Creag Mhor and Beinn Heasgarnich

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

These two Munros give one of the more challenging outings for baggers in this part of the Highlands, requiring experience as it crosses some potentially difficult pathless terrain. Creag Mhor is steep and craggy on the ascent with much character; Beinn Heasgarnich is something of a let-down, moated with vast areas of peat bog.


Tough hillwalking, often without paths. The ascent to Sron nan Eun is steep and craggy and requires care and navigational skill. The descent from Beinn Heasgarnich heads across peat-hagged and featureless terrain.
