Having climbed Meall Reamhar and Meall nan CaorachIn in the morning, there was time to for a third Graham, Meall Dearg, a bit further toward Aberfeldy on the A826.
A track led west off the road.

It joined General Wade's military road, but after a short distance it was a case of striking west across country.

The climb to the windy summit of Meall Dearg (690m) was rough, with long heather and bracken.

The view north included Schiehallion and the Carn Mairg group of Munros.

Nice to see what the views were like! We went up from Amulree the other weekend which at least has good tracks for the approach before the yomp to the summit & back.
