Meall a’ Choire Leith is normally climbedd in conjunction with Meall Corranaich via its long southern ridge. They lie out with the main ridge route further east that takes in 5 Munros including Ben Lawers. This does mean you may get a small bit of solitude on the hill as you leave the crowds behind on Ben Lawers. The hill is uncomplicated with mostly grassy slopes preventing any real difficulties. This region is prone to a lot of snow in the winter however so this may not necessarily be the case and care should be taken.
For most the route starts at Lochan na Lairige near to the dam where there is limited parking places. A sharp pull up Meall Corrainaich’s south western ridge will get you to the summit and a walk along its north eastern ridge will connect you with Meall a’ Choire Leith.
There are excellent views to be had throughout of the main Lawers ridge to the east. This is a good place to appreciate the craggy complex structure of Ben Lawers and An Stuc’s western faces,
