Meall Ghaordaidh from Glen Lochay

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Meall Ghaordaidh (named on some OS maps as Meall Ghaordie) is one of the less distinguished Munros, the usual ascent from Glen Lochay being up a broad grassy shoulder, though the upper section is rockier and the summit rewards with a good view. The Glen Lyon side looks more interesting but is little visited.


Rough track, then hill path - very boggy in places. Rockier near summit.

Public Transport

No public transport to the start.


Space to park 100m west of bridge over Allt Dhuin Croisg. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.

Deer Stalking information

South of summit: Boreland Estate. Stalking between mid July and 20 Oct. No stalking on Sundays. The main route via the south-east ridge from the roadside sign just west of Duncroisk is always OK. If further information is needed please phone 01567 829053.
