Meall a'Bhuiridh is the highest of the Black Mount and has a good position on the edge of Rannoch Moor, making it a grand viewpoint. The sense of wildness on the ascent is rather lessened by ski-tows almost to the summit.
Region: Fort William
Altitude: 1108 metres

Other routes and challenges
To avoid the ski-tows and instead experience a challenging scramble, it is possible to start from the Glen Etive road, ford the River Etive and then ascend the crags of Sron na Creise before continuing to Creise before ascending Meall a' Bhuiridh - a much more adventurous outing.
The classic long day hereabouts is the Black Mount traverse of four Munros. Start with Stob a'Choire Odhair and Stob Ghabhar before following ridges to Clach Liathad. From here Creise can be ascended, and then Meall a'Bhuiridh as the final summit before a descent to the ski-centre.
