Creag Meagaidh is a vast plateau, and one of the higher mountains of the central Highlands - often recognisable from afar due to the distinctive cleft of the Window. The mountain is chiefly famed for the magnificent Coire Ardair, second only to Ben Nevis as mecca for ice-climbers.
Region: Fort William
Altitude: 1130 metres

Other routes and challenges
An alternative approach to Creag Meagaidh itself is along the southwest ridge. There is a drystone dyke along much of it, after gaining Creag na Cailliche across pathless terrain from Moy.
The fittest baggers will extend the route by adding in Beinn a' Chaorainn and Beinn Teallach.
