I just wanted to add a few points to the reports already written. This is for the Glen Dochart approach to Meall Glas/Sgiath Chuill
First, there is space for 4 cars - 5 if they are well parked - on the side road up to Auchessan. I'm not sure they would take kindly to your parking by the bins, as suggested in another report. It's grassy and I think you might churn it up.
Secondly, although the weather had been exceptionally wet in the recent past, the going was not as boggy as I had been fearing. A few peat hags, nothing to really hold you up and the occasional burn we had to jump was no problem.
Finally, although it is a steep pull up both of these hills, the grass is well interspersed with other vegetation, so it was quite grippy and I never worried that I might slip and fall. It was just hard work, not worrying.
Took us 7 1/2 hours including stops, on a fine day; we're not fast.
