Maoile Lunndaidh is a large and remote Munro lying to the south of Glen Carron. It is rather unique for the western Munros in that it has a large flat summit plateau, which could almost be seen as Cairngorm like. The plateau curves round numerous corries which bite into the sides, the most prominent of these being Fuar-tholl Mor, which makes a huge bite into the northern face. The plateau houses several tops with the true top being notoriously difficult to define with much controversy over the years as to which it should be. Since 1981 it has been decided that the true summit lies in the far east section of the plateau.
Maoile Lunndaidh is a complex Munro with craggy slopes on most of its faces. especially round its northern and southern corries which almost split the Munro in two! On the western end of the summit plateau is the subsidiary peak of Carn nam Fiaclan.
Access is normally from the NW at Craig on to the A890 near Achnashellach. A network of stalkers paths lead to Glenuaig Lodge. Maoile Lunndaidh's northern ridge (staying east of Fuar-tholl Mor) can then be followed to the summit.
Maoile Lunndaidh is a fine Munro and the long walk in makes it feel in every way an expedition. Just what you would expect from these fantastic Torridon Munros!
