Sgiath Chuil and Meal Glas from Glen Lochay

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

These two rather undistinguished Munros are divided by a steep-sided and low bealach making for a strenuous day with some good views of the surrounding hills. More usually climbed via a boggy approach from Auchessan to the south, this northerly route gives slightly drier going but involves a river crossing near the start.


Mostly gentle hills but with a very steep and time consuming descent and reascent to pass from one to the other. Much of the route is pathless and the start and finish involve a river crossing, impossible under spate.
