  Meall Bhanbhaidh trail head by road B8004.


From the centre of Fort William rive a little north on road A82. Turn left onto road A830 and drive 1.9 km. Turn right onto road B8004, signed for "Gairlochy", and drive 2.0 km to where you'll find a gate and a green metal cabinet on the left hand side of the road. Park here.

Start your hike by crossing the gate, then turn a little left and find your best way through the few metres of bush. Once through the bush hike north-west all the way to the summit, which is marked by a concrete cairn.

Descend by reversing your ascent route.

After a couple of days in Fort William we were heading back to Norway this Monday. I decided to throw in a hike a few kilometres from where we were staying, while Erling and Håvard were slowly getting out of bed.

The weather was relatively nice, with mountains covered with snow down to 400 metres.
