Meall Horn

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Meall Horn may attract little attention, its rounded dome rather overshadowed by the more distinctive mountains around it, but it offers a grand circuit with some superb views of those illustrious neighbours.


Good tracks for the approach and return, otherwise pathless but decent hillwalking terrain with one section of peat hags on ascent.

Public Transport

Nearest bus stop is Achfary (bus 805/806 from Durness and Lairg).


Parking where track leaves A838 1.5km north of Achfary; there is space before the private road sign. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
