Meall Corranaich & 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.

Terrain

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.

Start

Car park just north of summit of Lairig an Lochain. Map and directions.
