Glen Meann land rover track begins at a three-way intersection with Glen Finglas Reservoir Road
and Glen Finglas
land rover track. It passes through pastoral farmland (expect to see plenty of cattle and/or sheep). It follows the creek up the valley most of the way with the 2,211 foot Meall Cala summit to the west. The uphill grade is generally pretty easy until you get to about the 3.0 mile mark and then you've got to go up 400 feet in 0.5 mile.
Ignore the hillwalking track that branches to the right in the middle of this nasty climb. At the top of this 400 foo climb, you'll reach a saddle and you're rewarded with a sweeping view into an isolated valley beyond Meall Cala. At the saddle, the landrover track degrades to a doubletrack but you've got a mile or so of easier grade (including a short descent) before the climb resumes.
Finally at 9.0 miles overall, you'll reach a large rock cairn which indicates you've reached the top of the climb. The trail continues downhill as Glen Finglas
Of course, you can ride this track in reverse, but the climb up Glen Finglas
landrover track is more difficult.
