Meall Dubh is the highest point of the moors between Glen Garry and Glen Moriston. In recent years a windfarm has been constructed across the higher slopes. Most guidebooks describe an ascent from the west, but it is much easier and quicker from the north.
Region: Fort William
Altitude: 788 metres

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.
