A weekend of guided hiking on the Glen Lochay Munros

As you drive through Glen Dochart and past Crianarich and Tyndrum, the view to the north is dominated by the Glen Lochay hills. Sgiath Chuill, Meall Ghlas and Ben Challum show their southern aspects from this angle, with mighty Beinn Sheasgarnich and rugged Creag Mhor hidden well out of sight. To bag these mountain summits, we'll take 3 days of relaxed hiking, heading in from quiet Glen Lochay on two of the days and from Tyndrum on the third day.
