Meall Corranaich and Meall a'Choire Leith

This is a relatively straight forward walk following the route given on the Walkhignlands website but suits my present level of fitness so here it is.

Grade: Moderate (please see explanation)

  • Distance: 9.5 km
  • Ascent: 740m
  • Time: 5-6 hours
  • Meetup Location: On the single track road leading from Loch Tay past the site of the old Ben Lawers Visitor Centre and just past the end of the loch. N 56°32'43.08" W 4°17'21.84"
  • Suitability: This ridge gives fine views across to the surrounding hills of the Lawers group, but has a reputation for being a little boggy on the approach. You should have previous hillwalking experience, and know you are fit enough to complete the whole ridge without problem. We will walk AS A GROUP at a MODERATE pace. Please ensure you come equipped properly to cope with the unpredictable Scottish mountain weather - warm , waterproof clothing, extra layers,gloves,hat,headtorch. If there is snow or ice, axes and crampons may be necessary.
  • Please read our Participation Statement .

      Hi David, could you possibly give me a lift for that one? I will check the weather conditions later on and if they're not too harsh for me to go without crampons and ice axe, I'd be most happy to go.
