Meall Chuaich, Drumochter

Route: Meall Chuaich, Drumochter

Munros: Meall Chuaich

Date walked: 22/07/2008

Followed the route as described here, however, got a little confused at the start. There is currently a construction site setting up on the track in where the track meets the aquaduct. Tried to avoid this, but soon realised that we had to go through it to be on track.
The track along the side of the aquaduct quickly leads you past the small power station and towards the loch. If you wanted to, it would be very easy to cycle to the bothy, and would certainly speed the day up. From the bothy onwards, it is a steady climb all the way to the summit - nothing too strenuous. Sadly, the summit no longer resembles the picture. The small cairn is now a scattered pile of stones.

Athough not a classic Munro there was a lot to see. Hares running about, lots of bird life - including stonechats and golden plovers, and lots of wild flowers. The track next to the aquaduct even provided a delicious snack of wild strawberries.
