Resting between Rannoch and Glen Lyon, Meall Buidhe is a gentle hill sitting in a remote location. Superb views from the summit cairn over Rannoch can be savoured on clear days.

The most often climbed route up Meall Buidhe is a there-and-back hike from the Giorra Dam at the eastern end of Loch an Daimh. Typically taking 3-4 hours, this leaves plenty of time to aim up Stuchd an Lochain on the opposite side of the loch later in the day.

The nearby Corbett Cam Creag, can be tagged in as a grassy detour from Meall Buidhe, adding around an hour or so into the route.
