Beinn nan Oighreag and Meall nam Maigheach

Two for the price of one, a lovely wintery walk

Ascending from the road, up the shoulder of Creag Dhubh.  Shoulder of Meall nam Maigheach on the left, with Ben Lawers behind, and the Tarmachan Ridge to the right.  Saw them plenty.

Once up a bit I could see Stuchd an Lochain and Garbh Mheall to the north.

Hills.  Ben Lawers again

Looking the same way, including the Tarmachan Ridge

And from the North top - south west to Meall Ghaordaidh I think.

Yep, Meall Ghaordaidh, Loch Lyon, Stuchd an Lochain, and Loch an Daimh on the right.  

True summit to the south, and Ben More and Stob Binnein

The actual top I think, looking to my next hill Meall nam Maigheach on the left and Ben Lawers range on the right.

And a nicer picture of Meall Ghaordaidh

And the third top, with Ben More on the left, Meall Ghaordaidh in the middle

Heading back down, a view of Meall nam Maigheach.  Decided the direct ascent route was best, so pretty much straight up there!

Starting the ascent.

Bit of a view - Ben Lawers, Lochan na Lairige, Tarmachan Ridge, and more

Top of Meall nam Maigheach, with Tarmachan Ridge.  Time to go home.
