Meall nan Ceapraichean is one of the northern Munros in the Beinn Dearg group. It is connected to Eididh nan Clach Gealato the north and Beinn Dearg to the south. The western and southern slopes are steep and craggy and are well seen from the western approach up Gleann na Sguaib.
The northern ridge arcs round Lochan a Chnapaich to join up with Eididh nan Clach Geala. Neither of these Munros are particularly high and both are dwarfed by Beinn Dearg to the south.
Most people access these hills from the west at the head of Loch Broom and follow the stalkers path through Gleann na Sguaib. From here you can ascend to the col between Beinn Dearg and the south ridge of Meall nan Ceapraichean.
The finest views from Meall nan Ceapraichean are undoubtedly of Beinn Dearg to the south. The complex nature of this fine Munro can be really appreciated from here. On a clear day the views north to the hills of The Fisherfield Forrest and the Assynt Munros is also worthy of the climb.
