This was to be a wee fill gap of time as I was heading towards Killin and having more time on hand had decided last minute to have a change of plan, rather than Drummond Hill at the North of Kenmore it made much more sense to do a Graham instead. Had read JC's and GraemeD's reports and had decided to mopre or less follow Graeme route. Parked car at the roadside gate at White Cairn, just about enough room for a single car at one side and headed on up the track to reach the line of General Wade's Military road, turned right up the track and started climbing slowly about 400m and just went for it over the boggy wet and rough heather.

View of the summit from the lower South top, in between there are many peat hags and quite boggy areas so a direct route is not possible. There is also a new bulldozed track around the summit of Meall Dearg which may be used for the fishing at Loch Fender as well as other sporting activities by the estate
