Cona Mheall is another fantastic Munro in this region of the Highlands. It is connected to its larger neighbour Beinn Dearg via a sharp ridge running round the rim of Coire Ghranda, a superb corrie which both of these Munros overlook. It is a dark and concealed corrie bound by the sheer faces of both Munros and holds Lochan a Coire Ghranda giving it a mythical appearance.
Cona Mheall therefore has its steepest cliffs to the west and picking you way up through the narrow southern end makes for a fantastic ascent. The eastern slopes are less steep and lead to a low col between neighbouring Munro Am Faochagach.
The best views from the summit are undoubtedly to the west to the immediate Beinn Dearg and Corrie Ghranda however the views east and south to the desolate Fannaichs are also worthy of a mention.
Cona Mheall can be combined with the other Munros west and north in the Beinn Dearg group to make a long and rewarding day out in the hills
