Meall Greigh, Meall Garbh and An Stùc

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

The eastern three Munros of the Lawers range give an excellent circuit of the corrie holding Lochan nan Cat, the finest feature of the range. The recently-promoted Munro of An Stùc involves a steep scramble and this route is much more challenging than the usual trade route to Ben Lawers itself. The walk can easily be extended to take in the higher summit.


There is a steep and loose scramble to ascend An Stùc, and a steep descent to Lochan nan Cat that requires care. Apart from this the ridgewalk is straightforward, though boggy on the return from the lochan. There is not a continuous path for this walk.
