West of the Great Glen, the grassy slopes of Meall a' Phubuill stand above the watershed that rises between Glen Loy and Gleann Suileag.

With its modest height and close proximity to roads, Meall a' Phubuill is a very accessible Corbett hill. The most direct ascent approaches from Fassfern on Loch Eil and through forested Gleann Suileag. If intending to hike up nearby Beinn Bhan, then an approach from Glen Loy is preferred as the routes up these two Corbett hills are short enough to squeeze into one day.
