Munro featured in walk of the week
Bookmark and Share
The Munro of Meall Nan Eun in Glen Etive has been featured by the Scotsman Newspaper as its Walk of the Week.

Standing at 3,045 ft (928 m) high, the mountain is described by writer Robin Howie as one that can easily mislead walkers in bad weather if they are climbing it via the popular route from Glen Ceitlein.

He explained: "The summit plateau cannot be seen and the lie of the land suggests that a way more to the left is the correct approach."

Those planning to climb Munros may wish to pick up some Ordnance Survey maps from a Go Outdoors store to avoid such navigational problems.

The total number of Munros remains 283 after the current status of two peaks was confirmed by a new survey using ultra-accurate GPS equipment.

Welsh hill sleuths Graham Jackson and Myrddyn Phillips measured Beinn a' Chleibh and The Fara for the Munro Society.

Results produced last week proved that the previously recorded heights of 916 m (3,006 ft) for Bienn a' Chleibh and 911 m (2,990 ft) for the Fara were correct and they retain Munro and Corbett status respectively.
