Why is the above not a Graham.It is shown on maps as 2023ft or 617m? Is it part of a range?

The walk starts from the Chapel Stone near Loch Faskally,Pitlochry.

Hi Ian,

To be a Graham, Meall a' Charra would have to have a drop (prominence) of at least 150m in all directions.

The drop between it and the Corbett Farragon Hill to the SW is only 45.1m (the lowest point is at NN 8876 5723) so it doesn't qualify as a Graham.

Thanks for that Dave,did it with a friend of mine on Tuesday and it was an interesting little climb with very good views.Same distance as Ben Vrackie but rougher going underfoot.Had previously done Farragon Hill a year or two ago.
