best hill days of last year. :D
