Sgiath Chuil & Meal Glas
The ascent of Sgiath Chuil and Meal Glas provides an adventure to test the experienced hill walker. These two munros lie to the north of the A85 in Glen Dochart and are usually climbed from Glen Lochay in the north. The challenge of this excursion which is mainly over open ground is a river crossing at a ford at the start and end of the day. Although in July the water level will be low the ford will need to be crossed so spare footware will be required. Additionally the route between the two summits requires a 300m descent to the intervening bealach and then a climb again to the next summit. For those up to the challenge the two summits afford and energetic day on the hills and excellent views Ben More to the south and Ben Lawers range.
The nature of hill walking potentially involves leaders or other participants in providing close assistance to others. For everybody’s protection those people classified as ‘vulnerable adults’ or young people under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an appropriate carer or responsible adult. No special arrangements are available to provide independent supervision for vulnerable people, and the accompanying carer takes full responsibility for them. The carer or parent is best placed to judge the capability of their charges.
We do ask that you only bring children on a walk if you are confident that they will be able to complete it comfortably. At all times, children must be accompanied by an appropriate adult who must take full responsibility for them.
3. Lower age limits.
No children under the age of 16 are allowed on Extra Hard or Hard walks. Children over the age of 12 are permitted on Medium and Easy walks provided that they are accompanied by a responsible adult.
In common with other similar events and in consideration for others, dogs are not allowed (guide dogs excepted).
Please do not smoke on walks, out of consideration to others.
