SCHIEHALLION & MEALL BUIDHE
Schiehallion situated not far from the village of Kinloch Rannoch at the east end of the loch, is known to be one of the most interesting and romantic of the Scottish mountains.
The distinctive conical shape of Schiehallion @ 3,547 feet, is one of the best known landmarks and viewpoints in the Central Highlands.
The name translates into either 'The Maiden's Pap' or the 'Seat of the Caledonian Fairies' or the 'Fairy Hill of the Caledonians'. The mountain is graded to be challenging. For the energetic this 'Munro' is well worth the climb, the views from the summit are breathtaking.
