West of Glen Feshie and near the foot of Glen Tromie, the heather-clad lump of Meallach Mhor along with its two side-kicks Meallach Bheag and Meall an Dubh-chadha, stand in a fairly remote corner of the Cairngorms.

The most pleasant route up Meallach Mhor begins with a cycle down the estate roads through beautiful Glen Tromie to reach some remote hydro-works from where the start of a lovely hillwalking route takes in this hill along with nearby Carn Dearg Mor.
