Meall a Ghiubhais is a steep, rugged Corbett situated just north of Beinn Eighe. It gives excellent views over Beinn Eighe and its eastern summit is one of the best viewpoints for Loch Maree. The 'Mountain Trail' is used for half of the ascent.


The Mountain Trail is steep and rocky but well waymarked. The ascent of the mountain beyond is rough and steep, with some scree; there is no path.
