Parked at the entrance to an old forestry track opposite Edenchip about 1.5k south of Lochearnhead cross the road and follow the drive to Edinchip then the signs to Glen kendrum through the forestry. As you near the end of the forestry you will see Creag Mac Ranaich, continue up the track to the bealach between Creag Mac Ranaich and Meall an t-Seallaidh then watch out for a wee track and an old fence line which marks the route up the grassy slopes to Creag Mac Ranaich, the top has two summits the most northerly being the true.
Descend to the track at the Bealach again, cross the track and continue up heading south west over the heathery slopes and again follow a line of old fence posts to the col between Meall an Fhiodhain and Carn Creag. Turn south and ascend Carn Creag over grassy slopes following the fence posts to the trig point and summit. To descend continue following the fence posts for abot 1k then turn east down the grassy and heathery slopes to Kendrum Burn and the track leading back to Edinchip. If the burn is in spate simply follow it back to the forrestry area and old railway (now a cycle track) where you will get accross. We all had a great days walking with fantastic views of the surrounding hills. Unfortunately I went over on my ankle and ended up doing a double sommersault with twist onto the heather for a nice soft landing now have a sprained and swollen ankle but still enjoyed the day. Thanks to Jen Fraser and Rob who came to my assistance and rendered first aid without laughing too much. A couple of photos are attached but not great quality.

We did these two from Glen Dochart, walking out Glen Kendrum to Lochearnhead where we had left a second car. Meall an-t-Seallaidh is a great viewpoint for Loch Earn. :D

Yes a great walk with fantastic views on a clear day but no snow on them yet, maybe in a week or two.
Your right it would be perfect with the snow on.
Ankle it getting better all the time thanks another week and it should be back to normal.
