Meall Gorm is a rounded hill in the eastern half of the Fannichs mountain range. Heather and grass covered on its lower slopes, much of its higher ground and crest is boulder covered. Probably its most interesting feature is the remains of the old stalkers shelter just east of the summit, the roof fell in in the early '90s and has since collapsed further.

Although the most direct route to Meall Gorm is via a stalkers path from Fannich Lodge, the hill sits on a wide crest, halfway between An Coileachan and Sgurr Mor. Meall Gorm is therefore most likely to be bagged on a hike involving these two Munros to which routes vary depending on approach.
