MONEGA HILL CIRCUIT
Sunday 6th July
Distance 16k 10miles Ascent 600 m
Terrain mainly good estate track OS map 43
This is a beautiful walk forming a part of the Monega Pass from (193697) Glen Isla and continues up the broad grassy ridge of Monega Hill. We enjoy superb views from the summit cairn (186756) deep into the Glens below and beyond towards the Drumochter Hills and to the south as far as Stirling.
From Monega Hill (908m) we have a slight descent followed by a gentle climb to Little Glas Moal (973m) a Munro top (175760). A good estate track swings SW and takes us down to the pretty wooded area at the foot of the hill from then we retrace a short section of track by the river back to the car park.
Walkers must wear walking boots, carry WARM and waterproof clothing, hat and gloves and take plenty food and liquids. THESE ARE ESSENTIAL. Be prepared for all weathers. If the weather is hot take plenty fluids with you.
