Meall na Teanga (917m, Munro) – Hill of the tongue
Meall Coire Lochain (906m, Corbett Top) – Hill of the corrie with the lochans
Meall Odhar (875m) – dun-coloured round hill
A fresh approach to this Munro avoids the usual bagging route, and includes some other worthy hills and three fine corries that would otherwise be neglected. *For a shorter but nonetheless interesting day, miss out the Munro altogether, saving 1.4km and 200m ascent.
Start from the CP at Clunes on the NW bank of Loch Lochy at NN204886. Head E on the forest track, soon forking left and climbing gradually NE to reach the upper track. Continue NE for 3Km to the Allt na Faing. Follow the burn up NW through the forested area to reach Coire Lochain.
From the shore of the lochan, climb S up the ridge to Sron Bhreac, turning W, and gaining height, follow the rim of Coire Lochain, which curves N to reach the summit of Meall Coire Lochain, 906m. Descend steeply NE on the narrow ridge, across the col and climb to the summit of Meall na Teanga, 918m. Return to the col and climb back up to Meall Coire Lochain, turning W around the rim of Coire Odhar Beag to the summit of Meall Odhar, 875m. Continue W around the rim of Coire Odhar Mor to the next summit, 871m. Turn SW and head down over the spur of Meall Breac, curving S to a dip then up to the summit of Ruighe na Beinne, 645m, overlooking the Allt Bhan.
Continue S down to a small summit, Creag Dhonnerx, 493m. Head SSE down the slope to a corner of the forest at WP NN1961389164. A further 200m S of here a forest track will be found after a descent of 80m through connifer trees. Head W a short distance on the track until it widens at a passing place. Here turn S again down through mixed woodland, curving SE to reach the road bridge over the Allt Bhan. Follow the road back to the start.
