Sgiath Chuil is normally climbed in conjunction with Meall Glas which are connected via an E - W ridge with a low col. Sgiath Chuil is the highest point on a N-S running ridge which takes in several other tops all of roughly the same size but Sgiath Chuil is the largest therefore the Munro. The Munro separates Glen Dochart to the south from Glen Lochay in the North. It is normally climbed from the south due to the ease of access from the A85. From the south the steep southern end of the summit ridge is well seen and makes Sgiath Chuil look far more appealing than its neighbour Munro Meall Glas.
This Munro is not known as one of the greatest but you can fine good aspects to it including fantastic views of the Crianlarich Hills in particular Ben More and Stob Binnein which are the landmark peaks in the area. Since this hill is rarely visited by anyone other than Munroists a great sense of solitude can be usually be achieved.
