Westernmost Mamores peak featured
Bookmark and Share
The westernmost Munro in the Mamores region has been featured in the Scotsman newspaper as its Walk of the Week.

People donning hiking boots and grabbing their fleeces to bag some Munros this autumn may wish to consider the route, which the paper noted eschews the normal way up from Glen Nevis.

Instead it starts from a track road out of Fort William that meets the West Highland Way.

From here, it climbs north-north-east and then up a ridge over the subsidiary top of Meall a'Chaorainn on its way to the 3,081 ft summit.

The paper notes the mountain is often climbed with Sgurr a' Mhaim and those doing this will also encounter a third Munro - Stob Ban - in between the pair.

People climbing in autumn may find the shorter daylight hours mean Mullach nan Coirean and Stob Ban are all they can climb, with a long path from the col to the east of the latter peak providing a descent into Glen Nevis.
