Meall Mor #2

Sub 2000s: Meall Mor (Moy)

Date walked: 08/08/2017

Time taken: 2 hours

Distance: 5.4km

Ascent: 200m

Having climbed Meall Mor in Angus, it was about time I attempted to climb its namesake near Moy, especially since I have driven past it so many times on the A9. The route that dogplodder posted recently looked good and I took all the advice that was kindly provided (Many Thanks! viewtopic.php?f=9&t=67709). The route was relatively easy to follow, despite it being very wet underfoot. Since the report in October, the logging machines have been busy and many of the trees on the way to the relay mast have all gone (pics below). I didn't see any machines around, however, they were very helpful because the tracks they left were much drier than the original track. Time was a bit tight so I didn't make it over to Beinn a' Bheurlaich, on a dry or frosty day however, I would be keen for a return visit. :)

The turning circle just up from the site entrance, not many trees left here.

On the way to the relay mast, the ground wasn't too wet here.

Looking back toward the A9 and my starting point. The newly felled area is just downhill, the old track is still there, it was particularly muddy though.

At last, The relay mast! There is a handy gate in the fence just out of shot to the left.
