Meall Dubh from Glen Moriston

Other routes and challenges

The above route is the most straightforward, making maximum use of the windfarm tracks. These can be avoided on a route from the A87 road to the west, but this is rough, boggy going. There are further tracks on the southeast flank of the hill; an ascent from the Loch Lundie area may be feasible.
