Details for Meall Glas

Meall Glas has two main ridges, the eastern ridge curves round the corrie dropping to a top of 908 metres then rises north east linking the summit of Beinn Cheathaich (937 metres) just over 1.5 km to the east. The north western ridge drops into Glen Lochay and is a popular access point for direct ascent to the summit.

Meall Glas has no real distinctive mountainous character, but is more of the nature of high bleak moreland and is mainly composed of grassy rolling slopes.However, the summit ridge has steeper slopes and rocky outcrops around it but there are no problems to encounter.

Perhaps the best approach is from Glen Lochay, were an ascent can be made from Kenknock via a track by the Lubchurran Burn. Sgiath Chuil is also easly accessed from Meall Glas to the east.
