Meall Chuaich

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This undistinguished hill hidden up a glen near Dalwhinnie offers one of the shorter and more straightforward ascents amongst the Munros. The usual approach follows some hydro-electric scheme works before an ascent up a broad dome. The position gives it great views over Badenoch, however.

Detailed route description and map

Meall Chuaich from near Dalwhinnie

Other routes and challenges

The route given above is much the shortest, although for a longer outing the Graham Creag Ruadh could be readily included.

The much longer approach from Glen Tromie has the benefit of a track starting across the river from Bhran Cottage. It climbs high up the broad ridge towards Carn Thomais.
