Managed Meall Mor with the corbett Stob a'Chroin from Inverlochlairg and then returned on the Landrover track on the north side of the glen. A full days walk for those who don't mind largely trackless terrain with plenty of steepish ascent (I would guess 1300m at least). Views are very good though so leave for a clear day as finding either cairn could otherwise present a challenge!
