There just doesn't seem to be any climbing for this munro or Meall Buidhe which can be climbed on the same day whilst in the area as the road takes you over 400 metres high.

The top of Creag an Fheadain is a fine spot for views east down Glen Lyon and to the Ben Lawers ridge, eight miles away as the crow flies.
