Quick Facts
This is the height of the mountain above sea level. However, on the climb, it is the ascent that matters, i.e. the sum of all the uphill parts of the route.
692 m (2270 ft)

This is the standard notation used on Ordnance Survey Landranger maps.

Each reference consists of two letters identifying a 100,000 metre square block then three digits defining the Easting and finally the three digits defining the Northing with reference to the South West corner of the block.

NN166712 is the grid reference for the summit of Ben Nevis. Where you are given the map number ( For Ben Nevis = 41) it is acceptable to omit the two initial letters e.g. 166712. (Instructions on how to read the references are given on the OS maps).

Mountain names are usually in Gaelic, the native language of the Scottish Highlands, or have been derived from the old Scots and Norse languages. We give the most commonly accepted meaning, but accept that some of these are disputed.
Hill of the Huntsman's Horn

The UK is covered by 204 Ordnance Survey Landranger 1:50,000 scale maps. Maps numbered 1 to 86 cover Scotland but for the highest mountains (Munros) only 23 maps are required. The name given roughly describes the area covered by the map.

OS Landranger Maps Required
  77   Dalmellington & New Galloway, Galloway Forest Park

A description of the characteristics of the mountain including any hazards of which you should be aware.

Mullwharchar is situated to the NE of Glen Trool and rises from the NE end of Loch Enoch.

It is sandwiched between the Corbetts The Merrick to the W and Corserine to the E.

It is just under 3.5km to the N of the Graham Craignaw and it would make sense to climb both together.

The end of the public road in Glen Trool provides closest access.

General Considerations
 Temperature decreases by 1degree C for every 100m of ascent.
 Wind usually increases with altitude.
 Visibility can change markedly with cloud level.
 River/Stream levels can increase markedly in one day.

Mullwharchar is well worth a visit albeit is over 3 hrs walk from the top Glen Trool carpark. The hill is maybe not much to look at but the views from the top are excellent with Merrick to the west , Craignaw to the south,Ring of Kells to the east and Loch Doon to the north. Combined with Craignaw and Merrick and you have a pretty big but memorable day.
