Meall nan Tarmachan

Meall nan Tarmachan 1,043 m (3,422 ft) is a mountain in the Southern Highlands of Scotland near Killin just west of Ben Lawers. It is often climbed as part of the Tarmachan ridge, the other peaks of which are Meall Garbh (1026 m), Beinn nan Eachan (1000 m) and Creag na Caillich (914 m); these three peaks are Tops rather than Munros, and lie to the south-west of Meall nan Tarmachan.

It is normally approached from the east via the road heading north from the Ben Lawers visitors centre. From the Ben Lawers visitors centre the summit is only a short walk, with no real difficulties. Traversing the entire Tarmachan ridge does however involve some scrambling. Unfortunately the clag was down on the ridge when we took the photos of this route. Forecast to lift the clag never did, we waited around for a while but eventually the wind and driving rain got to us so we had to make a shortcut exit from Meall Garbh back to the van.
