Meall Corranaich and Meall a' Choire Leith
Lawers Hills, near Killin
of the Lawers hills can be completed in one long traverse, but
my walking mate for the day was in no mood for an extravaganza.
So, if it's a short hill walk you're after, taking in a couple
of munros, these two hills provide just enough to meet your
the hordes will have taken the "motorway" up Ben Lawers, these
2 hills offer a little more solitude and a lot less walking
traffic. Weather permitting there are good views to the east
towards Lochan Daimh, and the walk also gives a craggy perspective
on the rest of the Lawers ridge to the east.
is enough parking space for 3 cars at the cairn (multimap),
and if you're too late more parking space is available at
the head of Lochan na Larige.
the cairn, follow the rough track east across the peat bogs.
The track eventually runs along side some fence posts which
lead directly up the grassy slopes to the summit of the first
munro Meall Corranaich (1069m, GR616410). If it's windy dont
expect much shelter behind the summit cairn..... there's not
much to hide behind.
Meall Corranaich follow the gentle ridge north and be sure
to follow the ridge NNE to make your way to Meall a' Choire
Leith. The main ridge NW should be avoided although everyone
that we met had drifted off some way along this ridge before
discovering their error.... and this was on a clear day.
on the correct bearing, it's a gentle climb north from the
col to the summit of Meall a'Choire Leith (926m, GR613439).
the summit head SWW down the steep grassy slopes to the
burn (there is a sketchy track most of the way).
the burn head 2km SSW across the peat bogs to get back to
the start point. (In mist a compass will be particularly
useful for this part of the walk, as the track is unclear
and the lie of the land means that the cairn is totally
hidden from view until you are right at it.)
