Maoile Lunndaidh is sometimes referred to as Creag Toll a' Choin - more properly the name of a creag below what recent surveys have shown to be its highest point. It's a shy Munro hidden away from most viewpoints. Its initially lumpen appearance is livened up by some fine corries, and the ascent gives a long and tiring day.
The approach is on an excellent track, where a mountain bike could be used. When this is left there is a very rough section of bog to cross, before the steep and trackless ascent of the mountain itself.
