Spidean Mialach is normally climbed in conjunction with Gleouraich. The two are connected by a long ridge to the north of Loch Quoich. These are superb Munros with 2 very different characters to them. The south facing slopes are largely grassy easy slopes attracting a whole series of fauna. The north side is much harsher and has a whole array of craggy corries biting into the face for the entire duration of the ridge.
Spidean Mialach is the smaller of the 2 Munros and has 3 deep corries on its north face. Its summit ridge is sharp and continues west to a high col before connecting with neighbouring Munro Gleouraich.
The best views are to the SW looking over Loch Quoich and to the north face of the long South Loch Quoich Ridge taking in 5 other Munros.
These are superb Knoydart Munros as you would expect. They are less remote than their neighbours to the south of Loch Quoich and possibly seen as the easiest of the area.
