Beinn Leoid and Meallan a’ Chuail are remote charismatic peaks in the area between Loch Merkland and Glen Coul north west of Loch Shin. They are most easily approached by a stalkers path that leaves the A838 west of the head of the pass between Loch More and Loch Merkland. Beinn Leoid (792m) is a Corbett and the further of the two from the road. Meallan a’ Chuail is a pleasant and quite shapely 750m summit just short of Corbett status and is well worth combining with an ascent of Beinn Leoid.
These hills are good view points to look into the remote area of eastern Assynt, from the head of Loch Glencoul to Beinn Uidhe and Ben More Assynt, and the watery head of Glen Cassley and give great views down the expanse of Loch Shin and the Flow Country across to Ben Klibreck.
