Meall Dubh, from Glen Moriston
Meall Dubh is an unassuming Corbett at the heart of the Highlands, many of its slopes now decorated with windfarm turbines. However, its position ensures that the view west from the massive summit cairn is magnificent on a good day - a slice of West Highland mountain grandeur.
Good track initially, then pathless, mostly heathery hillsides.
The start is passed by buses between Inverness and the Isle of Skye.
Layby on N side of A887 at NH251084.
