Viewed from the A9, Beinn Mheadhonach appears conical in shape with its southern shoulder standing above Glen Tilt. It is however a rather long wide ridge stretching south-north and clad for the most part in heather and grass.

The most direct route to the base of Beinn Mheadhonach travels up Glen Tilt, with most of this on a fine estate track. Being situated between higher Beinn Dearg and Carn a' Chlamain, a fine day can be had combining these peaks into one long hillwalking route.
