Date: Saturday 16 February 2008
Time: 5 hrs 15 mins
Company: Just me
Parked at the church in Balquhidder, where there is room for several cars.
Rob Roy's Grave in Balquhidder Church graveyard:
The path up Kirkton Glen can be reached from either side of the church.
Start of path up Kirkton Glen:
Meall an t-Seallaidh from Kirkton Glen:
Meall an t-Seallaidh is surrounded by lots of trees.
Need to walk several kilometres up Kirkton Glen to skirt around them.
Top of Meall an t-Seallaidh from Kirkton Glen:
The ridge of this minor top looks a nice climb.
No idea if it has been climbed previously.
On reaching the end of the forest, I decided to extend the walk by ascending several tops en-route to Meall an t-Seallaidh including the 813m top and Cam Chreag.
On reaching the ridge, I saw what I think was a Kestrel.
I had to put on my fleece as I progressed along the ridge as it got quite cold.

Summit of Meall an t-Seallaidh:
I returned as per the route in the SMC Corbett guidebook.
The hill is dog-friendly except for a single 3ft fence at the end of the forest in Kirkton Glen.
