Culter Fell is the most popular, highest and most shapely of this rolling range of hills on the Lanarkshire / Borders boundary, south of Biggar.

Meall nan Tarmachan is one of the easier Munros to reach in good weather thanks to a high level start point, but it is really just the start of a rocky ridge traverse which is one of the most interesting in the Southern Highlands. There is a short, avoidable scramble on the descent from Meall Garbh. Good path to Munro summit and long ridge. Meall Garbh has a narrow ridge and an avoidable rocky scramble on the descent. After leaving the ridge the route crosses rough, boggy ground until it reaches a quarry, with only traces of a path. Finish on good track. OS518.3mile / 13.3kmStrenuous

Higher up the path is faint and boggy in places.Leaving Clarkston at 9am to catch 10.20 ferry from Gourock, arrives 10.45, then bus to Kilmun, leaving ferry for bus, which leaves at 10.50 (5 mins) OS634.8mile / 7.6kmModerate
