Meall a’ Bhuirdh is one of the 4 peaks which make up the Black Mount one of Scotland’s more popular groups of mountains and for very good reason. Meall a Bhuirdh will be instantly recognisable to all the skiers as Glencoe Ski Centre is based all over its huge coire. The centre has seen tough challenges in poor winters of recent years. On a winters day Meall a Bhuirdh may not be for everyone as the crowds can as expected can get pretty intense and any feeling of solitude goes right out the window. The summit itself though should be relatively skier free. Meall a Bhuirdh is a relatively high Munro sitting at 1108m only 2m shorter than its neighbour Creise. The North West facing slopes on Meall a’ Bhuirdh have some very impressive scree formations.
Meall a’ Bhuirdh is normally climbed with Creise via a fantastic craggy col with brilliant scrambling opportunities between the two.
Parking is available at the Glencoe Ski Centre right at the foot of Meall a’ Bhuirdh
