Merkland CorbettsBetween the drab moorloand around Loch Shin and the dramatic north-west coast is a quiet transitional area with several peaks. Beinn Leoid, Ben Hee and Meallan Liath Coire Mhic Dhughaill are the highest and distinct enough to be classified Corbetts.
Main route summary
Access to the Merkland Corbetts and Grahams is typically on distinct stalkers paths lower down, with ground higher up more often heather or grass covered, pathless and fairly featureless. Navigation skills will therefore be tested in misty conditions !
