Meall Dearg (Aonach Eagach)

This is one of UK’s finest ridge scrambles. For 200m you’re walking along a desperately narrow and jagged tightrope of rock. There are precipitous drops on either side – and yet in good conditions it’s exhilarating rather than terrifying.   It’s an airy ridge walk that leads you to a high top between the wild Blackmount range and the Lake-District–sized emptiness of Rannoch Moor.
