NN3815 : Summit of Meall Mr

taken 12 years ago, near to Meall Mr [hill or Mountain], Stirling, Great Britain

Summit of Meall Mòr
Summit of Meall Mr
Normality is restored. The usual state of a Scottish hilltop in summer. A rainy break from the heatwave, yet I was told it was sunny at the east end of Loch Katrine at the time. This is quite normal, often the high ground on the West Coast raises the moist air high enough to condense out the Atlantic humidity as a fine rain, leaving little left for the east. Air descending from these heights warms too. Areas in the lee of hills are often very warm and dry.

Meall Mr is a notoriously steep hill 747m high above Rob Roy MacGregor's old farm of Glengyle. It has many landslips and its complex topography must have been very good for hiding MacGregors and their booty.
