Meall nan Aighean: Mistaken as Creag Mhor OS 1:25K

Date walked: 15/02/2017

Time taken: 1 hour

Ascent: 10m

The only walk involved here was up three flights of stairs to my studio. In planning a walk , I noticed M169 Meall nan Aighean (SMC Munros Tables) is wrongly shown as Creag Mhor on Walkhighlands OS 1:25K (2010).

There's a possible navigational risk the error has been compounded by this version of the map, because Creag Mhor is shown twice. It's true location is at the edge of some cliffs, which in poorly visibility and confusion about the map, could be dangerous.

Please be aware of the correct location for Creag Mhor (822 metres)
NN 71267 48993 Lat: 56,61505 Lon: -4.099253

PS. The only Munro in the Tables by the name Creag Mhor is M084, in the Forrest of Mamlorn NN 391 361.
