Meall Corranaich

Hiking Highlight

Created by komoot users
Recommended by 7 out of 7 hikers

The western extent of the Ben Lawers range, Meall Corranaich is a Munro and rises to 3,507 feet (1,069 m) among the neighbouring Munros of Beinn Ghlas, Ben Lawers and Meall a’ Choire Lèith. If you’re bagging peaks, it’s common to summit the former in combination with Meall Corranaich, and in good weather, the pair can make for quite an easy day. 


The classic starting point is at the north end of Lochan na Làirige which is accessed by a lane linking Glen Lyon to Loch Tay. The lane is sometimes closed in winter, so low season ascents may require extra planning. No matter what time of year you head off up this Munro, the terrain is rough and can be very boggy, particularly near the beginning. As such, solid, waterproof boots and a good sense of humour are essential.


There’s nothing technical on the mostly pathless ascent and when you reach the top, the views are spectacular.


Tips

  • Adventurer Nic

    Meall Corranaich is a 1,069m Munro mountain in the Scottish Highlands. It is often climbed alongside Meall a' Choire Leith but sometimes as part of a huge day with the five Munros in the Ben Lawers range. Views across to the Ben Lawers range are simply magnificent from the summit.

    The blessing is also that this Munro climb starts at an elevated 550m thanks to the tarmacked high mountain pass so it's great for beginners or those wanting to build their hill fitness - getting over 1,000m without as much effort as with other Munros.
