Meall Garbh (Lawers) - DESCRIPTION

Meall Garbh sits on the edge of the arc which makes up the group of Munros at the head of the Lawers Burn. In comparison to its neighbouring Munro An Stuc it is much more bulky and much less craggy although both are at equal altitude.

Meall Garbh sits at the end of Lochan na Cat and if climbing on its own it is a steep climb up from here to reach its lowest col. For most Meall Garbh will be a continuation on the main Lawers ridge which connects up 4 or 5 Munros (depending on how many you wish to do) starting from Ben Lawers furthest West to Meall Greigh furthest east.

The craggiest areas are to the south but even these are minimal and should offer no difficulties. It is also from the south that you can see Meall Garbh’s best feature...the views of Lochan na Cat like all 5 Munros that make up the arc these are tremendous throughout the entire walk.

Overall Meall Garbh is not the most interesting of Munros and if it was not a Munro it would probably be very rarely visited as its neighbour An Stuc offers a much more challenging climb.

Parking is available at Lawers Visitor Centre if tackling this as part of the Lawers ridge or at the Lawers Hotel if you are choosing to avoid climbing Ben Lawers with the route.
