The Sow of Atholl
Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation
The Sow of Atholl is divided from the other Drumochter mountains by a low bealach and thus this steep-sided block of moorland has Corbett status. It is often climbed in combination with the neighbouring Munros, but an easier short day is the ascent from Dalnapsidal.
Altitude: 803 metres

The ascent being short, it is straightforward to add the ascent of the Meall na Leitreach to the day.
The Sow can also be done as a prelude to neighbouring Munro Sgairneach Mhor and its neighbours.
