Situated on the western fringes of Easter Ross, Beinn a' Chaisteil with its lower neighbour Meall a' Ghrianain rise above the eastern shores of Loch Vaich. These heather clad hills have grass covered wide plateau crests which make for delightful walking.

The most direct approach is from on the estate roads that begin from Black Bridge near Aultguish Inn. A finer route which starts from Alladale Estate also follows estate roads and tracks.
