Above Loch an Daimh - Stuchd an Lochain and Meall BuidheThe hills above Loch an Daimh are not particularly dramatic or outstanding. Although not far from the populated areas of Stirling and Perth, they somehow feel remote and it is this that makes them particularly memorable.
Main route summary
Starting from the dam at the eastern end of Loch an Daimh, both Munros will need to be bagged piecemeal, a circular walk over them is just a bit impractible (and boggy).
Both Munro peaks offer fine views, with the summit of Meall Buidhe being an excellent vantage point to look over Rannoch.
