Sgiath Chuil and Meal Glas from Glen Lochay

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

These two rather neglected Munros are divided by a very steep-sided and low bealach, making the ascent of both into a strenuous day. More usually climbed via a boggy approach from Glen Dochart to the south, this northerly route gives slightly drier going but involves a river crossing near the start.

Terrain

The River Lochay must be forded near the start of the route- this is impossible in spate. Track then grassy going for ascent of Meall Glas, though pathless. Extremely steep and time consuming descent and reascent between the two Munros. Descent route is boggy and time-consuming.

Public Transport

None.

Start

Car park 1km short of road end in Glen Lochay. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
