The 2014 Challenge, day 4: One Munro but no Mamore (9)

The upper slopes and rocky outcrops of Meall a' Chaorainn may look imposing from afar, but as you approach them it becomes increasingly apparent that, close-up, it is really a playful pussycat of a mountain. There are grass terraces which make it easy to get up and over the rocky bits ... although care IS still needed, because the best routes are well over to the left, and there are a number of places where the sensible choice is the slightly more difficult ascent, because the easier ascent leaves you uncomfortably exposed to a long tumble into the corrie if things go wrong. So not a difficult mountain, but one that nevertheless calls for care, and intelligent decision-making as to the route to be taken.
