Meall Corranaich and Meall a'Choire Leith

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

These two Munros form the westward end of the great Ben Lawers ridge. The start at almost 550 metres makes this a short round for baggers but the terrain is very rough - and peat bogs unavoidable.


Paths are faint (a line of fenceposts helps for the ascent of Meall Corranaich); much of the going is boggy.

Public Transport

No public transport to the start.


Car park just north of summit of Lairig an Lochain. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
