Beinn Leoid and Meallan a' Chuail from the A838

Beinn Leoid is a rather neglected Corbett, being remote and hidden from roads. This route combines it with the fine Graham Meallan a' Chuail using an excellent stalkers' path for the approach. Baggers could easily extend the route to take in the additional but undistinguished Graham of Meall an Fheur Loch.


Excellent stalkers path initially, then pathless ridges and short rough stretch on return.

Public Transport
