Meall Dearg from the north
If you want to avoid the scrambling on the Aonach Eagach, this approach to Meall Dearg - the Munro in the centre of the ridge - avoids any scrambling. The going is boggy but the summit rewards with fabulous views of this amazing ridge.
Rough path, very boggy in places, steep ground on ridge but no difficulties.
Nearest bus Kinlochleven.
