Tom Meadhoin and Beinn na Gucaig

Filed under: Running — admin @ 3:04 pm

Two weekend days, two local, only-just Grahams and still no-one else on the hill, bringing my current run of completely solitary outings to eight. But perhaps not too surprising when I’ve lived here for twenty-six years, been visiting the hills for considerably longer and never done either of these before!

While you can do this pair as a loop incorporating the intervening Marilyn of Doire Ban, I chose to run two separate, short out-and-backs. And they both (like so many otherwise undistinguished lower hills) offer interesting new perspectives on their higher neighbours, with the view of Beinn a’ Bheithir from Tom Meadhoin in particular being as fine as you’ll get from anywhere and Mam na Gualainn also looking almost as steeply interesting from there as its sibling Beinn na Caillich from Kinlochleven. Also worth pointing out that the better path for the first few hundred metres from the Loch Leven roadside for that trip is the one starting directly from the parking place rather than the signposted right of way just to the west.
