Meall a Chrasgaidh is one of the more accessible Munros of the Fannaichs due to its close proximity to the A835 road just north of it. The summit itself is rather rounded and lacks the height and a lot of the features which make its neighbouring Munros so well known. The eastern and northern slopes however are steeper and possess several crags. The summit lies on a NW-SE broad ridge. The SE ridge leads to an 819m col which leads on to several other Munros. The access routes that stem from this col mak it an extremely important location and the hill takes its name from it. The NW ridge drops down to the head of Loch a Bhraoin and it is the usual route of ascent. The eastern slopes as mentioned are the most impressive overlooking Loch a Mhadaidh. The Munros to the south of Meall a Chrasgaidh can happily be included in a long route and make for a fantastic day out on the hills.
Meall a Chrasgaidh is well seen from the A835 to the north.
