Meall Tairneachan, Perthshire

On Saturday I hiked up the Corbett Meall Tairneachan, 787 m (2582 ft), near the Munro Schiehallion in Perthshire.

We drove alongside Loch Tummel and there was plenty of ice on the surface. Mist hung over the loch, but climbed out of it further along the road.



We couldn't have asked for a better day to do this hill. The view of surrounding peaks was amazing, and it wasn't long before we spotted Ben Nevis in the distance! It was as if the whole of Scotland was laid out in a 360 degree view around us. We didn't see another person on the entire walk!
