Meall Chuaich, Drumochter
Meall Chuaich is a lumpy Munro which lacks many distinctive features; it is however a good viewpoint for upper Badenoch and Strathspey.
Tracks for the approach followed by an eroded path up the hill itself make this one of the simpler Munro summits.
None to start.
Layby on A9 just south of Cuaich.
