Thanks to John Seddon for adding this peak.
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
Thanks to John Seddon for this description.
