Meallan Liath Coire Mhic Dhughaill
The hill with the longest name in Scotland makes for an enjoyable circuit with - as is usual in the far northwest - stunning summit views.
Grassy stalkers' track for initial ascent, then pathless ridges - heather at first, becoming rockier. Descent crosses peat bogs and includes burn crossing.
A838 just south of Kinloch.
