Corbett hill overlooking Stronelairg wind farm

Meall na h-Aisre is a fairly remote Corbett hill at the western end of the Monadhliath. Recent power generation construction have spoilt views northwards, but aid access !

At the western end of the Monadhliath, Meall na h-Aisre is a fairly remotte and featureless Corbett hill. Recent man-made intrusions caused by electrical pylon installation and construction of the Stronelairg windfarm and Glendoe dam do blight the views north and north-west, but also make for easy and quick access !

The most obvious choice of route would be from the Old Military Road running alongside the River Spey, from where a quick hike up a bulldozed track reaches close to Meall na h-Aisre's summit.

Adding in Gairbeinn to the west of Meall na h-Aisre makes for a fine circular route with fairly challenging navigation over the moorland between the summits should mist be down.

The undulating high moorland above the River Spey just east of the Corrieyairack Pass has several rolling hills, two of which are distinctive enough to justify Corbett status. Navigation skills will be tested on the high ground, particularly in misty conditions.
