One of a line of remnant stubs of Torridonian Sandstone that stand as sentinels down the North West Coast of Scotland above the ancient Lewisian Gneiss plateau. Known as the "Sugarloaf" this is one of the most photogenic peaks in the UK. My preference is for the approach from Inverkirkaig which is a bit longer than via Glen Canisp. Main summit Caisteal Liath is relatively easy, but eastern summit Meall Mheadhonach needs more care and experience
|Best months for climbing:||Mar, Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep|

- Log #13781 - by thomas german on May 14, 2001Not sure which route I climbed. I couldn't seem to find the portcullis route up the NW face. I probably did a mixture of a few different routes.
- Log #13782 - by Kirsti Nicholson on May 03, 2001Does anyone have any photos of this area they are willing to publish since mine were lost?
